OK, you've actually respected the rules. Admittedly, there is still flaming going on, but I'll say you guys have markedly improved without necessarily a great deal of help.
However, even this threads smells of the singed clothing of the poor recipients on the end of someone's Molotov cocktail.
Can we get some suggestions from you guys about how to improve this? Constructive suggestions guys, let's be grown-ups in at least this thread
Before Abaraxas or someone else says it, no! No banning
Firstly; People who make threads need to be consciencous about where they put those threads. Th "CD - too intellectual for the haters thread" was in the wrong section. Myself and others made a point of mentioning it, and it eventually got moved to the flamers thread, which was a waste of a thread that other users might have appreicated if it had been in the right section originally. If it had been in the right thread in the first place there would have been no problem, so that's something that us users can do straight away. It must also be noted that when users point out that a thread is in the wrong section, they are at perfect liberty to do that without getting flamed or moaned at.
Secondly; Excessive reporting of users needs to stop. The Mods, such as yourself and MrB (the two most active ones) are more than capable of seeing what's going on. Furthermore, when people inevitably are reported, as some members I doubt will never stop reporting people, there must definately NOT be any posts by the reporter boasting about it, or hinting towards it. That is just inviting flames, and is in effect, a flame in itself.
Finaly; Emoticons such as
should be considered flaming, if used for that purpose, just like calling someone a retard would be considered flaming. Let's keep this section clean, people.
