Obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening posts

EFers 'accepted' this text they when they joined EF.
Although the administrators and moderators of English Forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages…

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

The owners of English Forum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

We understand the automatic reaction of members when, in the course of a discussion Thread, an Efer makes comments which come under the above headings, or are undeniably racist. However satisfying it is to one’s personal feelings, replying in a similar manner simply makes it even more difficult for Mods to take the correct action.

Reported posts are looked at and dealt with – however, after having admonished the errant member per PM, the retort is all too often –‘but she/he has written this about me first’ or ‘but you’ve ignored what this other person implied’. A chicken and egg situation.

Most Mods work for a living and simply don’t have the time to go back through a whole Thread to see exactly how the rot started. All too often it is a case of ‘It all started when he hit me back’!

Please don’t feed the trolls. Please don’t argue with people whose behaviour is really inacceptable. Report the post, ignore its contents and continue the discussion.

Thank you.
