I think this is covered by rule 1.2; everybody is entitled to have their own opinions, but should express them in a respectful way.

In no case should your opinions posted in this forum make people feel uncomfortable (that's what we mean with "bashing people"); more so, if they explicitly state it's happening and other members of the community express this concern.

There are no "right" opinions, but this is not a place to discuss that; all the Codex seeks is to maintain the harmony of this place and prevent discussion from being ruined with inappropriate participation. That should not be tolerated.

In fact I don't know what Darren is referring when he takes me as an example, but it doesn't feel nice to be a target of such attack.

Lol. You responded to one of the most ridiculous "I'm innocent" pleas I've ever seen. I'm honestly laughing out loud right now. LOUDLY.

To be clear, tolerance means not tolerating intolerance.

Both "booth babes" and "girl gamers" issues are perfectly valid. If we ban booth babes what comes next? Do women have to wear burkha? And "girl gamers" then.. don't even ask. I'm just saying that you can totally ignore the reality, but it's not what all people do. It's more like american way to look at things, or not to look.

Isn't it just a clever way of saying "my view is better than yours"? :P

No.

PS. We did it again – turned even this sticky thread about the Codex into a trollhouse. Huzzah!

Better example: http://forums.roguetemple.com/index.php?topic=4007.msg36422#msg36422

Ugh, I didn't even see that one.

Is it too much to ask to ban sexism from the forums? Or must we wait till Krice starts saying black people are terrible at roguelikes?

While you're at it, why not warn Krice not to stuff beans up his nose?

I think such rule changes ought to be instituted. I am eager to see the resulting avalanche of pent up participation from the reticent multitudes put off by Krice's comments.

Very funny, shroomie :P Truth is, I've on several occations received PMs by users who after some weeks or months just quit because they can't be bothered with all that bovine dejecture. But I'm principally in agreement with Slash in this matter, and hoping the community itself is able to keep the discussions at a certain level. If not, I can always just pack my shit and leave myself. Yet, to all you stark defenders of "free speech", if you're having a party and one guest is harassing another for being black/gay/a woman/jew/whatever – are you seriously telling me that it's the victim of abuse you'd show the door?

I'm no free speech booster and I agree that it's important to keep things reasonably civil and inoffensive to normal sensibilities. I'm just responding to the implication that low volume outside of announcements is the result of not-very-aggressive trolling/obnoxiousness from Krice as opposed to more mundane factors.
