OK so regardless of who you are, whose friend you are or how long you have been here and whether you are a moderator or not - b****ing about other TFSers on the forum is not allowed.

I have done it. We all have done it.

But standards have slipped and we have to bring them back up again. Which means we have to punch ANY public flaming.

If you disagree with another poster be smart. Argue the point not the person behind it.

I fully expect a bollocking or punch if I do it and so should you.

I think some of you will agree, flaming has become quite common here and it was never tolerated before. So us Mods have to stop being lazy f***ers.

Sorry other Mods. I bet you hate me now

I truly hope y'all will be going after those subtle, 'hairline' flamers as well as just the obvious ones. I know they can make it hard if they play their cards right; but because they do, isn't reason to let it slide.
So, if this enforcement applies to them as well, then I'm one happy camper about this decision.

its a grey area isnt it? Rule of thumb is if you attack the poster then its a flame. If you attack what they are saying then that is considered debate.

Some people do not take having their opinion publicly questioned and torn apart very well. However it is within terms of service. If a person is questioned and torn apart then that is a matter for the moderators.

We have to not allow personal opinion get into the matter and look at the facts. Sometimes subtle digs read as entirely innocent posts. The problem is we cannot deal punches for what we "think" is personal. It has to be quite clear.

I would say polite rather than nice. Yeah repeat offenders might face a ban.

The thing is I posted this so that everyone knows it applies to them, and me and tiger and all the other f***ers.

You know, I've never felt enough aggravation here with anyone to tell them that they're a numbnuts.

I think it's because I sort of sub-consciously suspect that the only people that this site is made open too have demonstrated themselves as a bit mental on mainstream sites so there's much understanding, forgiveness and compassion on my end.

I just said to tiger, some of TFS+ seems to have spilled over. I can understand why its confusing.

So rule of thumb is, unlike TFS+ just because someone posts in a thread does not mean you can then start talking about them in a derogatory manner.

I hope this helps to make it clearer.

no worries though, there isn't a set formula that so many punches = automatic ban. If someone is getting close to that case where we think the punches are being blatantly ignored, we usually warn, with something like "cut it out already" or "final warning" exact wording depends on who throws the punch and the incident. So it's a clear choice to do something to warrant a ban.

(that being said I don't include time out bans in that, for when someone is really upset or drunk and needs time to calm down, before they do something worse, but those bans are usually for less than 1 day, Hell, I've had to give myself a time out ban before.)

and old punches do eventually go away, so if there was an incident a year ago, its not going to be held against you, the same way being reprimanded several times in the same thread would.
