Yea? What about that?
I try to be respectful of posters and the rules. On the other hand.....it's the darn internet. Are people so delicate that they take some random,anonymous insult to heart and they are afraid to post?
Obviously it's not my site and i try to abide by gene's rules. IF I did own the site......I'd ban those who were just obvious trolls,flamers. I'd also tell the thin skinned to not let stupid stuff from unknown sources bother them. Fact is.......the meek shall always be butthurt. in life and in cyberlife. You can't please all of the people.
I suppose that a more respectful WC is good. I also applaud the mods in the LR for understanding when a guy like RRR or Funk is just being a wise guy and not really trying to be malicious when he calls someone a bonehead or the like.
trolls and flamers are the best part of the message board experience, imo.
