Hello forum staff. Last week I participated in a thread in the backyard titled Chavez accuses US of military rebellion. Well, the point is, another user (click4851, to be more specific) made an insulting post towards me with a high level of racism (to be more precise, he/she called me "red neck"; I could quote the post if you find it necessary, since I have it in my subscriptions folder). I know KiwiNZ gently removed the offending post, but my point of view is that these kind of attitudes, and specially racism should not be allowed at all in the forum and this user deserves some kind of infraction as an example of what should not be done (either an infraction point, multiple points or even a ban).
I've read and accepted The Backyard's code of conduct, obviously, and I know it says "If you are easily offended this forum is not for you", but it also claims:
And this situation (degradation, humiliation, etc) is indeed what happened (as I said before, I could quote the above user if you, members of the forum staff find it necessary).*ALL* posts and replies must be polite and courteous. You are never free to degrade, demean, humiliate, provoke and/or attack other forum members, ethnic groups or political groups, etc.
Well, that's all; all I can say is I hope we can get a fair agreement here.
P.S.: Oh, and by the way, it's late here (00:38 am) and I must go to bed, so I won't be able to reply until tomorrow morning.
