True a day for quoting a mod pm does not seem so bad as these types of comunication are usualy profesional and "priviladged" information.Originally Posted by antowan
It looks as if quite a few people are taking MyADSL for granted and think they can do anything on it. Not so. Abide by the rules, or piss off.
All and fair I agree that there needs to be some rules about pm's if they being abused. All I'm disagree with is the severity of the punishment of 1 day. Personaly a moderation and a warning followed by a 1 day if continuously violated seems more sensable. Not every one reads t/c.Originally Posted by ic
So what that means is if someone sends me a "@#$@#$$ you die beech haha" message that even if I complain to a mod about it there is no way to prove it... :/ Meaning that with this new rule if any one quotes a pm theres no way to prove it either, Its a bit of a concern.Originally Posted by ic
But as I said if anything needs to be layed down in stone: Anouncements/locked thread/updated t/c. Here under under offtopic everything is up for debate

We not breaking rules are we? We discussing them.Originally Posted by MaD
I was meaning the ones who break them. And what is the point of banging on and on and on and on about something? MyADSL is not a site for a few individuals to come and throw tantrums at it's a site where we can all get together and chat NORMALLY about things.Originally Posted by Vio
There are a handful of people who are making this site VERY unpleasant, so much so that I can say with certainty that they are driving people away from this site.
It's not up to them to ruin the myadsl experience for others. If I could ban, I would have a long time ago. Not being unfair, just being fair to MyADSL. Courteousness and respect costs nothing, and the handful of people show none of that to anyone, so they should get lost and go bring down some other forum's name, not this one.
The point is if a PM is offensive or *insert random whine here* you should take it to the Moderators / RPM.if such an email is perceived by the recipient to warrant action on his or her part, action in my opinion must be taken. What you are now propagating is that if you send me mail(and you insult my race etc)I need your permission to go to the cops,
If someone sent you an email insulting your race etc, would you run around in the street, rounding up a mob for some good old vigilante justice? I suspect you would, but the correct course of action would be to take the matter to the cops.
Not that comparing moderators to the police is a great analogy, but they do police the forums and try to keep the idiots in check. (And I'm not calling you an idiot, please don't get all excited)
I agree with MaD whole heartedly. All this moaning and whining about the way the forum is dealt with is distracting us from the real cause why the majority of us are here. If you don’t like it, then leave. I participate in MyADSL because of its professionalism and a few individuals are causing harm and adding no value whatsoever.Originally Posted by MaD
If you want to criticize, then at least let it be about something constructive.
