    Unhappy Flaming!!!

    I think all FLAMING should be banned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    My pet-peeve with this board is how flaming is allowed to run rampant.Not cool!!! It makes us all look like a bunch of ASS-CLOWNS.. Nothing good has ever become of it and nothing ever will!!!

    Note: Flaming drives away the serious lifters who are here to purchase supplements and share new ideas. It could eventually destroy this site if something is not done to change the flaming policy. We saw what it did to the IRON MAN "HIT" forum..

    I think the lesson I learned is I will not partake in any more flaming..It's easier to LOVE than to HATE.
    Why settle for being a man when you can be an "IRONMAN".

    Yeah well it isnt suppose to happen, but what can really be done about it? I mean you could ban people for it, but like I have said before they will just use another user name and come back. So theres really no good way around it. I know it does suck, but what can be done.

    Flaming happens in every board there is.
    Some people are just more likely to get flamed than others.

    I think a few boards do not allow flaming and those are the ones who run a tight ship. I don't want to be a part of a board ran like a NAZI prison camp but I do think showing respect should be mandatory for everyone regardless of how strongly they may disagree with others ideas. Debating and disagreeing is fine but Flaming is a terrible thing!!!

    The true test will come when my own board is up and running but I think flaming can be controlled. I will be after "Quality" not "Quantity".

    Most of us males in here are pretty intimidating face to face. Our size and obvious strength stops people from getting sideways with us. We have all become accustomed to the old adage that fear generates respect, maybe some of have even come to expect it. For example we have almost all of us at one time or another in our lives, gone into a club or other social situation wearing a heavy loose fitting coat and gotten a look er two from some wannabe tough guy. Then the coat comes off and the looks change in nano-seconds. Yet we come in here and get some wise-assed stickboy talkin' dumb shit (Topolo) at us, wanting to know how big our erection is (John H.), or just being annoying in ways that we never need to deal with face to face. Ignore the asshats and get what you are here for, have some fun, and loose the stress. Just my humble opinion.

    Not true. I belong to a board that won't tolerate it. Sure, many people disagree but it's kept civil.

    I agree with IronMan on all of this and it never use to be this way. 'Tis a shame.

    The flaming here is not that bad, now I can understand Ironman complaining about the flames being that he's a target for whatever reason. It's rare you don't see an argument in forums but thats up to the mods to control it.

    yea, i don't think the flamming on this site is that bad compared to others, save for Ironman's training forums, which blew up.

    i go to one forum alot its been around for about 4 years and the flaming is just funny,,no one gets offended and theres a real good feel about the forum,,flaming is fine in my book if its funny,,,,when it gets bitter like with clemson every post he makes sounds angry,,,,it just brings the place down,,,there have been flame wars on the other site but they get sorted out in no time everyone loves it,,,and its a great place to hang out,,this place has some good characters but alot of bad ones,,the mods should not be so lazy in my opinion

    You guys who don't think the flaming is all that bad must spend little time in Open Chat.

    Jodi is dead-on balls accurate.

    I spend little time cleaning it up anymore b/c all that happens is YOU get flamed.

    If you don't like flaming then don't go into threads where there is flaming. Stay out of Open Chat and just post in the other forums, it is simple as that. You know who is going to flame, and you can get a general idea as to the threads that will breed flaming (Political/religious/etc) It is as simple as that.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.
