If that is so, then it's time to boot him out. I for one won't miss him.

I received a PM from him about a week ago, referring to me as a b**** and saying my family must detest me....really classy stuff. I decided to ignore him....what a sicko.

Probably, but who knows? I have to say that I thought his message was creepy , “off” really. Well adjusted people don’t behave that way.

This is not ok. As Top-Water and I pointed out, he's had a couple different aliases here. I hope all are removed.

Sorry to hear about both of these PMs. To Susie's point--it is curious that the common denominator to the attacks is gender not politics. But whatever the motivation/cause, he needs to go

How do you know that he had different aliases? And why would he be doing that?

Default Report it

Gilly girl, I hope you passed this info on to the Webmaster. I'm sure he would like to be aware of this type of behavior.
Sorry you had to put up with this stuff.

Dave

Yes, I did report it, but decided to post here as well to show everyone who we're dealing with. I did not respond to his message.

I, too, would like to know the other aliases.

Because he used the same video a couple times and has the same MO/syntax/gripes. And why? Because he's a sad person. (Lakeporter65 = nitrovandam = kickinbassnh). Here's the link: https://www.winnipesaukee.com/forums...ad.php?t=25450 Name:  Screenshot_20200411-184314.jpg

Internet trolls like this guy like to "talk tough" due I believe to low self-esteem, likely brought on by feeling deficient / short-changed by life.

Whatever, see ya ...

In addition to being a misogynist, he is also likely a coward and not a very intelligent one at that.

I agree with you 100%. I would guess that he’s enjoying reading all these comments about him..... we should shut down this source of fun. Getting him off the forum would get my vote.

I got three nasty PM's from this lunatic and reported him.
But when I posted that he was a troll and should be banned I got flack on here?

I've actually been doing a lot behind the scenes this week to slow down a few trolls and other members who were turning what could be productive threads into political battlegrounds and bickering. I can't eliminate all politics and bickering but I think things have improved in the last week.

After some digging it appears that lakeporter65 did have at least 4 aliases in the past. All are now closely moderated and visitor messaging has been disabled.

My hope when I opened the COVID-19 area of the forum that, like the rest of this site, it would be mostly limited to how it was affecting Lakes Region businesses, activities, residents and visitors. If you want to make political statements this is really the wrong place for that. We should be able to have discussions and exchange information on this forum without the political animus. There are plenty of other sites for that.

Please help by keeping your comments within the context of the Lakes Region whenever possible. I can see that most of you are trying to do that while a few trolls unfortunately get all the attention.

You're doing a great job, thanks!
I know of 3 aliases, but I NEED to know the 4th!
One question, though: why heavily moderated rather than removed?

I haven't posted for a while, so first HAPPY EASTER to all. This Easter feels a bit like a restrained celebration of Christianity, when it should be a joyous day for all.

I must apologize as I have a tendency to be to the right of Rush Limbaugh. Some of my posts / threads have peppered political cynicism which need to be toned down. This whole forum is about what a higher entity has given to us and that is the Lake. Don you do an outstanding job.

For boomers, we have never experienced anything quite like this, I remind my own brood that is probably a rehearsal for their time on Terra firma. Resilient we are. The minx has a liberal dose of anti-microbial in anticipation of the first dip in May.

To all stay well, be well, go easy.

It's 4 in total, including "lakeporter65". I'll leave it to you forum detectives to figure out the other 3.

I prefer moderation to banning. It's very close since nothing appears without approval. If a moderated member posts something reasonable that contributes to the thread I'll usually approve it.

You are a very kind person. The rest of us would not be as generous with our time to someone who has abused the forum repeatedly. Maybe one reason this is such a good place despite the split views on difficult topics? (I really don't know, it just strikes me as interesting.) Cheers
