Seems to me that a small "regulars" minority think they speak for the majority. I'm pretty sure they don't. The rules are fine and I'm very happy to abide by them. It's what keeps me here.
Very true Piece.
When I first started posting I was pretty surprised at the level of abrupt, bordering on rude, comments returned.
These comments seemed mainly from the 'old gaurd' who seemed to think that the had earned the right to be 'abrupt'.
I am glad I continued and I think the mods have the balance just about right.
I started the 'Rangers' thread and on a few occasions asked for folk to moderate thier words.
I thought the mods were very liberal to let it run to over 5,000 posts. Even then some folk complained when it was closed [not me]
There does seem to be a bit of a bolshy attitude towards new posters which is a shame.
It must also stop lurkers from posting their first comments.
