Sarcasm Will Not Be Tolerated - but it should be
I absolutley commend WebRing in allowing members to express their opinions in this, and the Managers forum. Many of the posts have been opinions mixed with attacks on WebRing and/or other members. I sincerely hope that those that are angry about the changes at WebRing will not take it out on others in unproductive ways. While I think "sarcasm" used to make a point is not bad, disrespectful attacks on WebRing or other member's posts or points of view are completely uncalled for. Anyone who thinks they can "bully" WebRing or other members into changing their points of view are doomed to fail. As everyone who reads my posts knows, I don't pull any punches. I do try very hard to maintain a reasonable level of respect...well, some of my late night posts get a little edgy...but I'm human. This really isn't a venue to "flame" others.
Despite my intent to leave WebRing when my rings are taken away, I do plan on seeing this through to the end. Whatever the final path the WebRing system chooses, I think we all need to give them an opportunity to hear our points of view...and make their own decisions.
Nice post, njjimf. I think the general line thatís needed is respect for each other and our varying opinions. Seriously, I donít think anyone could have said the following better ďI sincerely hope that those that are angry about the changes at WebRing will not take it out on others in unproductive waysĒ.
I seriously donít have any issues with anyone on these forums or these systems (or even the www). Life is too short to spend time unhappy and miserable.
I would like to have some of the best webrings available on this system and on others, and I think most of the other users would like that too for their own projects. To reach those goals, I think we all should work together (even if we disagree) towards a mutual goal in understanding the new webring system and how it might work for us as ring masters and ring members.
RE: "I absolutley commend WebRing in allowing members to express their opinions in this, and the Managers forum."
They have now taken to removing posts that are not directed at any one person but are critical of the micromismanagers.
So much for freedom of speech!
It is all "damage control" from here on.
