    That's a good thing Chrisy, don't take it personal. On the other hand, i like AG so much cause he is like me, what i call a realist...
    very true.

    At least AmazinglyGraceless' name gives unsuspecting posters a heads up.

    He used to hurt my feelings a bit but i got over it he's been helpful and i've learned not to take the internets so personal.

    He used hurt my feelings as well. I won't go into it again. It still hurts.

    But seriously, Chrisy, AG is actually a very nice guy. I am starting to feel like a cheerleader.

    At any rate, I suppose we can get back on track with the AG bashing now.
    Your joking, right?

    No one thinks its here to bash AG. Most of use are friends and get along with AG being as he is so laid back, its easy to have a little fun...

    MizzCourt was doing nothing but trying to catch up. She clearly was off for a little and missed some of the stuff that happened.

    No need to jump to conclusions ...

    Indeed I am Reed. Hence, the "winky" smilie and "cheerleader" comment. In fact, I think a moratorium should be placed on "AG bashing" for ten years at least. I am not even kidding right now.

    CBK, your cheering outfit looks cute, keep it on! Na, i don't judge anyone solely based on postings! It was just one incident when i was a noob.

    i think we got into a fight over something stupid. i tried to make up by posting in the last letter song thread with him. Was that too subtle?

    i do think he's a cool guy (sorry that i'm talking about you like you're not in the virtual room, AG).

    There has to be compromise with large, diverse groups. we all have different actions/reactions. Recognizing how we react and trying to understand others helps avoids fight/hurt feelings.

    i know AG says to grow up and maybe not take this so seriously...and i see his point...but some of us are not as tough and that's ok too. as long as we have civility and hopefully respect.

    If I was getting rude, you wouldn't be questioning it.

    No one thinks its here to bash AG. Most of use are friends and get along with AG being as he is so laid back, its easy to have a little fun...

    MizzCourt was doing nothing but trying to catch up. She clearly was off for a little and missed some of the stuff that happened.

    No need to jump to conclusions and certainly no need for the idle threats....

    Someone thought they'd be funny (I hope), and went on an f-bomb rant. Thanks Reed, and to the poster, AMF!

    I'm probably going to get the same rude comments that I am talking about in this post. But seriously why do people have to be so down-right mean about stuff. OK, so there are other posts on a subject.... don't click on the post then. Or someone doesn't know how to do something? Just leave them alone and let someone who is actually going to help them, help them. Its so sad that we are all here united by our addiction to all things Blackberry and we can't even manage to get along.

    This thread came at just the right time.

    We have been aware of the issues developing in the forums. In the past, personal communications with members has been our first choice when dealing with rules issues. The vast majority of the time, our members have responded favorably and our forum has been a happy and friendly community.

    More recently, we have encountered members that do not respond favorably. You can imagine some of the "colorful" replies we have been getting.

    There are two main issues. First, are the dedicated internet trolls that have discovered a new feeding ground here. They know the rules and they stay as close to the line as they dare. Catching them in a rules violation is tough, but occasionally they will slip up. When they do, we are entitled to respond with the tools in our kit.

    Second, rudeness to our members. That is a lot tougher to deal with, it can range from subtle through extreme.

    Our preferred approach, lead by example. The vast majority are productive members that appreciate our efforts. Unfortunatly, even the most productive member can have an off moment while posting and appear rude in response. We have just seen that take place right here.

    Will we ever eliminate rudeness? Not in my life time, but I will do my best to insure it is contained.

    Thank you all for participating in this discussion. A lot of good feedback has been considered and we are empowered to act on the issue.

    I know we will offend some members, but for every problematic member we deal with, we have the support of 99.6% of the community.

    The point to take away, we want all of our member to feel comfortable posting questions and replies, and we want to treat you all as valued members of the community.

    Hey Guys and Gals,

    Heads up - I might move this into the Off Topic forum later today.

    I moved it to the Site Questions forum, which doesn't get much action, so it's always the latest post in there which is making it tough for me to easily stay on top of other posts.

    Once I move it to off topic though it wont be searchable on the vbulletin search..so you'll have to look for it manually in there (will still be on the all posts version of Today's posts).

    sound ok??

    will leave this for a bit before i move later tonight, so you get a heads up

    much appreciated!
