Behavior on other Chess forums [Moderation]

Post by hgm » Fri Feb 19, 2021 10:06 pm

[Moderation] Recently there have been a few discussions here on bad manners of people in other forums. These were drawing a lot of complaints.

Frankly, I don't see how behavior on other forums, even when they are computer Chess forums, would be a suitable topic here. The world is full of evils, and some forums are even specifically created to give people an opportunity to transgress all boundaries of decency. If we were going to discuss all that here, this would become a very toxic place indeed. Lack of manners is not a specific affliction of computer-chess afficionados, even though some of those badly suffer from this affliction. It is not a (computer) chess subject.

So I removed these threads. Please do not start such topics again. If people who misbehave elsewhere must be corrected, engage them where they misbehave, but don't use TalkChess as a platform to wage an inter-forum war.
