I sometimes see on other boards where a member attempts to call out other members in order to fight them.

My question: were such a thing to happen at WoV, would the mods allow it?

Seems to me it could be a violation of rules eight and twelve, if strictly construed.

Probably Rule 12. I would think Rule 8 would depend on the jurisdiction of the parties involved.

Generally, if two people want to fight, there’s usually a legal way that can happen.

It would not be allowed.

Rules 12, 18, 8, and possibly 19 would come into play.

Importing "drama" from elsewhere is also generally discouraged, but this would seem to be a relevant question on forum rules.

Yeah, I wondered about the "importing" from another site issue when I framed the question, but it seemed timely and relevant.

Thanks for the (expected) answer / clarification.

Didn't that happen with JerryLogan challenging mkl123456? Mkl just said "no," and life quickly went on.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I realized I missed 1.

If you disagree with another forum member, politely attack the writing, not the writer.

I'll take a misquoting penalty as directed, but I honestly think either interpretation of "attack" applies.

FWIW I don't think a misquoting penalty is warranted; people can agree on many things yet still want to claw one another's eyes out.
