General question here.

If we see nastiness in the comments section, should we drop in a reminder of the "be nice" policy (not directed to a particular user) or just flag for a mod without comment?

If we see nastiness in the comments section, should we drop in a reminder of the "be nice" policy (not directed to a particular user) or just flag for a mod without comment?

I'd say we do both.

Besides flagging accordingly, I think that placing a comment politely reminding about our Be Nice policy and to keep comments for what they are helps dissuade other users from "joining the brawl".

I also sometimes kindly point them to chat, as to encourage discussion there. It has proven to me that after including such comment the nastiness stops or at least is cut down.

  • @DonThermidor_LobsterMobster yes, we should never stop trying to teach/remind users on the proper way of interacting on TWP and the SE network. – DarkCygnus Jul 9 '18 at 18:13
