    I'm heading out of chat, if my name is in there and saying offensive things, it is NOT me.

    I have a log of the chat as well. Hope this person loses the site, this was a nightmare to say the least.

    :)

    I don't understand why people try to be so annoying. I guess he was enjoying himself acting like a Jr Higher.

    I'm sorry I had to leave...
    I think the person (s) were annoying to say the least.
    Can't understand why we ,this board, has had such attacks of late.
    Probably an angry child whose parent spends too much time on the board and on quilting....
    ONLY KIDDING!!!!
    But it is quite unnerving.

    Very annoying to say the least. It was difficult to enjoy the company of our usual friends this evening with such a person on board, mean spirited and nasty.

    Has this sort of thing happened much? This is the first chat room I have ever been on, and I've only been there a couple of times

    I'm sorry you guys got ambushed in chat. Also ... appologies to those who sent PMs asking for my help. I wasn't here and just read them a few minutes ago.

    I don't have the ability to block users from the board or from chats. Admin can block users from the board ... i don't know if he can lock folks out of the chatroom. It would be difficult in any case because there are only the two of us, so we can't "work" the board 24/7.

    the only two "solutions" i can think of are to either ignore intruders or for everyone to leave the chat. neither of those are helpful suggestions, though, are they? sorry.

    idiots like the one who harrassed you last evening get their thrills from the horrified reactions of the people they're pestering. i have a feeling that if you fight the urge to respond ... just continue talking to each other as though you hadn't even noticed that "person" ... they'd get bored and go away.

    if i find out there's another way to deal with them, i'll let you know.
