Personal attacks on OUR President are a violation of the newsvine COH.
Unfortunately personal attacks on the President are taken for granted as they appear to have become a matter of routine.
As a matter of policy and specifically inserted into the COH if needed Newsvine should not allow our President to be personally attacked.
I would like to stand up and state unequivacably that it is time for all of Newsvine to stop personal attacks against our President. Or any sitting President or public figure.
It is vile and dangerous and above all a violation of the COH. We cannot censure one another yet allow our President to be slandered.
I ask newsviners to begin reporting blatant personal attacks on OUR President or anyone as a violation according to the COH.
We manage to quickly take offense where each individual is concerned on newsvine while ignoring the most important people in this country. Let's instill some civility - not fake it!
The President is a very special person in our nation and that position demands the utmost respect.
Disagree with the Presidents policies but don't attack him and his family personally.
These attacks flame the fires of hate and anger which can lead to violent rhetoric and ultimately to violence.
Please express your thoughts and take the poll.
Above all else, respect others. Address issues and arguments and refrain from making personal attacks. If you see something disrespectful or inappropriate, report it - rather than further inflaming the situation.
