    Use of the Reporting System

    More and more lately, very few of our members seem willing to help the staff out by using the reporting system. We're not talking about reporting the petty he-said-she-said sniping; nobody needs to be inundated with that. The staff here at TPF do the best they can to keep posts civil and threads on track. But there have been several occurrences of seriously infractable posts that really disrupt threads and detract from the topic. When a thread is upwards of 150+ posts, we cannot always delve into it and read each and every post. TPF is a group effort and we need your help. Please, if you see a post that is beyond civil discussion, that deteriorates and threatens to ruin a thread, REPORT IT. Mild insults and "snark" are okay, but personal attacks and mean name-calling are not.

    The first thing is we ask that all of you review the rules. Then please be civil and help us to know when things get out of hand; we need that help.

    Together, we can continue to keep TPF an interesting, comfortable place to promote the discussions that our membership enjoys.

    Thank you
    The TPF Staff

    I cannot tell you how distressing it is to see a train-wreck thread think "why did no one report this?" I've spent 4 hours today, dealing with two people on two threads. Dangit, I've got chores to do.

    I don't report minor stuff but did get out of hand the other day and I am sorry. I will try to do better and report before I retort.

    Yeah, we want links to the fun!
    “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”- Voltaire

    Police claim the right to murder, steal, kidnap, hold hostage, assault, damage property all in the name of the state. Civilians cannot act as police do... because it is a crime. Police are trained criminals. ~ hoytmonger

    Humanity's weakest link is with those that delight in the pain and misery of others.

    Just like coolwater, he puts a thread up, he didn't write it and people attack him instead of debating the information.

    I'm still getting used to the atmosphere here myself. Where I come from you should report if someone calls your argument weak. Here, its far more free so I'm still understanding what constitutes a reportable violation outside of the usual spam and socks. I'll re-read all the rules and do my best.

    I have been on other forums where the mods would pay no attention to any reported post, no matter how egregious. That's not the case here.
