    Does anyone know if there is a thread or page somewhere on Flytalk that deals with the level of conduct required by posters to Fly Talk?

    I am interested to read it if it exists but cant seem to find anything.

    Thx

    I think it was here somewhere ... I really remember something like that - it was a locked thread, not so??

    Ah Thanks Phillip! So point one in that? You state you won't tolerate it, but what are the repercussions?

    Is it just a case of deleting the offending posts or do you do more?

    I just thought the comments that were deleted in the other post are not called for on a forum like this and people making comments like that should not be welcome.

    At the very least people trusted to be moderators should not be talking like that.

    Grant, I second your post.

    In case some one wonders what was said, I have some screen shots.

    Hi Grant,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Trust me I don't want to delete posts. There is always a few questions in a case like this that has to be answered.

    - Does it degrade the thread and the forum?
    - Do the other followers of the thread want to read posts like this? In this case it is a good thread with many readers. I believe 90% didn't want to read it.
    - Are newcomers to the forum put off by reading this?
    - When it gets personal, could the member have rather sent a pm to the other member?

    Quite often threads like this can be entertaining and still in good spirit, but it can reach a certain notch when it is not acceptable anymore.

    Also many youngsters on the forum who likes all the great info and there we as admins (myself and MC) also have a responsibility.

    You have contributed immensely to this forum and that is what 100% of us want to read.
