    I have seen @Akheilos and @Shamain posting

    @Oscar @Manticore @Icarus @Slav Defence

    If you read their posts you will realize that these girls/boys do not know how to address people. Most of the time they discuss people instead of discussing topics. Just read their posts and you will find 9 out of 10 times they would be discussing Indian members. I request you to kindly ban these two girls/boys permanently.

    We have thousands of reported posts and few active mods.. neither am I active myself as much as I used to be. Its not mod bias but inactivity of the mods. To plug this gap we are in the process of adding 2 more mods .. of the 2, we have already added icarus.

    Let bygones be bygones--- please concentrate in the present. After the implementation of the rule please let us know if some one breaks it.

    My thread was for all members to show solidarity in upholding a common cause not bickering on past bitter experiences. It is BECAUSE of those experiences that we have taken this initiative.

    Yes that was incorrect, we should never generalize. Report and mods will look into it.
    I am sure in future you will not have such complains, problem was inactive mods. Webmaster and moderation team is looking into it and have added Icarus, i am sure that in future mods will do their best.

    Noted, from this point i will start taking screen shots and report them in Analyst forum. Sir, another problem is that those who do get banned for such comments or etc, etc reasons make multiple ID. A poster has had this problem(one of many), new members harassing her-clearly same member who was banned. Personally i tried my best-again i would say good to see Mods taking this problem seriously.

    Anyone, be it a male or a female, they will be banned for using incorrect language and getting personal-regardless of their nationality.

    Thread has been made sticky for complains against sexual harassment.

    A)To female posters:
    Females are strongly advised for not to:
    1-Share personal info
    2-Disclose personal ID
    3-Taking part in profane discussions.
    4-Try not to interact with trolls.
    5-Use some common sense:Look at the post,focus upon words and google it if you don't know the meanings.
    6-Prefer to report rather than responding back to trolls.
    7-Other members are requested to give moral support to harassed victim,unless mods are there,but without responding back with profanity.
    8-Try to make positive contributions and try for not to waste your time and energy with chit chat threads.You can learn a lot here about defence and military. Grab the opportunity now.

    B)To members:

    1-Behave yourselves.
    2-Look at 7(A)
    3-If you find someone doing abuse in stealth manner,than report the post immediately.
    4-If you are planning to have fun as discussed in 3(B) then you are committing suicide,remember that.

    C)To Title holders:

    1-As per criteria,rate negative upon abuse.
    2-If you were found doing such shameful act then you will be demoted immediately.
    3-To support a female victim,in mod's absence you can hit rating option as well.You all know that -3 to a post will hide it,thus preventing further embarrassment.Hence,it is your responsibility to be gentle with females and to give them all help and support they want to learn and to settle themselves in PDF environment.

    You don't need to.It is a part of nature and sexual dimorphism as a consequence of which you can clearly observe behavioral difference as well as difference in their dialect.Besides,use some common sense,you can see their profile where gender has been mentioned.

    Very good move ...
    Highly appreciate. Other than this it would be nice to add few females into moderation team, so that females are represented well and can look into things from females prospective.

    Also would like to know how can a female send a private message to mod teams if she is facing certain issues.

    Sadly,we don't have enough choices for females for moderatorship.It is huge responsibility and a lot of patience is needed to encounter trolls.Also,you need to have a natural instinct while choosing amongst wide variety of options.For example poster X had got ban while Y was only warned albeit both were indulge in fight or trolling.Now why?only mod knows and so administration.
    So,things don't appear as easy as members think.
    Regarding PM,forget females..even males can PM mods.

    We will ban them as well.Profanity is itself violation with accordance to forum rules.
