Thread: Thread civility

  1. #1

    Thread civility

    Below is a copy of a reply I posted on another tread but I feel it is relevant to all, so I thought I would repost it,

    I really am amazed, but after my years on here I have no right to be, somebody gives the best evaluation of something that they can and what thanks do they get, none at all in fact they get a kicking. At the first sign of anything that causes concern out comes the 'you should have done it this way........' brigade and point out all that they conceive as being wrong. Now don't get me wrong having a differing point of view and expressing it can only be good for healthy debate and discussion and is welcome, but what is not welcome is the belligerent and unpleasant way of expressing these varying points of view. It is not difficult to be civil when answering the threads but it would appear that people have to adopt a superior attitude and at best be condescending and at worse downright rude.

    I'm getting really fed up with it now, we are always getting complaints from people about the aggressive attitude being displayed by some, and how this attitude stifles healthy pleasant constructive debate and more importantly stops people from posting on and joining the site. So I would ask people to consider what they type and the manner in which their response may well be received, surely civility and good manners are not beyond everyone's reach.

    For those amongst the membership that have trouble understanding that let me rephrase in a more direct manner that seems to be favoured by some. If you can't sort yourselves out then I will do it for you and you will an ex-member of this site.

    Made too many mates on here to name them.

    Constantly stay at their houses as they do mine.

    Im guilty of taking a rise but on the whole the SD site remains something all the owners should be very proud of.

    With its owners and members having contributed nearly 2k to The British Heart Foundation in a matter of days they too should also be proud
