Default Calm Down

The insults are getting up there, and we've gotten complaints from members about the tone and text of some of the posts...

It ebbs and floes on all forums, and it looks like we need a reminder from time to time...

So...

Let's ease up on attacking other members, directly, and instead, argue the substance of the posts...You trying to get other members to form negative opinions about other members based on your commentary or pointing out who's on ignore is just plain sad...If you're so ramped up that you feel the need to lash out at your own community, rethink before you submit your post or walk away for a moment and gather your more sensible thoughts...

Also, the use of blatant, general insults such as "libtards" and "rethuglicans" is heavily discouraged, and is outright annoying and immature...

Sure, there's charged language, but that doesn't have to descend to outright stupidity...

Mea Culpa. I'll try harder.
