Lesley N. Nothing Worth Opening Here Lately (II) (44) RE: Nothing Worth Opening Here Lately (II) 15 Nov 99

I do not usually take issue with how things are handled by anyone - I try to comport myself online with the same manners that I do in life - those being respect, restraint and tolerance. That said, "What a bunch of whiney titty-babies" and "if you don't like it get out" type of remarks are, I think, uncalled for.

We are talking about people who make a significant contribution to Mudcat. Not just Art. Bruce agrees and recall that Joe Offer made the same remark not long ago. If someone rasies a legitimate concern in their minds - whether you agree with it or not - no one should not resort to name calling and rudeness. I believe this is a more mature forum than that - where we can agree to disagree with not only manners but as friends as well.

I shouldn't speak for others, but I don't believe anyone who thinks that there are too many BS threads means it as a personal insult to those who participate and enjoy them.

I apologize if I have offended anyone. I am just dismayed by the tone of a few remarks. In reading them I thought to myself, "I'm not sure I'd stay if that was directed at me." I realize one must develop a thick skin on the Internet, but I would hate to loose the company of people whose opinions and knowledge I value.
