There's been a lot of discussion between members here lately regarding the attitude in some threads of the Misc forum and it seeping out to other threads.
I have moderated this community very lightly in the past and we will continue to have a relaxed moderation in the future. However, I will not tolerate lack of respect towards other members, whether their views, opinions or actions. I will not tolerate bullying or attempting to get a rise from others in a sustained and purposeful fashion.
If that is what someone is interested in there are thousands of forums out there where they can engage in as much puerile and abusive behaviour as they wish.
This community is here to find deals, but in whatever forms and socialisation that pop-up I expect to see a basic respect for others.
The forum is open to all free speech and critical discussion but at the point it tips over into veiled abusive speech or any form of behavioiur which lacks respect it will be removed. If a member is continually engaging in this behaviour it would be best if they find another outlet for it on the internet.
I'm not interested in discussing the finer points of what crosses the line. Mods will evaluate as they see fit at the time and it will be done with common sense. If someone's actions and conversation are so far over the line that they need everything spelled out in fine point then again it is best that they would find another community.
I don't think this is currently a big issue here. However, I do not want to see any larger trends occurring.
