There will be ZERO tolerance for any member to member disrespect, namecalling, etc in this section of the forum. It is in the forum rules. For example, these were taken directly from the forum rules:
-Please keep your language clean and decent. This include personal inflammatory language as well as obscenities. And the profanity definition includes acronyms and abbreviations of profanity.
-Always be respectful of other users, the system, and the moderators. We put the system online in good faith, please use it in good faith.
-This forum system is not a venue for personal or private vendetta’s. Keep your personal business as just that – personal. This forum is not a venue for the resolution of personal disputes with members or companies. There are “gray areas” and at times can be held under strict guidelines.
-Flaming: flaming or personal attacks are not tolerated. Should anyone use inappropriate language, start a personal attack, or engage in hate speech, they can be barred from all further discussions. Easily said, challenge an opinion but don’t attack the person.
-You are responsible for your own posts and agree not to hold Duck Hunting Chat or www.duckhuntingchat.com liable for any messages posted.
Plain and simple. Any violators of these rules will be dealt with and i will gladly ask for an immediate 1 week suspension from the forums. Keep it clean and decent. If you can't abide by these rules, then move on. If you have a problem with a forum member, take it to the PM's and do not go at it in a public thread. None of this is up for discussion since we all checked that box when we joined saying that we reviewed the forum rules.
If you disagree with the way HGWT and i are moderating this section, then please take it up with one of the super mods or admin and have us replaced. The forum has come a long way since i started coming here to the VA section well over a year ago. Let's keep it that way.
Thanks for your time.
