Let me just start by saying that the forum rules apply to all parts of the Spine-Health patient forums. That includes:
Just this week, I have received several complaints about the improper behavior of some members in CHAT. This time, the problem can be summed up as the Chat room being used as
'An Online Dating and Flirting' vehicle.
Some of that can be harmless depending how it is done and who it is done to.
A remember that our chat rooms are available to ALL Members of Spine-Health, and all ages.
THe chat room is NOT for:
- Sharing/Display photos that are questionalbe in taste
- Using the chat as a member dating game.
- Making more than just flirting comments
- Discussions about clothing being removed
These item are NOT items that should be used in Chat.
Any one of them can be subject to a violation and a warming.
It is impossible for the Moderator team to be in CHAT every night to monitor the sessions. First, I dont want to go that route. Having a Hall monitoring is something that is needed for children at school, not for our chat rooms.
So once again, let me emphasize that all Forum rules apply to actvities in the CHAT room. We know the members that were directing involved with the above.
The choice is yours, clean it up or warnings will be issued.
The CHAT room is for everyone. Turning it a dating service prohibits members who want to come to chat, to unwind a bit, talk with other members etc.
I do hope this is the last time I need to make a post about problems in CHAT
