Alright, here's how it's going to be.

Postby Chef Mongo » Tue Aug 19, 2008 10:23 pm

Let me start by saying I'm glad to see that things seem to have calmed considerably over the last few days. All the feuding parties seem to be either licking their wounds, biding their time or taking up meditation.

Now, on to business.

It's no secret that there has been a lot of wrangling on the board of late. I've taken part in it, something of which I'm not proud. As an admin, it's incumbent upon me to always take the high road, something I haven't done terribly well at times. I promise all of you that I will do better.

And speaking of doing better ...

Starting right now, this very second, all accounts are cleared, all debts paid, all hurts salved and all revenges de-plotted as far as anything public on the GEFP goes. All the admins know that there are many, many wronged parties with many, many degrees of offense and injury. We wish we could address each of your cases individually, but the issue has become so snarled that's completely impossible at this point.

So, as of right now, we're going to very politely ask you all to mind your manners in public. This does NOT mean no arguing. Argument is one of the greatest things about this board. What we're talking about is the kind of vicious, hurtful, thoughtless, semi-psychotic attack behavior that's been soiling an inordinate number of the threads on this board.

I won't be exactly defining the conduct described above. That's impossible. When it comes right down to it, it's almost always a judgement call. That's why boards like this have admins. We have been lax in making the needed judgement calls in the past, and I can assure you that will not continue. We're not out to bust heads, in fact it is my fondest hope that we'll never need to so much as warn someone.

We've never all loved one another. That's just not human nature. But by the gods, we will be civil to one another.

The steps to the new "attitude adjustment" policy will be as follows:

1. A PM warning from an admin giving specific quotes or links showing the inappropriate conduct and politely requesting that the recipient refrain from further.

2. A second PM warning and summary deletion of the posts deemed in violation.

3. A one-week "time out" during which posting priveleges and access to PMs will be suspended. Advance notice will be given of this step in order to give the recipient time to let PM buddies know.

4. Banning. Permanently.

None of these steps will be announced publicly or privately. They will be kept solely between the admins and the user.

So, boiled down: Behave like adults and you'll never hear from us in this respect.

Good news, Mongo.

I think it's a rational approach. As you say, if everyone does the right thing, nothing needs to happen.

But if things do start to spin out of control, at least now it will hopefully be halted before the collateral damage starts getting out of hand.

Thanks to you, Shawn and the rest of the crew...

Y'all forgot the beer. ;) I do believe ribs without a cold one to wash 'em back is a sin in certain parts of the south and along the Atlantic seaboard.

As for the new policy: That sounds like a reasoned, rational thing. Just because I'm neither reasoned or rational, this doesn't mean I don't recognize those things when I see them. 8)

Just keep the first two in the back room where the kids can't see 'em.

And bring on the beer!

Absolutely Good news. But FWIW, Shawn has been MIA now for at least 5 days... On vacation I think. No pms opened or replies... As a matter of fact, Mongo was the only one of the 3 mods that replied to my pm last Monday. Just saying.

So, a Big Thanks to Mongo for pretty much taking this whole mess on himself. It's indeed a thankless job, and I appreciate you.


Now, back to hookers and blow.

You left out passive-agressive. :wink: :lol:

All kidding aside, while I find it disgraceful that we as a group need babysitters, I applaud the efforts of the admins in this undertaking.

Well, since you apparently felt a need to call me out publicly on the subject, I'll respond in kind. The only reason I didn't write back is because I was waiting to hear the opinion of the other admins, so I had something concrete to tell you. By the time I had a chance, Mongo had already posted the announcement. A thousand apologies for any perceived inadequacy, madame.

Beenie,

I meant no harm in it. I was just saying that Shawn is no where to be found, and honestly I expected a reply from you. I expected a reply from every mod. It was 4 days...

From my perspective, Scott was the only one handling what was a tough situation. He took a lot of poopie over it too. I meant it as a praise of him not as a slam at you. I'm truly sorry if it came across that way.
