Rule 4: No posts that attack, insult, "flame", defame, or abuse members or non-members. Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member. Decisions about
health and well-being are highly personal, individual choices. "Flaming" and insults, however, will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree. This applies to both the forums and chat.
Ok, guys , this stuff ends now. There is absolutely no reason that member of this Forum should be treated the way the original poster has been in this and some other threads. This whole deal is now a pack of dogs mentality, nipping at the heels of people. Whether you like a person or not, whether you agree or disagree with their choices, whether you just plain don't like the poster, there is never a reason to violate Rule 4. I don't care if you've been here 5 years or 5 days, there's no place for it here. If you can't abide by the rules and treat others with respect, not belittling, harassing, or attempting to drag others into the fray, then give yourself a timeout and sit back awhile until you can control your baser impulses. This applies to a bunch of you guys. The original poster DOES have a right to post, express opinions, and participate in discussion on this forum. It is the moderators job to take care of any issues rising from that participation, not for the membership to take it upon their selves to 'straighten' someone out. Get mad? fine, get control of yourselves or get out for a while. There's not gonna be any more of this nipping at the heels and gang mentaility. If I hurt your feelings, though, but this just pisses me off to think that we can so easily forget what we are here for, just because someone new doesn't fit our mold. Yes, he has made mistakes, yes, he has been consulted with by the moderators and yes, he is not now doing anything that would justify this lynch mob mentality. Also, post counts aren't a reason to belittle people. If any moderating is needed or if anyone has concerns, email us, and leave the policing to us, ok? Continue harassing of anyone on this Forum will be justification for recommending to the owner for disciplinary action, including banning. If you can't leave things alone, then use the Ignore function or practice some self discipline. Any further discussion with us mods on this will be by email, there will be no explaining your sides here or elsewhere in threads.
So much for Kumbaya. To the other members not participating in this thread, I apologize to you that you had to witness this. Tony and I have been out of the loop and am just getting caught up and trying to get back in the groove. We will attempt to clean this mess up shortly, after Peter has a chance for review. Geez, take a few days off......
