It looks like it's time we should have a refresher in the rules. If everyone could take the time to go read them here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1 it would be great. All the rules carry equal weight, but in particular, please pay attention to the very first one (quoted below for your convenience).

Quote:
Be Respectful!
Here at Absolute Vorticity, showing respect to other posters is required. Naturally as humans, we can and will get aggravated or upset at others. However, this is not the place to publicly bash and put-down fellow members.


Lately there has been a bit of a problem with following that rule, and a few complaints because of it. We have tried to quash it in the threads, but it keeps happening. It has been decided that we will be a little more heavy-handed in enforcing the rules. From here on out, you will get one warning which will last 90 days. If you break the rule again within those 90 days, you will be given a 30-day ban without question. Notice we did not say "fellow members of the forum", which means this rule applies to those that are not members as well. If you have a problem with someone, figure out some other way to express your feelings. If it's a problem with someone here, feel free to take it up via PM with them and work out your differences, or PM an Admin or Mod should you feel our actions are necessary.

Thanks for posting this, Aaron. Things got quite heated today, and that just can't happen. It's one thing to debate a forecast, but it's a completely different ballgame when one starts publicly bashing others (as specified in the rule I wrote years ago).

This system sounds great and will hopefully keep things at bay from here on out! Thanks again for posting this, buddy! :D
