Gluttony Rules

Postby SecondTalon » Thu Mar 04, 2010 4:36 pm UTC

1. Remember, It's All Opinion. Whose cuisine reigns supreme? I don't care if you are a well-respected food critic with accolades the world over, you've probably never eaten at Ferrell's in Cadiz KY, so while your opinion is your own and should be taken with the knowledge that you are a food critic, you're probably wrong about the best place to get a burger. Yeah, I said it. And there's probably a way better place in Karaadilli anyway.

2. Watch the +1 Postcounting. I understand that sometimes the only thing that you can really add to the conversation is "Oh man, I love that too!" And that's fine. It's only when most of your posts here are identical that we have a problem.

3. Don't Be A Dick. High Culture is a pretty relaxed, free place. I like it like that. A certain amount of banter is to be expected and I'm fine with that. Calling a particular person an idiot... I'd really rather you didn't, and should someone call you an idiot, I'd prefer that you not respond in kind, but generally speaking if it's just a post or two, I'm going to let it slide. We're all relaxed, happy friends here, and I want it to stay that way.

That said, I will not tolerate insulting entire groups of people. I won't tolerate continued insults and belittlement. I won't tolerate constant jackassery...which is fairly ill-defined, I know. I suppose that if a thread is going along fine, someone enters the thread and says something, and an argument breaks out... well, okay. Heated posts for a little bit are one thing. Two pages of arguing are something else. There's a line in there somewhere and like pornography, I can't define it but I know it when I see it.

I have been given the tools to deal with this in a more effective manner, and as I'd much rather spend my moderating time merging like posts and deleting spam rather than being a playground chaperone, I plan on using this tool when I deem it necessary.

This tool doesn't remove you from Gaming, or Food, or Comics. It removes you from High Culture. So, yes, if you're being a jackass in Books it doesn't matter how much you've contributed to Movies - you're gone. I'm tired of dealing with it.

This is your warning.
