    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    I read the infraction list with corresponding points. To be honest, I was a little nervous, asking myself if I would have gotten any points yet. Not that I am particularly confrontational, but I think I may have had my share of inappropriate jokes and one or two attempts at putting "rowdy" (careful not to name call here ) people in their place - though somewhat humanely, it may have been considered engaging in confrontation.

    I guess I am just wondering how strictly and evenly (applied to all members) the infraction system will work. For example, are the following posts in this thread OK, or are they bordering on "name calling"? Is "name calling" only name calling when directed at a particular individual? Not to get crazy anal (name calling myself here) on everyone, but what about insinuation or well-crafted loop-hole "name calling" or other type of infractions?

    Anyway, on to the examples:

    And is this "sexual innuendo"? No offense to Adam, who we all love...

    Some of us members have more than one personality. So these stats will never be perfect.

    Don't be a playa hata, y'all (did I just name call?). Ya knows I luv ya!!!

    LOL ... none taken ... wasn't intended as "sexual innuendo", but I can see how it could be taken that way because of all of the "guys" being excluded from giving out the spankings ... truth is, I'm fragile and afraid of getting my corporal punishment from big burly "man hands" ... yeah, that's the ticket! ... well hello!

    Funny thing is, between being SO anal (few are as bad as me), having a tendency toward paranoia, and enjoying a proclivity to analyze things to DEATH, I almost asked if when I said, "We all love Adam," I was also guilty of sexual innuendo.

    P.S. Glad there are no infraction points for derailing a thread! Wouldn't that be a killer?

    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    People who complain seem to forget something, all of us are GUEST here and if it wasn’t for the work of the admins and mods this place might not be there and/or might not be running the way it is.

    I see rules has a way to ensure the good functioning of this growing forum not a way to run people o,f and for those who have issue with rules or the way this forum is run they need to look at other forums and realize how good with have it here and how fortunate we are to have BP.net

    Does complaining count as "disrespecting the site"? 50 points. Ouch.

    Now, y'all! Keep it clean.

    Edit: I hope sarcasm isn't added to the infraction list (when not bad advice, that is).

    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    It's sad to see that the mod's and admin's have been forced to reagulate the behavior of adults on this site,though on the other hand if those people would just regulate and monderate themselves then this might not have happned. All in all first and foremost this is a family orinitated site for the education and enjoyment of caring for herps. As the site grows there is bound to be more and more conflict with differning opinions thats all fine and good but kindly think before you post a few seconds pause before typing or rereading your post before submiting it is all it really takes.Shoot I'm likely to be in trouble for being blunt here but as an adult knowing that a growing number of children are using the sight for educational purposes I would be less then responiable if I posted somthing that casued there parents who were walking by the computer to decide this isn't a very good place for their child to learn about herps. Many many people have put a great amout of time and effort in turning this forum into a great place to learn and share information. It would be sad that a few could damage that for the rest of the sight. So only one suggestion that might help maybe make the quarintine room 18+ or set up a place that is age limted nothing aghist our younger members but there is nothing wrong with being young that a few years wont change and sometimes adults just need to be allowed to speak freely. Let's all make this a really easy adjustment and just regulate ourselves and we won't have much to worry about really. Perosnal responisblity is the hardest thing to learn and except but It's what makes you and adult.
