I asked Eric, but he wasn't sure...is there a way to un-register on the forum? I've seen a few posts that said no longer registered or something like that, but I can't seem to locate any button or anything that does the job. I've been getting PM's from someone who asked me that question and I didn't have any answer for him either, but he says he would un-register if given the option. Can you let me know? Thanks,
There is no un-register process that a member can initiate through the forum software. It has to be requested through the Admin, which I have provided for other members in the past. Please refer that matter to me so that I can provide their request.
But considering that the guy never posts and is only on the site because he is a "devotee"...I doubt he'd consult/contact the Admin on the site.
But, thanks again...I'll let him know.
I have a problem with having devotees hiding as registered members on the forum. It is a violation of peoples trust of which I am responsible for eliminating. So unless you want me to think of you as harboring devotees on our forum, which would make you an accessory or possibly a devotee yourself, my suggestion is to come clean and tell me what is really on your mind.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
First off, Noone is "harboring" anyone-I didn't however feel as if it were my "duty" to do anything about this other person's being here. I have suggested to him that it isn't really appropriate for him to be on this forum and he agreed, beyond that I don't feel as though I am responsible for someone else's business. I checked his profile and he doesn't list himself as an amputee, he also doesn't post. What is it that you'd like me to do? I'm not a moderator or an administrator on the forum, am I supposed to banish him? He hasn't said anything "offensive" in nature to me, so I hold no grudge against him. He said he would "un-register", but there appears to be no way for him to do that. An "accessory" or "devotee" myself? Come clean? My cooperation? I'm not sure if I should be offended or not? If this man is on the forum there are probably several others too and I would say that a good percentage of the guests may be also...what do you propose to do Johnny, banish them all? I agree they don't belong here, but that isn't going to change the statistics any. As for myself, since you seem to be on a glorified "witch hunt" of late, perhaps you should "un-register" me? I have no desire to be under scrutiny from you or anyone else, I have enough other hurdles in my life than to deal with such nonsense. I think you have more than you'll ever be able to handle with the "devotee" problem. I don't think that you'll be able to keep them at bay, but hopefully they'll at least remain polite. Which is more than I can say about this PM.
I have obviously struck a nerve here, of which I am not at all happy about. If you are not interested in cooperating with me in regard to helping me preserve the safety of our forum, and are on the defensive with my previous PM, I question that you are who you say that you are, and assume that you have your own agenda on our forum, that is different than anybody elses. Please help me to understand, as I would prefer to clear this matter up with you. I have enough other hurdles in my life too, and would prefer to spend my time helping people, rather than having to be concerned about the safety of the amputee forum. I would hope that you would understand the responsibility that I have here, and not take this personally.
How you would expect that I not take your PM personally or be offended by it in any way has me completely baffled, Johnny. Perhaps you're right, if you are any measure of the "agenda" of this forum than I don't belong here. I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "cooperating", what exactly was it that you were proposing? I don't see what it is that you felt needed "clearing up" either? How do you expect that I have some means of securing the "safety" of the forum, anyways? Anyone can come onto this site, Johnny, it's an "open" forum. The guests don't have to undergo this kind of scrutiny, do they? I'm sorry that you are taking what you obviously feel like as "some sort of invasion" so personally, but that doesn't give you the right to attack me or my character. I was very upfront with you about my question, I asked it...you replied...I explained my reason for asking...you attacked my character. Gee...I wonder if you struck a nerve? As for the forum, there are some very nice people here-there's my agenda. Now that you know...please unregister me immediately.
