CS Sided with a Troll
Posted April 26th, 2013 - 8:37 pm by from Atlanta, United States (Permalink)
Today, I received my first negative reference from a CS troll. Like many of you, I work tirelessly for CS. Today, someome with little to no connection to CS was able to taint my profile with a negative reference, and CS wouldn't budge on it. Here is the back story:

A couple days ago, I did a stupid thing and called a member a "dickhead" in a privater message. Frankly, he was being one in the group. But I was wrong. I shouldn't have done that. I shouldn't have fed a troll. In fact, I wrote a note of apology to him.

Didn't matter.

He went on a campaign of hate against me. He even found my Facebook profile and discovered that my cousin had died and posted in CS about that. He left a message saying that he hated me and he was going to comment on EVERY post in our group just to make me miserable. He said all of this PUBLICLY. He crerated a fake profile just to leave comments.

He posted several abusive comments against me which were all flagged and deleted by members.

I decided it was best to leave him a negative reference.

He left me a retaliatory reference.

I flagged it.

CS sided with him. His negative reference is still on my profile CS has told me they think it's totally fine.

Again, a member PUBLICLY goes on a hate campaign against me. I leave him a negative reference.

COUCHSURFING SIDES WITH HIM.

If anyone at CS wants to dispute this, I give 100% unresricted permission to publish ANY of my private emails to him or my comments to him.
