    Default Here's an idea.....

    I came online this morning and noticed a few spirited discussions that piqued my interest. While reading, certain things occurred to me.

    This website is subject to the limitations of the internet in general, i.e. a lack of personal face to face social contact that makes us deem whether our comments or opinions are acceptable to those that read them.

    The result is that arguments flower where there may not have been one had the tone of the comment been understood. This is also not helped by bad spelling.

    Occasionally, this flowers into abuse, and very occasionally, into a repeated form of psychosocial behaviour that results in a repeated pattern.

    So, I propose that Username and IP bans come into place for repeated offenders, regardless of who they are. If their identity becomes known using a different name/IP address, an immediate ban should follow.

    My reasoning is this.

    There is a certain amount of trust involved in running/using a site such as this. If this trust is breached by a punter or escort threatening to reveal a persons identity or personal details, then that will harm both the victim and the site.

    People prepared to act in this way do not deserve to use the service this site provides as they are a real threat.

    EI, there are competitors. Using a harsh ban like this will make everyone feel safer. Not implementing it will make people go where they feel safer.

    Thank you for your time.

    While I agree with your entire post, these are the parts I agree with the most. However I don't think much can be done about the tone of a comment being misunderstood. It would appear that it is a problem that is going to be around forever on Internet message boards.

    Indeed... it's hard to gauge the mood of a written conversation. Several times I've been asked to chill out and wondered what I'd said!

    I think now more so than ever, people crave information and are incredibly quick to gossip to other punters/escorts with personal information that was originally given to them in confidence.
    For this reason, I don't believe that any escort should give a client any information about themselves, however innocent the question may have been, eg 'What do you do with your time when you aren't escorting?' or 'what do you your family think you are doing?'
    There used to be a time when things were alot friendlier, but now I'm afraid that if somebody asks me a question, I'm inclined to lie in my answer or just not talk about it.

    Like i said before,any escort that gives info about herself to a client regardless of how friendly they are needs her head examined. The key word here is client and sorry guys but if your a friend then you wont be calling in and seeing her in her escort capacity. Otherwise your a client not a friend. Of course im not saying all ppl have big mouths but i am saying that all it takes is one.

    This is so true. Any little piece of info, however small helps build a picture. I really think many many escorts just don't think about the information they give out. Of course it's good to make conversation, but it is possible to stick to generalities.
    Punters too, talking about their lives, using a unique style of writing.

    So many escorts show their faces too. Very soon it will be possible to do google like searches for a face and if your face is on the internet anywhere it will pick it up. Already a simple digital camera can recognise faces, so the technology is already there.

    I think a lot of the younger ladies want to be an escort for a few years and then move on. I don't think they realise that pictures on the internet last forever. I feel in two minds about this, because to be honest the pictures with a real face in it are more attractive to me, but from the escorts point of view, it is a no-brainer. Unless you want to remain an escort forever, you should blur or obscure your face on the internet.
