Infractions....

Is it just me, or are they way too touchy? I was just looking through them and D_Smalls got an infraction for calling someone a loser. Isn't that a little bit elementary? I can understand not tollerating a lot of useless bickering, but seriously - young kids call each other names. It's why our parents teach us "Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you." I'm not saying let everything go...but harmless name calling is just that - harmless.

You've all been posting on this/other forums long enough to know the difference between flaming and name calling...at least I hope so. People have long felt that some of you "abuse your power," or don't seem to let anything slide at all. Giving people points for saying "loser" is definitely going to look like an abuse of power. After all...isn't this supposed to be a PG-13 forum? Users can't even sign up unless they are 13 or older without parental consent. In my opinion there shouldn't even be a swear filter (while it doesn't bother me) because of this PG-13 idea, so I think "loser" should be the least of your concerns. That is unless your aim is to make this forum rated G. I guess I can't fault you for that.

It wasn't just for calling zpyro a callous loser. It was for them flaming each other in the thread. I think dsmalls infraction and zpyro's were fully justifiable.

there's a couple i've seen that seem a little touchy, but for the most part, they all seem to be asked for, and given fairly

Admittedly I didn't read the thread. I was just going through the forum and saw that he was given a point for calling him a "callous loser." Seemed pretty lame.

well, I deserved my infraction haha. but I get what you're saying.

but infractions are harmless unless you get a bunch..at least I think that's how they work.




I dunno though. Looking down the huge list of infractions it seems like a lot of work for the mods.

I think you should be able to lose an infraction point like once every month.

they do go away every so often, I forgot how often though, it may be a month.

Seriously, it doesn't matter, you don't get any consequences unless you get 5 points.

Didn't know that.

Either I can't read, or they should put that in the announcement.
