OK, I’ve had enough. Its time to clamp down again because some people at this site are spoiling it for the majority…. Two clarifications now, and I shall start acting on any requests sent to firstname.lastname@example.org that I find to be accurate and infringe on the Terms and Conditions (URL later) and these two extra notes which will be added to the T&C in due course.
1) If you are banned from leaving comments on someones diary, you respect that ban and you walk away. Period. Do NOT create a new account with a different name and leave your rubbish to the same diary again. Failure to observe this simple request will result in all your accounts being banned, Premium or not. Period.
2) If you accuse someone of being someone else you will be banned. Period. I am sick and tired of hearing ‘BasicTruth is Franny’ or ‘BasicTruth is DaffyDucks mother’ or ‘BasicTruth is NeutronICs sister’. None of you know who is who here, so shut the fuck up. I will ban any muppet that decides to throw their ill advised mouths around slandering other users. I might even consider suing you for defamation of character or slander of someone in a public place.
Thats it for now, I have no doubt I will think of some other things to add, but for those that are unsure, read the terms and conditions. Anything you provably do outside of those risk you getting banned. http://www.deardiary.org/aup.html for those with goldfish memories.
If necessary I will restrict new accounts to valid, non free, email addresses as well, since many of these spoonhandles causing problems are registering from Yahoo or Hotmail.
I sincerely apologise to the 99.75% of legitimate users for the tone of this post, if you’re a legit user you’ll never need to worry about it and I sincerely apologise for taking your valuable time having to read this drivel…
To the other 0.25% of the users here, do you really think we spent all this time and effort to create a system that you could just abuse and use as a tool to create drama’s for other people who just want to get on with their lives? We didn’t. This is our living room, the 0.25% who are coming into our living room and pissing on our sofa and wanking under our dining table are hereby notified we will not tolerate it any longer. My decision will be final in all matters, this isn’t a democracy, there’s no freedom of speech issues because we’re not a government authority, so for the 0.25% of trouble makers, here is my ass and you can kiss it.
Thats it. I hope I make myself, and my annoyance, perfectly clear even to the thickest of that 0.25% (and I know who most of you are, so start behaving or start leaving).
P.S. If you want a customer services type response if you reply to this, don’t mail me, you won’t get one. My Political Correctness gene is chemically subdued right now and isn’t likely to return when relating to muppets. Write to email@example.com – a much more tolerant and spiritually advanced person replies to those (notably Paivi!).
