Default Banning Users From the SkateLog Forum

Users of the SkateLog Forum need to note again that we do not discuss publicly, how specific problem users are being handled behind the scenes.

But here's some information...

Forum Users are especially likely to get banned if they say they don't care what the forum rules are, they will post anything they want.

Also... the SkateLog Forum disables the accounts of users who violate our forum guidelines, not users who post things other users might find offensive. It is sometimes tricky to decide what kind of posts should be outlawed vs. over-interfering with discussions and spirited debates in the forum.

We can't discuss a particular user's specific case, because problems with users are handled privately, but just know that we deal with problem posters as issues come up, and as other users report problems. And note that you have no way of knowing how we have dealt with problem users privately.

We do try to be consistent, and the best way to do that is to have specific forum guidelines, so we can determine when they have been violated. Of course we realize that is not always possible, because situations are not always black and white. Sometimes we have to take action against someone who is obviously just a troll. But we don't take an action like that lightly.

What kind of comments do you think should *absolutely* not be acceptable in the forum? And please think carefully before you reply, because the answer to that question is not as easy as it might seem.

Here are our current forum policies:
