    I think I've calmed down a bit over the past few months. It's all in the name of Gilmo.

    I don't think it's something that can be stopped Chris. It's human nature. You have the good, the bad, and the ugly. Always will on any site and no matter what rules you put in place.

    Hey it's your site, you sail this ship. But I don't think that's a good idea. Everyone has a bad day, some have a bad year. It wouldn't be good for business to just toss people that rub you the wrong way. And I know there are many, myself included, that rub you the wrong way.

    Most do not have any sense of humor. They should have midol on hand. I would hate to see them at a party or large gathering. They would be sticks in the mud.
    But i am just crazy

    Ill politely warn people through pm if i see them being a dick more than usual. Usually ask if everything is ok etc. Usually they apologize and say theyve been stressed about one thing or another and were unintentionally taking it out on here.

    I honestly think the landscape of the internet has changed so much over the past couple years, and it seems peoples attitudes have changed along with it. Perhaps life itself has just become harder recently for some/most thus it is reflecting with their online persona. Point being, I too have noticed it but it seems to be something across the entire net, or atleast the forums I frequent, and not just a FCB issue.

    You guys are mean.

    The ability to decipher sarcasm and take a friendly ribbing has been assassinated by the desire to have and keep a stick rammed up the ass!

    I think the boredom an monotony of the hobby cause gravy training and dog piling to be forms of entertainment.

    You see the angriest treads go the longest. It's always been that way!

    Maybe the best way to squash it is to start putting a delta bravo indicator under the members avatar. Like the send first envelope. Mods could use the dislike button as the decider and the people who gain 10 dislikes in xxx amount of days gets branded for xxx amount of days. Who is going to want to rock a douche bag badge?

    Besides me.

    The politics have fueled a lot of it (at least form what I can tell). I have backed up my views, and I have received lots o hate. Its the internet though, so I don't give 2 XXXXs.
