    If you see something, do you tend to call out on it? How is that received here?

    Yes of course, I'm very outspoken. However on this forum we're kept in check by the mods. Other forums are more open and dont give a fuck tho. Assuming your referring to here on bhw.

    I was asking in a more generalized sense. Calling something out or just watching it unfold kinda thing.

    Call it out. If I get banned, so be it. The truth will set you free!

    With negative rep. I delete half my posts and don't post them. I delete half the text of the posts I do post. It's a choice between saying how you feel, and what you think, and learning what you can use to make money. It's not a fair place, but it's rich in valuable information and frequently it's an either/or choice. Some members are very generous, WAY more generous than you'd think was possible, and others well, let's just say that they come here because they've already pulled the wings off of all the flies in the house, and they are still bored. One mistake I have to check myself against is to see one Member acting in a way you find objectionable, then deciding that's the culture here and start doing it yourself. I've noticed in my time here that those noteworthily negative personalities get banned eventually. Not immediately, but eventually. So maintain as high of a standard as you can, and don't let the "bad actors" influence you into lowering it, as tempting and fun as that may seem.

    Another thing to consider is that some of the "senior" members here are very young. They might know a lot about IM, but they still have a very juvenile perspective in other areas, such as public discussions of their intimate sexuality, which I find objectionable. Imagine a high-school locker room, only the nerdiest kids have all the money, the girls and the power, and they like to snap your ass with a towel, just for fun, and there's nothing you can do about it.

    Damn. Good metaphor.
