    Default Kinder, Gentler & MORE Quality????????

    Yardley returned to POTUS Place!!!!!!!! I must admit I missed him. His return raises the skill level of the opposition, though I believe him to be misinformed about it being a kinder & gentler place. I also believe him only partially informed about much of which he posts, though he is the verbiage king.

    I did post, questioning someone's handle on the forum. Though wrong on the exact person, I have a feeling that it will be a while before dippity plays with us .

    & didnotfinish swore off POtus with a self serving post on the main forum, any one taking wagers on how long we will get to enjoy that . He'll get itchy fingers much quicker than anyone would want him to, & his return will add little to the Washington Generals .

    But on a more serious note, Granddaddy made a great post on the tax system & small business based on his experience. Some have tried to change the subject, & Granddaddy has asked them to start their own post on HC. I'm waiting, Yardley & sinner, cause I think Granddaddy will eat your lunch, he appears a knowledgeable player, which the sensible side on this Forum seems to be adding regularly.

    & on a lighter note, the winged & 4 legged wildlife find enjoyment on our property this time of year. There is a nice batch of widgeon (my favorite duck) when I feed the wild ones. So have a nice day, it's the only way to go!!!!!!!

    Too late, Marvin. He has already posted 4 times since swearing off. He's not going anywhere especially if Pittsburgh wins.

    Guys, the thread on accusing DNF of having an alias was:

    1) locked

    2) unfounded...DNF has no IP matches to any other accounts and stands behind his posts with his real name.

    Marvin, your initial accusation was uncalled for, unfounded, mean-spirited and defamatory. I'm shocked that after making the error, you are still publicly taunting.

    DNF, your public reaction was uncalled for. Once again, when you get down in the mud and sling it back, you're both covered in mud.

    I ask you all to use this POTUS section appropriately...please.

    I spent way too much of my weekend fooling around with stuff that I'd rather not have done, all in the name of trying to keep the RTF resource running smoothly.

    Marvin, all the things you mention in your subject line, are exactly how POTUS should be. Please make it kinder, gentler, and of higher quality.

    DNF, Marvin's sorry on some level that he accused you of something you didn't do....aren't you Marvin?

    Yes, in a way I am, I tried to convey that in the quoted post. I'll make up for that by laying off of what he does do for a while, does that work?

    Chris, I don't want you to come here any more than you want to come. I appreciate the opportunity to exchange viewpoints & find what others opinions are. Sometimes, separating the wheat from the chaff becomes tedious, & that's when things get out of hand .

    But as some on this forum are quick to point out, it's never their fault!!!!!

    Nothing in this post is meant to disrespect anyone, it's just the way things are.

    Chris, Thanks again!!!!!!

    Well, I do feel "Kinder & gentler," but it's doubtful I can improve on the "quality" of my posts!!

    RK could be either one, actually. After all, 'he' is still hiding behind his screen name, amid a multitude of calls on the main forum for everyone to use their real name...

    How's that for a conspiracy?

    Missed Yardley and I am glad he is back!

    He is the ONLY poster on POTUS that takes the time to detail his thoughts. I may not agree with him on most subjects but, I do respect how he handles himself on POTUS place with all the shameful name calling and snied remarks by those less articulate and way right of center.

    Without dissenting opinion, POTUS place would surely be dull. And, it looked for a while that all the insults and name calling was successful in running off dissenting opinion.

    If everyone would attack the message with well thouhtout remaks instead of name calling the messenger, we might all learn something!

    Oh and before I forget, I consider myself an old fashioned Conservative. Probably the only one here on POTUS. The rest might think they are Conservatives but, I see BIG Government written all over most so-called Conservatives posting on RTF!
