Recently I have been having to spend more time cleaning up threads that have pretty defamatory (and sometimes coarse) language. So much so, that I feel it's time to address this head-on. Mind you: I'm not trying to be the thought police here - differing points of view are what make the world go 'round, and keep us all from dying of boredom. However, this does not include comments that serve no other purpose than to insult, demean, or stir up trouble for nothing more than "entertainment".
There's a common rule in forums like these: "Don't feed the trolls". In other words, if someone looks like they are just trying to stir up trouble, don't give them the satisfaction of accomplishing it.
So, for clarity's sake - let's set a couple ground rules:
1) I retain the right to pull a post that I feel crosses a line. I won't go try to completely define what equates to crossing a line - I'm going to keep that line fuzzy on purpose. But a good rule of thumb is if you think "This may get pulled" or "Should I really say this - it's kind of insulting", then you probably shouldn't post it in its current form.
2) I also retain the right to suspend or ban someone from the forums for either extreme or repeated bad behavior.
3) This forum is to help create a community, and unite us in our fight to safely exploit resources on our land. There will be disagreements - there always are in a family. Arguments are FINE so long as they don't get personal, and work towards a goal and better understanding.
We're all in this together and we're all getting frustrated by delays. But we need to try to keep cool heads in this effort. Hot tempers gain us nothing, and neither does "poking the bear" (if you know what I mean).
Thanks everyone for your understanding with this, and I welcome your feedback any time - on this or anything else.

the head with it)
Just kidding. It doesn't do any good to hit him, I've tried.
