Default Re: Manners... A new rule...

Reminds me of an old bicycle site I'm on called the CABE. I restore old bikes and they had a thread called the Break Room. Unfortunately folks got into politics on it and it became quite personal and testy. They have since eliminated the thread and restored civility to the web site. I'm at a loss as to why discussing our passions could result in the same problem we had on the CABE? Being a jerk is not cool no matter what the subject is. Seems like manner these days is in short supply.......

Hey Ryan, and the members of the Barn - you all do a great Service to us, especially newbies to the Barn forum like myself. I just checked out HAMB reseaching something out, and could not believe it. 75 % of replies are attacking others, and mostly have nothing to do with, or very little to do with the original Poster's questions.


Your patience is really appreciated, having answered some questions many, many times in the past, while us newbies learn how to search the Barn.


So Thanks.

My big fear with this whole deal is that I run off good members who think I might be targeting them in this effort.

If you've never posted crossly on this forum, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. That's a promise.
No offence taken here...Been on forum one day..lol
