Consider this one last moderator warning to this thread about the shameful attitude displayed by many of you on here. These are public forums and everyone has the right to post here. We take the play nice rule very seriously and this attitude does not lend itself to how these forums are intended to be run. If you do not have something nice to say, please refrain from posting it. The site team has had enough of this and will begin issuing strikes for this kind of behavior.
Taking part on the FROG forum should be fun and educational. Of coarse it can't always be because not everyone is nice. When that forum users get upset things can go bad quickly because we are not all great communicators in the written word. I have been beside myself mad because of how I have been talked to in this forum several times but usually find a way to get over it and hopefully haven't left to many folks hating my guts out there.
I agree that this is a public forum and we all have a right to post on all sections of the forum. I think that what gets folks upset are two things.
1: incorrect information passed off as and expert. We all know what they are saying is incorrect but we worry about the new folks that will not and might be dangerous. I guess I need to find a nice way to tell someone they are full of crap.
2: the constant complaining and attempt to slander and stain FR's reputation on the forum. As I read the rules this should not be allowed. I have personally taken much heat both publicly and in PM's that have been hurtful and mean. Why when we are having a nice conversation about a MH owner that had FR come through and do all the repairs on their rig do we have to be nice to some loud mouth person that searches every post so he can complain. Why are comments like "FR is crap aloud" or When a forum member says FR is a great company someone posts "FR is not a great company" said only to make people mad.? I'm sick of it. It's all Over the forum and the admins have done nothing to stop it. That is neither helpful or fair to FR.
Now if someone is frustrated and vents a bit while wanting help I understand and I have done that. I will not set back and ignore those comments. I will continue to catch heat from it and then all the sudden I'm an elitist.
Maybe we need to understand the rules better. Can we just go on trashing FR In every post. Is this allowed? What is the recourse if it's not. If it is maybe I need to find another forum.
I do appreciate the job done by most of the admins. It's a tough job I understand that. I however do not think that the no bashing rule is enforced as it should be.
Thanks for listening and thanks for the good job that you do. Sorry if I'm out of line here but I feel strongly that this forum has been allowed to go down hill lately.
