Subject: RE: BS: Are fewer people posting?
Hello Dave! Can you poss give the context of the above quote? What was the poster commenting on exactly? I haven't been a contributor for all that long, but at first it seemed a lovely forum for interesting discussions and thought-provoking ideas. However, there seems to have been lately a degeneration into nastiness and outright bullying which sits ill with the general ethos of friendliness and respectful exchange of opinions. I feel it's only half a dozen or so who take over threads and slug it out between them, firing insults and vituperative venom at eachother and viciously attacking innocent participants caught in the crossfire. I imagine this would put people off returning to post. There are nonetheless still so many delightful, intelligent and interesting folk here that I enjoy Mudcat and value my fellow posters as if they were friends.
