- Over the last couple of weeks, I've noticed that there is a trend to be very Graphic with our Language, and our Behavior. The Language used here sometimes are borderline, if not Profane. Our behavior, some time Rude to others. Not to mention, the Graphic description with which we expresses ourselves.
Is it too hard to Police ourselves by respecting each other?
CBers, please remember that this is a Family Forum!07-04-08 11:05 AM
- amazinglygracelessRetired ModWell said CrackBlack, and it can't be said enough.
The last month has been a bit odd and I readily
admit I have been part of the rude problem (but
I kept it clean ). I am, however, back to being
the easygoing, hopefully helpful, sometimes funny
member I was.
But yeah, you're right, we need to keep this place
what it was intended to be.07-04-08 11:11 AM
- chaz_cbRetired Forums ModeratorAgreed.
Policing ourselves is great advice, just too bad it needs to be said in the first place.
I know a lot of members won't know what you're referring to, but that could be due to the threads/posts getting deleted before too many members see them.07-04-08 11:17 AM

I'm just saying it doesn't shock me. You have so many different ages and personalities...everyone isn't going to be as well behaved as us. They should be! But they won't.07-04-08 11:41 AM

- I'm guessing jorgeed was using sarcasm to illustrate your point. There are a few ways we can help ourselves: obviously, avoid lowering ourselves in responding to someone who's behaving rudely. Second, the Abuse reporting tool is there for our use. I have noticed the mods respond pretty quickly to delete posts. And at least one member disappeared from the member list after using unusually abusive language. And finally, it never hurts to apologize if we lose our cool and step over the line.
Thanks for your post.

I think for the most part, people here at CB are very helpful and behave responsibly. We need to understand that not everyone shares the same opinions as us. The forums provide a place for us to share those diverse opinions in a constructive manner. It is not a place for personal attacks, or blatant disrespect.07-04-08 12:15 PM

I must point out, that there are many of us who try to keep things in perspective, which I applaud.
In a nutshell. I enjoy visiting the Forum, There are some very wonderful people here on the Forum and would Hate to see it becomes just another Forum.07-04-08 12:30 PM
- Reed McLayRetired ModeratorModerating a public forum has it's challenges.
I believe one of our keys to success is our common bond, we own and use BlackBerrys. For better or worst, that does creates a social filter that shakes out responsible and professional members.
There will be time when trolls appear, members that thrive of creating controversy and pitting members against each other. That is where the site Terms of Service come it. Violations should be referred to the mods.
Nothing messes with a troll like being ignored and vanished.

- anon(153966)DistinguishedI agree with CrackBlack! In the past weeks, we've received more reported post, than ever...
Why can't people not just get along? Rhetorical, of course...
In addition, I urge everyone to keep this thread clean, failing to do so; well, you know what will happen...07-04-08 12:50 PM
