Can I still say Geauga County Ohio still has the best Maple syrup in the world.


That depends, not if you are quoting me because I'm Canadian and that would be an insult to me, my igloo and my way of life.

The only way I see solving this is have a Pancake breakfast for TFS and let the voters pick the winner

Some time ago the issue with signatures came up. Tino said that people should handle it like adults and PM and ask the other user to take it down.

If they refuse there is little can be done unless its an outright breach of ToS like a link to porn or calling someone a name.

Some quote signatures are rather baiting and sometimes a bit cruel. Its not against terms of service but it says a lot about the person doing it.

Well, it all seems pretty simple to me, not confusing at all.

1. Keep words polite/civil.

2. No direct name calling at TFS members.

3. No cussing/name calling AT other memebers; even if they are friends.
(As it makes it confusing to others, especially new comers...the rules of the terms of service. And therfore understandable that some would think some are being treated with favoritism, when in fact the are not.

So no name calling, even in a teasing way. Simple as.

Blocking them could have helped with that.



I have nothing against them but their subtle and not so subtle attacks on people. And them being quoted keeps them in the posts.

I wasn't asking for help on the topic, just stating my opinion. Thank you though.

You can, but you would be wrong.

yes, if its namecalling, using cutesy ways of saying bad words is not a way to get around the namecalling rule. It has always been that way.

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


If you disagree with someone don't publically fight why not discuss it in pm so you don't get into trouble?

well yeah, you can...The thing is though..most people who can't stand each other on the boards, aren't very likely to contact one another via PM. It's kind of like having them come to your house. They aren't wanted.

Another problem with that solution is that at times I've seen some members take what was being said in PM to the public forum where they continued to argue in public making people jump in to defend or to offend. So, PMing someone at times is NOT the best solution as it's only as private as the person you're PMing. Get my meaning?

Oh! Had to come back to state that the Maple Syrup is a non debatable issue because Canada has the 'BEST MAPLE SYRUP PERIOD'.
