Umm, it seems a bit off the present topic of this thread, but as a link to it was given for discussion in reguard to staff warnings....here goes:
On a couple of occasions I have (for lack of a better term) been "attacked" by certain other members, personally insulted, ridiculed, called names,
etc.....on these occasions I waited, sure that they would be warned....but they were not.
One in particular continued to heap on the abuse, even though I had not and did not stoop to insulting them in return, trying only to refute their
insults by explaining and defending my position.
When that did no good, I finally asked one why they were making the discussion so intensly ugly on a personal level.....asking if they thought I was
someone else, someone they had some previous quarrel with. (Others in the same thread held the same position as I, even to a greater level, but I was
chosed for the most insulting responses) As a last resort, I hit the ignore button.
Should I have notified a mod ? I thought that would have been a bit presumptous on my part, but no one higher up seemed to notice his behavior ( even
though it seemed to be rather trollish ). I can deal with some one disagreeing with me - that happens all the time - but when they are unreasonably
nasty, is there anything I should do? ( Other than hit that ignore button?)
