My tolerance has been stretched.

A sentence from the Ground Rules for this board:

The posting of pornographic images, blatant racism, advertising, or "spam" will not be tolerated, and will be treated as above

A sentence from the forum rules and disclaimer:

If you participate in any forum on the site, you must not:

Defame, abuse, harass or threaten others
Make any bigoted, hateful, or racially offensive statements
Advocate illegal activity or discuss illegal activities with the intent to commit them

I have been very tolerant these past twelve months and quite liberal in allowing members to post virtually as they wish. I have not intervened much at all, nor edited much, nor deleted much. However, as we appear to be in the midst of a rebellious phase of rule breaking and harassment of certain members, from now on I will be moderating this message board in a far more stricter fashion. Do not be surprised to see whole posts deleted, or be on the receiving end of the first of your official warnings.

I am getting extremely tired of seeing bigoted posts with racial slants, personal flaming and abuse, and the type of harassment that I thought we'd seen the last of a long time ago.

At times it is difficult to believe that we are all adults, when some of us behave like delinquent juveniles.

Calling a Sanddancer a Geordie, is the worst racist verbal attack ever. Don't ever call me a Geordie :evil:

Has something triggered this in the last few days, because I didn't particularly notice anything worse than the normal drivel.

That's the trouble with long running drivel, we tend not to notice until it's too late.

Any one would do a better job than Curly,my personnal choice would be Ralph but I do not know if he would be interested. Who apart from yourself do you think would be capable of doing the job in a fair way.

I would never consider myself for that job, I'm biased, and besides I wouldn't be able to stir it up in such
a position, it would take all of the fun out of it.

I believe the problem lies with the fact that Curly has other projects on the internet which he rates
more important than The Corner Shop, consequently the shop isn't monitored as thoroughly by him
as it used to be.
