    I will say this there are a few members here that would really need to calm down a bit. And as far as trying to bait members into getting banned its not gonna work on me if that is what worries the poster above me.

    I can buy that, However a bit of humility and a apology when one of you over step the mark wouldn't go a miss..

    To say sorry when you are wrong is not a sign of weakness it is the sign of being a infallible human being, something that we all are and a lot of people forget. :cheers:

    In regards to the topic, I am actually a bit confused as to what caused/triggered it. I must have missed it and I am glad. But I must say I just peruse the Celebrity section with some outliers in the Creative Backyard. I confess that I think some little spiteful stuff for myself every once in a while I misclick so to speak, but I do not speak out. And I usually do not involve myself in such matters. Also I believe that some drama is kind of "fake", i.e. rather inconsequential by itself but still results in the thread staying on the first page for a long while. Now this has happened so often by now, I am wondering if people rather come by to post random mean content or rather bump the thread.
    Who would that be? How do you know? :)

    I couldn't agree more, or said it better myself.
    I can't argue with that. I've made my fair share of apologies, both public and private. I may have missed a few though, as I've made numerous errors in judgement around here. Let's call 'em senior moments. I am getting old, you know. :lol:

    Easy there, big fella.

    Take a chill pill and go look at the pretty girls elsewhere on the forum. :empathy:
    It wasn't any event or comment in particular. Just a preponderance of nonsense I thought I'd address by reminding people that we do have a policy in place that's meant to stifle derogatory comments, and that I'm going to apply that policy in a more serious fashion then I had been.

    As for who's looking around? Who knows, probably no one. But you never know.

    There was a time when this would have bothered me, but that ship sailed a while back. You have to be you and I have to be me. Unfortunately, that doesnt mesh. Its not by my choice. I have never disrespected you or spoken down to you. I have always tried to stay true to myself and honest in my actions. If that doesnt sit well with you, what can I do? I have never suggested, upheld or expected any standard that I would not or have not conformed to myself.

    At any rate, here's the bottom line:

    If you're a new or regular contributor whose comments are for the most part bearable, if not intelligent or otherwise interesting, you can be forgiven for the odd comment that pushes the envelope.

    Conversely, if you're a new or regular contributor whose sole purpose in visiting phun is to rile or provoke other members, then we really have no use for your ilk and we will summarily be rid of you at some point. Probably sooner than later.

    It had nothing to do with you whatsoever. You never even crossed my mind.

    Sounds like a lot of overly-verbose cognitive dissonance psychobabble to me. So thick you can cut it with a knife.

    In general, I agree with this direction.

    Furthermore, I'd like to add a personal experience for those saying that people defending celebrities should get the same treatment. A while ago, I posted a few images of a model (doesn't matter who), at a club, having fun. This particular model is married and has children. A couple of people called her slut for her actions, and I got into discussion with them. Not really to defend her, but to understand their point of view. At some point, I said to a poster who had, in my opinion, quite old fashioned and strict opinion on how a woman should behave, that I feel sorry for his wife. That was basically meant as a disagreement to said opinions, but was taken as an attack to his family.

    I received an infraction for that incident, which I found justifiable, although it was a misunderstanding, apologised to that posted and moved on.

    Why did I type all that? Basically I am trying to say this. First of all in goes both ways. Whether you're an asshole towards celebrities, or towards fellow posters, you're still an asshole. Try to behave like you would in your real life, not like an asshole just because you're anonymous online. And if you offend someone and understand why, apologise. Even if you don't fully agree with it, you can do it in an honest way without compromising your position.

    In my opinion the thing to remember about an apology is that you are saying you are sorry that offense was given not that you are wrong about having a different opinion.
