(can someone maybe make this a sticky please?!?)
Okay...so everyone knows we have been having a problem here with posers...people posting pics that just aren't them. Well.... it seems that yet another issue is starting to arise. I have seen so many posts just automatically accusing someone of being one of these posers. Posts that really have no valid reason as to why they think the post is of a poser. I saw a beautiful picture of a certain pose, and it didn't seem fake to me...or to about 20 other comment posters.... and then there is that one person who says (basically) "I know that's not you so HA!" Now...imagine yourself in the original posters shoes.... she just wanted us to critique her...to see her picture. Not to accuse her of lying!! So here are a few "guidelines" that we should remember.
1: If you just have a question or reason why you think it might be a poser, PM them first!! It could save a lot of unnecessary embarrassment.
2: If you're going to be a detective, make sure you know ALL the details!! Maybe there was a mistake in the original post that the member cleard up a few comments later. I have seen that a ton of times!! Like... By the way, sorry guys, forgot to say that's not me in the pic!
3: Just be nice!! Always treat people how you would like to be treated. It's the golden rule.
I think that if we're all careful about what we say, dance.net would be a better place for everyone. I recently read a post from a new member saying that she sees a lot of b*tchiness going on here. Now, I have been surfing dance.net for awhile.... I just joined 3 weeks ago but have been surfing it for a few months. Dance.net is a wonderful place to be!! Do we really want people to think that dance.net is b*tchy????
(sorry if this offends anyone...it's meant to help everyone!)

Thank you!!!! I can't say that enough. I just read a post from one member who was asked some very embarassing questions in the replies. If anyone had bothered to read the poster's bio, alot of question would have been answered. Thank you posting this and making it a sticky. -Angel

I totally agree, and I think the accusations are really too harsh. But I also think that the amount of posing that is going on is WAAAY outta control. But if you think about it, maybe the posers are most in need of someone to be nice about them... cuz if they were really secure and sure of themselves, why would they need to put pictures of other people online? just a thought. luvz,
