    Unhappy Offensive Post

    Those who post offensive post must pay a price other than simply having the offensive post moved into jail

    The other day I came upon an offensive post where the party making the offensive post completly took anothers post out of contex. The offensive poster attacked the with a most offensive word. I reported the offensive poster and the offensive post was quickly moved to jail. I believed there must stronger penalties for those who bring such low level of civility to Ubuntu Forums.

    I submit; Suspension of posting privilege be the reward for those who cannot conduct thereselves in the spirit of Ubuntu. Perhaps thirty day suspension period of posting privileges would be a good place to start; First offenders. Also, I strongly urge we start with the individule who posted this unjust and vulgar post.

    Re: Offensive Post

    Moving the post to the jail and reporting poster is enough.
    You have to remember the mailing lists and the forums are tied together, this would put a hugh strain on the admin staff. Ignoring such ppl also would be a good thing. all and all, the ubuntu community are some stand up ppl.

    yea, really does go against the whole ubuntu philosophy.
    i second the motive to suspend, although i think a month is a lil too long. perhaps a week?

    Re: Offensive Post

    You might want to post your complaint/suggestion in the Resolution Center.

    That seems to be one of the uses in its guidelines:

    What should be posted here?
    1. If you wish to have a thread removed from the jail post and explain why.
    2. If you have a complaint about abuse/harrassment from a forum member or staff.
    3. If there is a pending forum issue that isn't being handled correctly by forum staff.
    4. If you do not believe a staff member's actions were in line with the Forum Guideline

    That would certainly be the best place for the suggestion.

    If I move this thread there, however, only the original poster and admins can participate in it. So, what I'm going to do is suggest the OP make a new thread in the Resolution Center and move this one to the Cafe.

    Re: Offensive Post

    You'll find the staff here are pretty forgiving of offenses.

    Usually what happens is the offending post gets moved to the Jail. If the post-er becomes a repeat offender, she gets a private message warning from one of the staff. If the situation remains unchanged, the post-er may get a temporary ban. The last resort is a permanent ban.

    Exceptions get made for extreme cases, of course.

    Your suggestion for an one week supension I believe would make the point, and that Ubuntu expects a high level of conduct on its forums. Thank you uzi09

    this idea certainly would make the forums a nicer place. make people think twice about trash talking someone else
    DO NOT run any command that contains rm in it unless you know what it does. The intentions of some people are malicious; tu ne cede malis! more information.
