Moderator Emeritus
Gentlemen, recently threads in the honing forum have been needlessly polluted by puerile bickering. Please recall that when you joined Badger & Blade, you agreed to our Terms of Usage which read, in part:

Realize that we take great pride in B&B being a work-friendly, internet oasis for gentlemanly behavior. This means that profanity, inflammatory comments regarding politics and/or religion, personal attacks, pornographic images, discussions of illegal or illicit activity, or any other ungentlemanly behavior as deemed inappropriate by the Administrators/Moderators, is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Offenders will be dealt with swiftly. More to the point, if it's likely to be offensive, or if you wouldn't say it to someone in person, it doesn't belong here.
Consequently, the Moderator Team will be implementing a zero tolerance policy throughout the Straight Razor forums. Members who post in a manner deemed by the moderators to be unseemly, uncivil or otherwise not up to snuff may loose access to the Straight Razor forums for a minimum of three months. All such decisions will be made by the moderator team en masse and will not be open to appeal.

Specifically, but not exhaustively, we expect to see no further:

1. Quarrelling.
2. Provoking other members and/or responses to provocation in contradiction with B&B's TOU.
3. Habitual thread derailment.
4. Any behavior which detracts from B&B's overall congenial atmosphere.

Which is to say that, going forward, you will be held accountable for the content and the tone of your posts. If your post(s) requires moderation, anticipate consequences.
