Play nice, kiddies!

I feel that RideRoom has been degenerating over the last 6-12 months. There have been a lot of childish insults being thrown around in threads by certain members. This toxicity will not help RR grow... rather, it will discourage new members from joining as well as turn away old members.

Because of this, I will remind everyone to play nice. Spirited debates are ok, and even encouraged. However, threats, mindless insults and trolling will no longer be tolerated. "Vacations" will be issued for those who cannot keep their temperment in check.

This is your warning.

BB.

By the way, I don't read all of the threads (and I don't know if the other mods do) but if there are problems with posters, please PM one of us so that we can take action, if necessary.

Not as far as I know. Several people have mentioned that they got an email saying that their contributor status is ending so I'd guess it's that.

Aye, I noticed that my and several others' Contributor status is now kaput. My PM box was super overflowing and I can no longer see the threads I started, hehe.

On our way back from the beach, we were trying to decide where to eat dinner. At that moment, we were passed by a Rendezvous with the Ohio license plate "ASK GOD." So we did, and we ended up at some shitty Texas roadhouse-style place. Next time, I pick.--AchTTung
