    Very good to be reminded again. I have seen some posts on particularly a forum that is dedicated to Linux where people are calling each other names ( stupid ) and being quite rude. This is totally uncalled for.

    After reading the guide to forum etiquette, I feel obliged to share a link to one of my (other) favorite websites. The Art of Manliness recently featured an article on the subject of civility in online environments.

    I believe that it makes a nice addendum to TFSA's etiquette guide.

    You can't delete threads but you have a certain time in which you can edit them. If you made a thread and it had some replies before you decided to make major edits to it then that would be considered bad manners. If you really want to delete a thread you would need to contact a moderator or Admin by PM and ask them to do it.
