Harassment, Flaming, Stalking & Thread Hijacking Issues

Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

From the Disruption of our Community section in our Guidelines:


"The harassment of our members is not allowed.


Cruise Critic is committed to providing an online environment that is free from these types of harassing postings. Please, don't attack another poster or group of posters. Do not harass, threaten, embarrass, or do anything else to another member that is unwanted. This means: don't say bad things about them, don't keep sending them unwanted Instant Message notes, don't attack their race, heritage, or their sexual orientation, etc. If you disagree with someone, respond to the subject, not the person. Postings of this nature will be removed from the boards.


Do not post details or private information about any other person. Do not attempt to impersonate another person, either real or virtual.


Postings that have been placed on the boards to disrupt the flow of conversation or otherwise disrupt Cruise Critic members' enjoyment of the Community will be removed and you run the risk of losing your posting privileges. This would include, but is not limited to, the posting of essentially the same message over and over in response to different threads on the forums or utilizing the features of our Community to transmit messages of a personal nature.


Also disrupting to the Community is Thread hijacking which is the act of trying to steer a web forum discussion thread off topic by discussing a subject entirely unrelated to the original topic. This would also include making references to the original poster, or even to OTHER posters, that have nothing to do with the subject at hand.


We realize that in some instances, this happens naturally. However, it does appear to be intentional by certain members. Please be considerate of your fellow members; posting off topic within a discussion -- 'hijacking' -- is boring and only wastes everyone's time. Think twice and, for some of you, even three times before posting off topic in an existing discussion: not "thinking" may result in loss of your posting privileges on Cruise Critic.


Please note that the determination of what constitutes "disruption" will be the sole determination of the Community Manager."


If you feel you are being harassed, stalked or notice hijacking posts, please use the Report Post link located on each posting on the boards. You will find this in the upper right hand corner of the post you'd like to report. The post will be reviewed by Cruise Critic management.
