I agree it's not being used enough in some very specific circumstances. I don't understand what you mean by saying it's not used for the right reasons.

There are people using the forums for negative posts towards others and it's just relentless at times. Anywhere a remark can be made it will be made. It's both members and f2p. They have never been disciplined through the ban procedure even though it's continuous negative behavour. I feel their negative posting doesn't stop because they aren't going to miss out on anything, they are not getting banned for there continuous negative posts.

The moderators pretty much keep on top of it by hiding the posts dependent on who's moderating at the time, if any moderators are on, if it's reported or if they feel it should be hidden (it all should be hidden in my eyes), any negative posts should not be tolerated. But this form of moderation is not getting through to some people, the negative posts still come regularly, I feel it need to go up to the next step, which is temp ban and if they still haven't learned further down the track perm ban.

These forums can be a really pleasant place and it should be for all that use it, it shouldn't matter if you don't agree, don't like the post or person. If it was moderated correctly, you would get rid of a lot of the negative posts, as I am sure no one wants to be perm ban.


Being negative isn't bannable, nor should it be.

What's important is:
a. Is it constructive?
b. Is it relevant?
c. Is it posted without flaming?

Something can be negative and yet contribute to the thread. If that's not what you mean, then please use more specific language in your post.

As I started in the opening post, most of the posts are being hidden, they are not appropriate - what this thread is about is these posters constantly use negative, hurtful, bully type posts to target an individual user, the hiding of these posts are not deterring these people. I feel taking it up to the next step, which would be temp or perm ban. Hopefully it will stop before perm ban.


I don't believe negative makes sense in that context.

If by negative you mean "malicious" posts, then yes I agree 100%
