We are on our way

23 posts in this topic

to ruining a really unique forum with;

Childish personal attacks.

Threatening people.

Calling people gay.

Racist comments.

Foul language.

I'm guilty myself of some of the above. I have seen boards ruined by people more interested in causing turmoil then anything else. I hope it won't happen here.

You are absolutly right, coming from me I guess I would have been a big instagator of it. EVen though poking fun is fun and good at times. there is a % of people here that rely on good information.

Hence my Conversion,

I promise to do my best

to do my duty

To Uphold the integrity of TT

and to admonish those that blow it :D

I even try to correct me spelling :)

For this I must say, those of us in TT that are FLAMING with redundant rhetoric as name calling, swearing and worse. Just stop or find a place to park your unhappy butt somewhere else.

Words to live by if you ask me.

Riding Yamaha 's has also been linked to suffering, and lack of sex. (Or perhaps the lack of sex leads to the suffering?)

There are many symbols in our world that show a strong and healthy, physically capable male....from now on, when someone makes fun of my Katoom fender, for the obvious reason...I'll simply reply "It's a symbol of my prowess"

Think about it....what better place to pick up chicks than at a motocross race?? Especially if they know you like to have a good, fast, fun ride? :D

It does seem like this place is going to heck in a handbasket though!!

are you sure it doesn't represent an attempt to make up for some shortcoming you may have. Or, maybe you just like the way it looks. :)

Sorry, couldn't resist. :D

Grr....I should have anticipated and prepared for such a response.....

DOH!!

Yeah, I'm sure! :)

I don't mind some banter. I never mind people making fun of me, I know it's all in fun. (Even if it's not, I usually think it is) I do agree it seems that TT is getting more and more like a Yahoo! Chat board than the TT it used to be when I registed in June of last year.

When you get the Ahmad Quad people, that 2 stroke Gomer who obviously was 12, and the name calling, slander, and flat out ignorance, people, thats where I draw the line.

If you look at ANY AND EVERY post I have EVER made, on Chris Slade (my name and first TT name), or this name, you find I NEVER EVER harrass, slander, or generally make crude and uncalled for statements. That is unnecessary, and not needed on this informational board. But, come on, some fun and play is fine. Some are simply taking it way out of hand.

It does get old doesn't it...

I can honestly say that it's hard for me at times to find the good info I've been used to, when over 1/2 of the posts on any given subject are personal attacks.

I was orginally member #109 before we had our site mix up and lost some of our memberships, and alot has changed... I actually gave up one of "those" other sites because of all the infighting.

BUT HEY. This still WHERE IT'S AT! :)

Have a great weekend!

I try to stay out of the flaming, name calling, ect...

And one thing I don't understand is the swearing... I think once someone starts using $#@#!@@!@#$#% or ********* then it gets personal. I mean grow up people, think of how ridiculous it is to actually TYPE swear words. Can people really get that mad over the internet that they have to start typing fake swear words?! The whole poking fun thing is fun, but personal attacks against people you really dont know!? Give me a break.

Just my 2 cents..

Freestyle

I love a challenge, but I will resolve myself to the occasional rampage.

All TT'rs

Here are some points to ponder for post etiquette.

<ul type="square">[*] Would I let My Kid Read What I post ---Ohh That’s good[*] Does my post incite rational thought?[*] Does my post contain any Swearing?[*] Does my post contain any name-calling?[*] Does my post sound like a Bigot?[*] Am I pissed off so much that I need to reply or just stop and get off the board? Hummmmmm

This may all sound real funny coming from me, but I am dead serious about this, The personal shots as long as they are clean and fun, NOT NAME CALLING or I will coin the phrase "vegas-slaying". This includes just blatant ridicule; name calling, cussing and personal slandering.

Man I just stepped back and looked over the posts and there are only a handful of people that are just out of control. Its one thing to get into a flame session, but make it fun, if its getting to the point your getting :) then back off man its only a forum.

One thing that totally is uncalled for is the insightful suggestions of how people like it and with whom. Do you talk to your kids that way, that’s what bothers me, the most?
