Re: Respect in Posting

This discussion board seems to be considerably more civil and informative than other boards. I view it as a place to obtain answers and offer information to others, sometimes consciously interjecting controversial ideas to see what other people think. On the whole, it's very useful AND entertaining. Some people with insecure personalities just need to turn all useful discussion into some sort of personal rivalry by poking others with a sharp stick. This destroys the actual discussion, often digressing into personal attack and useless name-calling. Just put 'em on IGNORE.
