Well if it's a post or a person that you think is breaking the rules, I highly suggest reporting it so the staff can know, if it isn't breaking the rules though there's not much we can do. And sometimes you just have to ignore immature comments, it can suck sometimes, but not everyone is mature.

Well there are lots of THers here. If you find there are some you don't like, then just avoid them and find the more mature ones. We have all age groups here so typically we're going to have different levels of maturity.
You have a couple options here. One is to socialize with those you find more mature (and I promise you, there are lots of mature people on here) or if you feel it would be best for you to leave you may. We'd be sad to see you go, but if you chose to leave or even just take a break you're welcome back at any time.

And here you are living, despite it all.

You can always "Add user to ignore list" by clicking their name. Then you don't see their annoying comments.

Hi Caitlyn,

I'm sorry you feel like this. If you feel like someone is breaking the rules or is being nasty to you, then you can report them, you dont have to put up with it.

There are lots of nice, mature people here on TeenHelp so dont let the immature/nasty people stop you from joining in and having a good time/getting the help that you need.

If you have any questions or just want to chat sometime, give me a shout, my inbox is always open

Take care.

Not all of us are immature and just as everyone else, they can easily be reported and ignored. I have personally never seen immature people and posts on here and I have been here for months, so it is definitely a minority.

A minority you shouldn't have to put up with. Ignore them if they being d#$^^ and talk to the majority! My inbox is always open .

As others have said, if you see anyone breaking the rules, for example trolling, spamming or being rude, then please do report them immediately. The moderating team do their best to keep on top of users like this, but it helps if they get reported.

Secondly, if a user is bugging you and either you've already reported them but it hasn't been dealt with yet, or it isn't technically rule breaking, then you can use the ignore feature that Traci explained. You can find this by clicking on the person's username. A list then drops down and it's the second last option.

The best thing to do is to stay away from people who you don't like. There are a lot of lovely people on TH who won't act in the way you have described. Perhaps try hanging out in some of the other areas of the site, like the social groups, or commenting on people's blogs, or even leaving VMs for people who look like they might make good friends? Unfortunately, it's usually the small number of immature users who get noticed the most, because their comments cause the most stir, so you may have to dig a bit to find the users that you like, but they're here!
