I know as far as I'm concerned, as soon as a thread turns nasty, I stop reading that thread and go onto something else.

True, but be aware that many folks are set up to receive email notifications when a thread they've subscribed to has a new post. That email usually goes out pretty quickly after submitting a post so, even though we can edit what is seen on the forum... the original, unedited post will probably be sent out via email before you ever have a chance to edit. That toothpaste just ain't going back in to the tube.

I have found myself canceling a large # of posts for the toothpaste back in the tube explanation that Ricko just mentioned. I then re - type and re compose the post after giving some more time to think of what I am posting.

Another thing to remember this year is it's an Election year (NO FOLKS THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST) and thus tempers are often running short cause Well, You see I support this candidate and the guy I was just chatting with supports THAT candidate (Please note the lack of names, or even offices) and I'm still ticked off over that when I read....

By the way that does not apply to this post.

I did not know that Rick, although I subscribe to several threads. It seems to me it might be useful to have a delay after a reply is posted, say 15 minutes or so? And then have the last edit be the one sent? Does the forum software allow for such a configuration?
Of course, if we all used our noggins and kept our cool the first time, it wouldn't be problem........

Once I got into a "discussion" with someone in another forum about my job and the company I work for and the discussion started to turn sour. I just stopped commenting and he kept on persisting I stand up for myself. So I went in and edited all of my post by erasing everything I had said. Boy oh boy he got mad. So mad he was banned from the forum for ever, or so I thought. He came back as another name and tried to start the rant all over again and got banned again.

Oh well, some people are just bad apples I guess.

Had the same thing happen to me: this jerk then started to send me personal messages} I stopped that by blocking his email.

I always read my answers to different threads over and and sometimes re word them or just not post them. I try to answer the question asked. That would be my opinion and I realize that there are other opinions there as well. It is all these different opinions that I have gained some really good and helpful solutions from. It does bother me to see some people give bad info to someone asking a question about being safe or lawful. I have been drawn into a couple heated discussions and regretted my part in it afterward. I too think the Mods on here do a great job in keeping this a nice forum to be part of.

You know, those 4 simple words sure pack a lot of thought and meaning. I remember Mom used to say these words all the time (I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers and I guess we were always sparing with each other) Thanks for memory.

sometimes when someone trys to add a little humor on the subject it is recieved by some as sarcasm ,i see alot of post where the responder needs to lighten up ,but i personaly read these posts for ,info,entertainment and some times a little venting but never take it without a grain of salt. even tequila taste better that way
i always enjoy this site

It is almost as easy as the old "do unto others". I try to convey my message nicely but it doesn't always sound right so after reading what is about to be posted I sometimes give up and erase the whole thing.

It is not always easy if you read information that you know is not correct to debunk it without offending the poster but sometimes necessary. Try to be gentle and provide a source i.e. a link to back up your correction.

Also if it is your personal experience, say so. Just because your whatever it is did whatever it did does not mean everyone's or anyone else will have that problem.

I moderate at a not RV related forum but the hot topic posts were the same. Politics number one. Guns another. It got so bad at one point we had to do away with the general discussion, not related to the forum area. It was sad to see it go so let's hope that never happens here.
