This is just a reminder and a tip for the very few people on this site who cannot treat others with courtesy and respect.
Though we are very relaxed here, allowing pretty much all types of stories and ratings, there is one thing that absolutely will not be tolerated
One of the main reasons I created this site in the first place was so that people could post their work without fear of being flamed at every turn like they sometimes do in other communities. My authors have been wonderful reviewers, with one rather nasty exception that occured tonight. This person took it upon herself to leave some very insulting comments for one of our most active and respected authors and as a result, has received a severe warning.
Just so this is clear, here is the difference between constructive criticism and a flame:
- Constructive criticism may not be glowing praise but it is polite and designed to help an author improve their story by pointing out errors and making suggestions.
- Flaming is a review that attacks an author and is rude, insulting, hurtful or malicious.
We appreciate constructive criticism here but flaming is disgusting and childish and I won't put up with it in any way.
I try to read every review I see but if I miss something or if another author has done anything that seems inappropriate, report it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will deal with it.
Most of you guys have truly been wonderful and I'm loving your stories!
