My post that was rejected was "Lol so funny"...

 

Has anyone else ever gotten this? 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I haven't had that happen to me, that is very odd

Re: Just got a really weird message?

There's a lot of that going around lately.  God forbid you pointed out the obvious and someone's feelings got hurt.

Re: Just got a really weird message?

No doubt. 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I had a post deleted but I've never had one outright rejected. 

 

Come on fess up. What'd you do? Smiley Wink

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Shhhh magpie. 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I've never gotten that? I have no idea why you would get that unless the "Lol so funny" was a response to something inappropriate. 

 

I typed out a very long and well thought out post on the black lipstick thing. However it was why I was against it.  I ended up not even posting it for two reasons. One, the post was from 2011, the girl who originally posted it probably hasn't even saw it and could care less (so we should really just let that post die). Two everyone would take it as "a slap in the face" instead of an opposing opinion. 

 

Even if the reply or post isn't worded in the most eloquent way possible it's no reason to get your panties in a bunch. For starters the issue is lipstick not some big social issue or anything. It's just not worth the headache. There is nothing to gain from it. If you think it looks hot and the other girl doesn't see it as their loss not your victimization.

 

I've put myself in similar situations by saying what I think unfiltered but when you are talking in a beauty forum and not a political forum you wouldn't think you'd have to be so darn diplomatic about it. That doesn't mean everyone should be mean and nasty with each other. Instead it means you should just let it roll off your back. If someone has already made your point, especially if they made a good one, then there's no reason for sixteen people to jump in. Just let everyone give it a hundred hearts to say they agree with it and avoid the pack mentality. 

 

It's part of the reason I browse more on here and do less posts. Everyone on here has already made up their minds. It's like watching political shows that only show one view point. It's important to hear the other points of view even if you disagree with them. Doing this two things will be accomplished, you will see things from a different perspective and you may even be able to make your argument stronger. Likely if you have strong convictions for your argument the opposition won't sway you so you have nothing to fear. 

 

I'm sorry I ranted on your post YouAreAlways. I'm not posting this to anyone in particular either. I've just seen this same scenario play out quite a few times on here. So please no one come to me offended. If you disagree with me I'm perfectly fine with that but I don't want a war. I simply wanted to post my opinion. 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I did nothing!! It was on the black lipstick thread. The comment that I replied to was "Did anyone notice this thread is from 2011?" and I said "Lol so funny!" Because well I thought it was funny.. I wondered if anyone realized this. Because that changes things it puts it more into perspective.

 

It wasnt at anything bad I swear!!

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Well maybe it was just because it was from 2011? Though can't the mods just close a thread?

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Everyone else was still posting...And yes they could close a thread.

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Have you tried to post it since and do you still get the same message? 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Hmm very strange- thanks for the heads up YouAreAlways.

 

I haven't seen that message before and I'm actually having trouble with a few filters and board options we have.. I'm going to report this as this may just be a glitch affecting posts. =/

 

Thanks again! 

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Ruh roh! There is a glitch in the Sephora Matrix? Was that the same lipstick or a different lipstick you saw Diana? Smiley Wink

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Thanks!

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I just got this message too... and my message said "thanks for sharing this!"

 

wtf?

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I have had two posts get rejected lately that were thanking people for a post/reply!  It made me laugh Smiley Very Happy

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I got that today too. The offending post was, "Thanks!!"

 

I seriously need to learn to control myself with the pottymouth, yikes!

Re: Just got a really weird message?

You better! You might get reprimanded. Bad bad girl. 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

lol how dare you laugh... really with the profanity! Smiley Wink

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I had a similar PM several days ago when I posted to the "what are you wearing today?" thread.

 

I also got one a day or two later.

 

I reported this to the SephoraAdmin address (in the Welcome section) and never heard back.

 

The "user" who sent me the PMs was not registered as being an official user through the Sephora site. Yet the PMs went through. I even got emails from Sephora advising me that I had received these PMs.

 

Be careful of links in these PMs too. Something is not right--bad people are slipping through the filters and PMing legitimate users. JMHO

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Ive had that happend once, I replied '' ^_^ Thank you'' then got that same message you got lol. Like what did i say thats so wrong! 

Re: Just got a really weird message?

I just got a weird message too:

Your post - 'Re: I have $60-70 to spend at Sephora. What should I get?', has been rejected by the moderator. Click here to view the post.

 

All I wrote was that I would suggest she looks at eyeshadow palettes and value sets because you get more bang for your buck. With palettes you can get a bunch of different looks and with value sets you can try a bunch of different items for a great price. And then I linked the palettes and the value sets... The horror!!! Linking to Sephora and telling her how to spend money at Sephora gets rejected! LOL.

 

I don't understand how certain posts like this, "thank you", "Lol so funny" can get rejected but some other crazier things that other people type up goes through...

Re: Just got a really weird message?

RIGHT!

Re: Just got a really weird message?

Your post wasn't rejected. These PMs are fake. Not sure if the links in them have some virus or trojan or what. These PMs are not from Sephora.

Re: Just got a really weird message?

But then how come the post actually didn't get posted? I've had this happen a few times.
