Excessive rudeness (New Rule)

The GRF Forum Management team has noticed an increase recently in various posts in different forums that are getting on the side of excessive rudeness. There seems to be an increase as well in the need to have members "bicker" in posts among other members , and then keep it going. Excessive rudeness is not a rule (yet) as we would hope that people on here as Golden owners can be polite and civil. It is fine not to agree with everyone but keep your responses courteous, or say nothing at all.

I am closing this post as well as this, for now, is just a general announcement/warning to members that feel the need to either bicker and/or be rude towards others on here. There have been several incidents by several members of this recently and this is why a general announcement here has been posted. So please, everyone be kind to your fellow GRF members.

Thanks,

New Rule added

The GRF Forum Management team has come up with a new rule to cover the topic of those that are excessively rude or disrespectful in posts to other GRF members. We are sorry that this needed to be added but things in the last few weeks have required us to look into this issue.

As soon as Yung can add it to the FAQ section under Conduct it will be there as well as now listed in the Thread about rules in this Wishlist, Suggestions, Feature requests & Messages From/To Admin Forum.

https://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...ard-rules.html


Here is the new Rule;

Quote:
13. GoldenRetrieverForum.com Members will treat other members with respect. The Golden Retriever Forum relies on its members to self-monitor in terms of rudeness that is just gratuitous. It is one thing to focus passionately on a topic; it is another thing to call someone an offensive name or to be condescending. We hold golden temperaments on high, so let's see our members be friendly to one another as well, even when disagreements occur. You may respectfully attack a memberís point of view but do not attack the member personally, or be excessively rude in your responses. If a thread starts getting heated, take it to a mod, NOT PUBLIC. Those who do not follow this can be warned, suspended or banned.
