    Taken straight from the BHW rules:
    PROHIBITED CONTENT AND ACTIVITIES







    I see these rules being broken on a daily basis. In short: Let's keep BHW clean guys, don't feed the trolls. Just report and move on.

    TOTALLY agree with you. Good Man for raising this issue.

    I would also add that members here need to use the Report Post Button more frequently

    100% agree.

    Also, reporting somebody is much more effective than bumping the post. I see it all the time - a post that should be ignored and reported and yet it has 8 replies. Even some people who say "reported" - just report and move on - no need to waste your time replying to a thread that will be taken down.

    The mods here are vigilant, odds are if you report a post it will be taken down very quickly.

    By spamming "Thanks for the post", and "Good method" just to increase your post count..

    We (the staff) look at the member's post history. If we see that
    he/she is consistently posting comments like "Nice share - thanks",
    and other short posts which add nothing to the conversation, we
    can assume that they are making those posts in the attempt to
    inflate their post count.
