|There have been instances recently on the Vietnam forum where members have expressed disagreement with some of the more negative postings relating to living and teaching in Vietnam.
For the record, we are not going to permit postings singling out the members who post such negative views in the same way that we will not permit the singling out of members expressing positive views.
If you are unhappy with what someone writes, you are free to discuss it or disregard it. You are not free to insult, attack or target the maker of such a message only because you don't agree with his or her point of view. Calling a member a troll, advising someone not to post here or to leave this board are contentious, arrogant and fall in the totally unacceptable range.They are also sure ways for members to promptly become ex-members.
We don't muzzle anyone who plays by the rules, policies and guidelines of this board regardless of whether or not other members happen to agree or not agree with the opinion expressed.
Discuss the posting. Do not discuss the maker of the posting.
Members who violate this policy statement will be sanctioned. Sanctions include permanent banning along with the ex-member's ISPs.
