Great if you are part of the popular side in a discussion not so much when you are lone voice and no one wants to really hear your side.

But... why should we need to be "kept in line" in the first place? I mean, really, would you walk around the forums with a badge (sticker, icon, whatever) that basically says, in so many words, "I only want to talk to nice people?"

I insist the door is left wide open so we can all see that those within are behaving and suitably contrite

and I can parade up and down outside the door in my dominatrix uniform issuing threats

Re: Polite discourse vs hostility and rudeness

This sounds all very complex and unnecessary.

In my experience, and not just on forums, some will always have stronger opinions than others and will press their argument further. This doesn't necessarily make them "hostile, for who is to judge that, but if you personally consider it to be so then all you need to do is ignore the post or poster and move on. There will always be some that have to have the last word regardless, just the way of the world really.

Re: Polite discourse vs hostility and rudeness

When someone goes to the trouble to start a site and finances it for the enjoyment of others, then those that join should adhere to the rules. If not, sling them out! They are not worthy of a membership.
I saw stuff written on this site this week that appalled me.... That member should have been slung out at the first instance.
