She totally reads those PMs on Etiquette Hell. Don't do it.

I'm almost positive I was banned for sending PMs with links to people. That, at least, would fit the timeline, as I had't posted anything else on that board all weekend.

Might be worth it though. At least it was to me, as I've seen at least one of those posters here since then!

Oh, I didn't remember that you got banned, Maria. So yeah, that does cover everybody.
Sorry!

Eh, no sweat. Like I said, it was worth it  :) Just a bit peeved that 8+ years in good standing apparently didn't count for anything. But what can you do. I already feel more comfortable here.

I just checked that out. The number of people who seem to have no idea how the business of blog/social media marketing work is...surprising.

"I can't believe how this and that blogger just talk about nothing but stuff they bought. Isn't there more to life than materialism and shopping?"

Well, yeah. But selling stuff is their *job.* Perhaps it was just the day. Or my mood.

I still have an account.  I'd rather not send a massive number of them, but if there is anyone in particular people are missing I wouldn't mind sending a few.

Just in case someone doesn't know how to do this one could post on Facebook or place it in a sig on forum venues or in email this: https://politeparadise.createaforum.com/index.php <-- Copying just that url and pasting it with a tag (words) of "Want to talk and learn about Etiquette? A new forum to ask your questions or just lurk and learn!".

I'm going to do that right now.

Occurred to me that Ask a Manager has a weekend free for all. People can talk about anything not just work stuff... so it might be possible to mention this forum (and Modern Manners).

I lurk rather than post there so I may not be the best person to do it or to judge how this might go down with AAM.

Putting it out there though. Maybe there are regular AAM posters/readers out there who may have a view? Or who may be comfortable posting something there?

I think it would work if someone would reply to one of the etiquette issues that is brought up there on the weekend, and they could slip in the link. I seriously thought of that a couple of times this weekend, but couldn't think of what to say!
