Default Things we should have learned in Kindergarten.

I have noticed a lot of bashing between us members here and I don't like it. I'm sure you don't like it, either. We all know we belong to the best firearms forum on the internet and I'd like to keep it that way. I see way too much jabbing and poking and 'one upsmanship' here lately. Let's try to treat each other with respect and answer questions or inform each other without (basically) calling each other stupid for having a differing opinion. If you think someone's bs'ing you, fight back with facts, not insults. Let's talk to each other the way you would like to be talked to. Sometimes the words and attitude we use put others on instant defense and then the sparring begins. I have also noticed a bit of a 'clique' forming which is wonderful. It's good to make friends here and to be friends online and offline but don't use that friendship to gang up on others with inside jokes and banter that is meant to not include all.

So, come on, folks. Let's all play nice and treat each other with respect. After all, we have all joined FTF because of our love of firearms and our interest in sharing knowledge and learning. We have a common ground here. It's okay for some of us to be 'different'.

We all should have learned respect and how to 'play nice' and share in kindergarten.

Besides, we don't want someone coming to FTF as a guest, seeing the arguing going on and decide this might not be the place for them to come and learn about firearms.

Agreed. Basic rules of the house- do not wear spurs in bed, act like grownups, and treat folks with common courtesy.

Flame wars will be doused with the fire hose. If you have a valid complaint, notify the mods. If you cannot play nice, you will be invited to play somewhere else.

Umm.......what's wrong with spurs in bed? That could go along with some role playing.

You weren't supposed to see that. I whispered it to C3. Quit eavesdropping.
