Enough!

Okay, consider this the first warning, you will not receive a second. At ants we will no longer tolerate personal attacks, threats or baiting people into responding unkindly. Lively debate is great but lets act like adults even if some of us are not even 18. If you cannot abide by these simple rules I suggest you find another forum for your BS because Ants is not the place for you.

    Does this include the NHL thread?

    Good question and the answer is both yes and no. When it comes to lighthearted back and forth between users who often disagree in areas that span back ages we have no issue. However, for sports when it is plain to the staff that a person is intentionally trolling, insulting others, making threats or clearly trying to generate a reaction from another user that is not cool and the person doing it is getting the boot. For example, using the NHL thread:

    If someone says "Sydney Crosby is overated, unless and not deserving of the C" is fine. Yeah, anyone with half a brain knows that is not true but I doubt it will result in all that much backlash.

    However, if they say "I wish Sydney Crosby was in my town so I could snap his neck and then piss on his grave" it is not OK and the user will be banned for a 2 week minimum.

    Make sense - differentiating between good natured rivalry with occasional stupid comments are vastly different than trolling, baiting, attacking opinions or making threats.

    If I can't insult people in the NHL thread, I don't know what I'm doing here.

    Re: Enough!

    Now what's the protocol for just stating a fact about another member's favorite team and them not being able to handle it so they take it as an insult and respond as such?

    I think the tailgate as a whole should be exempt. There's all sorts of insults but I don't think anyone gets real upset and cries about it.

    are you spelling his name wrong on purpose just to troll me?

    Thinking about sigging this

    And yeah, since several of the nhl people have chimed in, I'm gonna have to ask that thread gets a pass as we all understand there is no actual maliciousness behind anything. But we do like to chirp

    Tailgate banter is its own thing and I think mods understand that

    Yes, we do but occasionally it can get out of hand so this a warning for that as well.

    All that stated I am closing this one now.
