GreatDayGames Moderator: Why don't you do some moderating?!?! We're tired of being robbed of points, called names, and being bullied!!!

Here is Brian's reply to an email I sent:

At this time, we have no plans to moderate the comments or chat in Pool Multiplayer on Great Day Games. For the comments, you can use the red flag system to remove comments from your view, but we do not have the ability to view or moderate in-game chat for this game.

How EXACTLY does the red flag system work? Sure, it removes the undesirable text (written by bullies) so we can't see them, but then we can't see what the bullies are still saying behind our backs. Since you won't help us, we have to defend ourselves. How many red flags does it take for you to take action against someone? Ten, 20, 30? More? Do the red flags have to be from more than 10 IP addresses? More than 20? More than 30?

This is the ONLY LINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST BULLIES, SINCE YOU REFUSE TO DO ANYTHING ELSE. With these BULLIES WHOM YOU STILL ALLOW ON YOUR SITE, we need to know EXACTLY what we need to do to get these bullies removed! (Let's see how long this takes for you to respond...)

TO CONNIELEA AND ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS BEEN BULLIED ON THIS SITE:

GDG IS PATHETIC!!!

IN USER CONDUCT, IT SAYS UNDER "(g) THE USER WILL NOT TRANSMIT ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION THAT IS UNLAWFUL, FRAUDULENT, THREATENING, ABUSIVE, LIBELOUS, DEFAMATORY, INDECENT, OBSCENE, PORNOGRAPHIC OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE."

THOSE WORDS MUST BE THERE JUST FOR DECORATION SINCE GDG DOES NOTHING ABOUT THESE THINGS!!!


Before GDG actually came out and said they won't support us anymore, I used the "Report Inappropriate Behavior" tab, emailed, called (their phone system doesn't work properly), chatted with Neil at Arkadium, and left a myriad of messages in the forum, hoping to be heard, but all GDG cares about is the almighty dollar and will happily accept it regardless of their knowledge of players being bullied, harassed, and verbally abused!!! GDG has gone way downhill...no, they've gone to the bottom of the hill...since I joined. I used to look forward to coming here to relax and have fun with friends; now I don't. I hate coming here and getting bullied and finding nasty things written to me every day. Have you ever had someone on here say they hoped you'd "pass away" and threatened you with bodily harm? If not, then you really don't understand!!! FOR GDG TO SIT BACK AND LET THIS HAPPEN TO PEOPLE IS PATHETIC!!! It is poor business and not right in any way, shape, or form! They should be ashamed of the kind of "business" they run! They're also willing to take money from the Ad Council which says, "Teach your kids to stop bullying and be more than a bystander," yet GDG IS THE BYSTANDER!!! THEY'RE HYPOCRITES! To ignore the problem, both on our part and GDG's, is to allow the bullies to win!!! I invite you to come to Pool Multiplayer and play for a month...not just one or two games a day, but to read the comments and get involved in the comment area. I CAN GUARANTEE THAT YOU'LL BE BULLIED, BUT WHY SHOULD YOU LET THAT STOP YOU? Why should we let the bullies to trample all over us and us not fight back? To bury our heads in the sand will allow the bullies to win! To "red flag" them and make ourselves totally oblivious to their mockery will accomplish nothing...they keep doing it. Should we just let them run us off the site so they can win and take over the site??? Maybe by getting involved you'll understand what it's like for us longtime members to watch this site go down the toilet. Maybe then you'll really feel our pain..and maybe then you'll finally understand why people are so upset by GDG's indifference, lack of common sense, lack of ethics, and lack of...everything that's decent!!!

I am a long time member on this site.
I don't play multi player pool because I'm no good at the game.
I don't agree with bullying in any shape, form or fashion...
however...GDG has stated that they will no longer be moderating this site.
Therefore the only choice is to remove offensive comments from your view.
I don't intend to allow anyone to bully me off of this site,
regardless of what one says or however they may attempt to bully me.
Most children (bullies) tend to get tired of a one way fight sooner or later.
If one ignores them they'll get tired and go away eventually.
The changes here at GDG weren't made for no reason,
their whole business changed and they're going in a different direction now.
I'm just glad they didn't do away with the site altogether...
because I hope to be here a lot longer than I already have been.

Blaming the victim...wow! So, it's my fault that I get bullied and harassed because I play a certain game on GDG's website??? Hmmm...interesting...

GDG DOES NOT ENFORCE ITS OWN RULES AND SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR NOT DOING SO!!!

IN THEIR OWN TERMS OF USE under USER CONDUCT, it says: "(g) THE USER WILL NOT TRANSMIT ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION THAT IS UNLAWFUL, FRAUDULENT, THREATENING, ABUSIVE, LIBELOUS, DEFAMATORY, INDECENT, OBSCENE, PORNOGRAPHIC OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE."

In layman's terms, that rule means that players should not do those things to each other, but WHY DOES GDG ALLOW IT??? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, THESE ARE YOUR OWN RULES, GDG!!!

Why even bother to put the rules there then? What good are they if they're not enforced?? Apparently, it is too difficult (costly?) for Arkadium/GDG to have JUST ONE EMPLOYEE in there to watch what goes on and do something about it. SERIOUSLY, WHY, OH, WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT???

ConnieLea: Ok, I'll only put this in one place for you! Lol! We're on the same team: we both want this to be a good site where we can (virtually) meet nice people, play fun games, and have a good time. We just go about things differently in hopes to effect change. Unfortunately, this site has gone down the toilet (taking away the prizes, not fixing the hourglass, allowing bullying). Good thing it's not a pay site! You should still come to play pool, but practice against the computer first..lol! That's kinda how I got started! Most of us are good people...really we are! We just want to play in peace!!! Take care and have a great day!!! Very Happy

I don't like to be bullied, harassed, and threatened with bodily injury while The Powers That Be at GDG sit around on their collective duffs and do nothing, but, sadly, this is the "new and improved" way of doing things here at GDG! Here are some examples:

THIS WAS AT 9:48AM PST ON 5/1/15.
SKUNKYBUDDY: BEST STFU
SKUNKYBUDDY: I WILL KICK U
SKUNKYBUDDY: OK
SKUNKYBUDDY: I RUN THIS PLACE

SKUNKYBUDDY ON 5/1:
LOONYTOON A CRYBABY HERE....HOPE THE OLD LADY PASS AWAY

May 1, 2015 at 1:41pm
SKUNKYBUDDY: YOUR A OLD LADY HERE THAT NEED TO ...GET LOST

**********
In GDG's own TERMS OF USE under USER CONDUCT, it says: "(g) THE USER WILL NOT TRANSMIT ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION THAT IS UNLAWFUL, FRAUDULENT, THREATENING, ABUSIVE, LIBELOUS, DEFAMATORY, INDECENT, OBSCENE, PORNOGRAPHIC OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE."

GDG's answer is that they don't have the money to enforce their own rules. GDG-Brian said on May 18, 2015:
"This is the answer. It is too difficult and costly to moderate a site that is no longer a focus for Arkadium."

So, they just leave the outdated/expired rules up to look like a pretty decoration on a page and make it look like they're doing something (a.k.a working). This makes it look like they might come to our aid, but they really won't so don't bother asking.

It's all about their lack of money, so you can blame whatever problem you're having with this site on GDG's lack of money. Game freezing? Page dropping? Game not working properly? They won't do anything about it so don't bother asking. Nothing will ever be fixed on here so don't get your hopes up. It's the "new and improved" GDG way!!! Their new motto could be Hallmarkesque..."When you care at least to do the very least." One would think they have enough money since every single page is covered with ads. Lol! Good thing it's not a site where we pay to play. Who would anyway?... "Oh, please take away our chances for prizes, don't fix existing games, and let others bully/harass/threaten us with bodily injury! Woohoo! Where do we sign up??" Lol!

I can't wait to go back and bully/harass/threaten people with bodily injury and cuss people out on the comment board and in the games. This'll be fun!!! Thank you, GDG!!!
