Thread Name: Posting Policy / No Anonymous Guests
Subject: Posting Policy
In general, we've had to crack down on aggressive posting, from members and Guests alike. The Margaret Thatcher dementia thread is a good example of what shouldn't be happening here. The thread was closed and I removed the worst of the personal attacks, but removing them all would have made the discussion completely nonsensical.
And despite what our trolls contend, it isn't the issues that get threads closed - it's the personal attacks. When you go attacking individual posters, we have to take action.
If you have reason to complain about a personal attack or an individual who is causing a problem, don't start a thread about it. Contact me by personal message or e-mail, and give me the following specific information I will say that our complainers often don't find satisfaction when they contact me. Oftentimes, when a person is the target of an attack, that person attacked first. Around here, we seem to have numberous instances of pots calling kettles black.
And our policy continues, of prohibiting public forum discussion of Mudcat editing policy. If you have comments or suggestions or questions, contact me, or Big Mick, directly.
