Lately, we have run into a rash of posts that are insulting, attacking and inflaming directed toward members, players and coaches.

Sadly, these posts recur even though the Code of Conduct is clear about that type of posting.  It is not allowed.

Although we regularly mention that posts violating the Code of Conduct rules will not be tolerated, we continue to see posts that slag other members, players and coaches.

In future, we will issue one warning only to people, especially since the Code of Conduct is clear on the rules and published in each forum.  Going forward, after one warning, we will simply suspend or outright ban people, who think it is okay to attack and insult and ignore the rules here, without further warning.

There is a link in every post to report rule infractions to the Moderators who take action to edit or remove offensive posts.  That is the correct way to deal with these issues.  You also can PM me with any concerns you have with improper posts or other members.

Let's have and continue to enjoy good discussion here.  It should be a good year of football for the Bombers.  Thanks to all for your cooperation.

Can we insult and demean ourselves?

On the Fantasy thread I said, "I suck at this!"

Thanks for restating this.

I think, by and large, most discussions on this board maintain a fairly high level of class and respect.  There aren't endless 500+ post threads which digress into "You're stupid", "No, you're stupid" as can be witnessed on other, unnamed CFL boards which rack up 500+ post threads.  Of all the forums I am a member of (this is the only CFL one, as I don't feel the need to troll Riderfans, which is what I would likely do, and joining the Horsemen forum is somewhat defeatist, as there are only a dozen or so regular posters there, and I think 3 are Winnipeggers (transplant or otherwise)), this is probably the second best one when it comes to conduct.

Thank you mod, the forum is extremely informative but it seems half the posts are from individuals with grudges against other posters who all seem to question the football managerial skills of each other. Don?t worry be happy, it?s going to be a great season, let?s all go along for the ride together!

I like this. While this forum is probably better than most, the amount of personal bickering still discourages me from reading many threads.

You are probably planning on doing this, but since many people may not see this thread (and probably haven't read the code of conduct), just make sure the warning is clear about the consequences of a repeat of the behaviour.

Are you able to ban by IP? Banning by username will help the behaviour of many of us, but the real trolls don't care.

Thanks for taking the time to run this forum! I think my biggest pet peeve recently has been when people express reasonable criticism of the team, management, coaching staff, or even just a different opinion,  they are often jumped on by the ?all positive all the time always right? posters. Constantly bringing up past comments and I told you so?s has made some threads unreadable because of that. For example, our most recent game day thread... I would say that the VAST majority of posters can accept another point of view, but for those who can?t it becomes super annoying and the main reason why I don?t post very often anymore.

So again, thank you mods for trying to bring/keep this forum as a good place for football and other discussion!

I think getting out the banhammer a little bit quicker than we have been can only be a good thing.

Can we insult and demean ourselves?

On the Fantasy thread I said, "I suck at this!"

Or, can we agree with people demeaning themselves? 

If Donny says "I suck at this", and someone says "Donny sucks at this" in agreement, is that against COC?
