What is the definition of “insults” or “personal attacks” on Disqus?
The rules clearly state:
No insults or personal attacks against either the moderators or other posters.
I have always understood that to mean no name-calling, though I have seen it applied to other mean-spirited implications, as well. I have always done my best to comply with this. A few times, I’ve been told that something is an insult that I really didn’t think was an insult, but I adjusted my posting accordingly.
In a recent thread, I noticed several direct insults by one poster personally attacking another poster. I reported them. One was removed, so it was obviously in violation of the rules, but then I was threatened with a ban for “flagging comments which are not in violation of the rules”.
Can we get more specific direction on what should and should not be flagged for staff review?
