Good Sportsmanship - EVERYBODY READ

Topic: Good Sportsmanship - EVERYBODY READ

Following the United States Presidential election, we have many members who are quite excited about the results, and many others who are not. I would like you all to, on the one hand, avoid "gloating" or trying to rub the opposition's collective face in President Bush's re-election, and on the other to avoid making posts/threads insulting or otherwise antagonizing those who support President Bush. You are going to notice an increase in the strictness of the moderation on the forum for the next week or so as a consequence of the heated emotions that were generated by this race and our refusal to allow them to transfer to these boards. Once the insults start, it is nearly impossible for mature and responsible discussions to survive.

Thank you.

I agree..

I'm getting pretty fed up by "cleaning" up in election, and I-hate-Kerry/Bush off-topic and flaming posts now.

We will have a very low tolerance for posts like that in the near future, until things (hopefully) calms down a bit again.

Thank you very much for your understanding.
