Re: Before Pressing Send ...

New one - a PM from a reelancer showed up this morning, asking why I had not given him any more work, telling me my parents never married, that I am deficient in intelligence, and offering to have sex with my mother and my wife. Those weren't his exact words, and I sent a screenshot to a mod.

 

May I suggest a deep breath and a sip of your favorite beverage before pressing "Send" on a message.The forum is a great place to vent, and the moderators are rather liberal in allowing one to express frustration.

 

For the record, I have never given this fellow any work, thus "more" work isn't possible. My biological parents did eventually marry, but not before giving me up for adoption. And, my mother was cremated nine years ago; good luck with that.

Hi All,

 

Thank you for reporting this. Please note that we were made aware of these private messages earlier today and have already taken action.

Oh I got a similar private message but I deleted it because I could not find a way to report it directly, I guess screenshot is the way to go! I guess he was drunk, though alcohol is not allowed in his neck of the woods....

Yes, I received the same message.

 

If I was being a fully responsible Forum member, I guess I would have reported it.


But I just deleted the message.

Which is what I do with all messages from people I don't know.

"Your parents never married" is now going on my insult list, since there's clearly no greater burn you could possibly inflict on a person. It was also nice of him to offer to have sex with your mom and wife, he was angry but he still wanted to make clear he wouldn't do anything without their consent, very considerate.

I don't even know if he was actually angry.

 

I thought he was feigning anger in a misguided attempt at marketing.

 

He certainly could not have been angry at us specifically. Because none of us had actually hired him before.

 

So his accusation about us not hiring him "again" doesn't really make sense.

Maybe he is angry at the world. Maybe he is angry at himself for not getting hired. I don't know.

 

It's nothing I take personally. Just a random person on the Internet.

I think it was a misguided attempt  to broaden his client base by diversifying his services.

The mod I contacted acted quickly and professionally. Kudos.

 

As for diversifying services, there are places on earth where providing sex in exchange for money is allowed. I'm just having trouble understanding how one delivers that over the internet.
