because people speak English
Do you all know about the NEW feature in the MyEC chat room? It's the "Ignore"button.
After you pop out, you can see the names of the people you are chatting with in the main room and in private rooms. Click on a name to see the drop down menu. Choose Ignore.
Why would you need to "Ignore" chatters in the MyEC chat room?
*Please report serious issues using the Report a Member form. A serious issue is typically related to the safe operation of this club and the security of its members. If the "ignore" button does not resolve your issue with this member, then you can use the form. If you think the member should be banned, take a screenshot of the abuse and send it to my inbox. Admin can't ban bad chatters unless you include the link to the member's profile page. (The name is not enough. These people play games by changing their names or avatars.) From the drop down menu choose "View Profile". Copy and paste the URL of the chatter's profile page and provide it in the report.
Discussion question: As many of you know, we have a few bad apples on MyEC. These chatters are banned weekly (sometimes daily). They aren't here to learn or teach English. They have nothing better to do. Perhaps they have no job, school, or loved ones. It makes me sad. These "members" change their names, email addresses, and avatars over and over. What suggestions do you have for this problem? Should we ban IP addresses? If yes, what about people who use public computers? Should we simply "ignore" them? What would happen if we all "ignored" these chatters and focused on all of the good things on MyEC instead? Would they become disinterested and leave?
Please share your suggestions and ideas!
