I think posts such as post 889689 need to be nipped early, if not deleted.

When visitors and new users visit a website and see such personal attacks, it can put them off from joining in conversations, which will be a shame.

I don't think there is an excuse to commit attacks on people, no matter how much of a pain other people can be. I thought the rule was, if you need to complain about someone, you send a PM to the appropriate moderator, not attack them publicly.

TBH, I don't have the desire to look at all postings and remember who said what and to whom, so I don't know what the beef between Harry and neo is, but I don't think it needs public airing like this, and besides, whatever the discussion, this is a website inspired by a family show and there are minors on this website, so certain language should be controlled (there are certain threads/occasions when then can be excused).

I've reported the particular post in question here as I don't think a discussion over censorship needs to spoil a discussion. Similarly, I find previous altercations between certain posters and mods over censorship sometimes derails a whole discussion, and I think it's better for such disagreements to take place away from other discussions.

Having just read the offending post I can only agree. That style of post really doesn't mesh with the tone of this site.

The poster in question is not exactly leaving a trail of interestingness behind him.

Indeed, as offensive as that post is - thus far - it's been about the LEAST offensive thing I've seen from him

The 'options' on his poll on another post don't exactly strike me as the family friendly sort of wording one would expect from QI either.

Harry performs the useful role of making my behaviour appear acceptablly moderate, but whether he (or indeed I) adds anything of value to the discussions is a different question.

I still think the level of insults/name calling in here is streets ahead of the same in other for(ums/ii). Sometimes for S&G I look at other for(ums/ii), it never fails to amaze me how such mouth breathers can exist. They can't spell or type a coherent sentence, any argument ( I shan't use discussion in relation to their spats) quickly degenerates into youtube type arguments. Normally I am a fairly live and let live type of guy especially as regards idiosyncratic spelling (yes Nin that includes you and your sCince ) and/or grammar, but when every second post uses "of" instead of "have" (a pet hate of mine) even I can get annoyed.

That's such an old-fashioned response - something of an acronysm in fact.

I don't care if that's correct, I'm going to use it anyway!
