Banning rude/negative members

Other members and myself have become more annoyed by "certain" members (who will not me named) on this board.

To be honest the "certain" members are making this board look like a joke and really turn people away when they are not banned for continually bashing. To be honest I have become quite sick of the lack of enforcement and will probably go to another board if this continues.

I have talked to several members and trust me they are just as disgusted and thinking of not posting anymore.

And if I get warned or banned for this post or other posts for speaking my mind about them then so be it.

Dave you are right, I also talked to many members about the ongoing issues and a LOT of people feel the same...This has to stop, one way or another...

Although this would fulfill your desire for increased moderator enforcement, no?

You'd be going to jail, not just getting banned.

I'm talking about the issue of posting something like this (ie: mods/admin not enforcing). Next.

Banning people will not always solve problems (we've noticed on other boards **coughJORDANcough**). Some of the maXmembers are young adolescent males which usually have "sharp" tongues and fast posting impulses associated with them... typical "type before you think" syndrome linked with some keyboard courage which is really the cuplrit for this thread. Also, if this was such as issue as you make it seem, us moderators would be getting MANY more *Reported Post* emails regarding certain threads.... but we don't because it obviously doesn't bother people as much as you make it seem. Speak up if something gets your blood boiling on a specific thread, and remember... this is the internet, don't always take things so damn literal! Relax a bit, we don't want maX to be a tight-ass Nazi board... do we?

"Type before you think". No. It is someone actually taking a stand.

I don't think people know about the "Reported Post" option. So lets see how the polls do.

I've noticed this too. Banning won't really do much, if its a racist comment or something of that sort than a ban could be in order.

Maybe people think that you guys read the threads as well so we dont have to report everything. You guys surf the board too, its not like you guys are blind .. you see whats written.. If there are people who are becoming a detremental factor to this forum then I think there should be necessary actions taken.

If you want us to report more posts then so be it. I'll start reporting and I hope others do to. I would just think that the mods would get just as upset when I read a thread and there is some internet punkbitch flaming and ruining every thread.
