When's it going to stop. There are too many times now where I 've thought that a thread looks good to read later to find out that the usual suspects have trashed it.

GROW UP

The little slanging matches that get personal are like something taken from the playground. If it is personal then don't spoil this splendid place to digress about RL, E-mail each other.

Some of you try to come across as articulate, educated on threads but actually become very personal to some people. If you can't be constructive in discussion without starting to slag each other off then.

CLEAR OFF

You are not wanted here.

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

I agree entirely. I've seen too many people lately trying to turn this forum into a replica of others out there that do tolerate abuse. Just because it's accepted elsewhere doesn't mean it will be accepted here.

A few people who have high post counts think they're invulnerable but all it will take is John Drake coming in to work and having a bad day for them to be booted along with the newer posters who can't take the hint.

Robust discussion is fine, personal abuse is not.

Edit: one point though, it's a rare thing that we get reported posts. Some people are quite good about it and are happy to hit the button*, other see it as "grassing" and won't do it regardless of how others are ruining threads. I'm having a quiet couple of weeks so have a bit of time to mess around on here during the day, apart from that though, it's a rare day when we moderators read everything, we rely on the forum to self-moderate and hit that "report" button when that doesn't work. As a point of note, I see the original post as part of the forum's self-moderation process.

* bottom left of every post, "! Report"

Edit2: Can't tell my left from my right these days dry.gif Senility creeping in.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Completely agree. The list of threads is starting to look like a bloody spot the ball coupon down the left hand side.

On a couple of occasions on here I've come close to having a pop at somebody after receiving mild abuse but have decided it's better to shake your head and just leave as good a parting shot as you can without stooping to their level.

If any of that is aimed at me in that Richard Owen thread, I'll hold my hand up and offer my apologies. But at the same time the person who started that thread thinks it's ok to call fellow posters tarts and prats.

There's not enough discussion around the actual game on the paddock to keep this forum fresh. Consequently, we still have the same old arguments by the same old people year after year.

As well as Closing/Locking Threads, stronger moderation is required.

EG . Short Term Removal Of Posting Rights.

If they re-offend, just BAN THEM!

Nah, string 'em up. It's the only language they understand.

On other forums the mode view pushing the report button grassing never mind the posters. Rare I see a problem on here, had much worse elsewhere
