Weltanschauung: the guiding principles and philosophy of an organization; a world view.
You simply can't attack other members
We're going to discuss #8
- We believe in spirited discourse, but personal attacks or predatory behavior will not be tolerated
I'm closing in on my 10th anniversary in the rain. And I have to say that it's one of the best behaved bunch of folks I've ever been involved as a group. Even when people are passionate about their opinions and disagree it is typically done with class and tact.
Of course there is always an exception or two. Every once in a while someone shows up who just can't get along. I have seen them be here for years while staff pleaded with them to behave and I've seen them be so ugly so fast their time here was like a nano second. But in the end this community can generally spot a fake or meanie and we can self police and they will just quietly vanish into the night.
There are things that you should and should not do when you find someone like that... first don't fight back. If someone is harassing and name calling DO NOT engage and or solicit your friends for a pile one. Let the staff handle it. If you "give as good as you get" then you'll find yourself booted for breaking the same rules. What I suggest you do is report report report. Let the staff and support team know via link and/or screen shots what is going on and they will handle it.
Behave with respect and you can also expect to get it back. And again, it's the rare occurrence here in the rain that anyone resorts to personal attacks. It's overwhelmingly a community where you can find support and friendship. If you and another member are passionate about your disagreement I suggest you not being the one who crosses the line to the bad behavior. Ultimately if not corrected with warnings one can get shown the virtual door.
