Have you ever 'talked back' to the CM Admin when they've sent you a PM because someone reported a remark you made?

Someone reported me for a comment I made. This person made a smart ass remark to a quote and response I made to someone else and I asked her: "Was I even talking to you? Are you illiterate or just a nosey bitch?" and CM Admin seems to think I was insulting her. I wrote back to tell them I was doing no such thing- I simply asked her some questions and if she felt insulted perhaps those questions hit a little too close to home. I usually just ignore the report but this time it pissed me off just a little too much to ignore.

Have you ever defended yourself when reported or do you just let it slide?

  • actually i have. I did not think what i said was offensive, i know that i rarely hit below the belt & fight farely. So, i wanted to let the admin know that they were lame along with the person who reported me. I have alo reported some insulting comments that have been made to me & admin said they didn't find the offensive, So, when i got reported for something so small...i got upset. I RARELY report anyone. In fact, i think i only did it that one time. And i thought it was justified....they didn't think so. BUT, when someone goes reporting me for something small....i get the warning message. I think some of the admins are total LAME-O's!

  • I don't really care what they say to me. I'm just glad I got my point across before they deleted it :P

  • So far I haven't been reported, but I would most definitely defend myself especially if I was not in the wrong.

  • Yes...after a poster had harassed me for a while,I told her to leave me alone and something else...can't remember...and then I was reported. I never use filthy words,never use the "F" word here or in my everyday life,but I was reported. So I defended myself. I think I was justfied in defending myself since so many times other posters say terrible things,use bad language but aren't reported. It got pretty bad .And I don't let people run over me and I won't just take the abuse....

  • Wow sounds like an exchange you and I have had. What a baby to report you for that. She also probably the type of Mom I can't stand. You know when their kids get in too deep and go running to Mommy to and Mommy only listens to their side? Won't even listen to the parent that actually saw the whole thing. Gets all involved instead of letting the kids work it out for themselves? Which in most cases they do and become great friends. Sorry my rant for the day.

  • I had to add this. You know if you can't run with the big dogs then stay on porch. You my dear are one of the big dogs. I know I have to stop and think what I'm saying and how I'm saying it, when responding to you. You bring the A game and the rest of us have to keep up. In other words you make us think. We still may not see eye to eye, but that's alright, we all have an opinion that's fits us at this time and place.
