Naming Other Members In Threads....

This is not cool at all. We want to be hands off, but you really cross the line when you publicly draw people out. Glass houses and all that.

Be nice.

Community- what do you think our policy should be here?

Perhaps a general suggestion and then if it is a true offense a personal warning, after that they should be terminated.

I think the person who named others in a thread should be kicked off of PeerTrainer. Permanently Banned. That crosses the line. I don't want to be in a group or team with someone like that.

kick them out.

thank you.

Yes it is unfortunate that a tool that can be used in such a positive way, can also be used in such negative ways. I think naming a team is also inexcusable. Threads should only be used about issues that effect every member or most members in general and not be made a personal attack on anyone or any group.

It's strange, PT admin have never behaved like this before. If it was someone immitating them...well, that would normally bother me a lot (it's happened before), but the concept of anonymously gossiping about another member is so far over the line that I don't mind another member doing whatever it takes to stop it.

6:06 if you do not think a group should be named why did you do it??? I would not want to be in a group with you!!! you are the only nameless one in all this nonesense.. I can see why the other team members ran,.... and if you do not like community threads why did you start it.. YOu caused a lot of hurt feelings that did not need to be hurt....

This is so bizzare...

PT - Is that really you?

I agree that people who name should be removed.

Just to clarify we mean in a negative way correct?
If I put out a post saying Sunpatch where are you you disappeared from my group are you still around, or whatever that I've seen on here there isn't a problem with that correct?

Did you voice you concerns to Peertrainer customer support or just run here to report it?

Lets all try to keep these threads helpful and civil.
Imagine how it would feel to be the one who was named.
