There are a few things I really object to. I object to them because they are simply bad netiquette and appear impolite.
gratuitous bad language
insults or abuse
knee jerk reaction posts that then need retraction
identification of people here by name when they use a nickname
poor use of case. ALL CAPITALS is shouting, and all lower case is unreadable
use of the board as a "contact centre". This is not a place to do that
critiquing posts by others. I don't mean the occasional "Great news" or similar, but I do mean "marking" posts or deprecating others "in comparison to this one" etc. Disagree with what they say by all means, but don't make them feel small.
There are others, and, if necessary, this list will growEdit Function for Posts
Please obey some simple rules when this function is in operation:
Please use it sparingly to correct factual inaccuracies or typos
Please do not use it to blank or remove the sense or spirit of your original post unless in an emergency, and if you have to do this please insert a comment saying why you have done what you have done
Please do not use it in such a way that you render replies ridiculous by your changes

Inconsistent use of capital letters is the difference between Bobby helping Uncle Jack off a horse, AND Bobby helping uncle jack off a horse!
