There has been a lot of bad blood in the forums over the last couple months. Some people have proven themselves childish/annoying/plain stupid, and a lot more people have taken to using them as their personal ego punching bags. I speak for an awful lot of the mods and probably a fair number of members when I say we are sick of it. We expect decent community interaction, and we're going to be kicking people out until we get it.
Everyone deserves a fair shake. No doubt some have already had theirs and wasted it, but that is still no excuse to harass their every movement on the forum. Respect what posts you can respect, and keep your thoughts on the rest to yourself. Everyone says stupid shit on occasion, and we all deserve, nay, we all have the right to have that stupid shit ridiculed by our peers. But the problem we have here is people making fun of people, not what people are saying. It's old, it's not funny, it's mean. That means spamming pictures of people, harassing them for reasons completely unrelated to the thread, and the general circle jerk of bullying a few members for kicks. I mean after all, if they're as dumb as many claim then what exactly is the thrill of beating up on such a person? If they're trolling then why are you giving them what they want?
This is not an invitation to troll or continue exaggerated ignorance for the sake of attention whoring the forums. You will be put out on your ass just as quickly.
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
