Uber suspension/destination filter

    3 days ago I got an email from Uber saying a rider said that I asked them where they were going and my account was being suspended. I don't know what they are talking about, have no memory of this and they are not responding to my messages via support.

    I also saw on this forum that there are plenty of glitches with the destination filter. Seems unfair that they would suspend me based on what a passenger said without turning to me first, not even semblance of due process. Understand not a court of law but one would thing that could see my driving record/rating and perhaps reach out and chat before suspending my account. Still waiting to get resolved thought I would post here for any suggestions.

    Thank you

    Thanks for replies. Not really crazy about you posting political comments here. But since you did, you should read the book The Nightingale's song


    No matter what one's politics, the fact is John McCain was captured, tortured and is a hero who deserves the respect of all Americans. The fact that one would label him a traitor is sad thing and shows just how ugly our politics have become.

    Ya.. Songbird John is a traitor.
    Hero's don't try to overthrow a duly elected president by running false political information...
    He tried so hard to undermine people's vote... therefore he is a traitor.
    That dude ran his mouth for 7 years about Ocare repeal, and when the time came, he put his tail between his legs and ran like a coward that he is.

    He is a coward and a traitor.

    Do the research... .... it's not just me that calls him a traitor. ...and look at this recording. This POS helped the enemy in Vietnam.
    He is a massive traitor.

    The "political comment" is his signature line. It will appear every time that he posts something.

    Your Amazon link is a violation of the Rules of the Forum and Terms of Service. Please do not post links such as that.

    .............about your question............................

    Odds are that someone is trying to hustle Uber for a free ride. This goes double if it was a surge ride. If a customer complains, Uber usually believes him and affords the driver no opportunity to render an account of himself. Take a trip over to the Green Light Centre (it is near the Minnesota Avenue Safeway on Benning Road and Minnesota Avenue). Often that will get you re-instated, but, with a warning.

    Oh, and Lyft is no better; in fact, it might be even worse............................

    Hope you have your medication.
    Mika can get you crazy if you start discussing his political views. He is a little cu-cus but other than that he is OK.
    Friendly advice, stick to the mattter in hand.
    You’ll end up discussing INFOWARS.

    I repeat, no matter one's politics, Senator McCain deserves the respect of all Americans

    You can mention the title to the book, you just can not post links to Amazon about it.

    We do make exceptions for things that have to do with this business. If someone is discussing how to get rid of smells, we will tolerate someone's posting where to get deodorisers. We will not tolerate someone's using the Forum to sell deodorisers unless he clears it with the Administrators, first.

    From what I understand, it’s only illegal to discriminate based on destination in DC. I got a warning about that sometime last year. They actually called me and put my account on hold until a REAL person spoke to me.

    I do DF a lot. If I'm in Georgetown with it set to Dulles and I get a rider that wants to go to Capitol Hill I have and will tell them (nicely) GTFO I'm not going that direction. I've done this several times, always showing them the DF, telling them I have to be out there at a certain time and that there's no way I can take them and make it in the allotted time. I am sure to throw Uber squarely under the bus and back it over Uber several times.

    I would welcome a call from some dip**** at Uber who I could launch into about how inept their DF is at times.

    To call fuber and gryft shameless is a big understatement.

    When it suits them, they insist that taxi regulations don't apply to them, EXCEPT when it's to their BENEFIT, like in this case.

    At that point, they're more than willing to hide behind mommy's regulations skirt.

    Fornicate both of those companies.

    New2This — I too am having more problems with DF with passengers going the wrong direction.

    I’m curious about your technique. After you accept a ping, you can’t get back to the DF screen to show the passenger until you cancel, right? So are you calling them or arriving and asking them? I.e., which one pisses the passenger off less? Lol

    I’m starting to drive in the mornings more before my day job, and I cannot risk being late with this buggy DF crap where they send you people going the exact wrong destination.

    When I arrive and start trip and see their destination. It will show route to their destination and your DF.

    This one I took because it was late night, high Surge and Longhauling to Bethesda at night is a breeze.

    If it had been 5:30 P.M. weekdays I would've told her I need to be here and you're way the fornicate out of my way.
