Writing.Com's Harassment Complaint Form allows you to submit a complaint concerning an issue with another Writing.Com member. Before using this form, read the following information in full and be sure you are correctly submitting.|
What is Harassment?
Harassment in ongoing abuse by one or more site members of another site member that can only be rectified by Writing.Com's removal of a member's account.
Writing.Com can not force members to get along. Harassment complaints can not be used to settle disputes amongst friends, groups or other similiar disputes. Writing.Com can not be a mediator in disputes and it is not possible for Writing.Com to be involved in or fully understand the detailed personal nature of some disputes that will naturely occur when people interact.
Can this form be used to submit Review System Abuse?
Yes, this is the correct form to submit abuse of the Review System and to report Review System cheating. When this is the case, other issues of harassment are ignored. Writing.Com will investigate the abuse and determine the correct course of action.
What can be expected when a Harassment Complaint is submitted?
While not all requests are handled in the same, in most cases, Writing.Com will notify both parties via email that a complaint has been filed. A request will be made for all parties to cease communications and avoid one another at all costs.
If, after the request is made, communication continues, Writing.Com will be forced to take further action to end the continued harassment. Further action may include account removal and banning from the site.
Is the identity of the member who submits the Complaint kept private?
Unfortunately the nature of harassment complaints means the identity of all involved parties must be disclosed to the other parties (most of the time). This is not the case for most reports of review system cheating.
Writing.Com strives to respond to all complaints as quickly as possible. Depending on the time and day of your submission, the response time should be within 1 to 3 business days.
