Thread Name: The future of Mudcat. What do YOU think?
Subject: RE: The future of Mudcat. What do YOU think?
shambles - I agree with your comment on the Bobby Sands thread ... there were very very strong emotions expressed in that thread by Mudcatters with opposing points-of-view. And perhaps some of the reading was 'hard' - but most of it was civil. When in battle of words, where personal relationships are to be preserved, you can still fight fiercely if you attack your opponents views and comments; not his/her person. Some of the Bobby Sands comments crossed the line, but I think most Mudcatters tried their best to respect the humanity of their adversaries. Seems to me Big Mick is one of the masters of that approach, but others did a good job, too.
