Re: Tweaking of the Flamming rules.
We've always taken the context of the situation into account, and thats not changed. Although I'm not going to make them PM the flamee to see if he was offended each and every time before handing out an infraction. If they want to do that, thats fine, but I'm not going to force them to every time.
If a mod come across something that could go either way, or isn't sure which to give, a minor or major flame infraction, then they will ask other mods their opinion about it, or if I'm around, they'll ask me about it. That has happened in alot of instances in the past and not just with flamming infractions, but with anything they werent sure of.
