Good points all, one of the big problems with writing posts is that you are not able to see the other person's expressions or hear their tone. Live inter-action gives us so much more feedback than most of us really think about, however that said there is never an excuse for being rude. There is a wonderful philosophy call Desiderata that was found in Old Saint Paul's Church in Baltimore dated 1692 that I think subs it up quick nicely...

"Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexation to the spirit."

I think this is where the icons are really helpful. When you say something out loud, like "Oh give me a break!" you might sound funny or mean, depending on your tone. With the icons, you can supplement what you're saying with a thumbs up or a laugh to show that the message is not intended to be mean spirited.

Very good advice, thank you!

If I may suggest something—if you're posting something that could be considered rude or something, even though you don't mean it that way, add in a smiley or two to convey your mood.

Default Re: Please think before posting.

I am new here and i have been reading a lot of the post to familiarize my self with how things work here. I have to agree some of the post are rather rude and offensive, and it actually makes me think about what i want to post out of fear that my post will be criticized or that somebody will post something mean. An example would be when a new person posted today in the help section asking how to PM they got a rather nasty response of " why don't you read the rules" there are much nicer ways that could have been answered. I am now glad that i didn't post asking the same thing. I do agree that people have opinions but maybe so of those opinions could be worded a little nicer. This of course is just my opinion.

I'm sorry that you've felt that you need to hold back on posting to the forums for fear that someone might criticize or be mean. I'm pretty new here myself and it actually took some courage for me to post this, I wasn't sure what kind of response I was going to get. I'm so happy to see that that people agree that we need to keep the rudeness off the forum. We have a great group of people here at and I am so glad that i joined.

I agree with Ivie and Alinomex, well put. Think before you type and remember that there is a "real" person at the other end big and small kids alike.
