Keep it polite

Tuesday, June 7, 2011 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

We try to stay out of the way of topics as much as possible, but for some reason there have been lots of personal attacks floating around here lately.  An open discussion with different opinions and such is always welcome, but once it melts down into one person against another, or others piling on, the discussion will most likely be ended.

Calling someone a profanity as a personal attack is a fast way to be removed regardless of rank or how long you have been here.

This is our community.  Keep it polite!

"Come on, man....can't you see it?  I swear it's there....just near the middle.....it's a hair, I tell you."

 

Other than that, my role on Wincustomize.com is officially "Community Manager" which means it's commonly my foot that miscreants feel being inserted into their behinds.

If anyone feels the need to self-destruct just let me know and I'll polish my steel caps ....

Just yesterday starkers mentioned what a great little corner of the net this is [to a new member]... and he's right, too.

Let's all make sure that's a continuing reality.

I don't know if anyone's noticed, but since making Journeyman, I've gotten the hang of keeping my mouth shut and walking away when I get in a huff.

Thanks for the post ID, personally I think such crass and uncivilized behavior, regardless of rank, or reason.. is classless.

 

Nope

(sometimes there is something to be said for "refreshingly unfiltered" , an earned privilege I'd think)

 

 

to take it marginally out of topic, but still on the crass side...        arguing about the outcome of a competition on the announcement/congtratulations thread was just embarrassing and cringing stuff...   how to take the wind out of someone's sails in one fell swoop...

I noted the 50% leaving thread was locked last night... but now... it has been.. 'removed'.... as was the case in a previous leaving thread of hers...

other threads that get ugly.... get locked... but remain.... looks bad...

kitty's a big girl... she got pushed... she responded... as she would have if it had been face to face.... She had the option to use the Edit button... she didn't.... she stood by her words.....she was pissed off...... these perceived... 'cleansings' on her behalf... don't do her any favours...

sydneysiders....

We're damned if we do and damned if we don't.... but ultimately we are ALL responsible for the maintenance of good conduct and 'keeping it polite'.

When it 'goes wrong' there are only so many ways to deal with the ensuing 'mess', and that's at the discretion of the site's Admins/Moderators.

Ultimately the issues are handled privately [and have been in this instance].

Let's leave it that way...

well......... maybe I shouldnt have said what i said, so I do appologize for it, if natas reads this.

I am sorry,

So... appologies again.

...... in my indulgence in viewing myself with a certain amount of self importance........ are you fuckin' talkin' to me????

Um, in my continuing past-time of viewing myself with a great deal of self importance.... it'd be, you're NOT effin' talking to me, right!

Okay, maybe that's taking it to the extreme, but I never really thought of mounting a personal attack on anyone here, much less perform one.

(and I feel so very, very fortunate that I do NOT know of any bankers, politicians, advertisers or Google employees who are members here)

I mean, I may use the occasional cuss word to express myself in a moment of frustration, elation or surprise, etc... or to set the mood when I'm telling a yarn or something, but I never direct it AT anyone.

(the more I think about it, the more I'm glad professions aren't compulsory in profiles... so that I remain ignorant of bankers...., etc.)

In fact, now I think of it, nobody around here is worthy of a personal attack from me.... even if I had the energy to mount one.

So, if there's anyone out there looking for a personal insult and is having difficulty finding one. well that one's for you.... enjoy, compliments of  tha cap'n.

I tend to rub my hands together and my blood runs a little faster as I get ready for the games ahead.

And oh yeah, I'm smiling.
