Complaint Review: Swap-Bot - Internet
Swap-Bot Swapbot Harassment, Bullying and Stalking Internet
First, let me start by saying that I am an active user in perfect standing on this site, and I have been using it for a few years. I use this site as a hobby, a creative and therapeutic outlet, and find much fun in doing so. I swap at my own risk, and I follow the rules as well as enforce them when I see someone who CLEARLY breaks them.
When you swap on a site at your own risk, you take the risk of getting flaked on, lesser quality items and so forth. And of course, there will always be bad seeds no matter how well you try and weed out these people. But, I am not coming here to complain about the flakers and the late-senders, or the double-profilers and the sub-par swappers. I am coming here to complain about a major problem that has been going on for YEARS on this site, while the owners sit back and allow it to happen.
I get that you do not have to post in the forums to enjoy swapping and to use this site, but you DO need to check the forums reguarly if you want to see who the flakers and questionable swappers are. So in a sense, you do have to check into the forums daily and read through posts to stay on top of things. What I have a major issue with is the PARAMOUNT harassment, bullying, belittling and disgusting rudeness that goes on in the forums, as a DIRECT result of a clique (yes, a clique- so childish) of women who have been on the site for a long time that have "self-appointed" themselves as administration or the swap-bot queens. In all reality, these women have no lives, or dignity, and find joy in telling other people how to use the site. They mask it as "helping" other users but simply just love being on a power-trip and do not like the idea that someone might not swap exactly like they do. It really is the most childish and lame s**t I have seen on any kind of website forum or online swapping space in my life. It is obvious who these women are because, aside from their big mouths, they comment on literally EVERY SINGLE POST and make contentious remarks toward anyone who offers a different opinion than theirs. Then, when one of these self-righteous, lackluster women leaves her comment, her pack of wolves lines up, jowls salivating, teeth showing, and all come to her side to "stick up" for her and push out the original poster or someone who was sticking up for the original poster. And even when there is a brave soul who will try and stick up for these women in the forums, and who posts completely rational comments in an attempt to tell these women to lay off, they attack that user and call them a bully. No, it doesn't work that way, people. You do not tell the person who called out the bullies that they are a bully for bullying the bullies. Mind boggling, right? This is how inflated these women's heads are. Reality check- if the world operated under their standards, there would be no sense of personal privacy and all the whistleblowers of the world would be monsters.
Their behavior is so predictable. They also call themselves the swap-bot "detectives", and will dig up whatever personal information they can on you and share it in inappropriate ways just because you didn't take thier "advice". These women act like they run the site and most definitely think they run the forums. And the sad part is that they have become so pathetically chummy with the site owners that they get away with treating people like garbage. These women are so unhappy in their lives that they feel the need to boss everyone around. Get off your high-horse ladies; your "internet life" and "original member" status can be compared to a fly on ****- it's disesteemed, pointless, unattractive and it sure does stink.
Now, we all get that this site is for adults and if you can't handle someone's opinion then you shouldn't be using it. Well, it's not that I can't handle your pompous opinions, but its more like YOUR OPINION ISN'T THE ONLY ONE ALLOWED AND IF SOMEONE ELSE WANTS TO POST THEIRS, YOU DON'T ALWAYS TRUMP. Also, if someone says "leave me alone, I don't need your help", then leave them the **** alone! There is no need, and NO RIGHT, to keep harassing people. So beware, prospective users, if you want to join this site, you better start kissing some "original member, unemployed, bored and 'I'm in a clique'-" ***. And to the owners, shame on you for allowing these women to run your users out, and essentially, over-enforce your rules in the forums. Great site, biased management.
