    This is an official warning:

    I have noticed a sharp increase in personal attacks and it needs to be toned down.

    Starting right now, any personal attacks that I see, or are reported will result in the following:

    First attack: Warning
    Second attack: 1 day ban
    Third attack: 3 day ban
    Fourth attack: 5 day ban
    Fifth attack: 1 month ban

    Is there a milder world than stupid or idiot when somebody says something really dumb ?

    It sounds to me like you want us to stop doing that. While I understand your perspective, it sort of leaves a void, not being able to say a statement is dumb. Hopefully you don't consider that a personal attack.

    I don't think calling a post idiotic is a personal attack....calling the person idiotic would be the attack.

    For example: "BigRob, what you said here is idiotic in my opinion, here is why...." would be fine with me...however "BigRob, you are an idiot" would clearly be an attack and be in violation of the rules in my opinion.

    I have no problem with calling a post "dumb."

    Sounds fair! Actually, very generous. :)

    Now, what happen if a mod engages in personal attacks? Are we allowed to report them too? ;)

    I noticed the worst punishment you have is a one month ban. Can Bododie be punished according to these rules instead of the way she was banned?

    Please...

    I have never seen you personally attack a fellow poster, just McDonalds and politicians and the media and that is fair. We just cant personally attack eachother. At least that is how I read the rules and also Rob's thread

    I can't read all the posts. If someone is getting attacked, you have to report it.

    Of course. If you feel I am personally attacking you etc, just report it to the other Mod. (PLC in this case)

    Steve, I have never seen you personally attack anyone. Feel free to put down the media and government all you like, just don't personally attack other posters.

    Just kidding, Rob!

    lthough we usually disagree and banter, I don't feel we attack each other, and I enjoy our debates.;):)
