Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome to the Armed, Polite Society discussion forum. We are hosted free of charge by Geovario
. The rules of conduct here are what you would expect in any civilized home: be civil to others, don't advocate commission of capital crimes and keep the language and the imagery tame. Otherwise, all topics are welcome.
If someone treats you rudely, you may send a PM to me with the thread URL, offender name and the description of the problem. Depending on the severity of the offense, that person's account and all posts may be removed at once or we might wait until several complaints come in. Of course, anyone here can do the same if you are rude to them. That means treading lightly and being extra civil to everyone will be in your own self-interest. Keep in mind that participation in hot-button topics puts you at higher risk of accidentally offending somebody.
To prevent trolls from abusing this method and filing false accusations, I will treat deliberately filing false reports as a banning offense as well. It may happen the first time, or may happen the third time, but no self-styled Inquisitor will be able to get good members banned on a whim.
Of course, the easiest way to deal with problem members is to ignore them. Don't rise to the bait.
Enjoy APS forum and please be a credit to the RKBA lifestyle.
