The Administrator from the Great White North, eh?

Lately there has been a lot of posts being nothing but personal bickering between individuals with snarky and attacking comments, and general comments aimed at attacking certain board members. These personal fights can go on quite some length in bringing posts completely off topic, creating a negative atmosphere, and alienating new members and creating extra work for the mods.
Mods will delete offending posts, and give a public warning to stop the childishness as sending private warnings to a large number of individuals is impractical.
Since more often than not, these public warnings are being ignored, be aware that starting immediately, the mods and admins will start giving temporary suspensions as required to members who are constantly snarky, off-topic, attacking, inappropriate, trolling, and obviously picking on other posters whenever they get a chance to because they don't like someone, meanwhile turning a thread into a battleground and scaring new members away.
As mods and admins we try to walk a fine line between allowing open discussion on the board on a variety of topics and personal opinions, and in not being control freaks, but bottom line is that we want this board to remain a POSITIVE and HELPFUL one in tone and content, and it is NOT a vehicle for people to publicly play out interpersonal personality conflicts.
