I suggest that we respect the authors topic and not derail threads.
while the forum subject is general chit chat that does not mean you should disrespect the person posting a topic by just posting random things that
pop in your head that are not even remotely related to the subject.
I suggest that being an ATS related forum we put a limit on just how childish a post can be. There are many subjects to discuss in the range of
general chit chat that do not sink to the level of lets all go to the bathroom at the same time.
I have to say when I saw that I had to wonder just how old the topic author was and why we don't question membership when someone makes posts of such
a anti-quality. My 8 year old twins might have found that hilarious.. I however.. found it sad.. a reminder that content no longer seems to be
moderated in this branch of the ATS family very well.
You can't force people to be cordial or social with new people.. however you can stop them from hi-jacking a thread or posting content that is not
even at a middle school intellectual level.
I love ATS... this makes me sad. It really does.
