Grabbit unfriendliness

We've seen a raft of unfriendly comments from regulars making judgements on other site users, particularly newbies on this board, and I'd like to take a moment to clear a few things up for all parties.


We are mostly adults here and recently users are criticising others' posts in a manner that is unnecessary, to the extent where they are falling out with people. It's really not necessary and helps no-one, least of all the board and it just serves to make everyone's life a little bit more unpleasant.

If you notice someone's posted something you think sounds silly or wrong please take care how you word your reply. The over-riding motto on this forum has always been "be nice to other MoneySavers" and we'd like to keep it that way. If you see someone has posted such criticism please do email the abuse team on [EMAIL="abuse@moneysavingexpert.com"][email protected][/EMAIL] and ask us to look into it.

What I will say is this: anyone who makes snide comments, is verbally abusive and a consistent disruption to this forum is in very real danger of having their posting privileges removed. People will make mistakes, and we have to educate not alienate. If you have a real issue with misuse of the board....contact us. That's it. We are here to sort this out and arguing on threads helps none of us.


So let's draw a line under this and start again. Remember what this board's about, remember not everyone is exempt from making a mistake and remember that we are all here for the same reason - to save money.

Be aware that we will be taking a firmer line and we won't hesitate to take action if things do not calm down.
