The rest of the staff and I have noticed a serious upswing in breaking a particular rule and it's worrying. The rule is about respecting people. This website is supposed to be a place to have fun, learn, make friends etc and a part of that being allowed is that we expect people to respect others. Now respect is a big thing and it can make a difference in your interactions with others. Treat someone with a little respect and you will be amazed how they respond. You don't attack people's posts etc. Yes you can have a different option but you express that respectfully. You may think a post breaks the rules, so report it instead of being rude and attacking people's posts. Respect is a basic part of human interaction and it's expected you respect everyone here, staff and members alike. You start acting up, you break the rules, you do get warning points and face the consequences, that's a given. Please be aware using phrases such as 'not to be disrespectful' or 'in my opinion' or 'no offense but' does not excuse you attacking, belittling or disrespecting one another person. They are not an excuse or a defence. Keep in mind that sometimes you may not mean to sound awful, rude, or mean but people can perceive it like that. The internet doesn't allow us to read a persons tone. It's important to read over what you wrote before you post just to check that. Remember that perception is reality and due to the fact tone can not be properly conveyed the Internet makes things that much more complicated. We have rules for a reason. So please people, read the rules and follow them. We don't expect perfection but we do expect you start acting and treating people with a little respect.
Let's talk about respect
