Rumours.

I am posting this here in this section, rather than hiding it in “other stuff” so it will be more visible. If JK wishes to move it, then so be it.

As some of you will know, I am fairly new to the world of computer “forums” and “boards”, but I feel that I’m “getting the hang of it”. What I have learned though, is that there are most definitely two sides to everyone's stories. It appears to me that people are too keen to “air their views” without consideration for the effect that it will have on both their own reputation and that of the respondent. I site the recent grumbles between the two Johns. I have read through the limited correspondence that I have seen on my computer screen and have made a judgement. Whether or not it is the correct one is immaterial. Why should I feel that I need to “take sides” in an argument between two people that I don’t know, over something I know little about and I’m sure are both perfectly pleasant people?

Human nature. That’s the answer. The human race is always divided over something. Whether it’s tangible like a land claim or ethereal like religion, I know that people, when pushed, will generally push back, especially when the contact is not of a physical nature. I mean, who in their right mind (and not under the influence of alcohol) would pick on a person twice their size and strength in everyday life? Not me, that’s for sure. Anyway, the bizarre point of this morning’s rambling is quite simple. If someone has something to say to me, that they know I’m not going to like, then I suggest that we have any discussion in private. After all there are two sides to every story and I assure them that I am very, very sure of my facts when I go into an argument, especially in public. Please don’t hide behind gossip and innuendo because, in the nature of things, it will come out in the open sooner or later and I can assure you that I will respond in a very human manner……..

My 'take' on things.

The forum for me is a bit of fun where I can read what other like minded individuals are thinking, doing and learning. If you get too carried away it stop being fun and quite frankly I wouldn't want to be involved any further. I think that the majority of members feel the same way too.

I know it is more complicated for trade members but at the end of the day they decide to post and if its something inflamatory then they should not be surprised if their competitors and colleagues turn round and say your talking a load of ****.

This is my hobby and I want it to be fun, not a slanging match between somebody I've never met.

Chris

Complicated? Do you mean political?
There is a special section for them to get "complicated"

What are you doing, you'll ruin the entertainment!! The flame wars are the best bit, there's nothing better than watching David B making an ass out of himself.

Is he still "suspended"? I'm sure it's been over a week!

Jono, you shouldn't. I don't see why you feel you need to. Just sit back and watch it unravel, then you can make your own mind up about the 3rd side.
