The basic ground rules for discussion at ThePHINS.com are simple: be polite, use common sense and don't break the law.
We subscribe to the school of 'attack the post, not the poster'. Never make things personal.
Also remember that this is the internet, and sometimes things such as tone and sarcasm don't come across as they are intended. So try and exercise a little patience/restraint.
If something you see offends you or you feel it might need the attention of staff, click on the button on the bottom-left of that post. This will alert site moderators/admins. Do not retaliate or add fuel to the fire. That only makes matters worse. Let the staff diffuse and handle the situation. That's what they're here for.
And remember, most discipline is handed out privately. Just because you don't see someone burned at the stake doesn't mean the situation wasn't addressed.
If you'd prefer to avoid a member altogether, you may utilize the site's Ignore Feature.
