Find A Grave - Followed the rules, but I got punished not the harasser
This year, there was a suicide in our area.As the deceased is a distant relation through marriage, I created and sponsored a lovely, respectful memorial that I felt our side of the family could be proud of viewing.
Two weeks later, a 13 year account created a duplicate memorial and used his link to harass the decedent's family. He posted on online forums begging people to leave comments for the family, turning our cousin's death into a sick little popularity contest for him. We reported him to site administration and, instead of banning him or deleting his page, they merged it wanted that. Now our nice little page is full of those nasty vulgar comments and we can't remove any of them !
The last straw, the insult to injury, they locked down the page! We can't edit or update any information on the memorial! We can't add or change any of our family member's picture. We did nothing wrong and we were penalized over the immaturity and harassing behavior of another person.
I will never give this site a dime again.The only reason I haven't deleted all my pages and left that place is because I can't bear to see our loss turned into a circus again.
Review about: Find A Grave Account.
Reason of review: Action taken w/o our permission.
Preferred solution: Better practices. We did nothing wrong here but we got shafted..
