This is my first post here.
I have been a member of IF since 2005 and I have been the most active in the DMG forum.
Yesterday, a member (partialmods) opened a post on how Karan Singh Grover (the lead of DMG) was responsible for girls going 'horny' for him (the posts pasted by him/her were taken by ATs and CCs of which he/she is clearly not a member of, therefore he/she stalked those threads to get material for their post).
My reply to him/her was one of sarcasm but with absolutely NO foul words used and in reply I was called "horny' and a 'two-faced bitch'. I did not engage in any battle with the TM and instead just reported him/her.
The TM however continued to abuse people left, right and center using derogatory and foul language, commenting on their personal life and advising them to 'get laid by KSG' etc.
Next up, a topic was opened by the same member directed at another member in reply to some PRIVATE MESSAGE with the same pathetic language used.
Both these topics were binned but the member has continued to post derogatory remarks about fellow members and actors like KSG and Jennifer.
The member has also called fellow members gay and lesbian.
So my questions are -
1. When the topics were binned, why wasnt the member banned too? He/She seems to broken ample rules as far as I can see - calling members 'horny', 'bitches', 's**ts' and 'wh**es' should be enough to ban him/her, shouldnt it? or at least calling actors those same names should be enough? And stalking threads which is again against IF rules as far as I know?
Members continuously call actors and fellow members disgusting things and they continue to scamper around IF. Fine, dont say anything when a member is attacked but shouldnt action be taken when members abuse actors because of whom we are here on IF. This is not a SOCIAL NETWORKING site but a TV show and entertainment forum...
2. The second question is that HOW do these members get away with commenting on any type of sexuality? I dont care if the member they address is indeed gay/lesbian but what I do care about is the derogatory way in which they use these terms. Are gays/lesbians not humans? They dont deserve a chance at love and personal expression? Why arent these members banned or are we promoting IF as a site just for the so-called straight people? Are we promoting IF as a site which is basically suffering from Homophobia?
So, the basic question is WHAT is the limit before action, and a proper and strong one at that, is taken against any member? How long is he/she allowed to abuse indiscriminately and stalk other threads before a DUE (as per the IF rules) taken?
I demand answers from the Mods of DMG forum and the admins of IF. And I ask you all to think over my questions and if you are just here to bash, then please continue because that really shows where you come from.
