What's funny about the gun thread is the offender has done that before and nothing is said. Some members seem to be able to talk trash and get away with it. I'm hitting the report button every chance I get now
Some of that is my fault. I was taught to praise in public and correct in private. Just because the membership does not see the "backroom" discussions on forum rule violations does not mean they do not happen.
PM admonishments; behavior related strikes; and banishment does happen.
Infrequent, yes. We try to influence "bad" behavior but in the end, if a member's misconduct is deliberate and repeated they need to find a forum more to their needs as this one can do without them; no matter how talented or knowledgeable they claim to be.
I assure you there are members who have apologised to me privately for that mess we were forced to endure and assured me their lapse will not happen again. I take them at their word as I hope you take me at mine.
I am sure that LFugate was not the only recipient of an admonishing PM. While baiting is forbidden; raising to take the bait only makes a bad situation worse. Hit that report button and I assure you action will be taken to reign in or remove an out of control member.
