DIS tattletales
 
Isn't it odd how some adults seem so ready to be tattletales on here? I don't mean about spammers, or posters being mean to other posters. I'm talking about things where there is some slim potential for a thread to cross over the prohibited topic line, but where no sign of that has even appeared at all. Usually it's about something that could be considered religious or political, but that is really a benign original post that hasn't even showed signs of being an argument/debate.

It just reminds me of that kid in school who would say, "You said the word 'fart'. You better stop, or I'm gonna tell the teacher."

It's obnoxious.

I'm surprised my Mary and Joseph snow globe thread wasn't deemed a religious discussion by someone.

I know what you mean. It always amazes me when I read 'your post was reported'. Really? Grow up already.

Do people really tell on each other on here.:sad2: If I found a thread I didn't like I just wouldn't read it, I wouldn't even know how to go about telling on someone. By the way I loved your snow globes - they made me laugh!

I feel like such a DUH because when I saw those globes, at first I thought there were spaceman Mary and Joseph!!:lmao:

Hahahaha!!!! Good one!!

I need to stalk you guys & find the threads you've been on. Sounds like I'm missing some good ones! ;)

I always figure that if I don't like the subject matter of the thread, or if I don't like the turn that the thread has taken, I am free to skip over it. I can't imagine reporting something that wasn't a specific personal attack, and even then, I'd probably just ignore.

But is it possible that the 'it has been reported' is just a standard line that the moderators use? It could be that the moderators decided to pull the thread on their own, without any tattling happening. I'm not saying this is what happened, but it might be...I really haven't been able to figure out exactly how the moderating thing works around here, sometimes things get points that don't seem like they should, but I won't discuss that, because I know it's a forbidden topic. :rolleyes1

Glennie5 11-14-2012 08:51 PM

I probably should go back and read the fine print... I didn't know you could get points too, does that happen when someone tells on you?

I never knew u were a teacher.

I'm always surprised too, since I've been on the DIS for a million years and can't think of any times I've felt the need to report something. I think I might have reported someone once, but can't remember what it would have been so maybe not.

I was reported once, and I admit, everytime I read a post by the person that reported me - no matter what it is - I'm tempted to push that button!

Pea-n-Me 11-14-2012 09:31 PM

Funny you should bring that up tonight. :rolleyes1

Tinker'n'Fun 11-14-2012 09:35 PM

Do you really get a notification if someone reported your post. What if the person who reported it was wrong? Do you still get a "Hello you have been reported" message!:rolleyes:
