  • New Site Rule

    Hi all,

    Just a heads up that we added a new site rule today:

    No flaming!

    Wikipedia defines flaming as a “hostile and insulting interaction between persons over the Internet.” We want Self-Storage Talk to be a pleasant place for self-storage professionals to connect. Please avoid contentious, non-industry topics that can lead to volatile interactions such as politics, race, religion, sexual orientation and personal finances.

        You are going to hate how syrupy I am going to be now. I do know how incredibly busy you are each and every day and really have no time for my dribble so I must apologize for the time it takes to read this apology. In the future you can rest assured that I will take all that in to consideration as I flow through these posts and try to offer nothing but positive and supportive replies. Short and sweet from here on out. Again, I do apologize for taking your valuable time.

          Good rule, we could've used it in the early days of SST also. To date, those are still the only two to have been booted from the forum that I can recall. Although I remember a couple of others that came close. Thanks to the staff for addressing this. At least now I know how to get booted if I wanted to.

            An excellent idea and is badly needed for the misguided ones here that speak out too much. We must be aware of how our words and actions can hurt and cause consternation with others.

              Agreed. Things are are to easily misconstrued within the confines of forums (unable to gauge tone or intended context ) so it's better to have a blanket rule to remind all of us to always err on the side of caution.
