Forum Etiquette - 03.15.2010, 05:13 PM

There has been a general decline in attitude and behavior recently that must stop! I was speaking with Mike the other day and he agrees and has asked mods to become more aggressive in moderating to address the issues below:
  1. Personal attacks. There is no need to trade insults between members. If there is a beef between individuals, take care of it off the forum. Period. If you are the target of an attack, you are more than welcome to PM a moderator and we will see to it that it stops.

  2. Vulgar language. Most of us are adults here, but there are a few younger members. As such, we should keep the language on the forum PG-13 rated at the very most.

  3. Inappropriate content. This forum is intended primarily as a support forum for RC-Monster products and general brushless information. Many of us spend a lot of our time here and consider fellow members friends. So, off-topic (non-R/C related) threads do happen, and that is perfectly fine. However posting or linking to inappropriate content (such as content including items 1 and 2 above) is off-limits.
Let's try to act our age, shall we?

We do try, Brian, but there are those who would tempt us to act the part of third-graders. Sometimes they are successful- not necessarily because we are lowering ourselves to their level, but because we are strong-minded and simply cannot back down when faced with such pompus attitudes. Such people take full advantage of the fact that they are behind the keyboard, and we don't know where they live. If the inverse were true I am sure we would not have to deal with that type of immature behaviour at all, as justice would inevitably take it's own course.

I know that this thread is most likely the result of the posts on a couple threads today. Threads/conversations that I did take part in. In the end I realized that the farther into the conversations I got the more I had sunk to the same level as someone else. On the other hand it really did offend me when someone, a new member here, was calling out long standing members. Offered nothing but rubbish to say and of the several dozen posts made only asked one actual question and posted one decent comment about the answer to that question.

In the end this is my formal apology for my childish behavior of stuping to the level of someone that was acting inappropriate, by acting the same myself.

Best thing to do with annoying parties is to just ignore them. Then they go away, hopefully. Or you could reverse track them and sent a flaming bag of poo to their house. I prefer the first, as it is dangerous to mail poo, and especially flaming poo. Even next day air is too slow. Plus poo is often hard to come across, at least enough for it to be impressive.

So the moral here is to treat everyone as you would be treated, and cut the slower members some slack, cause not everyone knows everything (I am damn close). Lets make this a fun place to be, devoid of flaming bags of poo, and excessive animated smiley icons.

No, good-natured jabs are ok as long as it's kept clean and no one gets mad. There was an issue a little while back that just got out of hand which brought this to a head, but general etiquette was slowly declining.

Did you guys here something?? Did somebody say something?? I guess not. Must have been the breeze, or a wayward fly lost on his way to the XXX video rental.
