This forum was created as a haven from the fights and raunchy attitude that was prevalent at PDF at the time.

Bob told me that PDF has had another meltdown of sorts and it seems some folks have migrated elsewhere... at least for a while.

In the past week or two, I have seen a change in the attitude of posts that is a bit unsettling. Posts seem to be getting more confrontational and personal and I would hate to see it evolve into a series of fights like those that are prevalent on PDF.

Can we have civilized discussions and debate the relative merits of one's position without personal attacks? Calling a poster a liar or mentally deficient, etc. only stirs up trouble and it is childish.

If you disagree with something someone else posts, it is more civil to quote that text, provide your own evidence to refute what that poster said, and provide a link where people can verify for themselves. WHERE you are getting your information is important as there are plenty of websites that spin the story to suit their agenda, so a link would be helpful. If you are not stating fact, you are certainly within your rights to state your opinion or disagreement.

I will admit that I am guilty of a confrontational attitude and I promise to reign in my opinions for the sake of the reputation of this forum.

Can we please act like adults?

I cannot imagine anyone thinking any of your posts are confrontational Eric.

Can you feel that big old " sucking up to" feeling that I just sent out. LOL

You are a good guy. I'm sure you will handle any problems that might surface. You always have. We do appreciate you out here.

Thanks for reading and getting the point of my post... It has become more confrontational and will so until the nonsense of being untruthful and intentionally misquoting other posters stops...Disagree..argue...discuss whether it be from another source or an opinion but be accurate and stop the drive-by stuff...

Thanks. We all get caught up in emotions and sometimes they get the better of us.

Disagreeing is half the fun on a forum and I surely don't want to stifle good conversation.

The constant Obama bashing is old.There is no need to call the President names or post derogatory meme's. If you want to stop the confrontational attitudes then stop the childish name calling of the other parties political figures. You can disagree with his policies or agenda. I don't see the liberals doing that but the conservatives go overboard with their hate.

A certain amount of poetic license is allowed here. While I personally do not agree with such designations and graphics, the discussions are within reasonable bounds.

If there are no threats, obscene pictures, or any words that are illegal, and posts don't stir up trouble in the forum, members are allowed to state their opinions... even if their opinion or representation thereof may differ from ours.

Youre welcome. Its very nice to not have to feel defensive all the time.

The beatings and arguments have stifled conversation. I yearn for conversation on many topics. So much out in this world to learn, see, discuss. And laughing is also a lot of fun.  Very Happy 

I wish I had let go of the argument sooner, but now it is over and I hope people can see me for my actions and not reactions.

Glad to be here.

My only issue is I can post 20 times in 5 minutes and I have to remember that may not be what others want. Work in progress. Smile

It's just a matter of time, Eric. Leopards don't change their spots. They're just in the "honeymoon" phase.

I wonder if she thinks we don't recognize a dig when we read it? Guess the kat is a leopard.

Yesterday, she called Sarah Palin a nit wit.

Stop the name calling against others and it will stop against Obama, but the statements about Obama are about his leadership, NOT his intelligence....

No it won't stop against Obama. You act like I called Palin a nitwit first? The name calling is about his leadership and intelligence so you're not quite accurate.But hey all's fair so we will carry on.
