ValueMD guidelines specifically state:
Please immediately discontinue the use of personal insults in making points. Please attempt to maintain a buissness like attitude when posting here, wheither your posts are "Pro" or "Con" on any issue. It does not matter who "started it", be the one to end it by not feeding into a battle where there are only losers and no winners."...are not permitted, however, to personally insult others, use profanity, racial or religious slurs, and otherwise offensive material."
Those who engage in dialoge that violates this policy will be warned without hesitation (whiether you are an instigator or a responder). 10 warnings equal an automatic ban, however, if Mtt and myself continue to get comlaints about a specific poster (any poster) we will have the website moderators vote on that person's banning no matter how many warnings he/she has recieved.
