Original Post

Hypothetically, if you've asked someone not to convo you or talk to you in the forums because you feel harassed by them, and they convo you and post in your threads after you've asked them to stop doing both, what do you do? Contact etsy support?

What do you do when all etsy support says is they can't stop people from posting in the forums, but if you're harassed to email them?

Even though you already told them you feel harassed and threatened?

I don't think there is anything you can do.

then follow their instructions and contact admin again. But they can't stop people from posting in your threads unless they banned them from the forums and they would probably not do that just because you feel harassed.

You should be able to get the convos stopped, but the forum posts, I don't think so. I don't think it matters who starts the thread, everyone is allowed to post in them (if they haven't been banned from the forums)

Well, you can be harassed via convo or email. If you've asked the other person not to contact you again and they do, then you report it to admin and they WILL handle it.

Unfortunately, forums are public areas. I would think the rules would be different because it's something you can choose whether or not to participate in. So I'm not 100% sure that 'harrassment' could exist in a public forum.

That's just my hypothetical opinion. :)

you have 2 choices
(we always have 2 choices in anything)

ignore it or you stop posting in the forums.

So what would you like for admin to do?

Unfollow username?

Are you sure you want to stop following this person?
