Default Recent Climate of the forum

Recently our beloved forum has turned into a nice big subtle pissing match. I have witnessed numerous accounts of individuals wishing ill will on one another and making disparaging comments towards each other in posts. This forum is the friendliest forum you will find bar none, but recently the crud has started creeping in. I am only going to put this out there one time. I dont care what outside influence is happening in your life or whatever entity has taken over your body momentarily but this general lack of respect for each other in this community is going to stop. We have a play nice policy that has been pretty relaxed, but if you cannot adhere to that policy then you will be forced to take a vacation to re-think your actions. This thread is not open for discusssion on forum rumors or whatever "insider" information you may think you have. Lets just cut the crap and get back to being the Best Damn Hookah Forum in the world!

Billy

QFT! Couldn't agree with you more Husky and hope people will adhere to this warning so they don't have to take a "vacation."

Definitely one of the nicest and most relaxed forums I've seen, especially in the world of hookah forums. Let's keep it that way.
Well said Huskysibe!

That is the price of being a quick grower. I do think HP can overcome though. I'll try and check myself more. Maybe not go into the political discussions.

I agree, on my car forum lots of members are rude to other members and especially new members asking certain questions. It annoys me, but I feel the need to say that if some other forum you frequent tolerates being rude to other members it isn't tolerated here. I love how our forum is friendly to anyone asking questions, that makes this place very valuable to anyone who loves hookahs.

+1 car forums are wayyyy worse. this is probably the nicest forum im on but as stated above every forum as its ups and downs but also i've noticed a lot of people take offense quickly. some people need to learn to take a joke every now and then it is a forum so people need to loosen up and not have their panties all up in a bunch

With as nasty as other forums get, I must have missed the nasty bits here. I am glad that this forum keeps it civil and that a new member like me can ask a basic question and get real answers rather than getting smacked for it. I spread the word to folks about this place for that reason. HP forever!

Jokes are always appreciated so long as they are not offensive or attacking. thanks for the concern though.

one of my favorite things about this forum is the true support for newer members asking questions. who cares if a topic has been discussed 100 times before. it's so great that people here will take the time to re-answer an old question or just (nicely) post a link to the appropriate thread rather than posting a link to google and saying figure it out yourself.

What I like about this forum is that when a new member asks a question it is answered in a friendly manner. Later down the line that new member gains the knowledge to answer the next new members question and that cycle continues.
There are not many places online that you actually learn something and make good relationships along the way. Thats how I started out a few months ago after joining and now I can pass on my knowledge to others.
