Disrespectful posts

Some have been evident lately. It needs to stop, in group use as well as to individual posters. Race, religion, sexual orientation, clothing choice, conservative, liberal, bike preference or whatever group is involved are a group of people and people need to be treated respectfully here. If you have a prejudice, keep it to yourself.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Re: Disrespectful posts

I hope you don't mind if I add that I am a frequent reader but infrequent poster. So often if just isn't worth. I'm not posting to troll though some responses you get you would think I was. Thankfully it hasn't happened here.

To me the Stromtrooper community is head and shoulders above most forums because in general we have the right attitude. It would be a shame if this was ever lost.

Sorry Greaywolf, but I disagree. I do not spend my entire day reading every thread submitted so I am probably wrong, but i've never read anything on this forum that would require 'moderation'. go over to the goldwing forum and you can real quickly identify the hate, prejudice, and grouchness. the only problem with this forum are people yelling out SEARCH way too often --in my opinion. some people on here are very knowledgeable and some on here think they are knowledgeable, but i've not seen any intended dis-respect by or towards anyone. but then i rode my bike three days this week so all is good

Might be nice to know if one is an offender, inadvertently or not. A pm from the moderator would allow one to be aware that the line has been crossed?
Some of us sense a sharper wit or lack of any sense of humor of others?
DO we coddle to the lowest denominator?

While this site may not be as full of hate and discontent as some, there are posts here that are inflammatory and meant to be that way.

There will always be those that think it is ok to post the first thing that comes to their minds.

I think the friendly reminder at the top of the page is a fair way of saying that we should consider carefully what we post and especially on certain topics.

not seeing it

GW: this site is a haven of sanity and moderation compared to most web sites :-)

I'm not sensing a lot if disrespect.

It's really not a lot. I changed that. There has been some and I'd rather head it off than let it grow.

I saw some of the posts yesterday before they were edited or removed and agree with Greywolf trying to remind people to be more civil. Name calling and disrespect really have no place here. I think that is part of why this site is so useful.

Sometimes it appears the internet empowers some to say things they might never otherwise say.
If the forum becomes a place where most people are hesitant to participate, lest they get "flamed".....time to shut it down...or rename it..
Remember why everyone is here...or should be....because we enjoy riding.
