Tantrum How not to get on this message board

Comment: I know damn well I'm entering my name and password correctly, checked the email twice, so the problem's on your end, if you could fix it before I get even more pissed off than I am already.

Indeed that was his first slip. If he has trouble then perhaps he can get a third man in, perhaps one with a fine leg If not then his registration is long off.

Heaven forbid! Don't denigrate yourself. It must a problem at our end, I'm sure snopes will be working overtime in his haste to have you an active member of these boards. Check back in a decade.

Sounds like some of the employees I work with.

"I've turned the monitor on, hit the power button 3 times, and the computer STILL won't go on. It must be a problem on your end! Never mind the other 50 clients, I want you to fix this NOW!"

"The plug? Let me check."

We can put someone on our ignore list before they start posting? That's a really cool function of this new board!

Comment: My account does not work- after ten times! I tried in every way I could to activate it and it will NOT activate.

You have some SERIOUS problems in your registration process- like telling people to wait for an activation email before trying to fix the so-called 'missing items' from your on screen message: "You have empty profile fields that are required to be filled in. Please visit your profile page to update these fields." TRY FIXING THE PROFILE PAGE AND YOU JUST GET THE SAME ERROR MESSAGE OVER AND OVER AGAIN-- EVEN WITH YOUR ACTIVATION EMAIL!

WHAT A MESS! YOU CAN DO BETTER!

Here's a clue: Your responding to the activation e-mail and our approving your registration are two separate steps, and they occur sequentially.
