It seemed to start to turn when Woofie went to that great bridge in the sky to post ... and gained momentum when the last bluff of lawsuits and calls to the NSA were again seen for what they were ... and since 17 December, 2010 the place has been down right hospitable.

Differences of opinion have been discussed peacefully and rational arguments presented from various POV's.

Here's hoping this can continue into 2011, and all members shall be able to articulate their thoughts openly.

Yes, Lww, I would say that you have achieved peace
on this forum. Beyond peaceful, I'd say.
You must be very proud.

And my guess, Steve, is that this trend will continue. Enjoy.

I see you still haven't been able to find something positive to put in your signature line. Or, perhaps, that never was your true intention?

And here I thought H's post about considering changing his signature to something more positive was an indicator that maybe there was hope. And then the lost wanderer returns to her old form, and the negativity level goes right back up.

And they wonder why so few people want to spend any time here.

The post was made in attempt to help Deadpoked see that if he wishes to change minds in a spirited debate that the path is was taking will do nothing to further his case.

I would think that the body of the post was`more important than that particular line.

Have you noticed that we have one member who used to parade around the forum counting my posts whilst wailing and gnashing their teeth about the accumulated number ... and now that I routinely give them an updated count, saving them much time I'd assume, that same member is wailing and gnashing their teeth about how uncivil my assistance to them is?

Well ... old sawdust was troll at least equivalent to our big three of leftist trolls, so shame on the two righties for falling into the gutter with troll.

I also agree with one of our resident hypocrites ... sawdust should have received at least a year banishment IMHO.

When trying to made a salient point when have a serious discussion and exchange of ideas the statement is true.

Now if you are not involved in such with people who have no intention in having a discussion then it doesn't much matter now does it Hondo?

I thought you had a good post, but, surely, you understand
why Sheldon, and I cracked up when we read that line?
Memikey tried to explain it to you.

That one hypocritical line from you almost negated what was otherwise a fine post.
We all know you, Sev. Your sarcasm has been vicious on these forums.

I'm just trying to be honest with you. Sorry if you don't want to hear it.

Hey Sev.
When someone willingly aligns with the likes of Memikey and Sheldon, you gotta know they are a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic.

Memikey is generally an OK guy ... but he loves to play Devil's advocate to keep the pot stirred. That and he will often condemn Islamofascism just before he makes excuses for them.

My sarcasm has been earned on this forum.

Sheldon is a Jackwad who's only point is to incite people he disagrees with. One of the differences between you and him is that you choose to engage in a conversation.

While I may bust your balls on occasion I defend you more often than not.
