    Hi Peace and Sadie. Wow, it's been awhile since I was here. Things still somewhat crazy I see. Last thing I remember was the failed offensive by the mods. Did I miss much?

    Good Monday morning everyone! First to CNN: I did your job for you this weekend, and monitored the blog. I hope somewhere on your end, you can see how many abuse reports there were. I kept the nonsense troll and the dating sites wiped out on the blog from this wyww to the last wyww. Now, I see our little Mandy troll has reappeared. Darn, I guess they haven't caught them in Bangladesh yet. lol... (yeah, that was a good one!) I just want to let "Mandy" know, that I, for one, will be watching. Please folks, hit that abuse button. I can't be here all day during the week. I know, too, that I am not the only person who posts from a computer. I need a lot of backup help to keep the blog clean from the Mandy troll and the dating sites. I've done what I can, so I need some help. I have found that it takes 5 reports of abuse. I ususally do the three abuses (until there is no option to click on), then come back an hour later, and start over. The abuse option will reappear then and that usually takes care of the troll post. If CNN won't monitor this blog, then we will have to do it. Sick of Mandy and the dating sites? HIT ABUSE EVERYTIME YOU SEE ONE! Let's keep this blog free of them. So Mandy, I will be back to finish off your comment in about an hour. And I will not say this in code (still laughing at that one!), your days are numbered on this blog. Either post like a normal human being, or feel the pain of that abuse button everytime you post. Let's keep the blog clean of trolls and dating sites. This has been my public service announcement for today.
    I hope everyone has a great week!

    Good Sunday morning all! I wonder if the dating sites are getting sick of me yet? Too bad for them it is a rainy weekend here. I just keep checking my laptop, and when one pops up, I start hitting abuse. See everybody, it is possible to get rid of this crap. Just takes a click of the button. I wonder if Mandy will pop back again today? That was simply hilarious yesterday. I am not going to make this my life's mission, so please feel free to go after these idiots, too. Like I said, it is a rainy weekend, so I had a lot of time on my hands. Although, it did give me a grin watching their comments come off the site one by one. They should have never made us mad! lol...

    I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Enjoy your day!

      Well, Observer, I see you haven't changed a bit. No, I actually did laundry, cleaned my house, caught up on some dvr'd tv., and did a lot of cooking. You know, kind of like what real woman do. The weather sucked, so I vegged out. It doesn't take much to sit and watch tv, with you laptop sitting there, to hit an abuse button. I'm pretty good at multi-tasking. I was trying to prove a point to Cnn, the nonsense troll, and the dating sites. Go back and read some old threads, and you will understand,or not. I don't really care. I do find it ironic that you would just happen to rear your head now, though. Now, I will finish my break, at my job, like real women do. Have a great day, Observer!

      Well now, you see, this is what happens when the bunch of old birds that have nested hear are rude to someone outside of their little clique. Someone came here offering explanation and was jumped on almost immediately. Sorry, Sade's but you don't own this place and your behavior is just as shameful as the people you try to condemn. I also don't see how you judge outsiders and then ignore sick people like the troll, traci. That's just odd.

    • ※Sadie※

      Trogdor or Observer or whomever-let me enlighten you. I don't attack the people who post on here, regardless of what they say. If you find it objectionable, then you have that option to report it. My main objection was to make the nonsense, hacker Mandy troll, and the dating site people as mad as they were making everyone on the blog with their relentless posts on each thread. I was also hoping that CNN would see all the abuse reports, maybe keying in on their ip addresses to block them off. It's probably just a couple of people anyway. I, like everyone else, was sick of it. I do not own these blogs, and I laugh at the thought. I'm only one measly person on this blog. I like to read the funny comments, and maybe leave one of my own. I say the more people that post, the merrier. So if my behavior is shameful, as you say, I apologize to my fellow bloggers, but I won't apologize for going after those trolls. Did you notice how many people actually commented today, and how few trolls and dating sites there were. Yeah, we were all sick of it. If CNN doesn't want to clean it up, the rest of us will. As far as that Mandira person goes, it was obviously a troll. I wasn't the only one who commented on that one. I can't believe anyone fell for that one. Sorry if that hurts your feelings. So, Observer, or Mandira, or whomever you will become next, don't try to shame me for being a bad person. You don't even know me.

    Good morning everybody! Nicki Minag gets a lot of marriage proposals? Really? I must say that DJ Khaled, at least, has excellent taste in jewelry. Nicki for a wife, well that is questionable.

    So to the troll: How ya liking that abuse button now, buddy? I made it my mission last night to report abuse on every troll comment on here from this wyww to the last one, and I did it at least 3 times per comment. It seems that's what it takes to get a post removed. Did you notice that all your lame comments were gone this morning? Well, you wanted to annoy us. Now, I hope I have annoyed you. You started this war with us. You could have just joined in, but you had to be a giant azz, and make everyone mad. So folks out there, it takes 3 hits of abuse on a post to get it removed. I still encourage everyone to send an e-mail to CNN, too. I don't want to be the moderator on this blog. I have better things to do, but last night was the last straw. So troll, now we know how to take you off this blog, especially if CNN won't block you. Again, you could just join in and post like a normal person, or I and everyone else can report you as abuse on a daily basis. Maybe then, they will permanently block you off. Your choice. I'm sure I'm gonna see a million more of your incoherent posts today, but just remember, I do have an abuse button, just like everyone else that posts from a computer. The choice is yours.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend! Have fun all!

      One more thing on this. I only went after this troll and the dating service posts. So if your post disappeared, that wasn't me. I noticed some Traci posts gone, and a few others. My only intention was to go after them. Must be a few other people on here hitting the abuse button now. Sorry if yours disappeared, though.

    Hello, Marquee bloggers. My apologies for my English. I am not an English speaking person. I am from Bangladesh and I am one of the leads for Information Technology for the Bank of America, Overseas Division. We have been tracking the activities of two recently terminated IT technicians and have pinpointed their online correspondance to these blogs. We apologize for their disruption and assure all of you good people it will end soon. These two offenders were terminated due to having inappropriate materials involving children on their home, as well as their work-related, laptops. They have become full-time Hackers and have sworn retaliation against myself (aka Mandy) and the one site that was allowed to be viewed on their workplace PCs, CNN. Have patience with us, and once again sorry for their actions. We look forward to bringing these two men to justice. Thank you.

      Huh! I am not buying this, either. If they worked at Bank of America, why would they troll the Marquee to get back at you? It makes no sense. Nice try, tough. I would actually believe the inappropriate child thing, though. This person must have several screws loose in his tiny brain.

      Sorry for the confusion. They conduct their correspondance through these blogs. They are trying to gather information on me (and failing). Bloggers reaction to their actions has brought on further retaliation from them towards this site. They post in here but speak in "code" so their conversations seem unintelligable, but I assure you, their nonsense has discernable patterns and we are working on bringing them to justice for their disruptions. Thank you.

These are your exact words, right? Bull Crap, I say. Who do you think you are fooling anyway? In the first place, we post on an entertainment blog. That doesn't make us stupid people. Is this your new way of trolling? Nobody went after "this troll" until it got so unbearable that we had to speak up. "His" only mission was to annoy the heII out of everybody, not the garbage that you are trying to make us believe. Now, I'm sure you will have another response, but it will only prove that these are your new trolling tactics. If your claims are true, then prosecute them. Please send us the article when you have that miraculous arrest, will ya, Mandy? What a joke.
