These are some of the treasures that have been stored up in the flame forum, just to give you an idea of what you don’t see on a daily basis, and the reason we have suspensions:

Not all of these resulted in a suspension. I try to look at the circumstances of the post, the familiarity of the poster with Forumosa, and the intentions of the poster. I try to be consistent, but I don’t always succeed. It’s not an easy task, especially when I know so many of the regular posters on Forumosa, but it’s important to me that this site remain a friendly place, and content like the above detracts from that. I believe that personal attacks make the site worse, and I don’t think we should start justifying our own personal attacks just because we feel they’re “deserved” because it’s likely that all people making personal attacks think that they are deserved, right?
I try to keep in mind Postel’s Law: “Be conservative in what you do; be liberal in what you accept from others.”
