Night of Shame for MS Forum

The comments below should serve as a reminder that other posters (especially newbies) should be treated with respect.

It is a shame that we might lose another potentially decent contributor to Mystery Shopping Forum because of the over aggressive comments of others.

I will continue to offer support to those who are wronged on this website. It is my way of saying thanks to the great and good of this website.

Thank you, moosehoose...I didn't realize this forum was filled with with 'snark-loving', know-it-all, jump in to criticize anyone who happens to offend those who think they are so much better than anyone else...NO, I'm not a new shopper...but new to this Forum, and sad to say its a huge disappointment...
The purpose of this was to bring shoppers together and to help each other out, but all I see are snide, demeaning comments about a person's mental capacity OR the honesty of how they may have performed a shop...(this wasn't about me).
What a bunch of snooty, ....... well, I won't join them in berating anyone they disagree with...I'm SOOOOOOO terribly sorry to have offended 'parhcitybrian' who posted the original message about the 10 worst shops...
Glad I'm an honest, law-abiding citizen so I'd never have to have any of this bunch on a jury panel for me...certain to be convicted....And Brian, I don't NEED you to 'cut back the snark'...who the heck are YOU, anyway?
Pathetic!

No. The original thread is still up but I believed the comments posted above warranted a separate thread.

The original thread is by a gentleman named ParkCItyBrian. It focuses on the 10 worst MS companies. You can find it using the search function.

Thanks for your support.
oy vey...i just don't where to begin with this.

there is soooo verrrry much to comment on but, because of my proclivity for civility, common courtesy and a continual effort not to hurt/singe widdle fee-fees, i won't.

and...i refuse, steadfastly refuse, adamantly refuse, to stoop to the level of the poster to justify/refute these scurrilous statements. with that being said, however, i'm not above "when they go low...i go lower", tho.

and, thankfully, my sense-of-humor/snark remains intact and i always "consider the source".

pearls are meant to be worn and not clutched, francine

the seriousness and tone of the poster, did, however, provide......great hilarity.

i confess, tho, to basking in the light of being the topic of conversation and having a topic/subject devoted to.........me (with attribution to your president...not mine but yours).

whoops, a political statement which i'll be castigated for ??????

Oh my, we do seem to have more than our share of drama queens lately. Multiple threads with SHAME in the title are tending toward nothing more than click bait.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time and it really annoys the pig.
It is amazing what is allowed to stay in this forum when some people start threads with the obvious intent of stirring up trouble and dissension.
I notice Dreamweaver is posting on the forum as of today...so to the OP, your drama was for nothing, and it wasn't your place to post about her, or were you trying to embarrass her, just by stirring the pot...drama and no one here has shame...#speak for yourself.

I am in no supporting you as far as starting this thread. I merely asked if it had been moderated because that would be the first step in rectifying a situation. Starting a thread like this is only going to result in more drama, insults, and work for the mods.

We do have several tools at our disposal. Toggle works well as does ignoring offending posts. What does not work so well, creating a brand new thread to comment about another thread and somehow equate it to shame for the entire group. I am not my brother's keeper nor am I responsible for what other's post. If you feel another member has been wronged, by all means stand up for them, just do it on the original thread.

Irene, why do you need to respond to all of my comments with the same kind of cookie cutter responses? You must have done it at least 30 times now.

PCB,I doubt anyone would bother inviting you anywhere as you are most bitter and twisted person I have ever come across.

i've decided to stay above the fray.

oh wait...i find that sparring with you to be less than satisfying. i can't even get a semi-snark going.

your hot takes aren't even tepid. if revenge is best served cold then...congrats and kudos.

it's kinda/sorta like you're bringing a knife to a gun fight or (better metaphor)...a match to a flamethrower contest.

and...i strongly suggest you don't engage in a war of cliches, cuz you just ain't gonna win, francine

and...i further strongly suggest you somehow get a sense-of-humor cuz you're kinda/sorta like the 2002
episode of the simpsons , "old man yells at clouds" and "hey, you kids get off my lawn".

just up my alley (said my somewhat juvenile self and seconded by my gf, who somehow puts up with my shenanigans).
Well done PCB, the saintly Irene has joined your fan club. She does a lot of work for charity but she doesn't like talking about it so people say.
Obvious troll is obvious. Not gonna say who so I don't get my post deleted. We all know who. Don't give the troll any attention because that is what they really want. I know from "experience".

YOU don't know @#$%& about me, stop with the lies and pretending your the leader of the pack.....let's agree to disagree and I won't mention you (which I never do) and you don't mention me....so, on a lighter note, clue me in as to my "charity work", or.make some friends of your own......smiling smiley

Irene, You broadcast your life here. Everyone knows everything about you. The 'bumps in the road' with your daughter, all the good deeds you perform, all about the people you have entertained and met in the past, all about your housing situation, all about your jewelry and wedding ring etc... If someone wanted, they could go through your posts and write your total life story.

I would love to toggle you but you bring up my name in random threads and start hijacking the threads I start even though the threads have nothing to do with you and you don't even like the topics I introduce.

wow...it seems like someone has just a little too much time on one's hands?

allow me, if i may, to dive right in.

without any background (which i really don't care about) my take (a someone hot one) is that irene's charitable endeavors begin and end with her being charitable in not calling you out for what you are...

a dour, sullen, dreary, joyless curmudgeon who sucks the energy in prolly everyone and everything around you.

a glass half empty kinda person who has a perpetual scowl and needs to say things like "night of shame" thinking that kind of grandiose opening generates credibility and gins up a false narrative. well guess what, francine, it just doesn't resonate with folks that have no problem in seeing through obvious transparencies.
Not getting involved in this kind of discussion again. Suffice to say, I agree with the majority of posters on here.

Don't make comments if you don't want to get involved. A couple of days ago you ended up with egg on your face after being called out by a veteran poster you tried to snark.

Learn from your past mistakes.

har, perhaps the richest thing about this..."Learn from your past mistakes" demands the one who is tone deaf about prolly (it saves having to type a few letters, btw) everything. '

and, while i'm at it..."btw" = by the way (another time saver) which is prolly another thing you learned from me.
your welcome.
