    That's the way we feel too...

    And remember folks, just because you are quoting someone else, that doesn't make prohibited language OK!

    I have noticed a rise lately in the use of offensive language on here, and it always bugs me a little bit. Not that my spoken language is clean by any means. But I feel that this is a professional, intelligent group of people, who can probably find other ways to express themselves without resorting to that language, and it makes the whole group look better without it IMO.
    Thanks Buckeye,

    We've noticed the rise too and I'd just like to point out the following:

Doing so will help make the forum more enjoyable for you and prevent any problems later.

    We have a number of staff on most times of the day, but we can't be everywhere at once and we have an growing number of threads and posts to keep up with, with limited staff. We try, but sometimes miss something that requires staff action. If you do encounter any rule violations, we encourage you to use the report post icon , please use this to also report duplicate threads, multiple threads on the exact same story and spam advertisements.

    Done and I know this is going to sound weird but reading the rules again was a great change of pace from the last 2 weeks of working on next year's budget.

    Remember that if you find politics, foul language, attacks on other members please click the little red and white triangle with the exclamation mark in it on each post and "report" it to us. When this is done it creates a thread in the staff area and alerts us that there is something that needs our attention. With as many posts as we get there are infractions that occasionally go unnoticed. A report is the quickest way to get a problem resolved and helps keep us true to the rules.....

    I do need glasses to read them though.

    Which are the new ones? Looks like the same ones from last year!

    I read them backwards this time. I already know them by heart in the usual direction.

    Hmmmmm! Maybe I should look for another forum ...

    Seriously, a big thank you to all the Admins, Mods, and other volunteers.
    Being the admin/mod of a motorcycle club forum, I know it is not always easy.
    You guys are doing a great job
    I sure don't miss PDO anymore.

    I really like this idea of yearly rules refreshers. I wish more places did something like this.

    This also makes for a good time to reread your state's CCW rules if you don't do it on a more regular basis.

    No problem Bumper. This is still the best site on the net and it's a small price to pay for it.
