who invited your two cents? I don't recall? As a matter of fact, I don't recall inviting any of you miscreants for advice or critique. I was specifically asking for someone that is a full time MS and then all the bile comes out and the mouth breathers start to chime in. like I said before, nothing for you here move along. what a bunch of time of the monthers.

Wales IS a full-time mystery shopper, as are many other forum members, Beisen.

then why the diatribe? and venemous spewing, if she is a full time MS, Is she just itching for an argument? it speaks ill of her and all who simply think they must respond to anything and everything. I suggest she get a job, If she is full time , she seems to have plenty of spare time to shoot the breeze here. I just checked the posts and she is all over like diarrhea. I have not been here in months because quite simply, I am too busy. I think she is full of crap.

Hi Beisen - I don't meet your qualifications as I only did 642 shops last year and I think that's probably about half-speed. Just want to share a thought that you might get better information from the full time shoppers if you approach with a more cordial attitude which does not insult the part timers. We're all in this together, and you don't seem to be together. I know you don't want to hear from me because I'm a part timer, but you don't get to decide who gets to post. I think starting your own site is a great idea. The sooner, the better.

Yes, I don't want to hear from part timers as my original post indicated. Do you talk to someone when they ask you not to do so? you probably do, may God save your spouse, keep your witticisms to yourself. If you don't like my posts ignore it and move on. I don't want to hear from you and you don't need to respond. Try to control your distaff tendencies. Mary.

I don't come here to make friends and I really don't give a hoot if you or anyone out there likes me. I have more knowledge about this business than the next 100 of you combined and I am seeking someone on my level to connect with. If you find that insulting too bad, get over it. If I see those whom I seek are not here, then I will be gone, most assuredly and you hens can have the house back to fluff your feathers and talk about how much you know, like that shopgal character and the wales personality, who only post here and work as little as possible but do an awful lot of jabbering. Do the math people ..with over 4000 posts how in heck is she able to do anything but run her mouth.? Little work, lots of blabber, good grief!

All I have to say is this is a most enjoyable and laughable thread! Thanks for the entertainment. Beisen, thid was not meant as a post for you as I am very part time, but even so I am very intelligent, and intellectual too I might add (and female to boot, but i guess I do not qualify as a housewife since I have a full time professional job on the side). So I hope you did not bother reading the above. If you did just strike it from your memory.

While I always admire candor and succinctness, both of which beison has displayed, without civility they are traits that are unbecoming. His rudeness to several posters, in my opinion, is extremely unacceptable. Posters who have in the past, and currently, share their experiences and offer aid to those in need. I've no recollection of ever making a forum-wide request, so this is a first: Please shun this individual and make no further reference, or reply in any manner.

I have taken myself off of mystery shopping companies lists if I do not make the kind of money that I expect. I write companies to let them know why I wish to be removed from their list of shoppers. As to $10.00 for a shop to drive even 20 minutes, take a photo and do a one hour report, it is not really worth my time and energy. I recently had a hard drive crash and had no computer for five days. The mystery shop client would not pay me for my explanation, which I believe was really valid. The $10.00 was not worth it, nor was it to be refused by the mystery shopping company and its client. We are valuable in the mystery shopping community. Believe that you are really worth more than what most companies are paying these days.

Wow, two rude, judgmental, misogynistic trolls in one day. Is that a record?

Why would anyone, whether they meet his "qualifications" or not, want to bother telling him their personal financial details as he demands? What possible business is it of his how much anyone, full time or not, makes from mystery shopping?

I suspect this is nothing more than high school locker room competitiveness, wanting to know if his is bigger than everyone else's......

Hello again Beisen. Thank you for responding to my response. God already saved my spouse, but thank you for your kind and thoughtful comment which has intensified my previous impression. I'm hoping you can get your private forum up and running right away. This would be to everyone's benefit, especially yours since you are so upset that other shoppers dare to post regardless of whether they meet your specifications. How arrogant is it to come on the forum and post a request for personal financial information without divulging any of your own, and then give instructions about who may and may not reply? Who would have ever thought that might not work out well? What made you think we would take instruction? Just for you, I've given up wit and started asking questions. Do you like that better?

I have been waiting on the side lines reading the posts and have been very amused. I am new here and was wondering whether or not to join in. This beison has some nerve. How dare he try to tell anyone that he is better than anyone else? He may have experience but he has no common sense. He needs to get with the flow of the forum and stop expressing his views. After all, why should any of us put up with this ?

If you click on anyone's name it will take you to a screen showing things like the number of posts and how long they have been a member. In his case, he no longer exists.

The forum has moderators who can deactivate someone and people do not get booted for disagreeing. Hell, if that happened we wouldn't have much of a forum. The only things I've seen that would guarantee someone get shown the door are recurring spam posts and abusive behavior.

I thought this is supposed to be a private forum, I was not aware they can sensor people, that makes me very leery to say things.

First, there is nothing private about the forum. Anyone can read it and anyone can join. Second, there is no censorship, but there are posting guidelines.

Unless you are here to try and sell us something or want to call everyone a bunch of rude names, why would you be concerned?

I am not concerned because of that, I was curious as to why someone who calls someone a rude name does not get banned, such as Troll? I have seen many posts against beson calling it to him and it seems it is selective. That is what concerns me. I guess my problem is censorship on any level. Yes, he might be obnoxious, but I did not see the need to be censored, ignored maybe, but not censored, who may be next?

so rude names gets censored? who determines what is rude? the moderators? so this is really a controlled forum? if something is said that no one agrees with they can be banned as long as enough agree? going back to my original concern.

As far as I know, it is very rare for someone to get banned. Why do you thing that Beisen was banned rather than left voluntarily?

Bigkahuna1, I think you're overthinking this. We're a friendly group and we agree to disagree. It's only when an obvious troll like Biesen and Goosechicken show up that the moderators will do anything.

I have no idea, I was picking up on what its a secret said, she (he) seemed very definitive about it, but I hope that is not the case. It would diminish us all. The free and open exchange of ideas is what a forum is supposed to be. Yes there will always be those that are contrary to public opinion, but that is precisely why we need to keep this open and never ban anyone. It is a very slippery slope and I am reluctant to get involved in something if I feel it is contrary to my beliefs.

Reading one thread does not really provide a good overview of anyone posting on it and the forum as a whole.

you see there you go with the names, you just called him a troll, how is that acceptable any more so than what he may or may not have said? I don't get it? can you explain this double standard? I hear this all the time when one group claims moral high ground.and when they do the same thing as they accuse the other group of doing it is somehow acceptable?

you can justify name calling because somehow you are superior in some manner? like group think? majority rules and no one has any rights if the majority rules it so? wow, that is very scary.
