    Angry Be civil or be banned

    The policy remains today as it has been since the board was set up. The policy is quite basic:

    Be civil or be banned.

    No, I am not here to write detailed "rules" about what's civil and what's not.

    You all have the ability to report a post. If someone is abusing this resource, please do report the post and let us deal with it. Remember this please.

    Guy "A" is thowing mud. Guy "B" gets into the gutter and decides to throw mud too. In the end, both are covered with mud and it matters not a whole lot who started it. If you're going to engage in non-civil treatment of others on RTF, you're looking at getting banned.

    Yes, it is possible to use a political board respectfully and still debate.

    Have fun. Enjoy RTF. Life's too short to get bent out of shape over internet arguments.

    RTF is here, as always to provide value to the global retriever community.

    In 2010, Chris (who then owned RTF) made the above post a STICKY. Lately it appears that some members posting in POTUS have either forgotten what they read in that STICKY or have chosen to ignore it.

    If you cannot post your opinion on matters being discussed as an ADULT, please refrain from joining in on the discussion!! Name calling, personal insults, and threats WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!

    Not everyone is going to agree with your opinions.

    Please don't force ADMIN or Moderators to take action against your account by banning you. If you think this post is being directed to you, you may be right!

    Seems that a couple of users need to be reminded to be CIVIL. Seems that there have been an increase in reported posts lately. Maybe it's time some go out and train, rather than throw insults around on POTUS.

    Show your intelligence by debating without personal attacks, name calling and insults.
