Are you feeling bold because it's the internet and whoever you are aiming your shotgun of insults at is a world away? Don't let it catch up to you. Treat others as you would like yourself to be treated. Treat others with the kindness that you treat yours dogs (positive reinforcement, etc). Just be kind... and if you have to think twice about posting something, then do NOT post it.
If a member is bothersome, there's also another button called ''ignore'' not many use.....I would hate for chaz to become the next 'myspace story', because of words taken too far. Yes just simply IGNORE the person, not pick on them for every little thing they say. Let the past be the past, no need to bring the drama to this forum from another forum.
The whole ''banning'' thing, I mean really do we really need to become one of those other forums? Why are so many people coming to chaz then?
No we shouldn't be watched and penalized for every rude remark we make, but PICKING and yes BULLYING others, IMO how that is allowed is beyond me. Not saying mods aren't doing their jobs, Chaz is the most user-friendly forum I've been on,,,but some members do sometimes need to be dare I say it pm or something about conducting themselves. But judging from my thread on the name-calling/insults, doesn't seem that will ever cease.
I just hope I don't have any typos in this post. The things people get picked on for on this forum sometimes is just...wow.
