How to deal with Flaming/Spaming post! The only way... - Page 2

i think we should have a debate thread put on, for debates on sensative issues, redleg has the honors of banning anyone that are racially bashing

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean??

We have a lot of debate threads in here already, and raciall bashing/flaming will most certainly lead to banning.

The "Hall of Shame" have now been opened at the bottom of the forum.

All permanently locked threads will from now on be moved down there, so you can go down there to read and learn what's not accepted behavior in here.

My thought on the Matter

I think the line is extremely obvious. If you get offended and start hurling insults, ethnic/national slurs or any nonsensical psychobabble in retaliation, you are now FLAMING. If somebody has dropped into such a mode, there is no longer any possibility of rational discussion because angry people are can't be reasoned with.

Now we have seen a number of instant reactions that make no sense at all. "Yeah, well Afganistanis are all sexists!" or somesuch nonsense, generally completely unrelated to the topic. Those are Spam in my eyes.

I'll post it here as well, just to make sure everyone sees it:

I would like all of you to pay very special attention to this new forum specific rule before you continue to post in this part of the forums:

I'm getting pretty tired of ruined serious threads now, and flaming/name calling/country bashing etc. in the military discussions will lead to an immediate temp ban, without any warning!

Please PM me or post here if you have any better/other suggestions or questions, I'm open to all suggestions that can make this a better (and more mature) forum for all of us.

Now please let's continue on topic in the remaining open threads.

Thanks for your understanding..

That is not true at all. I may not be a administrator here but since I am on another site I know how things work around a forum. Be patient and give the some time to work on the problem if there now is a problem. They do everything that they can so we can enjoy this forum. So please, do not think that they do not care for trust me, they do. I know, I've been on this forum for a pretty long time.. 2 years to be exact. (Even though I had another account at first but forgot my password and had to make a new one.)

So completely ignored? No.
You have to be patient? Yes.

Rome wasn't built in one day and surely not MilForum either.
