comments on comments

Post by LC&LC » Wed Mar 27, 2013 9:53 pm

In the last few days, I've been really surprised by some of the messages I've read on different topics on the forum,.. whether it's bad language, insults or mean comments directly addressed to other forum members.
I may speak for a few of us if I say we don't want to read this... Life is difficult as it is, we read the forum to share our passion, not to read harsh words
if you're angry at someone, just write a pm, save it as a draft, re read it a few hours later and send it if you're still upset and ready for the answer.

but most of all, I find such an attitude most disrespectful to our beloved moderators.
I really don't think it's up to Jarkko, Maarten, Mary or any of the moderators to waste time deleting the offensive messages (even though we are grateful that they do)
they are so dedicated to provide us with the most up to date information, tell us about concert dates and provide us with the pre sales links... if all we can do to thank them for their help, is to spare them that task, why don't we try to be a little more civilised?

My intention is not to give a lesson to anyone, but please, please, could you direct your anger somewhere else?
many thanks

I totally agree with this. Just because you do not agree with something someone says, it does not mean you should insult them - that is the crux of discussion, people having different views and discussing them.
