"On the Serious Side" (OtSS) is intended for serious discussion free of flamebait trolling, off-topic distractions and personal attacks. Somewhat like tPF, OP reports will carry added weight to forum rule moderation, but moderators will decide when and how to act. Most likely such actions will be at minimum to thread ban the poster and remove the distracting post, but additional action could be taken, and frequent violators will be infracted.

It would seem that members may be either unaware of the forum in which they are posting or unaware of the difference in rules.

In the OtSS forums, members may not make ANY personal remarks about other members whatsoever. The metric for what is or is not off-topic is far stricter than on the Lighter Side forums. Off-topic side-bars, comments about members and general bad faith will result in thread bans and infractions. In other words, behavior must be strictly civil.

How can you tell where you are posting, even in What's New? There is a blue star at the beginning of the thread title.

If you are incapable of adhering to these standards, do not join these threads as you will invariably start accruing infractions which will affect your longevity on the forum.

Your cooperation is appreciated.
