Facebook - I've been banned!!

Post  Imogen on Wed Jul 28, 2010 6:12 pm

When I go onto the facebook Diabetes UK section - I post quite a lot there - I put a link to this forum under each post.... and someone just banned me!!!! I don't mention the site or try and "drum up business", but I am guessing that that is the reason that I was banned! All I have been doing is giving the people there the opportunity to take a look here and see if they need help with the emotional site of diabetes etc... Sad Someone didn't like that I guess - even though I have been in the Diabetes UK magazine talking about it and have been a member of their organisation for years! I could understand it if I was trying to get people to buy something, or whatever, but I am just chatting and giving the people the opportunity of taking a look here... Oh well.

Shall I stop ranting now !!!!?? lol!

That's madness!

Actually I have never looked at the Diabetes UK forum...probably because I despair at the dire state of the magazine that comes around and couldn't bare to see any more of their answers to questions about feet (and missing out going to see a Podiatrist) or their recipes!

Maybe I should look and attach a link to here and see how I do??

I'd complain to their forum manager I think and ask why you have been banned...especially since they published this site (I saw it in there and joined!!!)

Big Brother is obviously alive and well and well and living in Diabetes UK!!

Join the DRN and usually there is a rep or 3 from Diabetes UK at the London meeting in December and maybe you could ask them in person Wink

Hmmm... I guess I have a few unfair things happening in my life at the moment (all to do with one person who is very selfish and has an over active self-preservation button), so this was a bit annoying. I mean, we're just here to chat, and make friends and try to help - we're not being mean - most of us are nice and some of us LOVE golf.... What bad stuff could happen here when the action heros of Imogen, Clare and Nick are on the case with our capes and super powers?!

Right, I am officially bonkers. Laughing Woo hoo!

OH how rude of them! Well I'd much rather come here than diabetes UK, there is so much crazy advice going about on there. (Mostly revolves around people needing to go to A&E cos their sugar is on 10.1 or something.)

And yes, keep ranting! Very Happy

The problem with facebook is they have made (almost) everyone report happy. Facebook itself is programmed to pink slip you (big pink box warning you that your actions may be considered spamming) nd threaten to slap a temporary ban on your entire account, and (not very nice) people add to it by reporting you for spamming if you so much as look the wrong way in some cases.

At the end of the day Diabetes Uk has its own forum and i guess they had one over zealous moderator who didnt like the competition. Chin up though honey cause you've done a fab job here x

And thanks Shona - but we are not really in competition - we are just somewhere else... :-) If we could clone Shona - we'd be sorted. Need some more lovelies like her! x

Aww shucks Embarassed but seriously, you dont wanna clone me... well maybe it'd be fun to clone me and get us all together and sit back and watch the fun. Im terrible, half the time my words dont come out properly, i get embarrassed because of it then goof up even more. Think Goofy (without the buck teeth) but female should be good for a laugh if there were lots of me though Laughing

Laughing i go by many names... i have been beanieboo, which evolved from beanflicker (in my naughty days, and i tend not to use anymore).. I like BSM but prefer to be Shona, much easier when you dont have to remember forum names, especially when you meet said friends IRL which i have done several times. I still have a friend that i refer to as Tink because for a few years thats all i knew her by.
