Hello and Welcome

A long time ago Pania wrote the message below to Newcomers or anyone who comes across a troll on the forum


Over the last few weeks we have had a number of "troll" attacks on the boards.

What is a Troll?
A troll is a person that posts deliberately provocative, nasty or hurtful comments on threads. They may be a person with no previous connection to the board or someone that has created a pseudonym to get their point made. If you should get such a comment made on any thread you post, asking for help and advice, please realise this comment is not directed at you personally so please ignore these nasty comments and continue to post here as normal because the majority of us really are a lovely bunch – ooops, modesty!

What should I do if I get a comment made on my thread?
Firstly do not respond to the comment as this is invariably what the troll wants. So to get rid of the offending post, at the bottom of the post towards the right hand side you’ll see a red "Warning" triangle within a blue “Report” icon, as shown below:


Click the icon and then "send" the message which will inform the MSE team of the post, who will then review its content and deal with it as appropriate; sometimes even deleting the troll by making their status PPR’d (Posting Privileges Removed). Remember, this site is an asset to so many people, especially those that feels like their world is falling in around them. There is a wealth of knowledgeable people here all willing to help, whatever you do, do not let the comments of one silly individual deter you from availing yourself of the knowledge base that is on offer here.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE FORUM

It is testament to the work that Martin has done and continues to do that so many people give their time, knowledge and experience freely to others; without judgement, to lift people out of the depths of their debt crisis


PLEASE DO NOT LET THE ACTIONS OF THE MINORITY RUIN THAT

Weird - cos when I hover over my link it shows the address the same as yours
http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/site/forum-faqs#troll

and does link through to the right place. but when I hover over HLs quote of mine its wrong. ?? The gremlins have obviously spotted the thread - perhaps the trolls sent them! I'll edit the post.

Morning everyone, what a horrible day outside, we'll have to stay bright and cheerful here to counteract that

Thanks for the tea boult

Good to see you again Swanny x

It's horrible here, HM, blowing a gale and been raining all day so far Hope your day goes quickly, I know what it's like to have nothing to do all day and I'd far rather be busy...

Hello lovely people

Thanks for the tea boult.

Lets have some cake with it...



Looks like someone has already had a piece.
I wonder who that could be?
