Please, if anyone sees something that you believe is a violation of our community guidelines, I ask that you contact me. It doesn't have to be an ambassador. This community belongs to everyone, not just the Ambassadors. 

That also means that it belongs to people that don't get along well with others. Unless they are violating the community guidelines, we don't generally ask someone to leave for being boorish or rude. But if a pattern exists of someone continually being obnoxious I have no problem speaking with them about it. 

From my vantage point, this is exactly what someone acting as you described hopes to achieve. I'm sure they are chuckling to themselves right now and marking this up on their 'irritate at least one person every single day I walk the earth' list. My experience has been if you are around any community (be it online or in real life) for an extended amount of time you are absolutely going to find people you don't like, for whatever reason. It's best to just ignore and move on. But please send me anything you believe is a violation of the community guidelines. 

Maybe we should think about a block button....although I hate spending resources. But maybe everyone else thinks it's a good idea.

I thought I was the only one who found them irritating - One of them called me out by name on a question and said she never agreed with anything I said -but in this instance she did agree with me - I was stunned that I had been so visible or disagreeable.... Moi?

Honestly there have been times I have questioned asking a question because of this. Then I think of the many great people and insight I would be losing if I left. Instead of ignoring I sometimes just keep responding with overwhelming kindness it is the Kryptonite of negativity. I would miss you don't leave:)

Roger I know which two you refer to here, one of which bothers me daily as he bullies the new folks and irritates everyone else.

I challenge him on his crap once in a while but generally feel it is not worth my time.

The other that bothers you so, does not raise any irritation in me, perhaps I have not read the same comments as you have.

In defense of our fearless leader, though you, I and many others would have been swift to smite the offender and banish them, Bob Stewart shows remarkable restraint and an immense sense of fairness.

These qualities of restraint and fairness are likely why he is the guy in charge of the banish button and we are not. 

If not for these qualities, a lesser leader may have found offense in you, I and many others over the years.

Likely best to still have a few of us still around here, flaws and all.

Bullies want one thing, and that's a reaction.  

They're getting it here.

I was bullied for years by someone and all I did was fight back.  If they wanted a fight they'll get a fight!  We had epic wars that were exhausting and never solved anything.  They just caused more stress.  

One day this person sent me the nastiest, cruelest, meanest email I've ever read.  I wanted to rip this person's head off.  Literally.  

I started pounding away at the keyboard with my profanity filled response and then it hit me.  

Silence.  

This person wanted to own me, and they were doing just that up until the point that I ignored them.  

I was the bigger person, and I think you are too.  

Don't play into these people's games.  If they comment on one of your questions and you don't like it, move on.   Ignore them.  

They'll get bored and eventually stop poking the bear.  

My two cents is that they're winning right now.

Hello Roger D. Mucci ...

I feel your pain my friend and for the last couple weeks I was asking approx. 4-5 questions per week, and there were some comments t really didn't like. And if I was to roll through your questions & mine I could figure out real fast who these members are, if they haven't deleted their comments & replies 

So let me ask you a question Roger, are their comments still up?

And as an Ambassador, I moderate 20 groups, post 10-15 blogs per week and leave comments everywhere. Sometimes I think I know more about what's going on around here then some staff and or moderators from ActiveRain.

I have seen so much slack from the ActiveRain network when it comes to featuring blogs, answering emails and or AR members throwing out posts and comments asking ... "WHERE IS THE ACTIVERAIN STAFF?" 

Even though I am not part of AR staff Roger, you have my email address and as an Ambassador I am here to you, along with the other Ambassador's and nip this in the butt.

Anytime your having issues with certain individuals or certain posts, comments or replies to comments and your not getting a fast enough response from AR staff, shoot me a email, I know how to take care of them quickly 

And Roger, if this has not been resolved then contact Vegas Bob right away!

Hey Roger D. Mucci .  I have a feeling I know who you are referring to and I agree, they must be miserable people.  Unfortunately, being an Ambasssador on this platform doesn't come with any special policing powers.  Dare to dream.  My opinion matters no more than anyone else's.     

Over the years I've seen far worse offenders who sunk to levels of slander who never got more than a hand slap.  At the time, being a victim of such slander, I was furious.  In the end, the offending party alienated enough people that they removed themselves from this platform...no longer benefiting from what is offered here.  Since then, my skin has thickened up to this as I have come to realize that people that truly get hurt are the ones slinging the venom.   We all see them for what they really are.  In the meantime, their inablity to navigate Q&A in a remotely kind or neutral manner is like watching a bar room brawl.  You can't help but watch.  They think they are Rocky Balboa, but we see something totally different....the stumbling fool.

Don't let it chase you away.

Consider the situation presented and how valuable it is. Without compare and contrast, one doesn't know. With it, one knows for themselves and acts accordingly. Rudeness is a good contrast for kindness. Being abrupt calls attention to patience. A poorly thought out answer makes the good one shine. Judgment narrows the scope while objectivity broadens the mind. Ponder these things as learning tools and rise above the push & pulls....
