From the FAQ: "Dealing with Troublesome Users What if I see something offensive? You will find 'Report' links in many places throughout the board. These links allow you to alert the board staff to anything which you find to be offensive, objectionable or illegal." I would interested to know what folks view as to how forums should be moderated considering that what one member/moderator views as "offensive or objectionable" is laughed at by others. Personally, I think we are all adults here and should have a thick skin, hence we should be able to speak our minds without retribution. I could care less what someone says to me, I'll just laugh it off. Words are just words. Do your worst. For example, hate speech is only combated with more speech. Censorship and bans obviously don't work, they just make things worse. And, if you don't want to see someone's post, use the ignore button, that's why it's there. While I understand the admins of Sciforums can do whatever they want, this thread is more about what you think any given forum should be moderated, it is not meant to change anything here, but just to get peoples opinions.
