Important Message: Please Read

As some of you who like chatting in the chat box on the sidebar may know, we've had a slight problem with someone impersonating me. At first it was just little things like 'hi' and 'anyone there?', but today the situation escalated when this person started making rude comments directed towards me and began using inappropriate language, etc. As I believe I have stated before, I do not tolerate mean-spirited or rude comment/chats on Treble Clef. That is my policy, and because one reader violated that, I have taken down that chat box. I'm sorry, because there are so many of you who used it respectfully.

I had to do the same thing because I got a chat on there that was by an anonymous commenter who said an inappropriate word. I wish you could moderate those chats, or at least delete the offensive ones, because, like with your chat box, there were so many girls who enjoyed using it, and used it respectfully. *sigh* Oh well. :/

Love,
Eldarwen

Thats too bad, I enjoyed chatting with everyone... Its sad how one person can do that, but it makes sense. I saw just a snippet of the conversation and then refreshed the page while scrolling through posts, and the chat box was gone, and I figured you took it down for that reason. I hope it comes back sometime, but after this I'm not so sure it will. It is really horrible to be impersonated, and once when someone did that to me, I almost got banned from the chat box because our ip codes were only a few numbers different. We got it sorted out in the end, and I wasn't banned, but it was really mean, and it hurt my feelings that one, the people wouldn't believe me, and two someone got me into the mess in the first place! As I said when the chat box was still up, Laurea had the same problem... You might want to see if they are doing this to other bloggers... Sorry that they were being so mean to you Cornet, but at least you have marching band to look forward too...

Oh, and this is totally off-subject, but you have to watch this youtube video! Its really cool, and I was smiling and laughing though the whole thing! I found it through Ellyn's blog Life's Better at a Gallop, and she said it was a piece of cheer-- totally right! Its really awesome, and I think that you'll like it!

That stinks. I'm sorry. If you figure out who it is, let me know and I'll ... you fill in the blank! :)

Good for you, Cornet! I like your standards :) I'm sorry about the chat box, because even though I didn't use it, I liked reading what other people wrote :)

Wow. That's pretty awful. I'm so sorry! It's never happened to me before, but I can still sympathize.

I've also heard of anonymous people who leave nasty comments...again, never happened to me.

My mom said they only want a reaction and so you should just shut them out and then continue. That's all they want is a reaction. What's your email, Cornet? I was going to say something but that person can see it on comments so....Oh wait. You have comment control. Nvm! I got the SAME thing! I don't have a shout box but I got a comment saying: "You suckkkk!" ...It's on my blog. First post.

That's rotten. It is rather easy for people to spam the Cbox, but it's sad because most people don't.

NatureFreak said...

There is a way to ban people/delete messages on cbox.ws. Log onto your cbox account and go to messages, then check all the messages he/she said, and click Ban, and then click Delete. Hope that helps you!

Peace,
