Default Getting personal

It's time to make a note on personal conduct. Things occasionally get heated and personal in here, and we're supposed to avoid that. I'm not talking about all-out attacks, I'm more talking about demeaning comments and the like.

The moderators are going to keep an eye for and try to cap any such behaviour.

We're after debate, not confrontation. Thanks for your cooperation.

In my opinion, I think we also need to take a look at "thread stalking" or the appearance of it.

Healthy debate is good, but if it starts to look like certain members just seem to watch for a certain other member's posts so they can tear them apart, that needs to stop, too.

First infraction issued. Took less than forty-eight hours. Impressive.

While I was on holiday, we ended up with a ban.

Just what constitutes an infraction? I'm just curious....

Infractions can be issued for any type of rules violation, although here they're generally reserved for instances of personal attacks.

They're rarely given for a first-time offense. By the time infractions are issued, the member will have received at least one or two verbal warnings from the moderators.

Technically, the board software is set up so that 5 infraction points puts a member on moderated status (their posts are viewed by a mod before posting publicly), and ten points means a ban. In reality, if someone has say, 7 or 8 points, we're usually so sick of dealing with their crap at that point that we apply a ban.

In many cases, a member will be issued one infraction at some point, and never receive another one. Sometimes a member just needs an official wake-up call, and infractions serve that purpose.

Got it that makes sense thanks. So do the infractions stay forever or do they roll off eventually?

We reserve the right to issue temporary or permanent infraction points. Depends on the offence and circumstances.
