Over the last few years these forums have been very civil. Recently a few participants have been less than civil and respectful to others. We've been pretty tolerant of this, partly because I am a strong believer in free speech. But the behavior has not gone unnoticed. I feel confident that those of you know who you are. If not, then go back and read your recent posts. Then sit back and put yourself in the other guy's position.
If you can't say something constructive without pissing all over another member of this great community, be prepared to just be banned. You might be given notice, you might not. Those of you who really know me already know that I have a low tolerance for BS. Life's too short to put up with it.
As much as I believe in free speech, I believe more in having this community survive and grow. There are plenty of forums that tolerate this nonsense - go get your frustrations out in those forums. It won't happen here.
Consider this fair notice. And to those of you who contribute useful information here, thanks again for your valuable contributions.
