    Hello there,

    I’ve reported a couple of PMs and postings by “Newbcaster”, in which he uses “retard”, “retarded”, “dumbass”, and other insults directed at me specifically and at groups as a whole. I made the mistake of replying snarkily, but did apologize, but he can’t seem to stop insulting me in PMs. Never heard back about the reported postings and PMs.

    I could use some help. It feels malicious, bully-like, and threatening.

    I’m just going to post a snippet of what Newbcaster PMd me. And yes, I did say I wanted him to stop and that he was acting like a two-bit bully.

    “Don't start arguments you can't win...You poor pedestrian son of a *****. You and your family aren't worth the toilet paper I wipe my ass with.

    Teacher? Puhleeze. There isn't a subject you teach that I could not perform better than you as a teacher in...with the possible exception of French.

    Leave education, go out in the woods and quietly off yourself with as many GUNS as you can fit in whatever orifice pleases you.

    Anyone who can spend their entire lives underperforming and then be offended when I call a spade a spade.

    **** you. Calling me a bully.

    Hatchet buried...but don't ever attempt to interact with me again.”

    Am I out of line for thinking this is totally crazy? I mean, I should have been nicer to him at first but since apologized. Wow. Lots of anger.

    Yeah, and they deserve it! Thanks for the support. I’ve been in stressful situations, as a firefighter and serving my country and onstage, etc, but I still hate confrontation. Just not in my DNA.

    Your harassment aside, nothing pisses me off more than folks using words like "retarded", "retard" or "tard". It's incredibly insensitive and offensive.
    I wish moderators on forums would blot these phrases out like they would any expletive. They have no place in forum messages.

    What if you put him on your "ignore" list? I know you won't see his posts. What about his PMs? Perhaps they just disappear. Worth a try.

    No kidding. Considered he bragged about his education you’d hope he knew better.

    Thanks for posting this. If someone's writing crap like that to anyone, I want to know so I don't waste my time or words on them.

    Good idea, but I want him booted. This is no place for that attitude.

    Right, but that's not under your control, beyond the reporting, which you did. This stops the effect on you. Then it's between mods and a**hole.
