Hello everyone,

I haven't posted lately because I have been trying to get my business going and have been very busy lately. I am posting today because I was appalled after reading something today. I checked my email and saw that someone had posted a comment on one of my pics...a naughty pic to be exact. I logged onto the site to check the comment and the comment was "It sucks". I must admit that was not at all one of my better pieces of work, but a friend insisted she wanted that for her birthday and so I attempted to do the best I could. I am not one to dismiss any suggestions as to how to improve...I welcome all CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, but for someone to just say it sucks was plain rude. The only answer I can give myself for such a tacky comment is that the person who posted it has mastered the art of cake decorating and is used to displaying his or her pieces in world renown literature. I apologize if I am making this a bigger deal than it is and am venting for no reason but I just can't believe that someone would be so rude as to criticize those who are trying their best at something. I would really appreciate other input on this, and please let me know if I was wrong at being upset and making this post.

thanks,
nestle

NOONE has the right to be so rude to anyone-we all have our opinions on cakes-be it good or not-but it is just plain rude to say what was said. If that is the way the person felt-they should have kept their mouth shut and just not commented at all=there is no steadfast rule that you must comment on every cake (even if a moderator you can ask to not comment on a cake you feel very negative about). I am sorry that someone decided to be so rude and juvenile.

maybe since it was a naughty cake "it sucks" was meant to be a tongue in cheek compliment? just trying to give a possibly positive reason someone would say that

Havenleigh, the comment that they made was uncalled for..the point to posting the pic was to show that you tried, and at the worst to get constructive criticism..i'm sorry you got a comment like that on your cake. Keep on bakin' icon_biggrin.gif.

Smashcakes, I thought the same thing, so I went to see for myself before replying. Its not. This comment was meant to be rude. The member that sent it is new to CC. The members name is "cansiam". I took it upon myself to tell the member that their rude comments are unwelcome and unwanted. We all could use a little constructive criticism sometimes, but they offered none. What they said was meant to be hurtful.

Heavenleigh, I thought that your cakes were good, and as long as your friend enjoyed them, thats all that matteres. thumbs_up.gif

people like this suck icon_lol.gif
Your cakes are awesome & I would not worry about it. I had this problem with someone too. Some people just like to stir the pot and get people fired up.
WE know YOU are GREAT!

Which cake is it? Male? Female? Don't worry about it Nestle, I think the person posting it being rude on purpose. Try not to let it bother you if you can. I couldn't find it but I sure did notice cansiam is making a lot of comments that I think are very inappropriate on a lot of cakes. If you looks through the female cakes, cansiam posted a lot of things there. I think I will PM a moderator about this.

I too looked up Cansiam in the member list to find that they are new (joined yesterday) and that they have not made any post or bravely posted any pics of their own cakes. Obviously, this person is not interested in baking and joined to view naughty cakes........ How sad for that person.

Please don't the action of this one person upset you. By the way........ I attempted to do a 3-D cake like that yesterday with no luck. icon_lol.gif

Hang in there,

That's a good idea. I checked and cansiam just joined on Feb. 23rd. Odd that they would join and then just slam people if they truly wanted to be a member of this site.

I don't really think they understand what this site is about. Maybe they're just here for the pics and think they can do as they please. I hope the moderators look into this one and point it out to Jackie and/or Heath.

I think it's STRANGE that someone new is immediately on the naughty gallery anyway. (kind of a specialized thing don't ya think?)There's so much to look at and learn. And no posts anywhere. I JUST got access to it now so I could check out the cake, but couldn't find it.

I agree. If you have nothing good to say..say nothing!

Just plain OBNOXIOUS.

Consider the source and ignore it ignorant.

Easier said than done. I know.

You can PM Jackie-she will probably check it later tonight if she has a chance. I remember having someone on the site not tooo long ago who started bashing everyone-needless to say she wasn't on very long. This site is for CONSTRUCTIVE feedback if requested-it is ALWAYS for support-noone is perfect-but apparently a new poster thinks she is-if ya can't play nice-get off the playground!

Guys, if this person is showing as new and they are hanging out on the naughty board they are a troll... I would almost guarantee it. Don't waste your time or energy on them. You'll only encourage them to come back and do it some more!!

Well, I pm'd the person-they/he/she doesn't have to like my opinion, but what the heck-I don't like theirs approach. WE are all grownups here and all of enjoy hearing words of encouragement-everyone keep up their good work-one bad apple doesn't have to spoil it for everyone else.

Cans-I-am?
Hmmm.

So, is there a way to search by author for comments on pictures?

Anyway..I saw one comment where they used the f word.
I say we just let it go and let the administrators do their investigative work and bann them.

Go to MEMBERLIST at the top of your screen. Members are in there from the date they joined, not alphabetically, I think.
