There were a couple of postings that said to give the unwanted suitor the phone number of their local police or out-of-state police.
Others suggested people give phone numbers of churches, zoos, a different and wrong number. As a police officer who does man the non-emergency calls, it is not our job to fob off unwanted suitors because you find what they are doing to be offensive. We have many calls that need our attention and our lines need to remain open even though it is not a life threatening emergency.
It is our understanding that the lady in question has more than one account on Pogo and when one account gets negative attention via her actions she abandons it and moves to the next one using the same routines.
My suggestion to all players is that just because you hide behind a “alternate identity” doesn’t mean you have to act out your fantasies. Just sign me, The Coinkeeper Thank you for your letter, and for not accusing me of having a sexist slant.
It’s really shameful that you can’t tell the truth about Pogo and ALL of the dirty people. No doubt, but I was responding to directly to her specific situation.
Should I have mentioned that there are ‘dirty women’ too?
If the talk is salacious enough to be a Terms of Service offense, then report them.
Take note of how the next letter-writer brings to light the fact that there are “dirty women” too, without resorting to accusations of sexism. Nettie, Let me first say that I think you and all others who work at Pogo do an excellent job at keeping those of us who play on a daily basis entertained! I’ve been reading the letters about “Dirty Men” for weeks if not for months now and it occurred to me that there is a side of the coin that has not been addressed as of yet. Believe me there are quite a few females on Pogo who are/have/will continue to “Hunt, chase, harangue and or attempt to break up marriages/engagements etc without so much as a thought to the damage they can do and little if no remorse for the events.
As you can see by my name I am a female, I am married and have been a member of Pogo since the 90’s (although I have changed my player name since then) and a paying Club member since 2003.
In all this time I’ve only encountered one “Dirty Man” but I’ve seen more than my fill of “Dirty Ladies.” My husband, who also plays on Pogo, has been hunted, chased, tormented, harangued and followed because of his player name by women who either assume that because of his player name he is a filthy old man or for whatever reason assume he’s so well endowed that they have to just have him.
Case in point one “lady” who, even though she knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that my husband is married (his profile as well as mine emphatically state that we are married to each other and happily), chased him for 6 months making every attempt to convince him to leave me and our family for her.
Probably for balance, yes, but it didn’t occur to me at the time.
