Rant Corner #3

It’s been a long time since I did this and I have sitting on this all weekend. Now it has to come out. So, here goes: On Facebook, I am an admin for an Author’s group. Before I signed up for the job, there was no structure. I mean, spammers were posting porn that didn’t involve writing and people were posting like crazy. I decided to stand up and take control. When I became admin, I put in place a schedule for posting different things on different days in the group and set up a queue. Ever since March, I have been doing a good job.

On Friday, a member asked if I deleted their post in the queue. I asked him what he posted and reminded him it was Book Link Friday. He had posted a couple of book cover pictures that he wanted an opinion on. He tried to point out a loop hole and I pointed out the schedule to him. (Posting book covers are Mondays, BTW.) He replies with this:

“Well this Friday! ..or leave a group Friday! It’s all the rage and you don’t have to wait for approval! Have a nice day!”

I explained about the spammers and the schedule itself in the group description. He goes on to say that he wants a reply ASAP and that he didn’t belong in the group. He even went as far as to tattle on me to the original admin. I managed to get it sorted out with him. Okay, don’t cope an attitude just because you didn’t follow the schedule! He’s getting mad at me for enforcing my own rules? The schedule is even in the pictures that a member made for me and the group description! If I bent the rules for one member, I would have to do it for the rest and the structure I came up with would be render mote. Just follow the rules that an admin lays down and don’t be childish about it!

<Exhale> I’m done now.

Feel free to follow this blog and tell two people about it. In return, maybe they will tell two people and so on and so forth.
