    It takes a lot for a person to get banned from this site. You have to say something absolutely horrible to get banned here. When a person is banned, it means they are not wanted here any longer, and yet they continue to come back as sock accounts. Just because they no longer post their real face pic, doesn't mean the harassment stops. In fact, their bullying normally is intensified by their banishment. Currently, there are many threads that are comprised of HALF sock accounts. Some of the biggest offenders: Immunity/McQueen/Anduru, Misfit, Dontknowwhy, etc, are all here in present company under different screen names. These people are not the run of the mill people we just get into heated arguments with, but are often people who wish us harm and some even have a criminal history. I've seen some of my favorite members leave recently due to not feeling safe here any longer, and many of the ones that are still here have removed their face pics because do not trust some of the members here.

    It's one thing to get pissed off at each other and call each other names, but quite another to threaten, intimidate and making another member feel unsafe in any way. We don't need people like that here. I have written to the administration about this but I've received no answer. I really think it's time something was done about this. I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas on this.

    Please don't confuse this thread as a place to state how much you hate a particular member. It's not about that. This is about making sure those that are "permabanned", stay banned.

    You've received no answer because you're the boy who cried "wolf!" far too many times already. They know you.

    I would love to see Jmusmc85 banned permanently. He is the most annoying, offensive and has little or nothing of substance to offer.

    I've been thinking about this alot today.
    These past 10 days atleast 6 sock accounts have appeared out of the woodwork. When i argue with a specific person all of a sudden they appear and say shit to my face. Each has about 50 posts yet they know alot about me and other people here. When you ask them who they are you get the silent treatment..

    Just because you have a personal issue...
    You've been asked to block or ignore him but you never do.
    He isn't a sock account. And he doesn't have one either.

    I don't know what really CAN be done. It is the mental state of these individuals that would ultimately need adjusting but We have no control over that. Some of these guys are dealing with actual mental illnesses/conditions that they openly refuse to treat and instead take their aggression out here.

    The number of legit, long-time member that have called it quits is astounding. There used to be so many interesting, fun, informative threads on here that it was hard to choose...now - not so much.

    The site is gaining a bad rep because there are so many angry socks. Personally, I don't see what they get out of it.

    That is why I say the more senior members (such as Myself) need to keep it cool and not rip each other's throats out or else the site will truly be worthless.

    If there is a way to really control repeat sock offenders - I think Admin needs to be pro-active in doing it. I AM SURE THEIR ADVERTISERS DO NOT WANT TO BE SEEN ON A TRASHY, SOCK RIDDEN, LARGELY FAKE SITE THAT WILL ULTIMATELY PROVIDE ZERO DOLLARS FOR THEIR SERVICES/PRODUCTS.

    If these sock accounts continue to surface and they will, then why aren't certain members taking advantage of the ignore/block feature created for these forums? Or better yet, just ignore them! In other words, don't bother to read their threads and focus on the members who make positive contributions to this site.

    I'm doing my best to keep pace with the changing identities (and the negativity of these problem visitors.) If you know (or even suspect) there's a sock account - notify me, and I'll take care of it. I respond all day (almost every day) to emails sent to: help@realjock.com. - Jeff

    People that always label everyone they dislike a sock account are almost always sock accounts themselves. Why haven't you been verified? Why do always troll people? Hmmmm

    a high % of threads end in some sort of argument / name calling / racial attitude. you set your own priorities but before investing here on new features nice to get the drama down.

    Now if we could only permanently ban the bumbling, brainless blowhard from Miami Beach with the alias of Jmusmc85, that would be priceless.
