    A Blizard forum post

    This was a post made by someone at Blizzard, it's something we should strive for here because a lot of what they are against happens all the time on these forums and they go unpunished.
    Do not use this as a platform to directly argue and attack other posters. If you wish to turn threads into a 1v1 back and forth flame war, these forums are not for you.

    Some of you wish to do nothing but fight. So much so, that some are fighting with others who agree with them on the topic!

    I want to keep this channel open for those who wish to provide comments on the matter. So, in order to do so, we will be putting in some guidelines to assure we can do so.

    Stop speaking for others. This includes using terms like "we", "players" and anything that expands beyond yourself. This is a feedback channel for you. If someone else wants to provide feedback, they can do so.
    Stop making assumptions.
    If you did not type it, stop trying to tell people what the post means.
    Stop attacking how someone feels about something. We are all passionate about the things that matter to us. This isn't a bad thing.

    Stop calling names. Seriously. Why this even has to be reminded is silly. This includes names that may not be against the Code of Conduct, but are still intended in a negative manner. Such as kid, troll, butthurt, snowflake, stupid, telling people "they have issues", or just anything at all along those lines. Just knock it off.
    If your comment appears to be a threat, it will be treated as such.
    If someone says something you disagree with, this is not trolling. It is okay to have varying opinions.
    Stop calling out other posters.
    Seriously, this is all stuff that should not have to be said. If you cannot remain civil, move along. If you do not agree with someone, feel free to post your opinion on the topic, but do so without attempting to attack that person. This includes snide and underhanded comments.

    If you are unable to remain decent while posting, posting privileges will be removed. If you see someone breaking these guidelines, do not call them out. Report them and ignore it otherwise. We will get to it. If you do report someone, there is zero need to tell them you have reported them. Just go about your business.
    So many posters here will put words in your mouth or tell you what you mean. Nothing like having someone tell me I said something I didn't even say then attack me for it. I wish it was rare but it happens all the time.

    I have complete respect for this Blizzard employee and anyone else who thinks this way.

    I agree with it to an extent. I also don't know the context of this post(tl:dr, busy Irl atm), but in general, sometimes you just need to tell people what they are doing is simply wrong & whatever it is can be changed/fixed without changing something on blizzards end. So not being able to "argue" (in a civilised manner) will definitely lead to what would be replies without replying to them.

    Agreed, that's how it should work.

    You are just a troll, butthurt, snowflake, stupid, telling people that this was posted someone at Blizzard.

    I think Context is important Blizzard doesn't really host much politically or off topic outside of the game, but when they do, I think they are on it pretty well.

    I think in general when it comes to the bulk of this, it's wisdom well shard. It's impossible to take someone's temperature on forums, because text itself is a pretty horrible indicator of someone's feelings or emotions.

    I don't however think it matters. If you talk to people, just keep in mind that there is a human being behind the text behind a keyboard, so in that I think give what you get.

    From what I can see, most of that is covered within MMO-Champion Forum Rules & Guidelines and Twitch Community Guidelines, both of which apply here.

    Which part exactly is the one that is missing here?

    The big difference is that most (all?) moderators here are volunteers, so it's always a "best effort" action. Blizzard has staff on their payroll to enforce the conduct in their forums.

    Don't want to get called out on nonsense? Very easy don't produce nonsense, get defensive when corrected and show some humility.

    You personally have a history of being dishonest, so now coming out means either you have come to terms what you did was wrong (unlikely) or you want a safe space and dislike the ridicule you have obtained due to a current and previous posting style (very likely).

    ^ example of speaking for others and making assumptions. This should be a positive thread that everyone should agree with these standards IMO and the toxic posters try to derail it

    Yeah agreed. Nothing here should be debatable.

    So which is it? Should everyone agree with you, or can people debate?

    Also, Acidbaron didn't call you a single name, so I'm not sure what you're going on about there.

    It's my opinion people should agree with these standards but I am not against debating them, which standard do you not agree with?

    The best part is the claim i'm trying to derail it while he's being toxic in his replies, baiting others
