The Loach Forum Archives (6)

OT: The Tone of this Forum

Well, I'm a rank newcomer to this forum, but just in the few weeks I've been reading and posting, I've noticed a few qualities upon which I would like to comment (sorry - I'm a process expert professionally!).

The overall tone of almost all posts has been extremely pleasant and courteous. The few exceptions, some of which were frankly IMO rude and hurtful, were countered with tact, kindness, and gentle redirecting. On most other lists I've seen, there would have been 3 or 4 flame wars just in the few weeks I've been here, based on the posts I've seen, but not here. Participants (even the targets) remained calm, polite, and moved on.

I have been extremely impressed with these behaviours, and it gives me hope that the future of the 'net may really be secure ;-)

Thank you, all of you, for providing such an interesting and, dare I say, mature, environment within which to discuss our common passion.

Cheers,

Kit.
