I now sometimes go out my way a little just to annoy these people and exagerate my opinions and its quite easy to see who are the troublemakers.. people are like glass, you can see right through them.. I was always brought up to treat others the way I would like to be treated but sometimes that doesnt work.. (


Cant see much that is spiteful and horrid...it is not nasty or horrid to have a difference of opinion about something and voice it, providing it's not obviously vindictive or personal.

As for the last line...me too, but I was always encouraged to speak my mind, listen to others opinions and try to understand why and how someone could have a different opinion/view. I was also taught that respect should not have to be earned, it should be given without question and only withdrawn with good reason.

I think an important measure of civility is how well differences are resolved and meaningful dialogue continues. Hats off to management and members for creating an atmosphere where ideas can be discussed. Afterall, does anyone expect everyone to agree all the time?

In my opinion, the important thing is to have manners and respect for the opinion of others, even if it does not tally with yours. For example, you may think that someone's ideas for training are a pile of pants, but is neither polite nor constructive to say just that. By all means, ask for the reasoning behind it, but bear in mind that for everyone who disagrees, there are others who agree. My Mum used to say "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". A bit anodyne for me, but then I will never be as lovely a person as my mother was.
Inside every springer, no matter how well trained, is an idiot trying to get out

I think the one think that hasn't been aired is the poster who comes on, asks for advice, doesn't agree with what was given and then does their own thing. They then reappear several months later asking how to solve a problen through not taking on board what was suggested in the first place.

I can understand why the atmosphere can seem somewhat tainted in certain circumstances, likewise the poster who hasn't got the balls to say sorry I cocked up, but how can i procede, should expect some short shrift.

Surely the circumstances decide the comment :think:
