Many players say things to me like, Wow, you post on the Forum? You're brave, it's full of sharks. Let's face it, we've all been there, just a little reactive to another's post for one reason or another. But this sort of thing snowballs, and then some players give up posting their impressions, while others make mortal enemies here. Three months back I embarked on a self-appointed mission to make this Forum a more friendly place to post. And I do see us being more respectful of others' positions; at least for those who are able to be influenced in this manner. It sure doesn't work for everyone! Lately some of us have strayed off topic. Our posts moved or edited as a result. How far off topic is relevant Folks? And since it is a source of tension: Can't we aĺl make our own threads for our point of view?
