I’m assuming this has been sparked by the thread I started?
The thing I don’t get is that the title was “Reply to david603…” so why would other people choose to read it and get annoyed with the content when it wasn’t even addressed to them? I have no problem with people jumping into the debate, but to stifle it simply because they don’t like it? If it was david603 who complained, then fair enough (although he doesn’t strike me as that type at all (that’s a compliment David)), but people who aren’t even involved in it? Why not just not read it?!
I also really do not understand comments about that one post putting people off being on here. What proportion of the posts on here are debates / arguments? If they dominated the board, then fine. But they don’t! Not even remotely! It makes me wonder what other motive might be behind that position. Heaven know’s what though!
Perhaps people complain because they don’t like one side of the argument? If that’s the case, then surely the right thing to do is to argue your position, not run to daddy complaining?
Perhaps people complain because they don’t like some of the participants? If that’s the case, then why not just avoid their posts?
Am I annoyed that my thread got stopped? Actually, I couldn’t care less. The 4 hours I took to compile the research supporting my case was not wasted: I made my point. It was not answered with any credibility. That’ll do me
