Mailing List Idiots
Soo.. I recently began moderating an Inu Yasha Mailing listwith approximately 500 members, way too many of whom seem to have NO concept of netiquette and how mailing lists work. The latest person I banned I knew from them having started a flame war with an older member a few months ago and for their gems of messages of the like:
"So, eleloi, that IY cel is yours? the REAL one? You think I can uh, have it?"
with about 3 pages of attatched message. One of my pet peeves being One Liners with long attatched messages >.<
Also, no less than *3* messages similar to this:
"Does any1 know when new eps of IY are coming on CN???????? I need to know!"
even after people had repeatedly posted cartoon network's schedule and explained that no-one knew any more than that and most of the members didn't care.
Then they sent two forwards to the ML. I sent them a formal warning and put them on Moderation. I proceeded to repost the rules to the entire ML explaining that fowards and one liners etc were unacceptable and we were going to start banning repeat offenders. So she send ANOTHER forward. That really lame one promising that Bill Gates will send you money if you send it to enough people >.<
So, being quite fed up with this, and having very little tolerance for people who send spam to MLs of 500 people I wrote the following, slightly cranky, Banning notice( banning notice )
and I got the following ( message )
along with this pleasant little afterthought:
Also, excuse me for bothering you again, but did you not say in your "rules" that if you were directing constructive critism or in a debate to be MATURE about it? I don't know if you were giving me constructive critism or trying to place me in some kind of debate but whatever it was, you were not being mature about it. Sorry I had to send such a short message but it's just a little something I had to get off my chest. Not to be rude or offensive in ANY way whatsoever. Again thank you for taking time to read my message.
I replied (which I shouldn't have wasted my time doing, but I was amused byt their idiocy) and got this back. Now they're just ( boring me )
They even ( IMed )
my fellow moderator who had got in on things when I told her what a pain he girl was being:
And now they're finally sending me these repeated messages:
Hello! Nice to talk to you again. I was just wondering if there was any way I could be placed back into the ML.
I'll give em a chance to come up with one more amusing wanky reply and then I blocking them from my email.
