PF Accounts Can No Longer Be Closed


Pam2
7 May 2021 #1
I thought this might be of interest to PF members, who may at some point decide, as I did, that they wish to close their account.

Earlier in the week, in accordance with Rule # 21, I sent admin a brief PM asking him to close my Chemikiem account. I didn't bother explaining why I was leaving, just that I wanted my account closed.

Checking the next day I found that the account was still open, but my username/password was suddenly no longer compatible and I could no longer sign in to that account. I then asked a moderator on two separate occasions to pass on the message to admin that my account still wasn't closed and could that be done for me. Admin failed to take any action.

If the rules have changed and accounts cannot now be closed, then any normal person would have sent an email to me explaining this. What I suspect though, is that admin didn't like the fact that yet another long-term member was leaving and decided to behave in an infantile manner by blocking my access to the forum.

@ admin, I won't be coming back here, or even bothering to read the responses to this thread, if it stays up. It's your forum and I guess my account will stay open, but how pathetic is it, that you can't simply close my account in accordance with your own rules. No doubt you will come up with some bullsh!t excuse/lie as to why it can't be closed. Still, your childish actions have only served to reinforce that I made the correct decision in leaving this increasingly toxic forum.

I'd like to ask for you to close this account too, but I'm sure that would be a bridge too far!
Miłego dnia!!

Both accounts have been closed. We normally prefer to only change password/email to something bogus and random to deny access. But now, according to your wish, anybody can register your former username and pretend to be you; hopefully you won't mind.

Sad to see you go Pam, but I guessed you had made that decision.

More and more people are leaving this forum, or at least posting less.

And it is all down to a handful of pathetic trolls.

I don't need to name them, we all know who they are and very soon they will have this forum to themselves.

One of them is probably a mod....I'm close to giving up and letting them scream at each other all day since that's what the administrator seems to want.

Me too and here is a list of those that have given up already;

Dougpol,TheOther,Terri,Delph,Kaprys,cms neuf,Dolno and now Pam.

Others like Roz, Atch and Lenka post less too.

And I suspect Paulina may be at her wits end as well.

If your username is in black type and not the usual blue, it means your account has been closed. It seems your account was closed before you started this thread.

The content you created as a member will still stay on the forums, partly because if it were to be purged, any post or posts quoting your content in a thread would have to be deleted as well.

at least its better than niggasin.space where there is no mods or moderation against doxxing people, libel or false statements on people, racism and **** being posted and half the members are already dead due to drug overdoses or suacides during their mania episodes etc. right guys?

Vincent? Are you the only mod?

No I'm not the only moderator.

I suppose it's the natural way of the world. This place is basically a social club and if you ever had a local pub or club that you frequented in your youth, you'll know that the atmosphere of a place changes over the years. As new generations come along and make their own of the place, many long-standing patrons decide that the place is no longer for them and move on.

I'm not sure that all the posters you mention have left permanently. I think people have other stuff going on in their lives that is more important to them than this forum.

I think that more than toxic, the forum has become dull. It's quite boring listening to one poster and his sock puppets, or a few weird trolls wittering on day after day. If it were actually witty and clever, it would be fun. But there's no wit, no humour. So in the absence of any intelligent debate or witty repartee, there is not much to retain existing members or attract new ones who are interested in contributing.

Miłego dnia!!

Gosh, Chemikiem, I'm sorry you're going and sorry that you won't be returning to this thread so I can say a proper goodbye to you. I shall miss you. I wish you all the best.

Naah... people having fun or making jokes or even what you call trolling isnt the problem. The problem is too many Polish immigrant nationalists. Who want a greater Polish reich without immigrants even from other euopean countries inside their own they dont live at. Dont you think such people are a bigger problem for society and poland than some online joksters or trolls?

Bit rich for the last remaining Brit Clique Bully who drove away scores of forum users to be now whining about 'pathetic trolls'. Something about karma?

Too many ppl complaining its not Polish enough, but never post anything interesting about Poland at all.

I dont understand why she needs her account closed? Just log off and dont come back should suffice, just in case you change your mind.

A lot of ppl have quit the forum only to come back later, just saying.... Well, powodzenia in your future endeavors!

Poland is simply not interesting enough :)

Most of the topics have been covered years ago and unless sth new happens, its basically back to pierogi recipes for now.

Exactly. New stuff happens every day and is often controversial. The problem is that most people want to be nice, avoid controversies, and have no agendas of their own.

Human versions of oatmeal.

So they wait until somebody else posts something they can object to in their polite or woke indignation. These are forum parasites - nice and proper zeros like Z.

BTW, the best way to tell if a poster is a parasite is to check how many of his posts are NOT in response to another post.

Oh lord Rich, you just described yourself perfectly. lol

I dont understand why she needs her account closed?

She has always thrived on drama.
I for one will miss her monthly unprovoked attacks on me that were like clockwork.

Spot on Joker.
I once was going to leave this place too because of the toxic B. Bully Club (all ex-pat teachers in Poland) but one Polish members ask me to stay and help destroy that Club.

I agreed and told them when the last one was gone that I would be gone.
Well after today there is only one more to go as the rest of them have been run out of here already.
Their game here was "Diminish, Gang up on, Belittle & Shame" anyone that didn't march to their British liking to control this place.
My very first innocent post here was jumped on by them with (British) Pam as a moderator who was in their back pocket.
She would give anyone that served back their toxic dish to them a suspension. (That was before warnings that we have now)
In fact she suspended my first account because I was like dirk and refused to bow to her control trip.
With that straightened out, lets wait and see how many sock puppets and guest posters will be chiming in now.

For the denser here, a poster who almost always quotes and responds is a forum parasite.

A special category is a scum that always complains about other posters and the pain they cause him. The code words to look for are: belittle, diminish, and shame.

Over time, you find out that, like Gestapo, they keep scrupulous records of what you said in the past.

No, the code words are: I, Me, I, me, I'm, I, me.

As new generations come along and make their own place, many long-standing patrons decide that the place is no longer for them and move on.

Exactly what happened here Atch.
When this place first started it had a much younger crowd around Paulina's age, between 18 - 25.
Many of them were here to improve on their English as it was their second language.
The B.Bullies lorded over them with their brilliance by belittling them for as much as spelling a word wrong.
This rocked the confidence of many of those younger members so they started leaving one by one.
The hardcore ones stayed challenging and calling out these crop failures to the point the crop failures started getting beat at their own game.
Diminish, Gang up on, Intimidate, Shame, Lie, and Belittle.
This caused very toxic meltdowns by some of the members of the B.Club to the point of crossing the line by being beyond filthy and vomit inducing.

They pried and pried trying to get into your personal life to mock you with (Lazarus) yet came unglued when their pictures were posted and personal failures in life divulged.

That was the turning point in this forum.
They finally had to deal with a much older crowd like we have now that they couldn't intimidate like they did the kids.

Schade! Wirklich Schade, Pam!

I second that. But it was much less of a social club at the time I joined the forum.

These are forum parasites - nice and proper zeros like Z.

Hahahaha, this made my day! I must have really got under your skin if you mention me in such a way in every other thread.

but one Polish members ask me to stay and help destroy that Club.

That was me, wasn't it?

a much older crowd like we have now

Notice that we are precisely the same as we used to be, only the world around has grown younger.

I wish the mods on this forum and others gave me the same kind of respect everytime i whined and cried or made some farewell post and they would close my accounts or make people stop trying to defame me for some old case they found etc. i dont get it why is being female such a big asset and they have it so much easier online and off?

Pity Chemikiem has left. She has been the most enthusiastic and efficient guesser in Riddle threads.

This might be Covid depression - all of a sudden reasonable people start doing unusual things. I believe she will return one day - you just can`t wipe out over a decade of your life so easily.

Narcissism - a mental disorder that makes those suffering from it announce their departure from the forum in hope of hearing a chorus of, oh, please, don't abandon us! We can't exist without you!

Novi, when:Chemikiem says it, decent people are concerned.

Do you think we would be too if it was you??? :):):)

remember when I said I am leaving. nobody seemed to care again what is it with females and their special trestment or status? in fact, people claimed i was whining. only when i almost had covid everyone cared which i was very surprised byl i am still sick btw so even if it wasnt covid its something nasty.

And guess who wouldn't give a rat's ass how "we" would react.

This forum like any other forum is no better than a waiting area at the airport near you. It's that the wait is longer and less boring but eventually the time comes to get up and move on.

The sick part of this one is that some are here to make friends and when it's not happening, they go nuts, nasty, or both. The crude fact is that forum friend are a drag, not an asset since it's hard to tell a friend that he is full of crap when he is full of crap. Self-inflicted censorship is not fun.

it was much less of a social club at the time I joined the forum.

This is an issue. Europeans are more and more familiar with Poland nowadays, especially British people. Most of the Yanks here aren't much interested in much beyond their borders and know even less, and Poles of course by and large prefer to discuss matters concerning their country in a language other than a foreign one.

what is it with females

There aren't many of them here and they tend to behave well. Sadly many don't stay; posters spewing out gratuitously misogynistic content, including speculating about female posters' menstrual cycles, weight etc

now whining

Who's whining? An Australian troll with multiple usernames (the 'amiga500' is also the banned 'ktos'), maybe.

Troll (def.) - a poster I disagree with. Super troll (def.) - a poster I can't outdebate.

I disagree

Rich should realise that not everyone here is interested in what he does or doesn't disagree with, nor do they necessarily come here to debate with him, not least due to his habitually argumentative tone and his unpleasant and repellant personality.
