JUST in case anyone wants to pass this along anywhere, some misrepresentations are being stated.

Note, the only banning that was mentioned was possible thread banning. And that was intended for those who cannot control themselves and just have to insult with every post.

This is what Wilwhite said, verbatim, on Nov 19

For those who haven't picked up on it, we're cracking down on degrading insults. We won't find all of them, but if you throw one into your post, there's a good chance your post (and all the ones citing it) will disappear. And if we're tested we'll probably threadban people, cuz for me at least I get tired of janitorial duty pretty fast.

The thread in question multiple individuals were given plenty of opportunity to stop shitting up the thread. I won't make a political comment but it was pretty clear the views of those who could not contain themselves.

It's pretty bad when it has to be repeated time and again the purpose for something only to have alleged grown adults piss all over it.

Sort of 2 different situations.

In one case, you recall we were trying to keep it statistical, without politics. For whatever reasons, there was a dust up over comments resulting in a thread ban.

In the other, one individual would not stop with the insults, even after being warned. That one took it badly.

All we ask is that people ease up on the degrading insults. Posts may get deleted if they cant police themselves.

There was a dust up because one individual does this routine in many long running threads.

I don't have an opinion personally on the latter really. I find it a little odd its ok to carry on like that in the PF but not elsewhere but I'd bet thats because the PF drives a lot of traffic.

C'mon DG.....you know that you like to mix it up every once in awhile. It gets the blood flowing and even mum likes it when you get a little "Hot Under the Collar" ...... c'mon, admit it. Enjoy it now. Someday you'll be like me and the blood will forget where it's supposed to go. Then you'll really get pissed off in here.

I never once denied I like to mix it up. As I clearly said it's just a way to blow off steam. I sure as shit don't spend months constantly discussing one board vs the other and I never took any of this stuff personally which is obviously not the case with others.

Just like lies, there are levels of insults.

Yo Mama isnt quite on the same level as you bleeping, bleeping, son of a bleep, hope you die.
