I don't think Admin has changed their position on this since my last post about a PM Function that was back in early 2011.  I bolded where Admin states their position on PM:

We know that there has been a number of requests for a PM function on the boards.  As Trekwolf164 just mentioned, we have been tackling a number of other glitches amd a bunch of member requests such as linking to last post from the day/time line and getting notifications when people post on your profile.  More importantly, we wanted to see how members interact with each other and within the board community. 

After much discussion, we will not be adding a PM function at this time.  We like how members are using the boards and how 'open' the conversations are.  As many of you know, we have worked hard to keep the boards clean and inviting to fans of all ages.  We can best do this through open boards.

We're not saying 'never', just not in the near future.  We're always listening to your suggestions and reminders (thanks Matthias on reminding us to pull down the video maintainence thread) and we have some other improvements coming based on your suggestions (e.g. auto-lock old threads). 

Please keep posting any tech issues on the Tech thread and keep giving us any suggestions on the New Ideas thread.  We're looking at those threads every day.

I miss having a PM system here as well. I made a few good friends because of the old PM system.


 


It was a great way to get to know the other members without taking threads off topic, etc. It also helped me to resolve a few issues behind the scenes and prevented trouble on the boards at times.

I've never been on a site without a personal-message function.  I was thinking it was something that came with post-count here--the way some boards do it.  I didn't know that the site lacked a basic function that every other site seems to have.  It would be nice to get ot know people in a more informal setting.  Given recent events I'm not very comfortable sharing a lot of personal information on this site. 


As for "cyberbullies" I think the spammer who rendered the site useless for so long proved that you don't need a PM system to bully people.  And on the other sites I belong towith a PM system, I've never noticed people using it to form "facations"; there's usually very clear and enforced guidelines on what you can and can't say in personal-messages.

You know, when you google just the words "Butt Board", Somerleds website doesn't show up.


However if you google "Butt Board Somerled", the link pops right up there, and you can see for yourselves the slander towards ST.com.


Oh, and Chud is another dual of Somerled? For shame! He just never learns! He just comes here as duals to get fuel for more slander towards ST.com. It's so very sad.

^ To Chudd:


CO Fowler is not attacking Scooby at all! Quite the contrary. She seems to be defending her by pointing out that the two boards you mentioned were in fact started by scooby and that you are calling her a troll. You are also making erroneous accusations that those boards were started by other people, people that we know Scooby is not on the best of terms with.


I myself find that surprising. I thought you were good friends with Scooby.

Thanks, Joy


 


For Chud, in the post of yours that I quoted, you had said that Nexcalibur was, and I quote ~


"Nexcalibur (by Beccs & SB63 & Chronic and someone called CornishMonkey and a couple other trolls),"


while I was simply correcting you and pointing out that a person that goes by ScoobyDoo, she used to post on ST.com with that name, is the owner and administrator of that particular board.  And that since you have claimed that Nexcalibur, as well as other boards, are run/owned by trolls that one could wonder if you are then implying that ScoobyDoo is a troll also.

So, to clarify in such a way that even you and others should be able to understand.....I am not, in any way, shape or form, calling ScoobyDoo any name.  I am simply pointing out that ScoobyDoo owns/runs is Admin of the board called Nexcalibur and asking if you, Chud, are calling or implying that ScoobyDoo is a troll since you have made it clear that you think &/or have included her board in with the others that you have stated you believe are run/owned by those you have decided are trolls.


Also, I was curious so I checked at SisterTrek and the Holy Frak thread had been closed for some time that I could see.  Last post in that thread was from an Admin of that board December 2010.  Hmm, just checked again.  Seems that thread ran from September to December 2010.  Not any 'new' trolling going on there that I can see.


Anyhoo, hope that this clarifies things for Chud and others.

While I've heard of Nextcalibur I don't know much about who's there or what it's like, never been there.

So to clear up comfusion the board I meant was called LastCalibur and not NextCalibur.  From what I'm told LastCalibur was specifically set up to viciously attack this board, the admins here, Somerled and Scoobydog and was full of blatant liars, misrepresentations, libelous personal attacks and even posted death threats against Somerled and Scoobydog. I'm told there are screencaptures of all this at Nextcalibur as proof of the kind of creatures who were there.

OK are we clear now.

The common thread to all this is that if you fall out with these creatures and report them and they get banned, they'll set out to assassinate your character and defame you and their stooges will cyberbully and stalk you all over the internet to make your life a mizery and God help you if they find out your real world ID and address and can get to you in the real world too. These people are pscychopaths and are vicious and vindictive.

That is all.


I never trust screencaptures.  They're too easy to fake.  If someone is claiming screencaptures are proof-positive of something, then I assume automatically they've been faked.

I think a lot of the stuff in your post is utter bullcrap.  It reads like a bunch of rumors and gossip has been told to you and you're buying into it and repeating it.  I wouldn't trust anything any of them told you.  They all sound like a pack of spoiled kids trying to blame the other kid for starting it.  That goes for both sides of this.

you aren't a previously banned troll too are you Bix.

pull your heads in wissa and BamBam.  I've seen you pair doing plenty or baiting and flaming and trolling


-http://www.startrek.com/boards-topic/33371912/congratulations-admin?page=3


 


Perhaps wissa knows the actual spammer-troll's ID and is covering for him and muddying the water in his behalf 


-http://www.startrek.com/boards-topic/33371912/congratulations-admin?page=3


 


Maybe this Bill person (who sounds like a troll to me) is the spammer and all this spamming and denial of service attacks and trolling is all intended to help drive everyone from here to the board he wants us all to go to.


-http://www.startrek.com/boards-topic/33371912/congratulations-admin?page=1


 



These instances were found by looking through the first three pages of Ten Forward. No other forum was used.


Scummerchud, if you delete those posts and deny posting them, you will present the final proof of your troll heritage.

Well if he takes screencaptures as being serious evidence, maybe someone should make screencaptures of his posts as evidence.

Somerled, the only thing you're worried about with a pm system are users exposing your dual accounts (i.e., "Chud is here") to other users. You don't want anyone talking about you, or it will hurt your wittle feewings...


You were probably one of those little fat kids that squeeled on your classmates for passing notes in class.
