    Wink

    Thank you all for the p.m.ís.
    I am still unsure exactly whom I should and then of course should not ignore.
    Is there any way somebody could build a web page evaluating our fellow POTUS posters?
    Accurately analyzing their performance at shoveling it out or scooping it up.
    So Iíll know if I should post under them or not.

    I don't think anyone really wants to ignore anyone else.

    But when a poster consistantly gets personal.....I guess people have to do something to avoid getting caught up in the personal type exchanges.
    I mean it always does a little, and is usually forgiven.
    I have done it (I admit it)it was my fault, I decided to do it.
    I also let stuff go sometimes as I know where it is going.
    Some just simply cannot excercise that kind of control!!!
    I enjoy everyone's posts for the most part....as I am sure you all get my humor!!!!!

    If I feel I have crossed the line, I have reached out via pm and apologized or at least tried to mend fences.
    Most cases it has helped.
    Some never responded.


    It will ease up a little when those of us who train dogs and run tests or trails can get out and get started!!!!!!!!!!

    The first four original contributors to this thread have been guilty of more personal attacks than the rest of all of POTUS combined. I have ignored this, because frankly I don't care, and have largely ignored the personal crap ever since it got Gibson canned.

    But when the same four who are the largest offenders of personal attacks then accuse others (wonder who?) of the same, its really ridiculous.

    I have noticed recently, that despite my successful effor not to name call, I have been under increasing attacks for asking for references or citations when claims were made that were questioned. OTOH, I have been told to stick my head up someone's a$$, because that's "what I do". So for the person who said that to then whine about things here, tells me that they can dish it out......but sure can't take it. The majority of us here get along fine, despite disagreeing quite often. I only have "issues" with the first four on this thread. Maybe if TWO things happened here, we could all get along.

    1) try our best to limit comments to subject matter or opinions of the matter, and not of each other or professions, and limit name-calling and personal attacks.

    2) not be so sensitive when someone disagrees with your views

    I was sad to see Gibson go, and have since joined his photo page on FB. While I thought he could be an arse sometimes, who among us doesn't have their moments? But the truth is, I nor anyone else, prompted his departure. His OWN actions or lack of actions resulted in his leaving. He was not voted out, or petitioned to leave....other than by the one person who counts, when he broke the simple rules.

    I hope I have not offended anyone with this post.
