    I guess I should do this as a poll, recently I red repped someone because I don't agree with their business practices and they sent me a PM calling me a f'ing idiot ect... I guess I should probably just put them on ignore but I wonder what other folks here do to people that behave that way.

    and is it allowed by forum rules to swear in PM's?

    I'd take it on the chin and not post a thread about it.

    well crazyran I should mention I am not going to lose any sleep over it but I am curious what they forum rules are if someone swears at you in PM, I know you can't do it in a thread.

    I'd probably grow a set of testicles and not worry about it

    It depends on the context and how offensive it is.
    I personally would delete it and move on.

    According to the latest rules in the sticky. No personal attacks. This is pretty clear. Personally, if I red repped someone it would most likely be for something completely offensive to me. If a nasty response came after that via PM I would forward it to mods and leave it at that.

    This is what I would do. Also, do not write your name when you red or green rep someone.

    As CountryBoy said, it depends on the nature of the message. Most mild messages- ignore them, you have better things to waste your bandwidth and time upon...

    Even so...i always forget to press the "red rep".
