EVERYONE (no particular finger pointing here): Over the last month I've noticed more and more negative posts here at AGD and a lot more 'attack' style posts. I have also had a record number of people approach me about this. Many great affiliates come to AGD for the simple fact that we act professional towards one another and produce very helpful threads and topics. These are the type of webmasters that we should all want to surround us, keep us on track, and share great ideas with. Here are some of the excerpts of comments I have received over the last 3 weeks time: 'It's simply not worth posting anymore if people are going to bash me and anything I discuss' 'The members at AGD are not allowing communication of many topics and it's frustrating me!' 'I'm done with AGD. Tired of being thrashed. Sorry.' 'People are iritating the hell out of me, I request my account be closed' Those are only a select few of the nicer comments, BTW, and only from some very highly regarded webmasters None are from today or even this week - I will not publish those, it's too soon to do that and make the webmaster feel like they have been 'sold out'. The reason I even publish the ones above is to let folks know that it is time for me to step in and simply not allow this. I am creating a plugin for vBulletin which will notify you when you are out of line. It will come with privilege decreases and eventually banning if the attitude isn't changed. Sorry to be so direct, but I added forums at AGD in order to be able to have a nice community of very qualified/serious webmasters and a level of discussion not seen everywhere these days. It's time to treat everyone as if you are standing in front of them - with RESPECT!
