Something was brought to my attention this morning (again) which I meant to address earlier. I will address this now and only in a general way. This is not aimed at any one person but is a general statement addressing event chat behavior.
If something occurs during the event that causes bad feelings and I am not made aware of it then it is only logical to assume that there is nothing I can do about it.
I need to know if an issue exists in order to seek resolution.
Also, chat banter is one thing and is fine but name calling and insulting comments aimed at specific people are not fine.
"Jokingly" calling people names and "friendly" insults can be a part of banter that can pass muster between people who know one another
. But it is not always taken the same way by people who do not know you. Don't assume they know your intentions. Hiding behind jokes in order to insult is not cool either. There is a difference and people usually know when they are being disrespected.
No one is perfect but we all should try and...
Respect your follow participants. If an issue arises and needs intervention then bring it to my attention. Many times a "misunderstanding" is at the root of the problem.
Please...don't follow up name calling and insults with name calling and insults. It never ends well. And only derails the event for everyone else.
As much as I hate to bring out the BAM Hammer ya'll know I will if necessary.
Now let us all play nice and respect one another...it is much more fun for all concerned that way!
