Otherwise, I think some civil and informative (read: "valued") participants will get fed up with it and they will go somewhere else, which is bad for everyone.

Where is all of this nastiness coming from all of a sudden?
Someone needs some cheese with their whine !

I almost always find this site helpful and supportive. Of course there are private agendas but that's excusable for me. My problem is when a very negative post comes from a new poster. I've come to the conclusion that many really nasty posts from newbies are probably from the same few posters axes to grind. Sometimes humor just falls flat and looks like hostility. I know I'll stick around for the good stuff

I don't understand the "with" in your screenname.

Also, I wonder why I got three rep points within thirty minutes of that post (not that I care about rep points).

I guess some folks simply refuse to acknowledge that other people are entitled to an opinion about decorum and civility. I, for example, swear quite liberally and in a most vulgar manner in my private life, and enjoy some pursuits that others might find distasteful. I recognize that this might not be the place to express myself in that way or to discuss such matters. It's not for my sake that I skip these things here, but for the sake of those things that stumble around the world around me (virtual or otherwise) known as "other people."

So you and the other Stupid with whom you so proudly travel can go fall in a hole if you think I'm "whining."

Keep up the vitriol. It's really endearing.

I found the comment amusing also. You need to as another poster said take these boards with a grain of salt & enjoy what you want to enjoy and ignore what displeases you.

Life is to short to let these posts bother you. You probably reinforce what you perceive as a negative post by attacking the poster for what might have been an attempt at humor.

Yes, OK. You're right.

Seriously, forget I said anything (mods, please delete my posts), and you folks can interact any way you see fit, and I will simply ignore it all.

Note: another two rep points just since the last post. Is it really that hard to see that people aren't interested in aggressive people berating those with dissenting views?

But as I said, no more from me. Done with it.

Weren't you just complaining about the lack of civility on this board? Doesn't look like you made it better with this post.

Rushmore, you can't talk someone into having class. You either have it or you don't. Just enjoy the fact that you have it. I put two people on my ignore list a few weeks ago and the board is a much better experience for me.
