Excuse me if this is the wrong forum for this question. I seldom question rules regarding the forum. This is one of those times. The last time was the forum tags being abused. I would like to address this issue with the staff. It's regarding people using their families as bait in threads in order to raise the flame fight. Right now, the way it stands, anyone can bring up their families in the flame zone and if someone says something that's negative about the 'offered' family position then USMB members can report that person. And through a setup members can be censure/banned. This could use an addressing regarding the flame zone use of family in threads and posts in order to stop this abuse. imho The no family attack rule should stand for family attacks that are not initiated by the family member and if a family member inserts their family into the flame, it should be fair flame game.
