I've been away for a while. I would like to know when all the snide, snarky and viscious comments and replies started to be the norm around here. This used to be a helpful informative site that self monitored such mean comments.

When did it start? When did the Internet start?
This still is a helpful informative site.

I'm sorry you feel this not as comfortable a place. You mentioned being gone a while. I think sometimes forum regulars see the same old questions and complaints from people who obviously didn't even do the simplest of "search this forum" and get a little short. How many posts on the price of ebooks should there be? But overall I still think there are a lot of great and helpful people on the forum.

FreeDove, I totally agree with you. I don't think there's ever a need to stoop to the level that some on here stoop to. It's really a shame. They should stay off the forum if they can't act like decent people. Just my opinion.

That's still not a reason to be rude. just don't comment if they have nothing constructive to say.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:30:03 AM PDT
Then people make multiple posts because they aren't getting an answer. I'm not condoning rudeness.

Neil Lubin says:
you're correct of course Becky. And thanks for not condoning rudeness. :-)

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:32:43 AM PDT
Actually, pointing out the rudeness of others is the height of impoliteness, itself.

However, is pointing out to someone that reading the user guide would be helpful rude? Asking or suggesting the check out posting guidelines or asking them to post in the correct topic, or to do a forum search to find out if the question has already been answered rude? Because even if one answers nicely and suggests any of those things, that answer is often met with anger and defensiveness.

actually, you're making my point for me. Nothing constructive to say.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:34:08 AM PDT
I find the response you get is often based on how the original question was phrased. I agree sometimes it gets out of hand but in most cases that I've read, it takes two to argue. JMO

true, but it makes new people very uncomfortable and not wanting to come back. I think that some folks here have made this their "territory".

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:36:20 AM PDT
Uh...the OP opened the door with the question. But ONLY people who agree are supposed to walk through? Please.

No, Folina. You just don't have to comment unless you have something constructive to say.

Neil Lubin says:
It's a shame. You shouldn't have been wounded in the first place.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:39:31 AM PDT
Just place the folks you don't like on "ignore", and you never EVER have to suffer them again. Please begin with me. It's just up ^there^ to the right, across from my name. Thanks ever so.

Neil Lubin says:
See, there's no need to say that. If you just act correctly I wouldn't have to put you on ignore. All constructive opinions should always be welcome.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:41:06 AM PDT
But you my dear, are not the arbiter of what is constructive, nor yet whether or not someone may choose to post in an open forum.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 9:41:10 AM PDT
That's the second time you've judged, in your own infinite wisdom, that Folina's comment is not constructive and yet, I see nothing constructive in your comments.
