What I think GAG needs is better filters on comments where someone mentions another user's name. Is it really antagonizing? Or is it all just friendly banter?
I once wrote "message me (username), I can't message you" and it got removed for antagonizing. WHAT THE FUCK? And the people who removed this comment won't even admit that they've made a mistake by removing a comment that's not worthy of being removed.
I think the admins should realise that they're not gods, that they're humans too, who do make mistakes sometimes.
Users are allowed to speak about each other. Only negative comments are not allowed. As DodgersGM already mentioned, this can be found in the posting guidelines in the FAQ. www.girlsaskguys.com/faq/posts
I think it would be cool if you could tag a user in your comment (like how on Facebook the name will be blue and that person gets a notification) because sometimes you come across something and you know that a certain user has experience in that area and you say something like "hey [username] you should check this question out" or something like that and that user will get a notification that they were tagged and then they could go check it out.
We do allow GAGers to mention each other and talk to each other, of course :-) We don't want you guys talking badly of GAGers though, badly of them or to them. We did have a GAGer question ban for a while, because the site was flooded with them, less REAL content, but that ban has been lifted... however we're already seeing the quick flood again, so we'd appreciate it if people would be mindful of that and not repeat GAGer questions they saw asked just a week ago. We simply prefer people use the site to get opinions and advice on OTHER things as well, not JUST to talk about each other.
I agree with Yadda. Yea, an internet popularity contest is the perfect word for it haha look around the questions that are being asked now "who's your favorite?" "who's the funniest?" the same people are being brought up every time which makes other users feel left out doesn't bother me either way because i will never meet these people haha so to each is own.
If we were allowed to do that, I think there would a lot of shit talk - like high school. And most of my comments gets deleted anyways-.-'
"Member Posts -- We do NOT allow members to talk negatively of other GAGers in posts. If you have issues with a member, do not post questions/opinions/comments regarding the member. For example, "She was banned!" or "I'm glad he's gone!" "I wish she would leave GAG!" "He's a jerk!" will all be removed"
