Hi all,

The chat room has, in the last few days, been abused by a minority of people with offensive language, often of a sexual nature.

This is a family web site and all parts of Viva-Alemria should be suitable for anyone using us. What's more, the purpose of the chat room is for people to make friends and find out more about Almeria.

I have now put a notice at the top of the chat room to warn people from using offensive language. People will be banned from using the chat and forums if they do so. I have already banned one person today becuase of this.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi All

If anyone has any complaints about people's behaviour on the chat, please drop me a PM about it. I shall get in touch with the offender and pass the complaint on to Mike Gibbs as Site Admiistrator who can then deal with the matter and warn/ban them.

Anyone who fails to heed my PM warning will be named on this site and subsequently banned automatically. Warning: don't bother changing your login name... it won't work!

As to the forums, and as you all know, I regularly "prowl" to ensure things are kept friendly and nice for everyone. We like to think this is a site that everyone can log into safely, kids included, and no bad language or any sexually explicit subjects will be tolerated.

It's a shame we have to post messages of this nature. Up to now things were going really well, with a lot of respect and helpfulness between the members. Everyone seemed well pleased with it. Don't let anyone spoil it for you or "force you out" - complain. We'll deal with it asap. Promise icon_smile.gif

Cheers,
Ahana - Moderator

šLike the new warning Mike, but perhaps, bolder letters!

Jojo, you may not have been around when s.x.s..t logged in, and thought his/her intentions were crystal clear, but I was in when the language became totally foul, and not just that, totally vitriolic attacks on strangers, who had said nothing to cause it!

Thanks Mike and Ahana!
totally agree Nikvin! Late last night was totally uncalled for!
However the 3 remaining adults dealt with the matter in a sensible and appropriate manner with both dignity and respect for each other!
Hopefully we will return to the great site where people can make friends, share information and have a laugh! icon_biggrin.gif

Really ,the best approach is to ignore any such "chatters" and send them to Coventry ( no offence to anyone that comes from there). Though that is easier said than done I must admit icon_lol.gif . If no one responds, any such person will hopefully get the message, before they get banned!

No doubt, some will keep reappearing under different identities,from different computers. But that sort of person, gets their sick fun from people responding. So they should be ignored and PMs sent to Ahana and Mike Gibbs, in order that they be banned asap

yep i have to agree the chatroom was once fun where a lot of us always met to have a good old natter and banter with each other ....ALWAYS in fun....but then came along shall we say a couple of idiots who decided to annoy people and goad them into retaliating back (me include...short fuse i'm afraid icon_redface.gif ) ......now it must be months and months since us regulars got together like we use to which is a great shame....i for one miss the fun of the old days in chat.

I was in chat room last night chatting with Seagem. It was one of the best friday nights that i have had in ages. lol. icon_lol.gif We had a real good laugh. I would rather chat than post a message on here. In my opinion there is to much back stabbing on these threads.
