Q: What's the posting policy on this site? And...

what does one have to do to get a warning, or banned?

Given some of the vents, rants and straight out insults I've seen on here, I'm truly curious!

Maybe you should request "rules" if any from the site Admin (The Cat), or as it was already suggested, try harder.

As in almost every place today on Internet, some join with the sincere desire to either help or find answers.  Others get their kicks by trading barbs at eachother.  They just seek and enjoy a brawl, if you refrain from answering then you will deny them the pleasure of upsetting you.
But yes, sometimes some persons posting do get away with murder....frown

The general rule is: you say something offensive, you get a mail warning from me. You go way over the top and you get a temporary ban. Following that, recidivism leads to perma-ban.

Nothing, however, is really set in stone. Cases vary. Some people have bad China days and go over the top. They'll get a warning and their post deleted. No big deal. Others, however, seem to have a natural proclivity for abusive, racist, moronic comments, and seem immune to punishment or reasonable advice. Those are the ones I have little empathy for. One of them is particularly at risk at the moment.

The best thing you can do is report a message if you think it's inappropriate. A few people have done so reliably over the past few weeks and it's made my life easier. Others have reported things which didn't warrant my attention, and so ended up wasting my time. Use your better judgement.

Admin cat
 
Firstofall, not mean to bring your site any troubles. I think a sane and well-educated person if he had read my post from the start till the so called “trouble” caused by me who wouldn’t think the trouble is ignited by me at first. I was just followed by insane persons like Nevermind, this OP, huapanda.
 
I have been banned by you once. I didn’t say anything.  
 
And when you still keep those obvious “racist” posts open in your site, I didn’t complain again and again.
 
Racist posts such as “that Chinese joke” , you had deleted all my jokes (which was request by another insane guy XXXX he wanted a laugh) about white/black ppl, I still didn’t say anything.  
 
The dude’s racist post was followed by “the WHITE ppl jokes”(you deleted).
 
Today another xxxx post about “DUMP PLACE” is still lively on your site.
 
I’m wondering now what are these vicious, unstable and insane ppl like OP they want in your site? I know many foreign guys like to(cant help to)think any Chinese who is against them are from China government (wu mao)..This is a laughable to death thing for me everytime it happened. I’m just a normal sane ordinary “people” who like to point out human’s weekness on some “very special ppl”.
 
I do support you have a rule to administrate what should on this site, what should not. Your site is for private business, not for government purpose. China does have law about “internet administration” which means you are here you gotta to follow it, not let insane ppl to cause your site in trouble. This is the best for you.
 
Off topic, to anyone who want to discuss Chinese government you should choose a site back home, this is internet you can stay where you wanna stay. And To my surprise, an ordinary ppl when his country now got many ppl jobless, when his country got many ppl almost beg on the street, they still big mouth talk like a fucking hell politican in other country land. Why can’t they be “PEOPLE”?...my guess to this is they are many secretly doing his government job here in China. However they don’t know we Chinese already got a headache government, we don’t’ need more parties to make more headaches at all. This is my warning to “normal people” here…

geez..im really tired of typing so much words in few mins....yes

just my opinion if anyone cares

Ok, I think I understand Localla now (I'm sorry, but I honestly don't under your english very well and that could very well be the source of why you have problems with others here)  and how this site works and how it can bring about about negative frustration for some.

For example the jokes and "dump" expressions are definitely meant for an audience thats not overly sensitive or understands exaggerated adjectives to get a point across (i.e. someone that understands a joke is just a joke) .
I believe this site has proved very helpful for me (even with the some poorly written articles). I think because its an english site perhaps some people don't get the light/dark humor. Small skirmishes become loaded personal attacks and out of control for sure.

I was wondering myself what too far is on here as well. I can appreciate Admin understanding a bad China day. Can english learners understand what having bad China day?

I must say that while some things may cross the line (ahem...I may have stired the crap pot a little...mabye), I disagree stongly that complaining about things that we think are wrong here are in anyway racist or inapproipriate.
Crimo has a point.  For all expats here, we need a place to vent and voice our displeasure with certain aspects of life here.  I do not think this is insulting or wrong, and I do this regardless of what country I am living in.
If local people want to come on this site to practice English and learn about western views, then I think they have to stop being so damn sensitive.
When I complain about morons, it is just that I happen to be in China while I do so.  I complain about stupid people regardless of where I am or what country I am in.
And yes, bad China days cause all of us to react, in different ways.  
I draw the line at personal attacks and REAL outright racism.

I joined this site to learn about China and what to expect, good bad and ugly. I ask questions, and have gotten some, what I consider, very valuable answers. Sometimes I think the venting is over the top, but then... I'm not in China yet. Perhaps I'll be doing the same when I get there. 

The venting hasn't been racist by.. most. There are some that walk the line. The most racist thing I have seen is Localla's... loving endearment (sarcasm) of black people calling out the.. N word. That just absolutely threw me, and because of that, I have been a little more vocal in my disdain for her. Or him. Or it. 

She has shown no respect for anyone on this site, including Cat. If we could vote as a group, my guess is she would be voted out.

not understanding a joke or flippent comment is not limited to non native english speakers
A person from the US or even the UK will not necersery understand a comment or joke that comes from AUS
simply its local talk and even I forget sometimes that only a select group will understand
we all uderstand Mr Bean because we see the joke
but not everybody understands the jokes in Black adder (same actor but diffrent slye of comedy)
its all greek to me and all english to somebody else
hope this makes sence to most people

I write mostly to be funny, sometimes I'll give a serious comment or advice. I'm actually humourous when I talk.
I get ticked when I see something I wrote get either changed or erased. It may be a "moronic comment" ,but I'm not trying to be offensive or writting hate. 
Why is hate , insults and trolling allowed while comic relief is not.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
