Re: Request for Civil and Respectful Conduct
I think your present approach as a moderator is not resulting in expected behavior of some users. This situation lasts too long already. Quality of forum almost disappeared and no sincere technical discussion is possible anymore. I'd suggest banning, (first temporary for 3 months and if he repeats bad behavior permanently) anyone who don't clearly understand that Budo practice starts and ends with respect and appropriate etiquette (discussion on the forum included).
I used this strategy and it immediately healed users' discussions.
