First and foremost I enjoy being part of this group even though my collection or what I collect in term of watches isn’t anything spectacular you can say I, have a unique taste. Over the years I’ve been apart of good and not so good watch forums. I try to get along with everyone but alas sometimes it doesn’t work. Recently I had problems with a member on another site who thought bashing me was ok well I didn’t think so. Of course I tried to ignore them but I could still see what this person wrote when they “quoted” someone else. I decided to contact the administrator which surprise surprise decided to take the side of the person harassing me. This persons response was who cares after I told him I did have the member on ignore. I had to remind them he’s still gonna talk negative about me behind my back. So much for telling members to be respectful to one another. Yes I will admit I did say somethings to this particular person but in my defense they had it coming. Anyways I had to get this off my chest and to just say I hope I’m a member here for years to come. I, May not be rich or even own high end watches but at least here I’m treated with respect. Anyways please don’t let my venting takeaway from this great forum.🙂🙂🙂

This happens to many in real life. It’s called systemic discrimination for which the people in power want to keep cultures/people/behaviors in a certain way, and function by nipping some buds while tending to others. I hope you come to this forum. I’ve be... 

Thanks

Hopefully you will find plenty of it here. Unfortunately it’s becoming something of a rarity in the world. Join us for WristScan this weekend as you will always be given a warm welcome and friendly advice. Best regards Captain

I’m looking forward to it

I just received an email from that forums administrator and my suspicions were right they would rather stick up for the person who started the problem then stick up for the person who’s being picked on.

Simply put it down to experience …

And move forward to better things.

I’m done with that place

There's always two sides to a story. You know where I'm going with this.

Amen!

I don’t participate much but maybe one day I’ll show my unique collection lol

Please don’t take this the wrong way…

But perhaps you need to grow a thicker skin. Personally, I am opposed to the idea that one person should be able to shut down or control the speech of another person because they feel offended. If the platform has a way to stop direct harassment by allowi... 

I tried ignoring this person

 
 By: kevinc1001 : October 14th, 2021-02:44
But when I did they just kept going. I could only take so much. I did have this person on ignore but if someone respond to said person I would be able to see the quotes being made.

Kevin, I'm sorry you had that experience and I hope you enjoy many years here.

Don't worry too much about conflicts on the internet. There are nice people here and I hope you make friends here and meet them in real life sometime.

I been banned everywhere except here! But those ban were only temporary.

Just take it with a pinch of salt given internet full of trolls. Which I can be guilty sometime as well. There are many forums, just move on. ; )

Hahaha, that would make a neat handle:
