Thread Name: BS: What to do about obnoxious MC members?
Subject: RE: BS: What to do about obnoxious MC members?
Oh, it happens, all right, Amos, and I've noticed it too. Who hasn't? I don't in the least mind people who make goofy jokes, while frequently also having something worthwhile to say. I do find it tedious when someone has absolutely nothing worthwhile to say or when they are repeatedly, deliberately offensive or mean-spirited...not in a way that makes a useful point, but out of sheer hostility. I do not wish, however, that I could control them, because it's not my business to control other people.
I find this forum interesting, because it's a microcosm of the World. You encounter all possibilities here, as you do in the World. That means...either you adapt and grow up emotionally...or you storm off in a huff, because the forum isn't as you would like it to be. You can do that in the World too. You can buy a house in a gated community, hire guards, grow big hedges around on all sides, and complain about how awful the people on the outside are. I feel sorry for someone who reacts that way to life.
Those who wish to improve the World must make a positive input to it themselves. I do. Spaw does. You do. Carol does. Bobert does. Lots of us do. I have no idea who Treehouse is and as yet no evidence of a positive input on his or her part.
