As mentioned, at the moments emotions are running high and with the extra workload it is creating I want to highlight this and encourage members who have forgotten or who are new to relect on this when posting. Before the flaming and aggressiveness starts to become the accepted style for communication, lets get back to the family friendly style.
I would like to address the 5% directly however can't pinpoint them. Some members join the 5% occasionally - a general message to all gives most people the message and the forum genuinely benefits from the vast majority here who help keeps standards up.
Emotions come and go, it's part of life, and it is not a big deal.
This should not be enough reason to start a thread like this, implying there is a serious issue..???
I don't agree with this tactic, now it comes across as you are giving the whole forum a warning for misbehaving
If you can't pinpoint those 5%, it tells me it is not an issue.
If it is an issue, you pinpoint those that are causing it.
If the amount that is misbehaving is not 5 but 50, i would say yeah, sure , start a thread, but 5 ???
5 is soo smal, if you want it smaller, mayby you should consider deleting the whole forum, then the people misbehaving wil be 0.
There wil always be people on this forum that misbehave, is also part of life.
I personally think the forum is running o.k., and I don't see the need for threads like this.
