Default A Request to a Few Long Time Regulars...

I'm seeing, more and more, some of the guys that have been here for a REALLY long time have gotten excessively combative or condescending with your discussions and replies to multiple other users. There's a fine line between attempting to be sarcastic and witty vs simply being a smart ***.

This, of course, applies to everybody but I'm primarily addressing some of the long-time members that a)know better and b)should set the example for newer members on the appropriate etiquette that we attempted to establish from the beginning (20+ years ago).

If you aren't sure if this is directed at you (it is), I'll gladly start pointing youout, publicly!

Finally! Thank you Michael for this and I don't mind you pointing the finger at me if I'm out of line. It's been a long time coming and some people just cant refrain themselves from personal attacks at the drop of a hat solely for the difference in a discussion. Again hope this sets in for some of these folks.

Often times, those old members are just tuning up a newbie that comes on here acting like a jackass and doesnít respect the nature and history of TBH. Iíve seen that happen many times. TBH members do a pretty good job of policing their own, I think. Itís like the veteran on the ball club that tells the rookie to stop acting like a showboat...sometimes the veteran has to be a jerk to get it done right.

People just being hateful should be called out, but there ainít much of that....outside the CFB thread.

Nothing specific...but pick a thread, any thread and you'll probably see evidence of discussion deteriorating into argument. Just a friendly reminder at this point.

Some of you guys need to be careful not to rub a hole in your halos.

I agree lots of threads go south in a hurry now. I used to read a thread till I got to the 1st negative comment or combative comment then I would just move on. Finding that more and more I move on pretty quickly now.

Thanks for the reminder Michael. Part of the fun of TBH is asking questions and getting fresh responses. It's the interaction I like. If I just wanted any old answer, I would use Google. And even if it's been answered before, indulge us with a reply or just move along. No need to shame us for asking a question that's been answered before unless there is an active, on-going thread that I missed. I've added a number of folks to my blocked list for their terse or hateful responses.
