Why does it take so long for trolls and bullies to be suspended from SW?

I have just been informed today that one of those creatures who attacked me four months ago had only just been suspended for attacking me. Why wasn't he suspended four months ago? Is there any way we can get this speeded up so that troublemakers are dealt with immediately?

Some are reported but have VIP shield.

[@554696,MechE96] I suspected that was what you meant. I think the VIP system should be abolished. It reminds me of certain sinister celebrities.

[@532584,Bootsiebaby] When you submit so many valid reports against a person and they only get warned? VIP shield.

[@554696,MechE96] Exactly. The whole system reminds me of how Jimmy Savile had certain protection while he was still alive so he got away with his sinister activities, but it all suddenly came to light within less than a year of his passing. There should be no shield for such people.
i think a lot of online sites are like that. this site doesnt seem to have many people on it, maybe they are afraid of banning people 🤷

[@586376,badapple] I don't know. People just seem to come and go.
do closed down accounts still factor into that number?

[@586376,badapple] It depends on whether they are closed temporarily or permanently.

It seems to be hit miss ,i reported someone a few days ago ,within hours they were gone.Only to come back as someone else though i'm sure.

[@532584,Bootsiebaby] Probably because they get pushed around in real life .

[@665475,kodiac] That doesn't give them the right to take it out on innocent people, and that isn't the Manchester way anyway. I'd say nothing if they only picked on other trolls and bullies just to give them a taste of their own medicine, because that [i]is[/i] the Manchester way.

[@532584,Bootsiebaby] I agree

if sw or fb got rid of all the bullies and stalkers, there would be less than a hundred people on either site.

[@532584,Bootsiebaby] i was being sarcastic about the numbers.:)

[@628641,kimberly] Oh, I see. Lol :)

Can't ever be. We don't perceive the same way, i might be a troll to many but to some i am just a turnip

[@59911,anotherclone] Do you deliberately post offensive comments to hopefully hurt other people's feelings? If you do, you are a troll. If you don't, you are not. It doesn't get any simpler.

[@532584,Bootsiebaby] I like being sarcastic but some people have small peenasis and big egos. They're too enthusiastic to differentiate what right and wrong is, in short they lack sense of humor which is gravely unappreciated
Bootsiebaby · 41-45, F
[@59911,anotherclone] I don't mind sarcasm, I can be a bit like that myself at times. However, I do not see sarcasm as bullying or trolling, so I have no reason to call you a troll. I have noticed that some people seem to lack humour on here, I don't know why they have a problem with that.

The one i reported was a pedo ,as i said in hours he was gone so i have to give kudos to the admin for that.
kodiac · 18-21, M
They can go to extremes ,i got swatted by someone here ! It can get very ugly.
Only if it's flagged many times.
