In recent days I have had to warn some posters about the nature of their messages. Please refer to the forum guidelines...In particular the entry about offensive language.
This is a very liberal forum...rarely do we intervene...all posters are allowed to express views, however there are limits and those that post derogatory or offensive messages will be warned and in extreme cases banned.
Trash talk is encouraged...it makes the forum fun...It is all in the spirit of sportsmanship...but personal attacks and comments that are clearly made to be demeaning are not...I think it is safe to say that most people know when they are about to cross the line...if unsure ask yourself the question â€œWould make the same statement to a co-worker?â€?
If you are having a debate and it is clear that you are loosing or that no one will win...agree to disagree or bow out gracefully...do not resort to hurling insults. It diminishes the value of this forum as a place for debate and discussion.
We have MODS to help keep things on the level but this forum is on the honour system...we are, for the most part, all adults and this forum asks that you self monitor and filter yourself.
