Users (new & old) - Please Read Before Posting!

Post  Mrs. Sullivan on Fri Oct 10, 2008 5:38 am

Due to an unfortunate miscommunication in one of our threads causing a member to leave the forum, I am posting this advisory (as suggested by several forum members) -

Warning - Exchange of Ideas Ahead !

The threads on this forum are conceived as topics of conversation, which means, as in any conversation, that once you make your comment, anyone else joining the conversation may make a comment, and (as in the course of normal conversation) various other related topics may be introduced. While people are encouraged to stay "on topic", please be aware that any given topic has the potential to go in several directions at once.

If you are posting information that you feel strongly about and do not want the flow of information to be interrupted, it may be preferable to post said information on a personal blog and post a link to the group.

We hope to maintain the spirit of Brass Goggles in this forum, and wish it to remain a place for the free, open, polite, friendly, and sometimes ridiculously silly exchange of information & ideas. Above all, this is a place of camaraderie and community.

Thank you for your consideration.

Regards,
Mrs. Sullivan

Yup, dealing with neophytes and fringers is sometimes difficult. In my view such a warning is not ncessary, and yet clearly needed. markf

Some things are best left unsaid.

........Uhm.....Ok - I obviously missed something. Who left, and what about?? Shocked


As I said not so long ago on a certain topic on the BG forum - this whole 'arguments on forums' thing is SOOOO old, and done to death. Why the hell does anyone need to take whats said on th INTERNET (of all things!) so seriously?

As lilibat said:
You'd think some people have never actually used the internet before.
Sums it right up, really. Rolling Eyes

See this thread: http://sparegoggles.forumotion.net/tactile-f7/new-leather-bag-t166.htm

Thanks for doing the notice, Mrs Sullivan.

Markf's comment is apt.
