I seldom get vexed..nor have I ever posted a vexed post but this really burns me..I had a WL come up...was all excited...waited and today I get a note from the club saying the person said they are on vacation till Oct   IF they can email the club to tell them that WHY didn't they just put their shelf on hold before they got my hopes up? Jeeze what happened to common sense ..............MEGA GRRRRRR  ..how rude and thoughtless

So my question is can/will the club note this kind of behavior and start to put an end to it?

The site does do something about it, if an account is missing too many transactions, they put the member on hold. If the site is contacting you telling you the member is on vacation, I suspect they have stepped in and are dealing with the person's account because they are not maintaining it correctly. They usually won't do that kind of stuff on a member's account unless there was an emergency or something.

Ahhh cool Melaine thanks..Ya know in and ER situation I can understand and all and took that into consideration  but then when she wrote the club I would think a small note to me saying sorry an ER situation  came up would be polite or nice..though I got the feeling being they said she said VACATION until Oct that ..she was..on a vacation....that's what's so vexing.....Anyhow...my being vexed is past lol see how quickly I mellow ...  <-- not sure what this dude is doing but he is cute
