Not having had to report anyone (yet!!) do MSE get back to you in anyway to justify their (in)action?

Only when the ppr'd person finally snaps, is action taken - and then against the person that snapped - NOT the people that drove them to snapping in the first place.

Breeding Ground for Hate - Continued.
In response to Martins post.
As you can see, from this thread
Nothing has changed, and reporting to abuse has proven futile for one poster.
It appears, you if a victim, can report to abuse, but the victim can be driven past breaking point, till the snap, and what happens, its not the people that CAUSED that to happen that are PPR'd - no its the victim.
I regard that thread as a example of a hate *crime*, and MSE complicit in the crime.
Its NOT ACCEPTABLE for this to go on, its illegal behaviour as far as I am concerned, and the site was warned.
How long is this going to go on for? Until someone commits suicide at the hands of MSE users and the abuse team perhaps.....

One of the first things to come to terms with, with regard to the internet, is that people post anonymously by hiding behind usernames, which is necessary of course to protect one's true identity, but precisely because of this some immature individuals see their chance to give vent to the nasty, mean side of their nature and respond to others in a way they would never dare do to their faces. Some others are just nasty to anyone anywhere.
We cannot choose who responds to a thread and to our posts, but that is no reason to feel powerless and helpless in the face of abuse and/or catty remark. One can choose to ignore these people, or one can choose to respond and escalate the unpleasantness. The choice is ours and ours alone.
Reporting abuse is all very well, but ultimately the user has the option to allow someone to upset them, or just walk past. Besides, not responding to abuse (or granting a very limited response) is far more effective and earns respect for not contributing to a slanging match.
