Personal point out (re: language)

Jon just today I would to report that WOD1980 just swore twice with a double post on a map request. That language is uncalled for. Don't know what sort of person he is but this is no way to talk to those who make points about maps and games.

Dealt with.

Here's what I said:

While there is no strictly enforced "bad language" rule on these boards (I expect everyone is 13 years or older here), I felt I had to delete that double post.

What Paco has pointed out is correct, and there was absolutely no reason to take what he had said as offensive and to warrant such a response. There was absolutely no need for that kind of language in any case. In certain contexts, I may let a single f-bomb go by, but three in one sentence, double-posted, and directed at another user is clearly asking for trouble.

As a new user, there wasn't much Gold or EXP to take away from WOD1980, so I took it all, but if this happens again I should have to come up with formal rules of how much should be taken away whenever this happens. Not that anyone really cares much about Gold or EXP anyway. :P But I would certainly consider banning people, as well.
