Just discovered that mcn did not listen to my previous e mail about a fake profile set up with my real name and pictures of me that i uploaded last year onto different threads of myself so i will never ever do this again .....surely this is some form of web abuse which is illegal (cyber bullying ) not happy mcn sort it out (liam )

it seems to me
that the "troll" and "sock Puppet" problem on here could be very easily sorted out by having a few moderators drawn from Amongst the regulars? As motorcycle news don't seem to interested in doing it themselves.
They tried that a few year's ago ...it was a disaster with the member moderators getting abuse for trying to do their job.
Sky volunteered to be one along with Spire and haplessdan.
But MCN would not give them proper Mod powers like most sites. ie. they could not ban members or delete threads - only individual posts as long as it wasn't the initial post in a thread.
It was like sending troops into battle armed with a water pistol!
The wankers who were causing trouble with fake usernames just turned on the mods, starting thread after thread with personal abuse in the title which the 'mods' could not delete. They also chose to do it on Friday evenings knowing full well MCN staff mods would not be back till Monday allowing the abuse to remain on the site all weekend.
We complained to MCN about it but they said they could not give non staff full control because the forum here is linked to the main MCN site unlike most normal Forums and a member Mod could have then gone into the MCN site and change articles / race results etc...
The only way to deal with the trolls is to ignore them ...or hunt them down and kill them.
ignoring them then?
after all Never feed a Troll
Personally I favour the 'killing them' option. " />
It's a more 'permanent fix'. .
I ever find out out who did it i will cut their balls off
Trolls ain't got no Balls......
ok i thought you a little harsh...............but if you killed four they would all be gone.....................................but what is heaven without hell and as im sure you agree a perfect world is ..............well for want of a better word .................boring.....................no one ever seems to meet up and go toe to toe................and if they did it would be walking sticks at dawn (yes you ol buggers are the worst)" />.............seems like the fogies internet punch up to me " />
they probably know you in your offline life. its not normal for someone to do thatr.
try writing in your name into google and see if therec's more of it.

i think everyone should google themselves. you never know whats weotten online. its particually rellavant for an emplpyer before you get an intervoew. for example, my spellibg in these foruns is sooooo bad now tjat im pretty sire no employer would ever employ me. the fact that i dobt have time to scrutinise each and every induvodule word, mcn somehow deactivates the spell checler on my phone and i can selectively edit txt on an mcn forum would not matter.
sorry, i mean cant selecrively edit text online on mcn. whenever i try to select a specific qord for editing it selects the whole block of text and places the curser in a random position.
**My point **
Exactly someone used my name on this forum to do this ....
so you can imagine why i'm annoyed at this
as for you simon, i wasn't refering to this thread when i posted on yours
but think back a few months when you insulted my dead mother oh the hilarity of it this is why i posted karma is gonna get you back
as for mcn yes they better pull that profile as employers do google people and ... yes i'm looking for work at the minute
It sounds like you are being.....Interfered with.....
**Ive just **
Googled myself and i'm a tennis player... Well that's a shocker...
No one is innocent but some are more guilty than others,,
Some FUCKWIT.......Posted a pile of crap a couple of days ago...... Reckon they have checked out my Profile to try to gain an insight into my real persona.....but....Being slightly odd and having a little bit of grey stuff.... I reckon they are proper on the wrong track..... Regards, Sarah Nevis.xxxxxxxxxxx
pmsl" /> i got visions of that at the next mcn biker meet...............if a few ex members on here that are posting under another name appear im sure a national paper headline will appear................"and we thought the rockers and mods were bad...........check these ol sods out"" />

im just raising the point that it is a major pain in the butt to post here with a smart phone. if i post on any other forum i can see my spell checker is working. im not a software engineer, but theres something lacking. the curser prpblem i have never even seen before on any websote. please fix. it will make the forums usable.
mostly all employer will google employees. i have a friend who was using a med for a pycological disorder, and under my own email i rated the drug. for ages after that i foubd it hard to get a reply. then one day i googled myself and foubd it, had it removed and like magic began to get interviews again. and eventually got a pretty good job. its worth taking whats onlibe under your name seriously
