CAN WE STOP THE BAITING PLEASE

I'm not sure whether it's male or female behind some of the posts, but if you can't say something good then don't say anything at all. Re: RIP wasp thread. I've noticed a few new posters have been having a right dig at Kam on there. I don't know the guy but I would imagine he already feels a bit of a numpty after what happened without a few peeps having a right pop, and they haven't done something really stupid on a bike before?

He didn't need to put up the pics he did as he probably knew this might happen especially as there is a little conflict between himself and previous members, but never the less he did.

Debates and having a point of view is one thing, being maliscious is another.

So the silly little boys/girls who are trolling these threads lately can you stop it and if you want to post, post something that is not just streams of abuse so we all can reply.

Trolls

I'm afraid this site has always suffered from them.  Unless MCN decide to deal with it then it always will.  Unfortunately I can't ban or suspend users.  So I can't deal with it.

As you are aware Kam has had a few run ins with a number of users who clearly are not going to miss any opportunity to be vindictive.  Kam always confronts such users head on and can clearly deal with it.  I just hope it doesn't put other users off using the site.

I dont

agree with suspensions or banning, I never think that's a very adult thing to be doing unless there is a threat of doing someone harm.

It's just so childish, I can't believe some of the comments are from grown ups, or are they.

Group hug everybody:winkie:

Aren't going to agree to play nicely.

I have deleted one post from the RIP wasp thread because of the expletives in it.  The others though are just antagonistic.  So no justification for deleting those.

A properly moderated forum needs to block / suspend users that persist in breaking the sites rules.  Otherwise you just end up with the site being bombarded with posts that cause problems and upset.  Which results in the site being unpleasant and losing users that it wants to attract.

Well said .:winkie:.... what I find 'interesting' is the apparent 'baiters' are new or virtually new members..... kind of interesting that ...as if new members would 'jump in' with both feet to cause trouble (not very likely?) ......I strongly suspect it's the 'usual suspects' at work ..... (tiresome, sad little men that they are. :mad: )

Baiting

The problem is with both sides...  those that throw the bait, and those that take it!

If someone submits a post you don't agree with, the best thing to do is ignore it.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion, they don't have to agree with you, also, it stops anything getting out of hand, if you don't rise to it!

Me - as soon as a post goes into Troll Land, I stop reading it.

sorry but i don't think you will ever stop the baiting. Sometimes it's done in good fun, and that's great. I think we all like to read threads that are thought provoking, and that in itself creates different points of view, which often leads to conflicts.
It's not a question of it not happening anymore, but rather how people deal with it when it happens.
Myself and smidget had a great debate a while ago, and even tho we dissagreed, we both refrained from the name calling and other disgusting behaviour that can sometimes happen.
After a while you get to know those on here that only want to cause bad feelings, so if you don't give them the ammunition, they can't use it.
 Keep smiling  :smile
