Open Letter to the Shoutbox Guest
We've recently observed the distressing trend of vulgarity used by yourself in the Shoutbox. Jibes and jokes are generally tolerated in the spirit of good-naturedness but your postings have been utterly nonsensical and profane. We'd like this to stop.
Please bear in mind that the Shoutbox serves not only yourself but other observing guests where sensitivities are respected. Whilst acknowledging that the Internet is a public domain, there are still boundaries to the sort of language tolerated. Even though you go by the anonymity of Guest, bear in mind that your true identity is not the best kept secret on this website.
Everyone who is a regular here knows fully well who you are and how you look like. If it's your intention to shamelessly continue with your rantings, it only reflects on your intelligence, or lack of it.
To that effect we strongly urge that you, the Guest in the Shoutbox, to behave decently. If you're unable to keep to this simple protocol, we urge you to stop using the Shoutbox. We are all runners and we don't like you to present a bad and inaccurate picture of us.
