The following statement appeared this morning on a thread that is now closed.
inventor...I'm recommending that you be banned from this forum.
We have a mechanism for reporting posts.
Is it appropriate for one member to call for the banning of another member on the public board? Is this a can of worms we really want to open?
I think you have a valid point. This can only bring the nonsense that has pushed so many away from other sites to
. I don't see anything productive to posts like these. We can all probably think of at least one member here that we could live without, but to start the war of this type will only denigrate this site. I do have a question though, if a member sends PMs that are beyond mature or civil, can those be reported as well? My question does not refer to any specific PMs, but we all know that the PM system can be abusive when used by people with ill intentions. I know we can block, but when certain members PM hateful, insulting rubbish, there has to be something more than to just block them. Banning them comes to mind.
Abusing any of the systems of
, including the PM system, is against the Rules
and is definitely grounds for immediate disciplinary action.
žD. Personal Correspondence and Information
I. Sending harassing correspondence of any sort to any member is prohibited. This includes personal messages, email, etc.
II. Posting personal message exchanges without consent from all parties involved is prohibited. This applies to correspondence between other members AND correspondence between staff.
III. Posting email addresses, postal addresses, telephone numbers, or any other sort of identifiable personal information, yours or otherwise, is prohibited. This is for your protection and ours.
On the subject specifically raised here, UJ covers it nicely... Expressing an opinion equivalent to "Go away!" is not healthy for reasoned debate.
