Dear SBLive! Members
 
Dear SBLive! Members.

We hope that you are enjoying SBLive! and we are working hard to improve the site for our members each and every day. We have recently noticed an increase in the level of name calling and personal attacks within the SBLive! forums. This site was intended for discussion and debate of local topics and issues, not the attack of fellow members. In other words, shoot the message and not the messenger if you please. We believe this would make the discussion more productive and enjoyable for all. This is just a friendly reminder of a portion of our Terms of Use policy.

Prohibited Content includes, but is not limited to Content that:

1.is patently offensive and promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual;

2.harasses or advocates harassment of another person;

7.promotes…conduct that is abusive, threatening, obscene, defamatory or libelous;

Thank you for your consideration and we hope you continue to enjoy our site, while we continue our efforts to grow a productive online community in Shreveport and Bossier.

We would also like to express our thanks for those of you who have contributed by uploading content and also helping us to spread the word and sign-up new users. That kind of spirit helps us to build a strong commitment and belief in SBLive!

Thanks for the reminder. I think most everyone would like to keep the board friendly. I just hope that you understand when every post you make is attacked by one person it gets extremely irritating. It is wrong for one person to constantly berate and belittle everybody on this board. But hey we are all grown ups so the grown ups will do better, but what is going to happen from this point forward when ONE PERSON doesn't stop?

Actually, I've been watching several people flame each other for several days now. Though certain specific members seem to always be amongst the fray, they are not the only ones guilty.

Hey TBelle, isn't it funny how "some" folks just can't help but make negative comments about other users even when they've just been asked not to do so?

Grown up indeed.

We're all guilty, if you want it to stop, then stop it.

I don't think SBLive is asking folks to not make negative comments but rather to direct those comments towards issues and not members in order to tone down the amount of personal attacks and name calling.

I have noticed that some really good members like Rough Rider, Bob, Cramer, Isabella, and Al Swearengen don't show up as often as they used to. I wonder if the negative vibe hasn't taken its toll on this board. I hope not.

Texasbelle 06-07-2007 05:23 PM

I think he has taken a toll on the board, more than perhaps you realize. I myself have considered more than once just walking away because you can't have any discussion lately without getting called a name, your post being attacked in a ridiculous manner vs. discussion, etc. However, for me I will not let one person's constant barrage of venom ruin what I consider a great place to visit.

It's time to start using the ignore button folks! I'll be hitting mine right after I hit submit reply.

Isaac-Saxxon 06-07-2007 06:51 PM

I do not need the ignore button. I can contain my flames if the vile language is dropped and personal insults. You have all seen me be fun and try to start fun threads. There are times that I will post a personal opinion be it Christian or political and then the fire starts and I am not intimidated but indigent. I will give it another shot it lasted about two weeks last time. I still think human nature will rule the day. We all know the game so let us play it on the high road and hope it does not take the low road again. I will not put up with any attacks and I will do no more attacks unless I am attacked. Olive branch one more time. "Peace Treaty" a temporary lull in war ;)

Texasbelle 06-07-2007 06:55 PM

I hit the Ignore button and we'll see how it goes. I can always undo it. I think I might enjoy it.

piemaker720 06-07-2007 07:30 PM

Belle, I to have hit the ignore button.

I believe the exact content of the post was:

Prohibited Content includes, but is not limited to Content that:

1.is patently offensive and promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual;

2.harasses or advocates harassment of another person;

7.promotes…conduct that is abusive, threatening, obscene, defamatory or libelous;


Now if you care to explain how her initial comment on this topic WAS NOT hate filled, a feeble attempt at justifying her actions rather than admitting at least partial guilt, AND defamatory and liableous by implying that I have attacked every post RATHER than having merely stated my opinion in a manner she disagree with, and that I am the only person guilty of said "crime" without taking into the consideration the content of her own post, then I'm all ears.....but you'll find that if you really start to look at things objectively, that's quite an impossible task.

and even though she chose to take another jab BEFORE utilizing the ignore feature, I'll let that one slide as a sign of my efforts as well....but I doubt it will last.
