Personal criticism
Aug 1st, 2012 at 11:39am
 
In case anyone has not yet read the rules for this website, please do so at -
http://www.ozpolitic.com/forum/forum-rules.html

These rules declare that PERSONAL CRITICISM is RULE NUMBER 1 & it is as follows -

Do not post personal criticism of other members.
Do not respond to personal criticism of yourself or other members.

This is the biggest problem on OzPolitic. Too many members are easily baited into off-topic personal exchanges.
If you participate in any kind of flame war you will be suspended, regardless of who started it or who you think ‘deserved it’.

Please ensure that this rule & the others are followed and if you do not, then you should expect the relevant consequences.

Please also be aware that Global Administrators & moderators on this website are in the main volunteering their time, they do not spend 24 hours of each & every day reading each & every post, it simply isn't possible.

Therefore, if there is something relevant to this Personal criticism in  particular or some other issue, then I suggest you send a PM to the Global Administrators or moderator, whom you would like to address the issue, thus raising an alert.

Thank you.

To ALL Members,
It would be helpful if all members contribute in a useful/productive manner & did not abuse/bait other members!

However, should this occur & one of the Moderators deem such behaviour to be inappropriate, then you may face a suspension, so please bear that in mind, before you push that button!

FD & other Mods may or may not agree, But I very much doubt that a categorical set of written rules is possible &/or enforceable, in the real world of these forums.

For a starter, there are different circumstances regarding -
1) The severity of incidents, which may well range from quite minor, to absolutely abhorrent!

2) The frequency of incidents, which could range from the only time a particular member has strayed, to harassing a member at almost every post, to just harassing everyone, every post!

Then there are inherent differences between those making the judgements (the Mods), those who have made the post which is perhaps seen to be affecting others & those who feel they may be being targeted?

As far as Mods are concerned, I doubt any past or present Mod could rightly claim to have been perfect with all of their decisions & non decisions.
That said, Mods are not qualified judges & nor are we paid huge sums, to ensure we spend 24/7 sitting in front of a computer. In fact, Mods are not paid at all, we are generally just trying to assist, so the forum can operate at a reasonable level & members don't go off the rails, too much.

But, that does happen, from time to time people do go off the rails and hopefully between the Forum owner & the mods, we will generally rectify most situations or certainly try to, either by taking some action/s or by providing some advice.   

Whilst this will not answer all possible circumstances that may arise, it may provide some assistance to those wondering why some things happen & why somethings don't and for that reason I will re post this in a permanent sticky.
