Warning About Multiple Reading Requests

Post by roseonfire »

It has come attention that members have been using this site for free readings, while not contributing to the forums. They have been asking anyone offering free readings, or even mentioning psychic abilities, and harassing some of the readers who do not quickly respond, even while having already received readings from others. This behavior is advised against, and will result in your account being placed on a list where Starwitch, other moderators, and I can then decide whether to take further action.

Unsolicited Free Reading Requests

Post by Kassandra »

.



This thread was retained (rather than trashed, which is what we probably would have done with it, normally) as a message to members about this. :wink: As you will read in this thread a former member incessantly emailed and PM'd random members of this board with questions about, and/or requests for, love spells, psychic readings, etc. I was on a short leave from the board at that time, so I didn't even know this was happening. The original post on the thread starts with the words, "i need to no if my x will come back to me soon."

Admin finally had to close this person's account to end the harassment, and all her posts were removed (you're not missing anything; she never made real contributions to any discussions here, other than splatter the site with non-punctuated "textspeaks" begging for readings). At the end of this thread, I posted a link to a post about "psychic reading junkies," an unpleasant phenomena I encountered in my own professional reading work. Basically, the way a "drug junkie" keeps demanding money or drugs from any and every one they know, a "psychic reading junkie" will keep demanding readings from any and every one they think might do one for them. They are annoying little vampiric energy drains, with whom one must set and enforce very clear boundaries.

The point is, if you get harassed like the folks on this thread did, please let one of the mods know. Thanks.

OK, I'm going to help out a little, so this post too won't (understandably) get cricket chirped by the wonderful readers here.

If you really want a response to your request,

1. Read and follow rules #4, #5 and #8 in this post: http://everythingunderthemoon.net/forum ... 11406.html
(Bonus: I already did #8 for you, because "title text unrelated to post content" kind of annoys me, lol)

2. Read and follow the suggestions in the section titled,"Try to Be Thorough with Your Questions" in this post: http://everythingunderthemoon.net/forum ... ml#p187818

3. Rewrite your question, following the above guidelines.

4. Good luck. :wink:

In addition to all of Kassandra's excellent points, I will add that the Free Readings forum has rules prohibiting members from joining the forum solely to solicit free readings from our readers (all of whom are volunteers). The other mods and I have also noted you have been harassing members for free tarot readings and love spell advice request, which we have already warned you about. If you keep this up, you are going to get banned.

If you would like to avoid being banned, consider making an introductory post in the Member Profiles & Introduction Forum, and participate in the forum for a while. Then try making a reading request.

I don't know if u already warned him and that u knew about his asking us all obsessively for that spell.
this is a wicca forum so I guess most wouldn't mess with free will like that. ah and about that thread with the cricket..this is not the same case.

I got several of them too. And there was a discussion about it constantly in the chat box. I suggested that they post an introduction and the like and get involved in the forums. Originally the questions were along the lines of how long do love spells take to work.

OK ...real quick
I pulled the 8 of CUPS...
in a nutshell...the answer is:
no.
This card represents an emotional quest, leaving all that was once in place behind them.

Mossy Oak, why don't you come in and introduce yourself at the new members forum?

Aaah, I got some weird messages too the other day. Glad it wasn't just me! I can't see the chat box as I'm on my phone most of the time, rather than my laptop. Fun times!

In the future, if you get unsolicited messages out of the blue like these, please let myself or one of the other moderators know. You can just hit the "Report" button (upside down triangle with the exclamation point), or PM one of us. It's important to report this behavior so that we know if it's affecting more than one member, and then we can deal with it accordingly.

Whaaaat? I don't believe this! Please guys, don't be "polite" to trolls. They don't understand polite; if anything, they interpret that as a form of weakness. When they bug you like this, they sure aren't worried about being polite, so you shouldn't either in dealing with them. Instead, report them, immediately. Don't even respond, or otherwise give energy to and feed their immature, attention-seeking behavior. We want you to enjoy your time on this message board, not be victims of harassment by weirdos like this person...he/she's gone now btw, thanks to Star Witch.

I'm too accustomed to being diplomatic. I guess I need to get cranky sometimes.

Hmm... ;) Determining from the question also it perhaps was one intended to test one as a reader too as it was too open ended but this question in itself was too open ended, and I'd personally respond to that with ask yourself if you really want them back, but it just comes across as a bit cliched question to ask which is somewhat typical of trolls or spammery sort of question to ask, but you mods have nailed that one, I think. Kudos to you. All good ;) just adding two cents worth of thought there :P Am off to read other posts :)
