Default Reminder on Personal Attacks

With the new season in full swing right now, and I have also seen some of it lately, just thought we(the moderators) should just give a little friendly reminder that Personal Attacks are not permissable. These can result in, receiving infractions to bans.

This reminder is being made because a lot of fans from other teams will be joining us over the course of the season. Not only fans from other teams, but also new Steelers fans as well. So, it would help to make them feel welcome to talk football with fellow football fans.

Feel free to talk football, or just about anything as long as they are appropriate for that subject. Debate and argue if you want. Just don't make it an all out verbal fight.

Otherwise carry on and enjoy SteelersFever.

That's one way to combat it, but thought it would be good to at least put a reminder out.

It's not a problem with feeding them. The problem comes in when they keep flaming away for two and three days from multiple usernames.

Is there a way to ban IP addresses?

Default Re: Reminder on Personal Attacks

I've been following a site that has Steeler message boards-- and there's this one person that has written like 6 messages downing our guys that NO one has responded to. It's almost funny! lol I have a feeling they won't be posting many more :P

We've continued to write to other Steelers fans, but we've ingnored him lol

If someone has a "legitimate" issue, that's one thing, but people who are Steeler haters (I call them, anyway) have a tendency to just make things up, or not make sense...and it's hard to respond to that.

I have to add my two cents here. If you want the personal attacks to stop, how about banning the trolls as soon as they start their crap? And I'm sorry, but anyone who comes on a message board for no other reason than to be a troll and rile people up is an idiot, and I have absolutely no problem saying so or calling them on it.

The one big side effect of having a smack board is that morons will use is as a stage for personal attacks on players, other posters, etc.

Some people take football and the internet way too seriously.
