We continually have complaints about personal attacks and over-the-top responses on the mySSnews Forums. This is a warning to all. We encourage diverse discussion, but will not condone name-calling or other personal attacks. State your opinion. Let others state theirs. Many people no longer post here because they felt picked on. If I have to PM you more than twice about a harsh post, then you will get banned for a week. If there's any problem after that, you're banned permanently. Have a great day.

For all that don't know this is because of my response to one "Southernbaptist" for a personal attack on Roxysparkles.


Some of you would like to see me banned I'm sure but I'll stand up to misinformation till the very end. ;)

i'm sure SB would be banned as well for name calling if it continues.....me personally, don't really want to see anyone tossed. i like the differences in opinion, but, not fond of the name calling.


and no. i did not go complaining. not my style. just observed the posts as they were posted.

Didn't say you wanted me banned and sure hope you don't but I'm just not one to sit quietly while someone bashes another in a state of anger. I'll step in every time. ;)

Doesn't look like JB needs as much oversight as SB. :huh:

Seems to me that an employee of NT was doing some of that lately. Admin let it go way too long for one of their own to be involved. That would have been some time behind closed doors in the big office at my work place.

You have to respect sammie, always the gentleman, to come to the help of someone in distress.

It is fun to gouge and poke on a subject, but I have always thought the personal attacks were uncalled for.

Who was the NT employee involved in the personal attacks?? In fact, please PM me who it was and what forum it was in ASAP. Thanks

Personal attacks are very pervasive on the internet because people feel like they can say anything they want at any time without retribution. Well, that is not so. Not only can you lose your board privileges, you are subject to legal action if you say something about someone that is not true. And yes, they can find you. Even a teenager can trace you down. It is not that hard. My preference is to say nothing to a person online that you wouldn't say if they were standing in front of you. That will not eliminate all personal attacks, as some people go off on others in public quite often. But at least using this method would give you some form of standard to go by. Let me tell you, it is a hard thing to ignore an insult but I have done it often, but unfortunately I have done it the other way and all you do is escalate the entire confrontation. Best way to handle it? Relax and go to another topic.

The Bald Man and the Fly

There was once a Bald Man who sat down after work on a hot summer's day. A Fly came up and kept buzzing about his bald pate, and stinging him from time to time. The Man aimed a blow at his little enemy, but his palm came on his head instead;
again the Fly tormented him, but this time the Man was wiser and said:
"You will only injure yourself if you take notice of despicable enemies."

Sorry, Sammie. I don't drink. It causes me all kinds of trouble with the medications I take. Plus, the medications are WAY better than a beer. :woohoo:
