On my forum it is more of a call based on personality, mannerism and common courtesy, fairness be damned.
It is really simple to remember:
My forum is not a public forum, it is a private forum, essentially my home where well-mannered persons from the public segment are invited to visit as my guests.
In the martial arts, as in life, interaction with one another begins and ends with RESPECT!
I would prefer that the guests use good manners and common courtesy with one another in arguing their points of views. Because of human nature, this is not always possible, and when it happens I encourage the ‘players’ to resolve any differences amongst themselves first.
This forum is not about personal attacks, style attacks, and accreditation attacks.
You do that and several things will happen:
1. You will be banned without explanation and your post deleted.
2.If you are counterattacked, I may decide to let it stand, in which case it is matter of “reaping what you sow”
3. You get personal with any of us, and you will be gone, your posting privileges taken away without explanation.
Don't send me any email or personal messages to discuss your deleted posts, your revoked posting privileges, or to complain. If you do, I will either ignore them or post them on the forum for all to see.
