Some members of the WS Forums have called for another member, Serge Birbrair, to be banned. I do not intend to take that action -- at least, not at present.
These Forums are public and free of charge. We welcome anyone who wishes to discuss wine and related topics. Many of Serge's posts have violated our Terms of Service and been deleted, but so have many posts made by other members.
I ask all of our members to maintain a civil tone. If you see a post that you find objectionable, please report it -- but please don't respond to it in the Forums. If you have decided that anything a particular member posts is objectionable, I ask you to avoid that member's threads. If that member posts in other threads, I ask you to skip over those posts.
Unfortunately, the software we currently use to support the Forums does not offer an "Ignore" feature, which would allow you to make all of a given member's posts invisible to you. We're looking into it, but I can't say at this time when we'd be able to add this feature. Until then, I urge each of you to exercise your own discretion.
