Keep in mind that when a thread is locked a lot of the offending posts are deleted or cleaned up. The reason we lock them is to stop those arguments from continuing.

There have been plenty of heated debates and disagreements that we won't lock. But once it devolves into insults and personal attacks, we have to do something.

So everyone knows, I've locked the Harper thread for the time being because it seems like everyone needs to chill out. I'll re-open it tomorrow after everyone's calmed down. If he does something unexpected like sign a contract today, I'll re-open it earlier.

I'm going to go public with a couple decisions the Moderator team made because I want to emphasize a line we have drawn on the forum.

1.) BAS has been asked to not post to the politics for 1 week as sort of a cooling off period.
2.) 33anda3rd has been banned from the forum for 1 week.

I'm making these decisions public because I want to stress that personal attacks will not be tolerated on the forum.

I also want to let everyone know that we are going to be cracking down on the tiresome back-and-forths that devolve into arguing semantics. Especially in the politics forum.

It's gotten to a point that I don't enjoy coming to the forum and i'm frankly sick of the direction half the posts we have end up going. We want this to be a fun place to visit and share your thoughts and opinions on the various forums we have here. If you can't contribute positively to that then the mods will start issuing warnings, 1 week bans, an finally permanent bans.

We feel like we give a lot of leeway and flexibility in our posting rules to make this a fun place to have discourse. Not being able to follow the basic rules stated in the first post of this thread is not going to be tolerated.

Thanks everyone.

Thanks for all you mods are doing to keep this place a great place to hang out. I agree with what you've done here. Just sayin.
