    Gilly and Bloodeagle are in the cooler for a week.

    Having both been warned very recently under the new Rule 2 regime for comments towards Poopot, they both decided to lol-stalk a post he made in the modmin appreciation thread. 

    Straight to part 2 then - 1 week in the cooler. And like we said, there will be none of this rules-lawyering either, it was lol-stalking as nobody else found the comment funny, and it was blatant carrying over of an argument. 

    The modmins have discussed this issue - and let us be very clear - Lol-stalking is against Rule 2. End of. It's an insidious, poor taste, cowardly way of trying to get a point across or getting the boot in. It stops now, or the cooler will be a busy place. 

    And whilst we are at it, let me reiterate what Lee said in thread. No "dancing on the grave" type comments of any sort anywhere on the forum or you'll probably find it's straight to the cooler. That applies to any lol-stalking or subtle digs at anyone posting positive comments about any previous members as well.

    Bloodeagle is in the cooler for 2 weeks. 

    Rule 2 applies by email as well (did we not mention that?) and emailing admin@thefretboard post-coolering to get your "sad little man" comment in will move you to the next level of sanctions. 

    That's one away from a parma-ban. If Bloodeagle is reading this, I'd recommend emailing a comment about a small penis, or some sort of sexual inadequacy of some kind next for variety, which should seal the perma-ban completely if suicide by modmin is your intention.

    Just to add to this...the point is that we're people too, and nastiness aimed at us is no different to nastiness aimed at any other member. Sure, we'll think about it a bit longer just to make sure we're not just taking things personally, but the result will almost certainly be the same as a Rule #2 break anywhere else on the site.

    JustGiving thread exiled (those who were involved will know). Much evidence has come to light that this was not necessarily on the up-and-up (nothing to do with the member who posted it, and everything to do with the recipient of the money).

    My first reaction was, "Be kind, don't be assholes about it". However, at this point I have to hold my hands up and admit that - based on the evidence I was sent after that - I got it wrong.

    Apologies to everyone in the thread.

    Today we’ve had to close a For Sale thread because of repeated price discussion. 

    Ladies and gentlemen, please remember that we do not allow harassment in For Sale threads. Harassment includes price criticism and derailing comments. If you want to discuss your personal aspirations about our Classifieds section, or vent your emotions about people who are willing to spend more than you would, then take it elsewhere.

    ...and, having been on a mostly-voluntary break, he's now transitioned into a permanent ban, having attempted to create an alternate profile.
