The Same People...
    #1423842 - 04/02/03 07:08 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Everytime I step into the political forum the same people feel the need to insult those who do not agree with them. To be fair everybody in there has probably been guilty of this on more than one occasion. But there are those who seem to make it thier mission in that forum to insult and belittle without contributing much to the discussions at hand. We've banned people for less, and these folks seem to have free reign. I've noticed the mods cracking down in the past day or two, but I will be curious to see, A) how long this lasts, and B) the effect it really has. Why are these people still around?

There is no need to name names. If you spend some time either reading or posting in the forum you will see for yourself. As I said, it seems the mods have taken some action here in the past few days. It just gets really old, especially when the insults begin to take over or disrupt the thread.

Have you PMed both mods for the forum? Cause they are best suited to deal with your concerns.

If you feel their responce or inaction is a problem then goto the admins to ask them for help.

I know what you mean, but in that forum insults are a kind of sport between certain regulars, I find it entertaining (sorry) and would hate to see any of those people banned, even the ones I hate :smile:. But I see your side of it, I rarely post in that forum. I try not to let opinions bother me but I don't look forward to getting ripped a new a-hole either.
