I moved this from the flag debate in the general board. The rules have changed a bit since you left AN. This sort of thing is not allowed. I moved it here rather than deleting it because it the rules are still open for discussion.

I think that a lot of members aren't getting the rules as they are currently expressed. Hopefully this will clear things up:

I can't expect that you respect all other members, however regardless of how you feel about them you must act in a courteous and respectful (or at least neutral) manner towards them. This forum cannot function if members think that once they take a disliking to someone for whatever reason they can respond with personal criticism instead of reasoned rebuttal.

Most importantly, if you feel that someone else has violated any of these rules, that is NOT an excuse for you to do the same. Unless you take the higher ground you are equally to blame.

Perhaps you should enforce your rules.
As it is they are being completely ignored.

Hey freediver, why the 'swearing' filter?   We're all adults aren't we?  What's with banning good old Australian swearing?

It was included with the forum software by default. I have removed a few words from the list. Feel free to suggest more.

The word troll is offensive and thrown around too carelessly.  Maybe you should be more specific and say which person you're referring to.  There don't appear to be any "trolls" on this forum - although you could say there are some dissenters, sounds a bit better.

The only complaints I have made are about racial slurs, personal hate innuendo, gutter talk and ugly photos.  Does anyone disagree with this?  Obviously arguing is part of debate and can't be helped occasionally.

Does anyone really want to be described as a troll?

member run boards
Reply #29 - Mar 18th, 2008 at 3:14pm
 
I suspect everyone is aware of this, but just in case you aren't:

If you disagree with the way a member run board is hosted you are welcome to bring it up with the moderator, however if you don't get your way your only recourse is to stop using the board in question. You are not compelled to use the member run boards even if they are the obvious place for a thread you want to start, based on the topic. While they are convenient 'repositories' for a given topic, they should also be viewed as experiments in moderating styles. If a board is hosted well it should attract participants. If not, people will avoid it.

Do not try to make each moderator conform to uniform 'OzPolitic-wide' values and standards regarding free speech and civility, beyond the basic rules outlined above. The member run boards are intended to foster a diversity of communal experience. Your freedom of speech is not infringed if you can simply repost the same thing elsewhere where it will be equally (or most likely more) prominent.
