Abuse on these forums
Mar 22nd, 2012 at 10:51am
 
All some posters can do is throw personal abuse and resort to petty insults to try and drag the debate into the gutter where they have no problem wallowing in the muck.....I will not respond to personal attacks in future and hope others will not respond to these individuals and feed their pathetic ego's.....There is a reason these people resort to abuse and are mainly from the right side of politics.....Do not feed the trolls!!!

I have already ignored a couple of comments today and have been using the Billings method of rebutal for a while with a couple of the more conservative abusers.

Funny that people you disagree with (and call names) should "abuse" you.

Do not know who you are or where you get your opinion.....I have retaliated in the past but will refrain in future.....If you lower yourself to the standards of other posters who resort to personal attacks you will also be suitably ignored.....OK!!!

Thanks Phil that is the appropriate way to respond. You can also send a PM to myself or one of the other mods with a link and quote so we can take further action if necessary.

You are correct FD.....The Mods cannot do their job if they are not alerted to the abuse.....However most abuse is quite tame like calling posters stupid and nice people which isn't worth the trouble......What level of abuse would warrant action???

Huh Huh Huh

It's up to you. I have taken action over the use of the term nice person before.

I will not retaliate in future.....I have made my point and am not proud of the fact I lowered myself to the standards set by other posters.....I will refrain from this behaviour in future and ignore or report any serious abuse.....OK!!!

Phil what you have called me doesn't worry me. It's a rough and tumble world out there and I have been called many things as  I am sure you have.

I couldn't give a bugger what people call me. Never have and never will.

It's the 'c' word that I find extremely offensive and that has been used on here twice recently, once by Gist and again by smithy. I didn't see you complain about that.

You could try not being so pompous. You remind me of  a school teacher I once had.

You are probably a nice bloke but maybe take life and politics to seriously.
