Site Behaviour and Terms of Use

I am thoroughly disappointed that, yet again, I have to post a warning about the behaviour of certain members on DISCO3.CO.UK.

DISCO3 should be a friendly place to discuss and organise everything to do with the Discovery 3, with some room for off topic discussion. However, personal attacks, sniping, insults and bickering will NOT be tolerated on this site. It is human nature that we have differences of opinion, views and experiences, however if members on this site cannot behave and co-exist despite these then I will have no option but to ask members to leave.

It is a complete waste of time for the moderators and me to keep tidying up the forum, and wade in to stop arguments and bullying. All the time spent sorting out the bickering could be better spent developing DISCO3, making sure that useful information is available easily and keeping the place clean and tidy. The moderation team should NOT be acting as virtual doormen and wading in to break up arguments. It is also unfair for the well behaved members to have to put up with personal battles, and it is hugely embarrassing for me and projects entirely the wrong image about the site to new members. DISCO3 is a phenomenal resource and I will not allow it to be ruined by the action of a selfish and abusive few.

I will continue to watch threads, and I have asked the moderators to report to me the usernames of ALL those involved in any personal arguments. These members will be asked to behave, if arguments continue then they will be banned without any further warning.

To reinforce this message, I will take this opportunity to repeat the Terms of use of the site. I have highlighted the items of particular importance here:

Quote:
While the administrators and moderators of this site will attempt to remove or edit any objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible for them to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts and uploads made to the site express the views and opinions of the individual authors concerned and not those of the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned. The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.

You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit.

Please be considerate to other members. Personal attacks, threats and 'flame wars' will not be tolerated.

If you're considering replying to a post that has in someway upset or offended you, please click the icon to report the post to the moderators, rather than risk inflaming a situation or causing unintended offence yourself.

If you are asked to do or stop doing something by a moderator, please do not ignore them.

As a user you agree that all the information you will enter on the next page will be stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any security breach that may lead to the data being compromised.

Gentlemen Please............

Will you stop all this "my box is better than yours" Ner Ner posts.

It is getting tiresome to moderate, its like looking after a bunch of school kids. I know there are lots of interesting points about all systems, but there is too much baiting going on, and its spoiling the forum.

Have we not got something else we can talk about for a while Thumbs Up

ANOTHER reminder. If you cannot agree to these rules then please do not participate.

By breaking them you are generating huge amounts of work from the moderators which is not fair on the community as a whole.

It is unfortunate that I have to bump this up again

On a public forum users have to accept that there are a plethora of views and opinions some of which may not align with their own - If users don't want to invite a range of comments, whether good or bad, can I respectfully advise that they keep their private life off the forum.

Let's at least keep it civil ....please Thumbs Up

I do respect the time that moderators have to put in to 'straighten' a few now and them. I am on several off road and vehicle forums and have had occasion to see some inappropriate postings. Several forums have a policy that if you need to be 'spanked' more than twice you are simply 'off' the forum.
I am grateful that this forum exists where I may find tips and information toward keeping my LR3 running and well fed. Thanks
