Abusive Members At WA - Really?
I Was So Happy Site Comments Seems To Be Back On Track
I happily started requesting comments this morning and received many great ones.
Then I went into my WP dashboard and noticed the red button showing I had another comment. Curious because I thought I'd answered them all, imagine my surprise when I saw a very abusive message left on my site because I had disapproved a comment from a WA member.
The commenter was pretty unhappy bacause I had ruined his 'perfect acceptance' score by disapproving his comment. He then added that I should check the guidelines for giving comments, called me a "F.....g Retard" and said that I didn't know how to answer questions on my own topic.
But here's the thing.......
I did not tick the circle requesting questions about the topic. I KNOW that the training tells us to ask questions in our comments to encourage engagement etc. HOWEVER, there are options to tick when you request a comment and one of them is to request questions about the topic. If you haven't ticked that circle, it means you don't want questions.
The point is, you have an option whether you want questions in the comment or not and commenters need to take the time to check what type of comments are being requested.
And to the abusive commenter hiding behind a made up email address to leave an abusive comment on a fellow WA'ers site........ I ain't no shrinking violet, but seriously your language and behaviour on many fronts is out of line dude (whoever you are)!
