Forum Civility

Recommended Posts

I hope those who have met me personally agree that I am same fine example of reasonableness and civility that I am on the forum.

Hey VF, if you're such a good guy why are you banned from the PotLuck AND the Hash? cool.pnglaugh.png

Okay, that is more like it.wink.png I have begged and pleaded but they still won’t let me play with the big boys.sad.png Thanks Scea. Hope this lays waste to the notion that VF is the complete opposite of his online persona.laugh.png Edited by villagefarang

I think many of you missed this.

I am, or have been, a member of about 15-20 forums. Unless they are heavily moderated (which with TV's volume would be impossible), they all have negativity and personal attacks. It's the nature of the beast. In fact, imho, the CR forum is pretty mild.

In the ultimate expression of Forum Civility, no one bothers to respond to posts anymore. Just look at the numbers for the most recent topics, lots of 0s and 2s.

My question would be. Is it the quality of the topics or the members that has brought us to this level of civility?

Perhaps mere mortals withering in the glare of your dazzling prose?

And some should say nothing.

One thing I has noticed about Forums is the absolute reluctance to say they MAY have been wrong. Most get rather defensive instead. Seems like an easy thing to do but...

I liked this exchange and thought is might fit in this topic.

We must have the coolest, most laid back mod of them all.clap2.gif

You appear to be trying to keep this forum going singlehandedly. clap2.gifclap2.gifclap2.gif

There seem to be a lot of voyeurs who like to watch but don’t really want to participate, so I’m trying to give them something to read or look at.whistling.gifthumbsup.gif

Unfortunately, more often than not, I feel like a failed ventriloquist unable to get the dummy to speak.sad.png

I think it has to do with insecurity and the subsequent inability to actually discuss anything. Agreement is the only acceptable response it seems. Disagreement is met with threats and insults. Many seem to have had their sense of humor surgically removed, as well. Even agreeing to disagree appears to be asking too much. As you say it should be so easy but...

It can be entertaining to be nice to disagreeable people while watching them squirm and feel uncomfortable.thumbsup.gif
