    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.

    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.
