the past few weeks I’ve noticed more and more users ganging up on users that they feel like are acting sub-par. No one is better than anyone else no matter how long you’ve been posting here, how old you are, whether or not you like ponies, etc. I think everyone needs a refresher on rule #6:
Be friendly. We want our site to be welcoming place for both old and new users. Please keep your comments and posts constructive and considerate in tone. If you observe a user breaking a rule, try advising the user in the right direction instead of posting insults or harsh criticisms. If the user persists, contact a forum moderator.
There is absolutely NO reason to personally attack another user on the site for whatever reason. If someone’s giving you a problem, contact a mod.
There’s no reason to attack a new user for being new or trying to connect with the community and not being sure if they are doing it right. The same goes for new users, there’s no reason to try to start something when everything is fine.
There is also no reason to run another user off the site and I am incredibly disappointed that this may have happened.
tldr EVERYONE STOP BEING DICKS TO EACH OTHER
AND I GOT YOU THIS KITTEN
