I'm getting fed up with the discussion style of a few members. Petty point scoring, bickering and childish tit-for-tats have no place here. It's only a handful of members, but it brings the whole forum down. Most of these pathetic little handbag arguments happen on topics that have nothing to do with motorhomes and are about politics and religion etc.

So, from today, in any off topic discussion I see, even if it is serious and heated, where a poster does not keep a sense of friendly humour, civility and respect throughout the discussions. Then they will have the ability to post into the off topic sections removed. Thanks.

Only noticed it on very few occasions and it is a shame you have had to post this warning.
Have to say, good move on your part, keep the forum a "Fun" place.
Unless you were talking about me! :)

Funnily enough I was in a chat with some other funsters about this very subject just the other day. Was hoping it was just a "spike" and things would return to normal soon.

Keep calm and carry on etc. :)

I think there might be a few wondering who this is aimed at

I was thinking the other day about what some find funny others find rude and how we could overcome it

We could maybe do with a universal smilie that we use at the end of a post when the content is intended to be light hearted or tongue in cheek, then all readers would know the emphasis of the comment

Maybe, if a post receives say three 'reports' it should then get an amber warning triangle against the post, if Jim feels it is really bad it should get a red triangle, this way we know the content that is offending

I have in the last week not 'bothered' to reply to a good few threads for fear of potential battle, a difference of opinion is inevitable surely on an open forum

edit - I hope this isn't seen as bickering

The facility to ignore specific people is brilliant. It even hides entire threads started by the "ignored" person. I have only one on my list but it has been great for my blood pressure! And I don't miss much as I come on here to discuss travel and motorhoming and my "ignored" doesn't post often about those.

I don't miss what I can't see as Donald Rumsfeld might have said. :)

I have never 'ignored' anyone on any forum/blog but I have to admit what you say seems to have merit DBk especially as I am often stretched to respect Rule 1 given some of the heavily baited and deliberately loony posts.
