Tips for posting on a forum

I saw this on another site and thought it might be something this site would be interested in:

Tips for posting on a forum:

Do not post messages that have personal attacks, profanity, flame language or insulting names.

When answering a thread, be very polite, non-judgmental, using the words "in my opinion" liberally.

Remember in posting or answering questions that the others on the forum may be from different cultures, ages, sex, and countries, so try to be specific and clear.

If you have a personal message for someone, use the email.

Pick your "subject" carefully so as to clearly define what your question is about.

If your answer to a question changes the topic, start a new thread so as not to confuse.

Always be kind and thoughtful of others. What is the point of being mean? Please and thank you's are appreciated.

When discussing controversial subjects such as religion and politics, tread lightly on other's opinions, everyone is entitled to their own thoughts.

Wow! More "kinder and gentler" stuff; how long will it be before the world turns into one giant ball of vanilla coated political correctness???
With that, let me wish you ALL a belated "Merry Christmas!"

Why can't you just tell it the way it is. People on this board always feel the need to sugar coat everything, the world is not like that. And when people post direct comments, the first rule on you list that goes out the window is the fact that everyone has their own opinion. Should rename this board to "City People pretending to be Country Folks".

In my humble opinion (IMHO)

I wonder if I fit that category "City People Pretending to be Country Folks?" Didn't the Platters have a hit song called The Great Pretender?

Must have missed something here Joe, never saw you claiming to be from the country. Never be offended by anything you read here, it's just everyone trying to say Merry Christmas in their own way:<)

Bob - Yes. I was kind of making a joke out of the remark I made. Anyway, Have a Happy New Year.

The way I see it, country people can live in the city, and city people can live in the country, but dead people can't live anywhere.

Thanks for tellin it like it is Walt

You seem to have quite a hang up about city people. Is there something you are not telling us?

DeadCarp    Posted 12-30-2002 at 09:55:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
Aw heck Walt, cut us some slack. We've finally mastered the language enough to control our profanity, what's wrong with diplomacy too? Granted this ain't no church pew but after cussing and fighting 4-legged hayburners all day, some sugah's kinda nice :)

BTW, did you know that Jesus was half Finn? Remember that Sunday School hymn, "What a friendly half-Finn Jesus"? lol

Bob /Ont.    Posted 12-30-2002 at 10:24:21       [Reply]  [Send Email]
DC that hymn is what a lot of merchants sing on Boxing Day morning as they look at all the empty shelves in their stores too.

What exactly is Boxing Day?

Bob/Ont    Posted 12-30-2002 at 10:34:15       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Scott it's the day after Christmas and got it's name form an old English custom of putting a gift in the mail box for the postman right after Christmas I have heard.

God is Finnish???????????

Mudcat49    Posted 12-30-2002 at 12:58:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
I don't know if Jesus is Finnish or not but his name is Andy. Just listen to the hymn. Andy he walks with me, Andy he talks with me, Andy tells me I am his own.

Scott Hansen    Posted 12-30-2002 at 13:19:22       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Andy from Finland.....I'm getting spooked.
