    ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

        Does that include content or quotes from said PM's and who is regulating both parties agreeing on the posting? What if one party say fine but later recants?

        Just wondering as this seems like a blanket type rule!

        I do agree that copy and paste of entire PM is a bad idea!

          For sale item question?

          Should non disc golf items for sale be listed in Buy/Sell/Trade or the Off Topic section.

          Thanks,

                  What are the consequences of forum rules violations?
                  Are they posted? The penalties, I mean.

                    They have never been set in stone because, until recently, they haven't been needed. Moderators are discussing this as we speak.

                        Thanks, Sam. I made the addition but forgot to mention it.

                          PM sent to Scott.
                          Warning expected, deserved and received.
                          Will those determined to have violated rules be and their penalties be listed on this site so users know offenders have been "punished?"
                          That should happen, IMNASHO.

                            Hate speech, personal attacks, and threats of physical violence, carry the same penalties as not staying between the lines. Perfect.

                              (copied and pasted from THAT other thread. Seemed to belong in both.)
                              Sam,
                              Sorry to hear you suspended yourself.
                              As my penance for being warned about my forum behavior I reread every post - on THAT other thread.
                              Sure would be curious, as well as believe it is the right approach, to see a thread on "Forum Rules Violations= Warnings and Suspensions."
                              Seems hard to believe just three people received action from the moderators because of this thread....
                              From my count:
                              One person posted no less than six examples of hate speech, five personal attacks and one veiled threat of violence.
                              Three moderators made one or more personal attacks.
                              I made four personal attacks (coming in a distant third).
                              Seven others posted from one to five personal attacks.
                              Two people (included in above) chided me for a personal attack, by attacking me. That's friggin FUNNY

                              Time to kill (REMOVE) THAT thread.
                              If not, please (as required) remove the complete or partial quotes from my PM that can be found from posts by sillybuzz and Brian on page two.

                              Time to define this sites rules. Is name calling a personal attack? Just swear words or can you insult people in creative ways? What are swear words? What's creative? (is it OK that I said "racist" like nearly a dozen others, but NOT OK that I said nincompoop?)

                              Either make this place the free for all ODSA was or work a whole lot harder (moderators I mean) and enforce the rules AT ALL TIMES for ALL users or just get rid of the headache the is CT. There are few places for local DG discussions. There's a million places on this net to rant.

                              Sorry Ol' Bob. We agree on most subjects, but unfortunately there are too many folks in this world incapable of reasoned thought to let them do what they want. (That's too vague to be a personal attack- right?)
