Post Accusations of a second account and defamation

Hi James,

Is there a rule about continuously being accused of having a second account/being a banned user/a troll?
You have stated before in the 'Banned Users' thread that this is my first account, but members in the Serena Slam sub-forum still continue to accuse me of being a banned member. Should I report those posts under harassment?

My second question, is there a rule about defamation and lies? I will quote a post that was directed to me:

I have reported that particular post, I have never said anything like that. My character is being tarnished by these lies.

Thank you James

She has one, but has 12 years left in her, with 9/10 years of heavy slam winning potential. She could end up with 22 grand slams easily.

Re: Accusations of a second account and defamation

Some people see double accounts everywhere. As long as we don't find evidence of this, you are good. But for the record: I never confirm any account, for the simple fact we can't guarantee it 100%. The wording I chose at the time reflects that.

Macomeh is usually good with receipts. Making false claims about people is obviously not allowed.

Ever since I joined, I have been accused of being a banned member called Horcrux .
It's just very annoying being treated like a troll in your favorite player's sub-forum.
Thank you for your help James.

Re: Accusations of a second account and defamation

Some of them feel threatened by new users otherwise I don't see any explanation. Double accounts are each user who doesn't agree with them. As if some older users never did anything wrong. You see, it's easier when they judge others but don't see their own mistakes.

Anyway, it's their choice what they think as long as no one asked for their opinion.

This is not where to report them. Just put the culprits on ignore and subject closed.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Good advice. Closing this thread now. Any further questions can be done over PM and naturally via reporting it.
