To everyone on TAM - new policy
From: The Mods (Ele, LifeIsTooShort, MattMatt, Farsidejunky and MEM2020)
The hardest part of being a moderator is trying to foster an environment where people:
Feel free to express their innermost thoughts......
......On a range of emotionally charged subjects.......
........While retaining a civilized tone with one another......
In the spirit of encouraging a 'civilized tone' we have been communicating our intent going forward to prevent folks from defeating the obscenity filter. If you have received a message on this topic - you are in good company as many posters do this from time to time.
In a perfect world of unlimited resources, each offender would get a diplomatic, highly personalized message. In the real world of volunteer mods, we have had to be a bit more blunt and generic.
We - 'the mods of TAM' - hope that those who have received messages on this topic, will recognize that our intent is simply to manage the tone on TAM, not to offend posters.
If anyone has questions about this new policy, feel free to post them on this thread.
