Folks,

I received a wholly unprovoked abusive email through my ProZ profile, from someone who was not logged in. The message came from ‘Wizzie’ at the address ihatefachos@yahoo.fr Is there any way to track this sender? Thanks for any help.

Forward it to proz.com staff via support request Sep 19, 2005

Hi,
If you have reasons to believe that the e-mail you recived violates the profile mail rules, please send the copy (with full headers, this is important) to proz.com staff using the Support Request form (click Support in the top right menu).
Also, in your profile settings you can block receiving mail from unlogged individuals. (This of course doesn't help much once you already received hatemail).

HTH,
Magda

Mark as "junk" and then ignore. Life's too short to worry about losers who send hatemail.

By the way, your profile is quite amusing. Is it supposed to be as it is? "No offers, ever" !!

If the email is really abuse you can click on "show headers" and foward it directly to abuse@yahoo.fr and they may cancel the account...it's probably an email just for sending abuse anyway, hence the "ihatefachos" part of the address.

For real? Sep 19, 2005

Sorry to hear about that abusive email.

Is your profile page for real?
"And, most importantly, at BILLS we have 1,683 years of experience serving overweight people with dyed hair and disheartening clothing who don’t understand what a sentence is supposed to do. "

Email address now blocked Sep 19, 2005

Hi,

I am very sorry to read you received an unpleasant email via your profile.

Contacting ProZ.com Support is definitely the best solution, but moderators could help, too.

I have blocked that particular address after reading your posting, but I am afraid that that was a one-time email address, created for the occasion.

Giuliana

Now if *I* only understood what BILLS really does... Sep 21, 2005

I don't get it. What, if anything, do you really do (in the real world, with the rest of us)? Do you actually translate or interpret or have a real job like the rest of us or do you just spend your spare time creating bizarre, semi-pretentious, highly unimpressive, relatively hard to understand vaguely pseudo-intellectualized websites that read just like a very poorly translated Derrida manuscript that was "deconstructed" and then "re-assembled" (after being found by the side of the road)by a group of second grade ESL learners on the bus to Biarritz?

Jack... Sep 22, 2005

Love your profile. Can you write a similar one for me?icon_wink.gif I dunno...just finished reading the latest Bret Easton Ellis novel, which put me in a strange mood and something in your profile really speaks to me...

Wholly unprovoked abusive email ? Oct 28, 2005

Wholy unprovoked? The least one can say is that you're not a good sport, Jack! It must have been great fun to write a Kudoz profile full of silly insultings towards prospective clients. So why not let those who don't like your sense of humour express their feelings too?
