    Default Rep comments

    Just a reminder that we are to keep private the content of any Rep we give or receive. We want folks to feel they can comment without fear of the whole board seeing it. I know I’ve given some rep comments that I consider quite personal.

    We are free to mention generally that Rep was given or received.

    How about people that abuse the rep comments so they can leave antagonistic wise ass insults?

    Still to remain private. I would address those via PM.

    And of course, if it seems like harassment, we can always report to staff.

    Folks are allowed to mention that they received a -/+ rep from someone, but prefer that any comments remain private. Of course many are insults or lame anyway. But if someone becomes abusive, that should be reported and staff will handle.

    Antagonistic will happen, no different than folks being antagonistic to one another on the board itself. But at least with reps, they can only do it so many times and so often.
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
    Winston Churchill

    I have been here 6 years and I have never neg rep any member. And I have dealt with some fairly unsavory characters.
    If it comes to that , I much rather just go to the cage... which I have done in the past several times...--Tyr
