Would a feature like that work on this forum? Just a thought. As said before if I was a newbie and thread of mine had argumentative comments in it may push me away from the forum all together, how ever I have got used to these arguments even on threads I have started and wont tolerate it and will delete any threads I have started, but not every one is the same.

    Dave,

    I think you are a total, utter & complete...nice bloke!!!

    We've got a triangle too, it's at the top right of the post by the post number. That opens a new page with a free form text box to report your reasons with it.

    A great positive message and a good reminder the good always by far outweighs the bad. It's the people that have kept me here when things have got hard and I am to have met them.

    Yes, I have noticed a lot of aggression / abuse on here in recent years; both overt and passive-aggressive. The atmosphere does seem different to when I first joined 8 years ago. I still read, but don't post much as I just don't want to get caught up in arguments.

    I quite agree Darwin, ive been here some years now too, and before 2014 there wasn't much conflict on the forum. I took a break in 2014 along with some other members because it became too much.

    There will always be some conflict with different personalities and different advice styles...what is seen as offensive to one, might just be seen as being honest by another. Take emojis for example, some members like to use borderline porno emojis because they think theyre funny, but others might be offended by them or think them inappropriate for a forum with minimum age 13...so you see, It depends how you look at it.

    Some of the subject topics on here aren't even suitable for children, in my opinion. The sex ones are potentially too graphic and every parent will understandably have different opinions on that.

    I think that's worse than a cartoon graphic, which I've been guilty of. And to point out, there is swearing emoji on the standard forum list. Actually there are several. "Finger", "WTF". I've removed them if a member raises a concern and I understand why, I tend to post comical ones most of the time.

    Swearing at members too. That's not language I would use in front of a child. That needs to be kept in mind. We do get cheeky on the games threads but it's not used against other members. I'm not sure about Admin's opinion there but it's the intent I've looked at more but realise I'm guilty of it in the lighthearted threads.

    I've found the abuse I've had has been off members with join dates that go back many years, not just more recent. I remember when I joined there were already arguments going on.

    And a reminder that if Admin think people are posting just to have a go at others, their posts will be deleted and they will be barred from that particular thread.

    Blunt is acceptable under the correct circumstances, but ridiculing is not.

    It affects more people than the OP and will not be tolerated.

    Yes this is all good, but what I want to ask is on certain posts (no names mentioned) and a poster keeps asking for reassurance should we all take notice of this harmful destructive cycle and not keep giving reassurance? I certainly think we should and I have made this very clear in my replies. As for arguments well think NMP had less of this many years ago based on lots of very old posts I have read. Lets all hope we can all be helpful and kind to every one in 2018 ATB
