"Netiquette" and being a good "Netizen" isn't about being a cog in "the system." It's about treating people with common courtesy and respect in a way that's understood online, in hopes of preventing misunderstandings and unnecessary drama/overreactions. I'm still wondering what exactly is wrong with that.

As for making issues public... Fine, when it's a professional/public matter. Tom's posting of the logs was fine, maybe even necessary, because the individuals who left did so with a certain vagueness and misdirection as to what was going on, leaving everyone else wondering about "conspiracy theories" and "mistreatment."

All it really seems to be to me is a little squabble about enforcing the rules of common courtesy and respecting your fellow forum-dweller. I mean come on - smileys? Is it really worth such drama? In general, most people prefer actual content in posts - that's why it's common sense.

Speaking of drama, I think if you've got a personal problem with someone else on the forum, either work it out privately, or ignore the person. Don't dredge it out for the entire forum to see, it's just not appropriate, as it's personal, not public info. Oh, and it's probably best to avoid interacting with someone who makes you mad, the anger will just make you unlikely to see anything but the negative.

Anyway, this stuff is tiring.

Actually he's making a point.
I've wasted a lot of time with the Internet and I agree with him that the Internet can be a very dangerous medium and it will most likely change the human society forever.
O well, what to do?

No one can do anything. World Changes. It was always so, and it will always be so.

hear hear.[/quote]I must agree. There have been too many fights and people living lately, so this is very tiring and sad. (but then again, anyone noticed how some of the people on AR's forums have come to save our asses from this madness? we are saved! )

I wonder why you're on Tom's side. And why you make a long post and then say it's tiring.

I think this thread has fulfilled its purpose. Call in the closers.

Why should we close it? There isn't any flaming or spamming going on. If the topic is washed out, let it just dwindle off to the last page of this forum.

Are there sides? I hadn't realized... It seems to me that people chose to leave of their own volition, and that it's their right to do so. Seb himself even gave Tom a nice little pat on the back for the same thing I mentioned, actually.

It's tiring because it's repetative, and I really don't see the point in all the unnecessary drama. Just because I find it tiresome doesn't mean I don't have an opinion.

I think that's a little unfair to say dude, ecause you know full well what implications that statement holds.

I completely agree with Tai, and she said pretty much all I wanted to, or felt was necessary to say. Thank you Tai.
