Re: Respect in Posting
Enough of this. Without pointing fingers or taking sides, the moderators try to keep SailNet as place where people can come and have civil discourse on all things Sailing or take other issues to the sewer, I mean off-topic. To some extent, offensive language is in the mind of the offended, by which I mean, we all have our threshold that defines whether we personally feel attacked or not. Within reason, there is legitimacy in that. As moderators, we try to take both the viewpoint of the offended and the offender into account, but when in doubt, we generally try to lean towards the offended since we don't want to chase anyone away.
If accused as an offender, we ask you to back off. You may not see yourself as being agressive or out of line but clearly the person complaining does. If you feel offended to be called an offender, just stop reading the other guys posts and let it go. This is not real life, it's only the internet. There is nothing truly gained by proving or letting go of anything here.
I am locking this thread since the points are all made and then some.
