If those who disagree with you start their argument with slings and arrows, they have already lost...don't stoop to their level, rise above, prove your point...the discussion will remain civil, we will all remain friends, even if we have differing opinions.
This thread is four years old. Or am I missing something?

This is mostly attributed, according to web sources, to Rodney King in a public appearance after his LAPD experience: "People, I just want to say, can't we all get along?" Over the years, and in different venues (songs, articles, etc.) it has been slightly changed from time to time to what you posted. Btw....wasn't til I looked this up that I remembered Rodney died at the young age of 47! Ciao!

This also applies to private messages.

The administrators are real tired of receiving emails and messages about what members are calling each other and what one said about another. If you can't be civil here, please leave.

It is obvious that this forum is completely unmoderated....and that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

While there are certain advantages for those that need to blow off steam in anonymity, I have just a couple of suggestions (suggestions only)...that might make it a better forum.

1. Assigning some type of identifier to members posting, even if it is simply 'Guest1,' Guest2,' Guest3, etc. IMHO, it would make it a lot easier to know who it is that you are addressing and avoid a lot of confusion and false accusations toward those who might not have even posted to you.


2. Hide the Political Forum posts from the Home Page, so that it takes a request to management to access this forum forum. I think it would be a benefit to what is otherwise a great family friendly site, if a passer-bye couldn't click and see some of the really nasty stuff posted in this forum. You can still show it on the Home Page, just have a notice that it takes a request to management if you want access to it. That is the way the site I moderated worked and it seemed to work well.

Not a mandate to management by any means, simply a couple of suggestions...that I believe would make things a bit better IMHO.

You aren't missing a thing -- except part of this thread is eight years old.

These are wise words.
