There was another thread that now is gone. There have been several instances throughout the years. One poster is gone, maybe another. Others have left in the past.
I think it's great that you have a light, good attitude here and I have not seen any vitriol coming from you. It is here, though and I am not immune to it.
To just brush this aside as something that is now solved, now that a poster has left us, is not a long term solution in my opinion.
I guess it is a very human/ animal trait to pick on the weak, and here weak can mean all sorts of things that we usually don't think of as weak.
If we see someone headed for a fall, someone that is easy to humiliate because their come backs will only dig them further in the hole, what is the best thing to do?
When someone tries to deal with it by posting a level headed reply ( like Dale did) that seems to allow for retraction and less knee jerk reaction- should we give that a little time to work, before starting on the frenzy?
Like I said, I am not pointing fingers as I know I have participated in less than gracious discussions here. I am saddened though that a situation that I think was salvageable, ended badly. For all I know they could have learned something positive here.
Remind me of this when I blow it.
