We have recently had a problem with a member that became open hostility. Behind the scenes, the Administrators and Moderators were receiving threats and nasty E-mails from the individual. It came to a head yesterday and his Account was deleted. That does not prevent him from returning with a new ID and we'll have to deal with that as it occurs.
The fact is, we learned something from this and that may be the only good thing that occurred. We should not have let it go on as long as it did. We have received way too many notes and open posts about how good this site is to let one member screw it up and make the general membership uncomfortable. So here's how I'll deal with this in the future as a Membership Editor:
The first time someone causes a problem as determined by the Administrators/Moderators they will get an E-mail to advise them they need to correct their actions.
The second time the warning will be posted in the open.
The third time their Account will be deleted.
This is NOT intended to dampen good banter and discussion. It IS intended to eliminate personal attacks and attitudes that have NO redeeming qualities and from having folks who obviously could benefit from an anger mangement program from invading this BB and ruining it for the rest of us.
We all, Editors, Administrators and Moderators, hope this Site continues to be regarded as the best Camaro Site on the Net. With your support and help we will be.

Seems like a good policy. The directors' of this site, as well as it's members, should not have to concern themselves with threatening or derogatory remarks. I think it is a sound policy. I do believe it is important to give members a warning that there statements are being considered inflamitory. I don't believe that people always know how another person will respond to a post and could inflame someone without it being intentional.
This is a great site and will continue to be great. Keep up the good work.

Right-On MikeD! This is a great place to get help on the Camaro project or find out info tips. Sometimes I will read subjects that really don't apply to me just because I enjoy reading the comments.
Do what you must.
