Seems like every few months or so I have to restate this...
This forum is here for the CIVIL discussion of things related to Aliens and UFOs. You will treat your fellow member with respect and CIVILITY
or you will not be able to post here anymore.
If the topic your fellow member posted about is not something you agree with, you find horrid, or absolutely HATE, that's fine. Share your opinion in
a CIVIL, NON RIDICULING, POLITE way and direct your statements to the TOPIC not your fellow ATSer.
There is another option, if all you have is snarky, snide, or rude comments, KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF.
This forum is a wide open playing field, we have hundreds of new members who are new to this topic, they WILL BE treated with the respect and civility
a fellow ATS member deserves.
This applies to people you think may be hoaxing as well. The staff will deal with hoaxers, simply alert the thread/post and we will handle it.
Don't risk your membership by going off on ANYONE, being a rude jerk or hammering on those who haven't had the chance to learn what you have learned
yet as that's probably why they came here don't you think? How would YOU have felt if I came down on you the first few days you were a member of
I am serious about this and we've directed the staff to keep a vigilant eye on this forum and we are asking our members to use the ALERT
Button to notify the staff of offending posts.
