I am following a new one lately. It appears to be encouraging actual debate of alternate theories and not just the ones espoused by management or whoever yells the loudest. No mobbing allowed. So far so good, hoping their membership grows so more voices are added to the discussion.
What site would that be? can you PM it?

I hope this doesn't get me banned here too, but I joined websleuths three or four days ago because I was interested in a certain local case. I was posting, contributing, and yes, getting a billion "thank yous" for whatever reason. There was one guy on the board who nobody ever replied to because he wrote without any punctuation or capitalization - nobody was understanding any of his comments. I posted a polite reply to him about this, and yes, I got "thank yous" and the indecipherable poster wrote me "sorry," seemed sincere. Onwards.

No, not onwards, my post was deleted by the moderator for being "rude." So I went back on and explained what happened, haha, and to say goodbye forever. That post was also deleted. Having fun, I posted it again. And it was deleted again and I was put on a time out. Yes, a time out like for a four year old. I am done with websleuths now after just three days. It's a terrible site with awful contributors and cranky moderators. The case I was looking at was up to 14 pages, and everyone was still asking the same basic questions over and over again, or just marching on with confused information. Absolutely awful. I did some web sleuthing on my own about the moderator who laid down the time out hammer on me, and she's a woman in her 50's in Indiana. Sorry ladies, but...enough said.

I like sitcoms! You guys rule.

I really don't get that whole "thanking" thing. Do they have to "thank" a certain number of people or they get banned?

Welcome. I'm sure you will find this a much more tolerant, friendlier and informative place.

I hear you about the billion "thank you's". Not only that, but they have to list all of the usernames of the people that thanked the poster. So in cases where there is like 100 "thank you's", it can take up half the screen.

It seems like the vast majority of posts over there are "bumping for...." and "missing 20 years today" type posts that don't really contribute anything to a forum.

I visit WS often, but increasingly for less and less time. There can be some excellent analysis and discussion there, but too much of it is well meaning but annoying old housewives with trite one sentence posts, the kind of people who watch Nancy Grace. It is true that they lean too much toward support and not enough at clear eyed rational analysis. Just because a post doesnt have ten emoticons and repeat how sad blahblah is and how blank should be found soon, etc.. doesnt mean that poster lacks heart or respect. It should go without saying, the sadness of these cases. A good "sleuth" cant get too bogged down in emotion and sentimentality.

Plus, it is crazy how they forbid certain, competing true crime sites from being mentioned, e.g. blink on crime -- the mods immediately delete any post that links to the site. Which is annoying in some colder cases such as Jennifer Kesse's where the ONLY new information comes from the investigators on that site.

Agreed. I like how they even have a whole subforum on there dedicated to bashing WS.

Watch out. The JQ mods are just as fascistic as the ones at Websleuths. And the posts are often even more vapid. Google around and you'll quickly find some examples.

I used to lurk over at Websleuths, checking out the Anna Christian Waters threads, etc. People over there just got too crazy and would only accept one theory on what happened to Anna, and if you didn't accept that, you were out of luck.

You nailed it. And they get that sense of heightened self worth when they nail down a case like Grateful Doe. Cheers to us!

That, coupled with the fact the powers that be, decided I wasn't allowed to join because I didn't have a secured e-mail address. I had a true crime website along with a partner, she tried to get me into Websleuths, as a member she vouched for me, etc, but I still wasn't deemed fit Websleuth material. Perhaps there is a support group for people like me, lol.

The email address thing is nuts. I tried to join and that annoyed me. I wasn't about to get one of their "secured" email addresses just so I could join. Also, the language used in the registration deeply bothered me, along with reports on other websites about the creator/owner.

I think WS has plenty of good members and well-intentioned posters. And I do still lurk and read their threads on occasion. However, the policies and some of the posters bother me so much I'm glad I didn't join. Thiussat mentioned one of the inane policies in his original post. Others I've seen include reprimands for silly reasons. The Springfield Three board got so besieged with arguments that it's been closed. That being said, I'll still with lurking.

I joined a year ago and only wrote 12 posts. I rarely log in. I'm surprised that people with Yahoo e-mails haven't been able to join. I have an AOL e-mail and was accepted. Usually if a website doesn't accept Yahoo users, they also won't accept AOL users. But, trust me, you're not missing much. At least you can still read the messages even if you can't post.
