Hmmm what do I say................ok well normally I read ATS after a few cold beers, you know when the emotions are in overdrive and you feel like
superman or superwoman (depends what you scratch first thing in the morning)
I'm saying that the majority of my posts are ruled from the heart and pull no punches, if I draw some unwanted comments then I will just send a U2U
to the person rather than reply and clutter a thread with useless banter.
In fairness so far I have not once sent in anger a U2U to anyone regarding a post of mine been flamed, received a U2U though off someone who ridiculed
one of my posts, I replied in a adult manner and heard nothing back so I guess I won that battle.
People do need to be civil but also must be allowed to show passion too in their posts and so this can lead to high emotions but that does not give
the right for someone to reply in a condescending and abusive manner.
I think the ATS owners and their mods do a fantastic job keeping the decorum to a good level and any new ideas to help keep the flow of good
discussion and the introduction of new members is the right way to go.
Any "applause" votes would be welcome as I would like some extra points
