Yes it is Paintball and how many of us talk smack on the field its all in fun, I can see If someone became sexist or rascist, But if we had some good moderators in a flames forum that could be kept to a minimum and if there was a set, set of rules saying what and what is not allowed and someone posted something that was against the rules There profile could be suspended or terminated
My .02 cents
There will be no flames forum. It is the one thing we are pretty dead-set on. I'm sorry you feel the need for one. Flame forums, regardless of the diligence of the moderator, always degenerate to general mayhem, name calling, and personal insults. This is not the atmosphere we are trying to promote here. You can have an intelligent disagreement with someone in the topic forum. That is fine. We won't always agree on things. That's the way humans are. The trick is to remain civil and respectful of the person you are disagreeing with. We will not lock or delete a thread that is an intelligent discussion or disagreement as long as it remains respectful. Having a place set aside for "flames" is contradictory to that belief. If you can't have an intelligent disagreement, then it needs to be taken private, or taken elsewhere.
Trash talking on the field is a whole different subject that I won't get into here.
