This is a blanket reminder to all that this is an adult forum and we should behave as adults. That means that you do not insult other members, call them names or generally behave like an asshat.
Unfortunately, the mods and I have had to work rather hard the last week or so editing posts and handing out warnings (and infractions). Don't think for a minute that we don't see (and deal with) what goes on. We may not always take action on EVERY post that you personally find offensive, but if we feel that a warning or an infraction is warranted it is given.
If you have an issue with someone, by all means add them to your ignore list (you'll find that option under your User CP). If you don't want to do that, then I advise not responding to them. If you have a problem with someone else's post and find it offensive please report it. However, if you feel like someone else is being offensive and you stoop to their level then it will likely just earn you a warning or infraction as well. Be the bigger person. Let the mods do their jobs and stop creating more work where it's not needed.
