Lately, SM has been plagued with petty quibbling and near personal attacks in several threads. Whether it is the change of seasons, high humidity, or the phase of the moon is undetermined, nor relevant. We REQUIRE civilized discussions, and REQUIRE members to avoid personal insults and attacks. This applies to all, no one is immune; not newbs, not long time members, and not staff. See the CoC item 1, found here - https://www.survivalmonkey.com/threads/survivalmonkey-com-site-rules.4757/ or at the bottom right of the page you happen to be on. We can, and do, use some judgement in taking measures to dissuade and steer things away from petty nit picking over differences of opinion. Flogging those differences to death qualifies as flaming as well as “personal attacks” and has to be handled in exactly the same way. Not only that, but such silliness and uncivil activity usually results in thread deviation well beyond the bounds of reason. Staff has other things to do than be police, and rather does not like taking enforcement actions against any member (with the exception of spammers. We live to hit the ban button on 'em.) But enforcement will be done as necessary. We are going to take the slack out of the leeway rope. If this offends your sensibilities, well, we really don’t care; it has to do with site health, not yours, not mine, but ours.
