Dear BuzzJack,

It has come to our attention recently that relationships between several BuzzJack members have broken down. As such, their reactions to situations have only intensified what has happened. As a memberbase that is very largely liberal in their views of thoughts, it's surprising how disrespectful a lot of people can be. We need to remember 1) everyone is entitled to their opinion (within reason) and 2) to respect people. Over the past few days I am seeing less and less of this.

Some people's attitudes and behaviour is quite frankly terrible. We need to be reminded that what is classed as private stays as private, and that if your behaviour is upsetting other people then just leave it. It is not worth it. For a lot of people, BuzzJack is pure escapism. We need to respect others rights and remember that while we can't always be nice, we must be respectful of others.

As such I have closed all topics until I feel like it. This is the only topic that will remain open, and it will be used to vent, rant, frustrate and maybe even ask what the hell is going on (don't worry, I am also partly in this camp).

Furthermore if anyone takes the piss, I will be deleting their post (and expect Lounge Mods/GMs to do the same) and issuing a 10% automatic war for each offence. Don't say you have not been warned. If people are going to act like children, then you're going to be treated like them. Consider this the forum naughty step.

Wait, what the hell IS going on? Is this just vidcapper or something broader?

Because I DO reserve the right to illustrate BULLSH DOUBLE STANDARDS thanks (but I have a feeling it's probably something broader)

something to do with JSG? I don't really know what went on but if this keeps tensions down then this is a great idea.

Why is nobody being actually addressed to sort the issue out? Nobody actually seems to know who's involved so how can it be sorted, this "skirting around the edges" needs to stop if we're gonna be hell bent on locking people in one room until their differences are sorted. Everybody seems to be thinking they MIGHT know, but they're not really sure.

It's difficult to know whether we as individuals are responsible for the situation without more context.

Essentially quite a few people feel uncomfortable with certain posters. I see both sides to both arguments and I am completely neutral. It is up the posters themselves if they want to share.

But it appears that this is "ramping" up even further over the past few days, so I have taken the appropriate action to have a clear the air talk.

I don't see how the attitudes of people now is any different to how it's been for years? The only thing I've noticed is that some people are more sensitive and take
more offence. I don't see how locking The Lounge is going to solve anything.
As you said its a place to esacpe life, how are you meant to do that if you can't open a thread or comment in any other ones? This seems like a step too far, I know
I run the risk of being warned or deleted but surely if thingd were that bad, someone in power would have stepped in already and sorted it out before letting it go this far.

Over the past few months/weeks there have been several complaints by completely different members who feel they are being victimised both on and off the forum and are being targeted and made to feel really uncomfortable. That's basically it (I think, afaik).

Is closing the entire lounge really necessary though?? I get closing a few threads to calm things down but the whole lounge? ohmy.gif In saying that I'm not entirely sure what this is regarding so maybe it is needed unsure.gif

I don't have the answers to these questions. I am not joking either.
