A change of course

Post by mbaxter » Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:57 am

Hello everyone,

Lately, there have been far too many instances of harassment in this community, and we’ve brushed it off or been otherwise quiet about the issue. We can’t let this keep going on any longer.

Starting today we’re going to take a harsher approach to end harassment in this community. We will punish people who make posts designed to hurt others. It’s fine to joke but when you start going out of your way to make another feel bad you have gone too far. This will end now.

On the other side of the coin, we’ve had a major issue with certain users not thinking before posting and creating their own conflicts with one-word comments or even single-smiley comments to serious discussions that just result in anger and frustration that’s starting to manifest itself as harassment. This, too, needs to stop.

This is your only warning.

I would also like to remind users of the report post button on the forums. If you find a post that breaks the rules, report it so that we can deal with it.

Yeah, I agree with this. I know I'm not the best all the time but I've seen people doing much worse in the past.

I knew there was a solution
Because, since you don't know me, there is a great possibility that I'm on an higher intellectuel level then you are on.
