What's the best way to report an abusive or obscene private message

If this is the wrong place to post this, please move.

The poster known as "Racial Realist" sent me the offensive message...and all I did was ask him to explain his name.  Who is the person I should refer this to?

Apparently he was just NOW banned.  So never mind.
 
(on edit)

Well,  no...at the moment, he ISN'T banned.  as "Racial Realist" someone was banned, but as "racial_realist" someone is posting now, perhaps the original poster using a keystroke to get around the original banning.

Hey Ken Burch.

Email the moderators when this happens.

I see that you started this thread around 5am EST, which is 2am PST, on a weekend. The mods may not be up and about right away.

The operative word when it comes to the exchanging of obscene PMs is consent.

Sorry for starting the thread so late.  I was up and was surprised as hell that he sent me that.

Yes, Maysie is right (she would be!): the best thing to do would be to email me or Rebecca. catchfire[at]rabble.ca, rebeccawest[at]rabble.ca

And PMs also fall under babble policy, fyi.

oh oh, you mean those PMs that Maysie and I have exchanged are governed by the babble policy.... I am in sooooo much trouble.

Wait, define "obscene".

I deny everything.

Kiss

Even if it was, like, totally AMAZING?

I dunno - there's a lot you can do with a gag ball and a leather mask.  Safely and consentually, of course.

The ones I send you are obscene.

The ones you send me are abusive.

Surprised

I think our only defence is that, to this point at least, most juries would consider them consensual.

[ETA: Rebacca... there is no "T" in consensually, I know it looks like there should be, but nope, un-uh, no "T" - the root is consensus, not consent]

The title just calls for a joke, but I am coming up empty.

I think "ball gag" is the preferred nomenclature, as opposed to "gag ball".   A gag ball, for example, might be the old cantalope for softball substitution.

 

MegB

Tommy, your correction is duly noted.  If more correction is required, let me know.  I'm all for it.

Tommy_Paine

Madame, I do believe you are flirting with me.

 

Tommy_Paine

I've never heard it called that before.

For God's sake...HIDE the cantaloupe!

Cantelope?  You can't elope without a bit of vinyl and some other petrolium-based product.

Well, obviously the obscenity hasn't been clear enough. Wink

Can we rename this the "Let's All Flirt With Maysie Thread"?

MegB

Hell yes, Maysie is so completely flirtable. How can you not flirt with a smart sexy chick?  Ya stoopid article.

racial_realist

Bullshit. You started with interogating me out of nowhere . If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Maysie Maysie's picture

Whoa buzzkill.

Just when I get the thread that I've always wanted.

Bring it, cuties. Laughing

Your lack of social skills isn't doing you any favours.

Maysie Maysie's picture

Jeez bagkitty, you've ruined the surprise. Now this news will trump the election results.

Tommy_Paine

Trump the election results?  You mean Obama's going to win hands down?

Damn you Tommy, you thunder-stealer.

A flirt with Maysie thread?    Damn, and I was wasting my time on elections.  And as usual I just can't hang around long enough to even dream....sigh.

I thought the whole site was about doing just that.Wink

It's never too late, Erik. I'll be here long after all the results are in.

Send me a PM. Take a chance. Extra points for creative obscenity. Wink

Now that takes some sting outa my day.  My creative obscenity is a bit rusty actually, but with you my dear I doubt I'll need much creative license...   Innocent

To get a Creative License, you have to stand in line at the DMV(Division of Metaphoric Verbiage).

Erik Redburn

Not bad Ken, I just hope the lineup's no longer than my usual verbiage.
