Word up on flaming! WARNING
    #1160891 - 12/22/02 03:49 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Currently we do not have a strict policy on flaming others.  It is our gentle "suggestion", or guideline if you will, to attack ideas and not each other.  We do not want to create a hard rule about flaming but if it becomes necessary we will.  And we will enforce it.

When anyone of you takes it upon themselves to verbally attack another person two things are likely to follow:

1.  You will lose respect from your fellow members, or

2.  Someone else will imitate you.

Neither of these options are good ones.  For the moment I have temporarily locked two threads for flaming.

We all need to take a deep breath and calm down.  If a post is upsetting to you try this:

STAR

Stop!

Think!

Act

Review

Do not be a bad influence on your neighbor and do not let him be one on you.

In the future I would appreciate some pm's from some of the regs in here if they see something that might erupt into a flame war.

We are here to love each other and learn.

If you want to swear at each other and call each other names OTD is the place for you.

Thanks for the ones that kept their heads.

Cheers,  :smile:

Call it what you will.  It's not a threat.  It's a promise.

If you post and read around the Shroomery you will find threads that are stickies and unable to be replied to.  Is that a denial of free speech?  Hardly.  Your idea of free speech is simplistic.  There is no place where completely unlimited free speech exists.  It might be a high ideal that we strive for but it is impossible to have completely unlimited free speech anywhere including the Shroomery.

We are here to love and learn, aren't you?

Oh, and this discussion is over. 

Have a nice day! :smile:
