So frustrated: Ignorant user said I'm a scammer, now my posts aren't showing up...

Postby Mindcandy » Thu Oct 11, 2012 1:20 pm

So yesterday I posted a question asking the Amex credit card community if anyone with an Amex platinum card could check if there's availability at a resort I wanted to go to.

Some guy immediately accused me of being a scammer, insinuating that the Amex website I had helpfully linked to was a scam website. I tried replying pointing out that that website was linked from the main amex website, but my post was not approved. Several other people jumped into the thread, and someone also pointed out that my link was valid. However, that original guy who accused is now saying I'm trying to get access to their usernames and passwords (which I obviously didn't ask for), and I can't clear my name because the mods aren't approving any of the 5 replies I posted to various questions in the thread.

So angry at being accused and not given a chance to defend myself :(

My apologies mindcandy, that was my fault. I misread your question. There was another time someone made an account to try to scam the forum by asking for money and stuff, so I overreacted, again, I'm sorry. Can we make peace?
