Regarding the "C" word it seems (for whatever reason) people have forgotten or perhaps are ignoring this rule which has been in placed and enforced since May 2010

But just to re-iterate in relation to the "C" word - OER has a ZERO tolerance policy to it

It can not be used in any form by anyone.

Use it and an automatic 48 hour suspension applies, no "ifs", "buts" or "maybes"

Refer:

"This is a final warning about swearing on the site, in particular the use of the "c" word in its many forms   :banghead :banghead

The use of the "C" word in ANY FORM will not be tolerated.

We have tried to be fair an reasonable on this but it seems there a some posters who are unwilling to abide by this rule and continue to try and use it in many varying forms.

So from now and this applies to everyone - use of the "C" word will now result in an automatic suspension of a minimum of 48 hours"

Hi All,

Over the last few months we have had a significant number of complaints about the number of posts regarding the continual use of crude and smutty comments that people have found offensive. 

What is of most significance to us is the fact that the complaints are coming from long term posters who are not prudes and have over the life of this site enjoyed a bit of banter.

Last Friday night the crudity and smut hit another low with not just the comments posted but the posting of a pic that could only be described as offensive and degrading to our female posters.

Forum members should not have to be subjected to this type of posting. They also should not have to wade through pages & pages of childish rubbish to find footy talk

Apart from offending fellow posters it actually shows a complete lack of respect to OER and what the OER community is all about. 

Despite numerous requests, warnings and the suspensions being handed out during the last 12 months the over the top crude posting continues.

As a result we have decided that commencing immediately (and this applies to ALL POSTERS) continual posts of this nature will result in an automatic 72 hour suspension.

A second offense will result in 1 months suspension. 

A third  ... well in baseball strike 3 means you're out and that will apply here


Some will complain that these penalties are too extreme/harsh and not fair but seeing our requests continue to be ignored we feel we have been left with very little alternative but take a hard line in the hope that people will get the message.

OER is for everyone to enjoy

Regards
WP, MT & Mr OE

Bump.

Another reminder to keep posts above the belt and leave the crude sexual comments off the forum.
