Complaint / review text:
I recently posted an autographed album on AUTOGRAPH MAGAZINE. The album and signatures on it are over twenty years old. I spent a lot of time presenting it with pictures and detailed images.
I thought I was going to get some professional feedback on my piece of music memorabilia.instead I was lambasted, insulted, threatened and acquired several stalkers trying to steal my personal information to use against me. Apparently the site is overrun by cyber bullies hell bent on discrediting and personally attacking anyone that shows any autograph that is not "IMO certified" whatever that means. If your autograph has not been "IMO verified" do NOT even mention it on autograph magazine unless you want to be demonized with endless insults, be called every name in the book and have criminals google your name looking for personal information to slander and threaten you with. I'm not exaggerating the site is infested with criminals.
Although the attacks were public the administrator Steve Cyrkin did nothing to thwart the hyper aggressive hecklers committing blatant malicious harassment on his blogs and forums. I was forced to withdraw all information I posted on the site within a couple of hours and still there are stalkers harassing me from the site now a week later. This has got to be the most hostile online environment I have ever made the mistake of visiting.
Beware Steve Cyrkin does not monitor or control the activity of the members of autograph magazine with any level of responsibility. The site lacks any competent management or integrity. It is a gauntlet of viscous heathens and naysayers who are as about as nasty and vile as anyone can possibly get. I was so personally violated and grossly attacked for showing a record it is my responsibility to warn my online community the dangers they face by visiting and posting on autograph magazine. The administrator offered no apology only insult to injury so it appears he is quite pleased with the way his members treat newcomers to the autograph collecting and sharing scene.
If you are looking for information or advice on the hobby of autograph collecting I would strongly advise you to avoid autograph magazine at all costs. It is a very unpleasant place to visit and a potentially dangerous place to disclose personal information. Utilize any alternate venue. They are much more rewarding and the administrators keep tabs on the hostile users. I found half a dozen alternate sites better than autograph magazine.
