Need to vent

I hope I'm posting this in the right place, but I just need to take moment to vent & get something out of my system.

I heard through the grapevine that there were some nasty posts in the Zoo directed at me. Well, I couldn't get in to see them until today and, well, they aren't precisely directed at me, though it would seem so.

Someone calling him/herself "DreamChaser" posted all sorts of negative stuff in there and some people seem to think that's me, which is fairly easy to do since the person, essentially, stole my name (tho I'm just "dream chaser" there too).

Anyway, I posted about it in there to clear things up, but it just seems like no one over there cares anymore and I know I don't know many people in here, but, well, it just really bugs me that someone would somewhat assume my identity and then defame me. So, well, I needed to go somewhere and rant about it.

Sorry if it's OT or what have you. I've nowhere else to go.

-Mel

That sucks...

But is it just some arsehole that chose a similar name to yours or someone doing it on purpose?

I'm so sorry Mel I know exactly how that feels! Remember that idiot who ran that ignorant bald site who made screen names that were one letter off from some of our names and used them to post terrible things so people would think it was us who said it? Thanks to you and sysop, we stopped him. I hope somebody will be there to stop this person for you. Why do people have to suck so much?


Oh, and you are in exacty the right place for this kind of thing. This is the off topic or personal topic part of PLEBA. We share a lot with each other here.

People really do suck sometimes If the people at zootopia don't want to listen to your explaination or care what happened, just ignore them and have fun over here!

Thanks Guys!!

Thanks guys... I feel so much better! Sometimes it's just good to hear consoling words & good advice like, "ignore them," lol

And U2Kitten, I totally remember that! He was such a jerk. It might even be him, for all we know?!?

-Mel

PS: I don't know if it's someone doing it on purpose. I'd like to think not, but I did have kind of a high profile over there...

But we still love you, and maybe they didn't really react ok in the new zoo, but we (well, some of us) know the zootops, and well...maybe they just reacted a bit odd... But it'll be ok.

What a jerk. People can do the most disgusting things. I'm just sorry they had to get on your case. It's happened to me on non-U2 lists. In fact I got chased off of one with a veritable deluge of nasty notes. That was not fun.

Sorry to hear that, Dreamchaser. I dunno wot's going on in the zoo but I've heard that someone's posing as Sysop and also read a thread that someone posted, that was really negative and insulting to everyone, especially aimed at those of us who've come over here. It seems all the decent folk are here now. We can do without turkeys who are only out to incite anger and insult ppl.

Anyway, we all still love ya, so to whoever's upset you!!
