We have this paragraph here:

The forum is here for collectors of all persuasions, so unless you're in a thread specifically geared towards comparison/discussion, keep your ill toward comments out of the thread. Note that there is a difference between having a reasonable argument in the correct thread and trolling.

How can we express the bolded part better - it just doesn't sound right!

    What are you trying to say? Off-topic comments? Rude comments? Explain it to me like I'm five years old, and then just go ahead and use that simple wording. – RegDwigнt Apr 25 '14 at 15:12
  • To keep it as close to the original as possible, you could say "keep your ill-willed comments out of the thread." Have a nice day. – Apple Freejeans Apr 25 '14 at 15:14
  • Are we even sure this is the original rather than a miscopy? – Edwin Ashworth Apr 25 '14 at 15:17
  • I simply assumed he was trying to modify "untoward" with a new prefix "illtoward". This may be a false assumption, but I worked with what was given. Have a nice day. – Apple Freejeans Apr 25 '14 at 15:19
