Default The Handling of Personal Attacks Going Forward

Hey everybody,

The mod team and I have been doing some talking about the landscape that's been observed over the last few months. I'm sure everybody has noticed that there seems to be a lot more personal attacks being thrown around lately. I don't have to name names. We're all thinking of them, but there are more than just those 2-3 that have either been attacked themselves or have gotten out of line. The following is word for word our rules about how members are supposed to behave on this forum. I've highlighted the things I will talk further about.

Quote:
While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, trolling, purposeless inflammatory posts or members deliberately provoking another member into committing any of these acts.
I want to be clear that the other rules are still in place and will be enforced per usual but this thread/announcement is really just to go over the bold areas of the rules.

Personal Attacks - Seems to be the go-to option when in a heated debate/pissy fit with somebody lately. We are no longer a large community. We have grown smaller and more isolated. Personal info is becoming more common due to some of us being friends and also because it's nice to fill people in of life events since most of us have known each other for the better part of a decade(Even longer in some cases).

Using this personal info to insult somebody is NOT to be tolerated anymore.

Discretion will be used of course but these types of personal attacks have no place here and the mod team, I admit, has been a bit lenient on such events. Family members will not be brought into arguments to hurt another member. Personal hardships will not be used to hurt other members. No more.

Discretion, again, will be used. For example...

Batlord calls me fat. I retort by telling him he has no friends.

We've joked about this with each other for a long time. It's a joke between us. This will not be seen as personal attacks. We're still allowed to have fun around here. It'll be more obvious when this rule is broken. I just don't want you guys to think we're going to suck the fun out of throwing some light jabs out there. This isn't the case. You all know what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the things that go too far. Those end now.

Purposeless Inflammatory Posts - This is a bit less of an issue but occasionally I see something said on here, not aimed at a particular member, but made with the sole purpose to piss somebody off. These posts will be deleted and warnings given out.

Punishment

Bans will be given to those who throw out personal attacks. Repeat offenses will receive longer ban lengths and may result in a perma-ban.

Be fucking nice to each other.

We are ALL going through hardships, bouts of this and that, rough times, etc...

We are ALL living lives. We're humans. Most of us are friends. I'm tired of seeing down right nasty sh*t being thrown at each other. 98% of us are adults. If somebody disagrees with you, do NOT go for the throat with personal sh*t. It's over.

Thank You.

-- The Mod Team

Might I suggest locking this so this thread doesn't become an ironic form of itself?

I'm pretty intrigued by how the response to this will be.

I admit I'm guilty of some of this and am way too easily provoked, but stuff has gotten extremely out of hand in recent months and as as you stated, the mod team has been much too lax in response.

I'm going to make use of the ignore function and simply not feed any future fodder.

Thanks for this.

P.S. I hope this will also apply to mods - one of whom loves provoking the **** out of me any chance he gets. No boo hoo needed. But it's a fact.
