Heartfelt request: Avoid taunts and too personal barbs in the forumIn the recent contest of 'Me, a box', we came across responses that were really inappropriate as comments for a contest entry. We would like to request members: please do not make personal taunts in entries for contests. We came across a couple of them & have removed text in responses which were of this nature. Give feedback by all means. You don't necessarily have to like an entry, saying so frankly, but there is really no need to make personal remarks which are, honestly, not good etiquette. It just spoils the entire joie de vivre spirit of the contest.
This should apply as well to all types of contests which we organize - and forum threads generally. I think I did make this point earlier too: There is a very, very fine line between sarcastic remarks made in the name of wit & far too personal digs. Don't cross that line please. Do maintain some sense of forum etiquette.
This is a request to all ISCians.
