Please note the ****** is a swear word, not just they called them a muppet or something.

Ban them for 24 hours for a first infraction and if it continues extend the ban.

What's a fair punishment for someone insulting another member?



The problem with this is that insults are subjective. Something that is insulting to one person may not necessarily be insulting to another, and doesnt need to contain profanity.

I think what you're getting at is someone abusing another user using profanity, but the problem with that is what about someone who posts profanity and doesnt quote anyone? justs posts in mid conversation with several people. That being the case then there are already rules that govern that and punishment structures in place.

The main problem with this is that it is far from consistent, some mods will action a report, whereas other will just plainly ignore it, despite it being a blatant breaking of the rules. This here lies the issue. A distinct lack of consistency when someone reports someone else.

Its simple. I've been at the wrong end of it so what I'm saying is based on fact as well as perception from what has been said on other posts. I got 2 infractions and a 3 day suspension for apparently "inciting negative remarks" in the one post that was posted in MISC (NONSENSE)! and it didnt contain any profanity or abuse. Yet you will see many posts in all sections where users are inciting, abusive and blatantly profane...and when you report it nothing gets done.

Only problem I see is a lack of consistency. Nothing more, nothing less.

Well, this imaginary situation (I don't think I'm allowed to talk about the real situation), is when one member quoted another and called them a ****** (swear word). The post was removed but no suspension given.

IMO if someone does that (especially in the deals section rather than the less serious misc) then they deserve to be removed from the site for a time, just an infraction isn't good enough.

The insult wasn't directed towards me btw.

i think buying them a ticket to a tottenham hotspur match would suffice.

Is that some kind of low level sound punishment? :whistling:
