« Part 4: How To Flag (Report) A Post Part 5 of series Part 6: Fine Line of Inflammatory Topics »

In this community members are expected to treat each other with respect at all times.

There will always be disagreements and fusses between members. It is simply human nature. We truly encourage members to discuss and openly share their thoughts on a topic. It is how we all learn and life would be pretty boring if we all felt the same way.

That being said, this is not grade school. We don’t gang up in little groups to take sides or encourage others to do the same.

If you were at a local get together and got into a disagreement with someone, I am guessing you would take it outside instead of ruining the party for everyone. I expect the same here.

If you are not able to discuss a topic respectfully then you need to remove yourself from the topic. If you are unable to discuss a topic with a specific member then you need to choose to ignore that member or take the discussion off the boards. If you are unable to do either of these things, I will help you to do so.

I can not agree with you more Cricket. I like when I see a lot of different opinions. It’s a shame when someone thinks they know it all. And if they do that’s great, only share it whit others other than giving them hell. perhaps they are the ones having the bad day.

Agree 100%, but not sure what prompted this as it seems to have always been the code followed on this board. Sure someone may have a bad day or be off their meds, but most everyone else knows not to rise to that “false fly.” Hope it continues this way as LJs is a great place to learn, share and make friends. And, as you said, if there are any problems, I have no doubt that you can help those involved take them off this site.

Very good, Cricket… Well said…

I’m glad you’re controlling things before they get out of control… better now than later…

Very good advice… :)

Disagreement is inevitable. How we handle it determines how we are perceived. For those who run a business, you wouldn’t want customers to see you behave poorly. We need to show professional manners towards one another.

Good idea, Cricket. I have been other sites that it is not disagreement but one trying to be superior over a newbie and I did not like it at all. I have dropped off that one!
This is like a big family! I really don’t see much disagreement anywhere.
I love it!!..................Jim

Amen. I generaly stick to stumpy nubbs. Hey I can’t even keep up with that most of the time. And I have a mouse that lets me just click and you don’t exist any longer if you turn into an equine posterior. Pontificate all you want in your lonely little world.

Yep, let’s all just get along. Don’t know about others, but I learn something new nearly every time I go to this forum..for all you GOOD people. Not always the way I would do it, but at least I learned something new.
