For those individuals who have been on the receiving end of a post in which a rude or insulting comment was personally directed at them, or have been subjected to any type of harassment, threat or intimidation designed to prevent them from full participation in these forums, I urge you to avail yourself of the small red triangle above a member's name and promptly report such incidents as an offensive post and explain your rationale for doing so. There is absolutely no reason why obnoxious behavior -- regardless of whether the source is from a teenager or adult -- should be tolerated by anyone. This will include such things as being referred to as stupid, moronic, clueless or a jerk, plus those who denigrate others because they are card carrying members of the highly intolerant (but intellectually superior, or so they think) spelling and punctuation goon squads. And it is also time to serve notice on all offenders that lacing into somebody cannot be forgiven by placing a totally meaningless smiley face after a hurtful remark. One final thing: I urge all responsible moderators to take swift and aggressive action against those who flagrantly and/or repeatedly violate stated forum rules. If that means a suspension of posting privileges for two weeks as an initial reminder or a permanent ban when warranted, so be it. Any computer forum that makes lame excuses for abysmal conduct is a forum that I will not have a long-term relationship with. The many decent people who regularly visit here no longer need to be at the mercy of electronic bullies. Enough is enough! If you are incapable of posting with decency, redirect your unwelcome sarcasm to spouses and family members ... I am sure they will love you and be apologists for you no matter what transpires..
