I thought that there was a rule against name calling....


Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm wrong, but according to the rules of Pcom, you aren't supposed to call people names.

 

1. Discussions and comments should be civil and specific to the issue at hand (as opposed to directed towards an individual member). Please refrain from vulgarity, libel, name-calling, and gratuitous gossip. Members need to avoid name-calling that calls into question someone's character.

 

 

However, I continually see people being called, stupid, damned fool, trucking idiot, ignorant, ignorant moron, and so forth. I've been called one of these names, I retaliated by calling the name caller a stupid jacka$$ and got a bullet for it, which is fine because I should have overlooked it and gone about my business. I'm just confused as to why it's OK for some and not others.

 

These aren't phrases such as, 'you're acting like a damned fool', but, 'you're are a damned fool'. Or, 'you're an ignorant moron', etc. How do these derogatory names not call someones character into question?

 

Obviously, I don't understand this rule. In my world, name calling is name calling.

A little name calling is good for the soul, especially when I'm behind some stupid idiot on the highway!

I think Pubby would be the first to tell you that unless you report a post, neither he nor the mods likely don't know there is a problem.

 

I said something to him about a post I felt sure he had seen but he said he didn't and asked if I reported it. I told him I didn't. He said "then we probably didn't know there was a problem".

Agreed. Can you report it even if you're not the one being called names? It gets really old seeing the same person getting away with it over and over and over.

Sure. Anyone can report any post. If YOU feel someone crossed the line even if you weren't the target, report it.

Did I just call you a name?

 

Sorry, but it doesn't bother me. If I get so upset I want to call someone a name, then it's worth the bullet.

 

ETA: If I saw it getting out of control, I might report it. I don't like to see racism on here, so that's probably something I would report. I'm not beyond reporting, but it's got to be pretty bad. Just sayin'

If you have 12K+ posts and 1 bullet, I'd say you're doing pretty good :)

So....whenever someone calls me a name and likewise whenever I call someone a name I should report it? Mods.....you gonna be real busy.

 

All kidding aside, I just thought there just was very limited moderation. For whatever reason.

Name calling is a line in the sand. Debates and arguments get heated people get upset. The next day people can be on the same side of a subject.

When you call names or insult people you make an enemy.

It is easy to see how much of that has occurred on here in the past by how adversarial people are.

It should be a life rule and we should not need to moderate that issue because it should never happen.

When I talk to Momof3 or NC and call them a name they know I'm playing with them and I'm pretty sure the mods know this as well. I don't do name calling in a hateful way, that is beneth me. Hold up, I'm fond of dumbass, but then again, I use that in a fun way as well, so no that wouldn't be in a hateful way neither.

 

If I was to be hateful, it would be a string of cuss words. That's more me. That is a sign that I'm am angry.
