This is a HARASSMENT complaint levied against user CHERRYBLOSSOM for her behavior yesterday, DEC. 16 between 5:54 pm and 6:17pm. Background: At 4:10 PM yesterday, I created a thread in the SUGGESTION forum entitled: "MALICIOUS USE OF THE THANK YOU FEATURE." (http://destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61969) The post was a legitimate suggestion. It did not mention any names or situations specifically. it was about functionality and how maliciously intended "thank yous" subverted the intended effect of the LATEST REPUTATION RECEIVED window. I had not corresponded with CHERRYBLOSSOM since the end of our last run-in on DEC. 6 (10 days before), so this post was not, as it has been suggested, some sort of under- handed attack on her. I am direct and specific in my posts.. and, as I said, it had been 10 days since our last spat. moving on... This is what my Reputation Received window normally looks like: I consider to be a collection of appreciation. It is the place where I can feel the appreciation of others on Destee. I like that, and I articulated that in my suggestion. I likened malicious thank you's to psychological warfare. shortly before, I made this suggestion, I sent a GENERAL QUESTION from my profile page to the management asking if it was possible to remove these 5 thank yous that sat in the middle of my REPUTATION RECEIVED box. The were all from CHERRYBLOSSOM and they were all Maliciously intended. Meaning, they were made during and after a disagreement.. and they were intended to communicate discontent, which is the opposite of what the THANK YOU feature was created for. My request was private and was really a question about the technical possibility of removing the thank yous.. it wasn't a complaint about CHERRYBLOSSOM.. I had dealt with her myself over 10 days ago and had, since then added and removed her from my IGNORE LIST. getting back to the timeline.. at 4:33, just over 20 minutes later, CHERRYBLOSSOM responded to my suggestion with this: Which, in light of the fact that she knows that she is the main perpetrator of what I call "Malicious Thank Yous", is an attempt to minimize my suggestion and simultaneously take a swipe at me by THANKing my suggestion in the same Malicious way she has in every conflict that we have had. She writes her posts in a way that would appear, from the outside to be harmless, but when taken the full context of action, they are aggressive, offensive and just plain mean-spirited. I know she knows it because, I mentioned it to her a couple of times before. here's an example from another conflict: getting back to the timeline.. at 4:58 pm, I responded to CHERRYBLOSSOMs response with this: which rebuked her attempt to talk-down my request and made her aware that she had been on my ignore list. I had recently felt that the tension between her and I could be pushed aside, so I took her off IGNORE and I even thanked one of her posts on my thread entitled US AND OUR BOYS. (http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=618502&postcount=4) This suggestion of mine, was an attempt to remove these remnants of past disputes from my USER CONTROL PANEL which I use as my startup page. I wanted to push this all back and move forward. at 5:54 pm, Over an hour later, CHERRYBLOSSOM responded with this: http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=618752&postcount=5 This appears to be the end of our spat, but is really just the beginning. at 5:57pm, 3 minutes later CHERRYBLOSSOM begins a maliciously intended attack on every one of my recent posts. for the next 20 minutes she pulls up and THANKS each one of my posts with the intent of filling my previously mentioned REPUTATION RECEIVED window with thank yous that, given the context of their delivery are meant in a mean spirit and are more along the lines of the F-word or "go to hell". Here's a screen shot of my window: at 6:28 , I took this screen shot of my REPUTATION RECEIVED window and posted it for everyone to see. After CHERRYBLOSSOM saw that I could produce a visual record of what she had done, she began her campaign of trying to confuse the issue with a lot of words that are all over the place. She does this whenever she knows she wrong, she attempts to talk you down with long posts full of conflicting ideas and images. Asking, as she does here, in a suddenly docile and innocent voice attempting to confuse the issue and influence those that will be called to pass judgement on her behavior. , I'd like to call attention to the fact that my complaint is about the actions of CHERRYBLOSSOM on DEC. 16TH between 5:54 and 6:17. I'd also ask that you take note that this all came from a constructive SUGGESTION, not a complaint against CHERRYBLOSSOM as it has been suggested. ok.. almost done.. I had been engaged in a dialoge with Clyde Cooger over in the COMPLAINTS forum regarding 360 thread. He had earlier explained to me how the discipline system worked here on destee. at 7:08 I asked for his advice on how to handle this situation with CHERRYBLOSSOM. He advised me to basically just let it go because the posts I had made already would serve as my complaint.. cool.. At 7:57, I posted my last response to CHERRYBLOSSOM. http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=618777&postcount=16 As you consider my complaint, I'd like to ask you all (managers/moderators/admins) also to take a long hard look at the way CHERRYBLOSSOM operates on these boards. It is my opinion that her behavior is out of control and has a stifling effect on the entire environment here at Destee.com. Her tactics are deceitful and manipulative and stand in direct conflict to what this board strives to be. I'm prepared to humbly accept whatever conclusion you come to and whatever judgment you may hand down. I stand behind every word that I have written here on Destee.com and I submit that my only purpose here has been to share and to learn and to commune with the beautiful people here. If you have any questions about what I have posted here, please feel free to ask. Thank You.
