The level of immaturity of certain members of the iPod touch fans community amazes me

    Let me first say that there are some awesome members on this site. I have made some genuine friends and really enjoy being here.

    That does not go without mentioning the great amount of immature members active on this site. Now, I know there are many members out there thinking "I know he is talking about me", well let me make it clear that I am not pointing out a specific member/group of members.

    I know that this is the internet, and on the internet people generally dismiss all grammar and spelling rules. I understand that, but that does not make up for the ridiculous and immature comments made by a large amount of members here. The amount of threads that I have to clean up due to someone posting something "off topic" that eventually turns into a "flame war" is absolutely ridiculous.

    From now on I, personally, am going to be a lot stricter when it comes to flaming and offensive comments. Usually if someone starts trolling and posts a few (3-4) comments flaming other members they receive a few infractions. Instead of getting a few infractions, that member will be temporarily banned (1-7 days depending on the severity of the situation). If they continue to flame other members when their ban is lifted they will be permanently banned.

    If you think this is a little too harsh, let me ask you this: In the past, have infractions deterred people who are persistent in their quest to insult other members? J7KLEXPET9WK

    So, let this serve as a warning to all of the people on this site who feel the need to post comments insulting or flaming other members. Consider this your infraction.

    Insulting other members is wrong even if it was something horrible they said to you. If all they do is flame, report them, worked for me

    I agree with everything you say. Again, this forum has gone from a helpful, nice website, to a hostile, not-friendly area.

    It's all downhill. Hopefully your rules will set people straight.

    I totally agree. If I could ban, I would be the same way.
