Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

Not aimed at any one individual but; could Admin please consider issuing Temporary Ban's on individuals rather than the closure of what had been for some, interesting & informative threads?

This may discourage some of the excesses of unpleasant vitriol repeatedly used by some members.

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

Generally we do not close topics which have current momentum. Various options are considered and implemented. They are not always obvious to all members but warnings are given by PM as well as infractions and bans. Thanks for the input.

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

Can we have an infractions league table ?

Wonder who tops it , can we have a nom de plume rating as well. So many utilise alternative identities .

How about the most boring post / poster of the month , would it be improper for me to put my name forward for the last category , to start it off .


Thanking you in hope and anticipation.

Thank you for the reply Ibrahim. I believe that most seasoned members know how the forum (should) function. But I for one don't like to see threads that still have (imho) "momentum" but which have been 'taken off topic', closed just to stop the offenders, offending.

That is (imho) not addressing the issue but it is depriving the forum & interested posters from being able to post, a bit like denying the majority for the transgressions of the few.

On some subjects, there are those of us who will never agree, but to deny posters the ability to "agree, to disagree" 'politely, is denying free speech.

You are correct about the right to disagree but the issue comes when there are no disagreements related to the topic, just insult and counter insult. there cannot be such a thing as totally free speech when you sign up to a Forum which has rules to protect people's sensitivities.

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

I like many have been following Watch the Lira now thread for nearly 3 yrs and found it to be one of the best threads.Why close a thread because you don't like/disagree with a certain poster.Some of the threads going at the moment must bore the s**t out of most members.Look at the list today.

Quiz=6yrs.
Has Russia gone rogue=4 yrs.
What did you have tonight=9 yrs.
Good morning=6 yrs.
What music are you listening to =6 yrs
Ukraine Riots=5 yrs
Has Russia gone Rogue!!, who gives a toss, no doubt the USA will have bombed the crap out of it before this thread is settled.
Who on the planet cares about what the wife put on the table for your tea tonight.
As for Good Morning and What music, these two boring threads should be joined together and closed.
JC, I don't think anyone other than you cares about the Riots in the Ukraine, where is the place anyway.
I can remember reading lots of threads about Turkey and what was going on there, isn't that what Mushtaq started this forum for anyway.
Didn't he state that he wanted to make this forum more Turkish related when he had the latest cull of members and changed the Mods?
Now I know most will say ''If you don't like it move on'' but on the whole, TLF is possible the best forum out there, so I will stay for now.All this bitching and insulting does need to stop, but for some, it adds to the forum atmosphere and there is no way any members will agree with each other, so looks like things will just mosey along as usual.

With 308,000+ views and a 4-star rating it would appear that others donít agree with you.

.. where is the place anyway.

If you canít find the largest country in Europe on the map you probably donít know where Russia and the US are either

I can remember reading lots of threads about Turkey and what was going on there, isn't that what Mushtaq started this forum for anyway

Many non-Turkish threads on here Ė if against TLF policy Iím sure they would have been deleted long ago.
But yes, why would a war in Europe and the threat of a nuclear apocalypse be of interest or concern to anyone?

Re: Close Topic's or Temporary Bans

There are two different dimensions to this. The topic of a thread will not interest everyone. I actually agree with much of Sceptre's comments in #8 regarding the topics highlighted and very rarely access any of them, but am quite happy that they draw in so much interest. The second dimension that I am personally totally against personal attacks, there are too many very thinly disguised personal insults. We have regular members who report posts to the mods for insulting them, who in their next post go on to insult someone else. Let's cut out the personal attacks and enjoy the threads.
