I may have in the past been accused of liking this board to be a bit too cosy, and I probably will again after this post.

This is getting fucking stupid.

The vast majority of people who post to these boards know each other for a good while now. Disagreements will often happen, we realise that, which is why we have B+M. while we do not want everything to be "nicey nicey" we would hope that people will still remember that our number 1 rule "Don't be a twat" still applies regardless of the forum.



The behaviour of some posters recently has been over the line, we have warned people and we trust that such behaviour won't happen again.


that said, there is a certain degree of petty, snidey, bullshit creeping into threads and other avenues from a number of people and if allowed to continue may very well turn our boards into something that will rapidly become a place that people won't want to come back to.

what has been said has been said, but I would hope that people would be grown up enough to sort it out, either on the boards, or by email like civilised adults without the Admins and the Mods having to sort it out for them.

We don't want to start banning folk (temporarily or permanently), so please don't force our hand on this issue.

errrr . . . prob quite poor in the circs. Sorry if inappropriate . . . Moving along >>>>


Iíve missed out on most of this food fight (apart from having unearthed the erstwhile little known ĎFriends of Paulí chat room group), but I do find it interesting that thereís more in-fighting here than on boards 10, maybe 50, times the size. I mean Ďpound-for-poundí this is way out there.

Perhaps itís more akin with a kind of family dynamic, that sort of thing but with an Internet twist. Maybe the Modding is more relaxed, maybe the group is unusually good at self-policing . . .

Anyway, Iíd suggest the psychology and group dynamic is pretty different to elsewhere in Message-board Land, elsewhere Iíve been, anyway.

Any thoughts on why, or perhaps itís not ?

Please explain this. This is the second time I've seen you say it. I haven't even been in Chat for about 3 months.
Also, I would like to reiterate my point I made in the Hospital thread about driveby bullshit in B&M. If you haven't got anything to contribute to an argument, we don't need the same clever dicks posting zero content posts to pad their counts. IMO.

ok, none of the 'recent shit' bothered me particularly. I think some people are a little oversensitive about some things which I couldn't care less about but hey, that's life! We've already discussed my feelings about whether this is 'real life' or not...

I don't even mind being given an insulting and demeaning avatar cos, after all, it's a hilarious joke!

What you mods do about it is also, I've realised/decided/whatever, your business (as rule 3 makes clear)

so, in summary, unfussed about covers it.

edit: insert avatar crap

It was asked in one of the locked threads whether we could find 10 NADSers who mutually like each other. I'm certain we could easily find double or even triple that number. Hell, I've had way more than 10 at my house!

These arguments will blow over without a trace of their existence left behind, I reckon.

(Still - 'chatroom friends of Paul?' eh?)

To lighten the mood, the ear worm of the day is the Black Eyed Peas song "My Humps" and the key phrase is:

Facts:

1) Fergie looks like she used to be a man.

2) This is funny: user posted image

3) And seriously, now... I'm concerned (and I'll air that concern here rather than in the admin's secret garden) that people now will be concerned about what they post in Bitch and Moan, which is the forum for bitching and / or moaning. Two seperate threads chock full of bitching and moaning have been locked because it got a bit pissy, but if B&M isn't the forum for it, where is?

Peeeeeeeeeete, I locked the thread I locked as I felt that we didn't need several powderkegs ready to blow up on the same issue.

I didn't lock the threads because they contained bitching and moaning, I locked them to try and find a constructive way to resolve the crap that was happening and that the issues in that thread were being dealt with (to death) elsewhere.


It's not often I lock threads, but absolutely nothing was to be gained from leaving that particular thread open.


If we were to start deleting those type of thread, then you might have a point.

Seriously, what the fuck is the point. All arguments between posters involved in last weeks carcrash have been resolved (or have been where I'm coming from). This shit is simply trolling/lawn chair wind up/drive bying.

I'm not so convinced that no trace will be left behind. Some of what has been said from person A to person B has to colour person B's perception of person A. I know that things that people have said here in the past have led to me forming very negative opinions of them, which certainly don't just disappear. Why would they? I don't come to the screen each time afresh with a clean slate.

I don't really think it's anyones job. This is a forum. It has rules. The job of mods and admins is to keep the forum going and apply the rules. That's it, IMO.

I don't have any problem with the threads being locked on the basis that they'd been done to death - it's just the "find a constructive way to resolve..." stuff that I mildly object to.

While you're mildly objecting, feel free to mildly answer my question about who would benefit from an excessively nasty thread being left open.


I was trying to stop people who otherwise aren't twats from being twats, as per rule 1, "don't be a twat".

Nobody has to benefit - I thought that was clear from my post.

If you're saying that you were closing the thread in order to enforce the "don't be a twat rule", that's fine by me. It's all this constructive resolution stuff I have a problem with.
