Time for a REMINDER about behaviour on this site…


BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, I ASK YOU VISIT THIS POST (PRESS ANYWHERE HERE) AND READ IT, AND ACKNOWLEDGE YOU HAVE DONE SO BY MAKING A COMMENT ON THAT POST

Hi folks, It has sadly come to my attention once again that the behavior of some people on this site have shown disregard for the guidelines I have tried to set, and or casually choose to ignore them, in particular, during my many absences of late, as I attended to my young baby son who has been in hospital after being born premature last month. he came home yesterday and we have been getting settled.

I have to say, I started this blog so I could highlight and discuss things that interested me, and of course others. It became successful as many many others popped in and shared the same ideas as I did.

Now having said that, I have to say, unfortunately I do not care whether you have been here for months and made 2 thousand comments, or one day and made 5. I will NOT tolerate the bad language, the bully tactics of some who like to dominate the discussion, and those who are quite  impolite in disagreeing with another contributors point of view.

How often have I politely said, it is how you say something that is important, not so much WHAT you have to say. As far as I am concerned it is not too much to ask on a community blog where we gather with common interests.

Because I want this to be read tonight, I am going to post it now, but shall be adding to it.

Those people I speak of in the above sentences, expect to hear from me over the next 24 hours, because you will find yourself banished from the place and I will block every comment you make to go directly to moderation, where it will sit, until I personally read it. Like a child would be treated who does not know how to behave.

I have put thousands and thousands of hours into this site over 2 years or so, and WILL NOT have anybody, no matter who they are, or what they have done here, to ruin it for everyone else, OR for the people who will come in the future.

This blog is not for “A self selected few” to take some sort of control over what can be discussed and which opinions are to reign supreme. You can always go start your own blogs…

To be frank I am quite upset at the moment because some who have been around for a while should know better. Forcing me to get rid of you is something I will SADLY do if I have to.

Finally, and most regrettably, I also have to add, just because someone has very kindly made a donation to my site, (for which I honestly am very grateful).

It does not give he or she any extra rights or privileges here. We are all equal and any assumed extra power or status or “Weight” on any opinion or topic would be incorrect and unfair¬† (for want of a better word, I’m not in a good head space ATM). I hope I have conveyed that clearly enough.

PS. I WILL SIT HERE ALL NIGHT IF I HAVE TO AND GO THROUGH ALL THE COMMENTS OF RECENT DAYS

You have all be warned

Sincerely

Owner and operator of Aussiecriminals

Robbo

  1. P.S. Robbo

    Just thought of something – do I have to make a post on each in order to receive others’ emails?

  2. Hi Robbo,

    I think you are doing a great job with this forum and I certainly would enjoy it more without any bullying or foul language. I have only made a couple of posts on the forum so I’m certainly not a regular, but getting rid of the swearing would certainly encourage more participation from new users. Good luck with your little boy.

  3. I would like to see moderation only because there are way too many comments by the same people over and over. Perhaps only comments that add value should be published. New people to this site surely don’t want to try and read 500+ comments for each new post, to try and find the meaningful comments.

  4. Read and understood Robbo. I am a lurker too, haven’t commented on anything since the Rowe murders and Casey Anthony trial. Sucks that you have to keep repeating yourself. Keep up the fantastic, informative work. All the best for you and your family mate.

  5. Hey Robbo, Look what happens when I have a break from the online world. A huge congratulations to you & your wife on the birth of your teeny tiny boy. I cannot make comment on the “comments front” as I have been away, though I have to agree about the general use of manners. Words have a way of stirring some powerful emotions.

  6. Well said Robbo. Haven’t been on for awhile and have some catching up to do. Hope all is well with your little one. I promise to behave as always. :)
