I have had about enough of this.

We have light moderation and expect people to behave like adults. If you have a problem with a post - then you need to point out which post you have a problem with. I will only automatically pull people up on posts which break the rules - and I certainly don't have time to be here 24/7 to pay attention to every petty squabble.

Nor for that matter does Admin ban people for minor infringements. Usually when people are banned it is for continual rule breaking. Swearing is not against the rules. Insulting another poster is. So I have edited some of the posts here and will lock the thread.

Call yourself a moderator?


That last comment was out of line, IMO.

She not only calls herself a moderator, she is one, and she is one because she was invited to be one - by me, because I trust (amongst other qualities) her common sense, even-handedness, fairness and practicality, and very appreciated and valued she is too AFAIC.

We do strive to put in the hours casting an eye over the forum to make sure that things are ticking over smoothly and that there are no infractions of the house rules. Even so, with the best will in the world, we do in fact have lives and families away from nglreturns and it's impossible for us to read every single last post ever made by everybody, ever. Exercise some common sense: if something is offensive, report it. Yes, we may well see it in time, but equally, we may not. We can't catch everything, so we rely on forum members doing their bit to ensure a pleasant forum experience by reporting anything to which they take exception.

There is, incidentally, no specific rule on so-called foul language per se. Racist/sexist/homophobic language is absolutely verboten for obvious reasons, as is directly attacking another poster. But other than that, we like to try to treat people as adults and let them act accordingly. Swearing is so much a matter of personal taste and judgement that I suspect any rules on it are just about impossible to frame, let alone enforce. It bothers some people, it doesn't bothers others, whereas it only bothers some people some of the time depending on context.
