This thread is an introduction on how to report hackers, spammers and troublemakers in the forum.

The problems encountered in social networking or other anonymous online communities typically fall into three categories. These could be ID theft, fraud and privacy abuses; cyberbullying, cyberstalking and harassment and sexual predators, con artists and sexual exploitation.

What if I see something offensive?

You will find 'Report' links in many places throughout the board. These links allow you to alert the board staff to anything which you find to be offensive, objectionable or illegal.

Offending comments and content can also be reported to us anonymously by sending a PM (http://www.tapingandjointing.com/forum/private.php?do=newpm&u=2).

Can I block posts, emails and messages from specific users?

If there are particular members that bother you and you do not want to see their posts or receive Private Messages and emails from them, then you can add these members to your 'Ignore List'. There are several ways to do this:

Through your User Control Panel: User CP (http://www.tapingandjointing.com/forum/usercp.php), Settings & Options, Edit Ignore List (http://www.tapingandjointing.com/forum/profile.php?do=ignorelist). Then, type their name into the empty text box and click 'Okay'.

It was the first time I've had to ban a member for troublemaking because they could have ended my marriage on Saturday night with a loose message intended for someone else they were harrassing. They wont get the opportunity to make the same mistake twice and thats all I can say, sorry.

It's still business as usual though, I only added this thread as information to help anyone who may have this problem in future and what to do to make it stop. The site rules were also ammended to close any loopholes.
