[Thank you for your kind words. I must say you brought up a very good remark about the meaning of the word and it could hv met something else do to our different cultures, and i did not think of that at the time. But the CH did not state that it didn't mean this he automaticly said"" well what's up with your name Xx4me4uxX"? (my chat name) And then e1 in that chat room startd to bombard me with insults, until i told them about my daughter. At this point he puts me in private mod and says if i have a prob to email support and acting like an idiot(i'm sry for the mean word).. And then leaves me there and has the gaul to leave the chat ban in affect. It litterly made me sick to my stomache. I must add tho that the CH Hotred was extremely sypathetique to my situation and she sent a copy of the conversation to support for me, which i'm very grateful. But that 1 rotten apple in the bussel is 1 tomany for me..but I'm glad that you brought this subect up because i was clueless in knowing other definitions to this word...thank you for the info. But the site should be more aware of these things, because i'm sure i'm not the only Canadian who plays...errmm played there and they should make sure that any name that is used CH's or player's should not offend anyone. I might be over reacting to this, but from where i stand theres no excuse for what happened and for this name.
Thank you again I'm very greatful that ou took the time to explain this to me and that your aware ofthe horror of bullying.
Have a great weekend and Good luck with your gaming.

4Grace, I am really sorry to hear of your experience, and also about your sweet daughter's passing and bullying experience. And I completely understand you being upset. Sometimes it is just too hard to deal with reminders of tragic or upsetting experiences.
I don't think that CH handled your questions or responses well, and should be retrained in customer satisfaction and empathy.
I do want to say that sometimes different cultures have entirely different meanings for certain words. For example "fanny pack" in America is a pursey-wallet- pouch worn around the waist to keep your valuables where you can see and get to them. But I've heard that in England, a fanny pack is the name for a certain part of the female anatomy. It would be embarrassingly wrong for someone from England to comment on your 'fanny pack', but in the USA, there is no harm in talking to you about your fanny pack.
And I'm not suggesting that the CH's 'name' falls into this category. I have no clue. I just think that for a small amount of peace of mind for you, you may want to consider the saying "bully for you". To me, that means "good for you!" and not a wish for a bully to come into your life.
I won't be visiting Bingo on the Box, so you did get at least one person to listen to your story and understand that the behavior of the CH reflects on the whole site, and that person was just out of line and should have shown you more respect.
I was bullied quite a bit myself, and sometimes still get that kind of treatment. Back then, it was just 'the way things are' and nobody made much effort to stop the behavior or teach me how to deal with it. So I felt really bad about myself when the other person should have been carrying that burden. Again, I am sorry for your experiences and I know you will find a bingo site where you can feel comfortable and have fun. Please continue to tell any story or vent or whatever you need or want to do here at this site. We are like family, and it's good that you spoke up.
