OK, I have a problem that I am sure one of you brilliant people can help with. As an AW board mod/administrator, people come to me all the time with their complaints. OK, some of it is legit. But some of it is just plain whining, and of the whining, some of it is about he said - she said stuff like "So-and-so isn't who she/he says she/he is" and "So-and-so is bothering me". (And if that has a flavor of irritated kindergarten teacher, I've reproduced my feelings well...)
In the temporary absence of our fearless leader, Jenna, I need some advice on how to deal with all this. (Fair warning - since the buck stops here - i.e. I'm the one who will get my butt kicked if I make a wrong choice - I may not *take* your advice, but I want to know what it is anyway.)
What should be done when someone suspects a post-er of having a hidden agenda, of posting just to cause trouble, or of being someone other than who they say they are, especially big diffs like older/younger than reality, wrong gender, not affiliated with PA when they are, and so on? Assume no damage has been done... at least, not yet. It just makes people uneasy. Or angry.
I'll share my conclusions on it later, but for now, assume I have no opinion. (Oh, come on, use your imagination...)
I'll delete this post after a while.
