    Excuse my language but over the last few weeks we have had quite a few problems on the forum. These pissing contests between members must stop with immediate effect. Calling each other names, running others down, disputing someones advice by insulting them, or just being plain rude to someone. WHY? What does it achieve? It's not on. Do you not enjoy this hobby? Guess what, some of us do, but you're spoiling it for everyone, I've got to the stage where if I come across someone being rude then they will simply get removed from the forum, end of story, no explanation, no motherly PM saying "please don't be rude", I have quite literally had enough of it, and so has everybody else that is simply trying to get advice or give advice. If you're rude then expect to find your account terminated. Enough is enough now guys, please. EVERYBODY's opinion and advice is welcomed, but don't be arrogant if someone offers different advice or a differing opinion, that's how we all learn, rather discuss and debate in a civil manner than fly off the handle and get rude. It's stuffing up the forum and our tolerance of it is now exhausted. There is far too much negativity and politics on the forum lately. Please think and RE-READ your post before hitting that submit button, it only takes one short incorrectly worded sentence to severely hurt someones feelings or start an all out flaming war. It is honestly just spoiling things for everyone else. There are guys out there with huge amounts of knowledge that refuse to post on the forum because of situations just like this, we are losing out on this knowledge sharing. Be nice to each other, be considerate of others opinions, it will make the forum SO much more enjoyable for everyone. :)
