This has been a big thing in the press recently, how to stop cyberbullying. I think the UG should be pro-active about this rather than waiting for an incident to hit the news.

Now, in the last week I think I have been frozen 5 or 6 times. Look through my posts - some (at times) controversial opinions to be sure, but nothing that breaks the TOS. Sometimes, I will be unfrozen only to make one post and instantly find myself frozen again! Now this doesn't bother me, but I worry about the effect it might have on a more vulnerable person. That sort of abuse could push them over the edge.

The UG needs a REPORT ABUSE button, and it needs it yesterday. It needs to have someone (not Chris) looking into the reports in REAL TIME and banning people as appropriate. No one should be subjected to the kind of abuse and vitriol that spews from certain posters on this site.

What do you think UG?

I hate the "report abuse" buttons, they become ADMIN/moderator nightmares.Self policing neighborhoods are the best neighborhoods.

MaliceX - I hate the "report abuse" buttons, they become ADMIN/moderator nightmares.

Self policing neighborhoods are the best neighborhoods.

The UG doesn't do this though. It gives all the power to the people who VOTE DOWN. There is no self policing - a few people with a vendetta can make the forum unusable for someone. This isn't working.

Is this for real? You don't like being voted down is what it sounds like.

Didn't OP get voted down for claiming Bispin had never been "knocked down"? Or am I confusing the screennames?

The only thing worse than people abusing the voting system is people who cry about being voted down. VTFD.

Cole Konrad retired? Was it because the Overeem fight was stopped too early or because Michael Bisping would beat Dan Henderson in a rematch? Phone Post 3.0

Clearly isn't a hot topic across the pond, knew OP was a Brit before I saw his UKTT posting about this. I think this forums pretty relaxed anyway so its not an issue on here plus the mods keep a good eye out. Jimmy getting rustled is pretty harmless. To be fair to OP though its a hot topic in the UK as a few teenagers have recently killed themselves because of messages they've received on Facebook or similar sites. Phone Post 3.0

i would sign that but it wouldn't matter. this is the best place to talk mma and the mods decide who stays and who goes. you may not get away with shit you see other people doing and may get banned but who cares? you can still read what you want even if you can't post or have to have a mud name so its six one way half a dozen the other.

Can you imagine being bullied by the Internet?

 

That's like being bullied by your television or your toaster.

 

These things have a power switch you know.

 

OHHHH, Don't say anything mean to me!  You'll run me off!

 

I mean seriously, WTF?
