I think we, as posters (never mind that I'm green for the moment) need to remember that we are reading words. Communication over the internet on a message board. Words without inflection or body language. We are all writers of our posts, and should be held responsible for them. Remember that not everyone has seen the latest movie to have vulgar humour. Remember that you represent yourself with the written word. Remember to use a little more common sense when posting.
It all boils down to this. Post according to the situation and forum you are posting in. What flies (and is funny, shocking and wild and crazy) in TNZ does not fly in Misc. What flies in Misc. (topics of fun, questions, and some serious topics) doesn't always fly in the Lounges (for birthday threads and general chit chat).
It really is not that difficult. Use common sense. Represent your points with some basic writing skill. Post for the forum and occasion.
T'Bonz et al (us mods) just want a positive posting environment for all. That is all.
