This Is Not Funny, I Nearly Fell Off My Chair
Last Update: Apr 4, 2020
Hello everybody, here is my monthly post
Actually I had something completely different planned but then this happened so now I write a post about it.
Pixabay did not have a photo of a red herring. Therefore I show you something that is a Dutch tradition. Eating fresh herring on the street.
At the moment with all the things that are happening in the world, I do not feel like writing for my websites. Instead, I am revising old posts to then ask for some comments.
I got an email on the first of April with the following header
Taetske, you have a new private message from TheWATeam. I was puzzled as I have never before received one with this text. On opening, I nearly fell from my chair. SiteComments Request has been Flagged as Inappropriate and Cancelled.???????????????????????
I went back to SiteComments and asked for a comment on the same post and I saw the title of my post but not the photo. Instead, I saw a red salmon, well Michael said it must have been a red herring.
The post in question is the story of a day trip to beautiful Ronda in the south of Spain. Michael and I made this trip in October 2018. I illustrated the post with private photos.
I can tell you I was a bit worried and as I was feeling 110% innocent I contacted Site Support and asked if they had a bug. They told me that my post had been flagged by various people. I said this is nonsense as this is a completely normal post and that never anything had been flagged in my more than 3 years at WA. They told me they would look into this.
The next day I received the following message:
You should be able to request comments again on your site. We have reset this erroneous flagging.
It does appear that there are a few members abusing the SiteComment flagging platform and we are looking into this
I went back to Site Comments, put up my post and received 4 nice comments.
I have been here for more than 3 years. Some people I have met here have become friends and we keep contact by email, phone or we have even met each other. There are a lot of people on this platform who know me and hopefully like me but at least tolerate me. But there seem to be people who dislike me so much to wrongfully flag an innocent post wanting to hurt me.
When I finished this line of thought I was upset
The moral of this story is you do not have to accept all that is happening to you. When you know something is wrong and/or you are right, speak up. Contact Site Support, they will help you.
Greetings from the south of Spain,
