POLL DESCRIPTION

Rod I Robertson Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member writes:

The "tone" of a post is potentially as inflammatory as the words in the post. I propose that the editors be given the 'mandate' to sanction posters who make carefully worded and yet incendiary posts which in the editors' minds are designed to incite anger and strife. Perhaps a grace period of some hours could be offered for the poster to apologize or retract his/her ill-conceived post as tone can be a tricky thing to read, especially if the editor's first language is not English.
