: McSpotlight: Qx, please, if it's going to go to backbiting, take it to email. The actual content of this thread is decreasing daily as the temperature increases...

Qx: ...if you recommended that everybody who engages in so-called "backbiting" is told to take to e-mail the core issues may never get through. Now if you'll excuse me...

McSpotlight: Ahhhhh, what fun it is to be under attack from all sides.

Most people do not like being insulted, nor really to read about others being insulted. Tit for tat insults are pretty boring for everyone to read, and finally insults do not win arguments.....SO, it would be better for everyone if the debating room consisted only of argument, with no insults at all. However, it is extremely difficult if not impossible for us to remove backbiting/abuse/insults etc from people's messages when the message is a mixture of argument and insults, without changing the meaning of the message being posted. Therefore, the only solution is for people to excercise self restraint when posting messages, and to remember that abuse will not actually help you win your argument. and if you really can't manage that, then to take your insults off site and keep them to private emails. And that, in a nutshell, is what we are asking all contributors to do.

As a moderator I can say I get very bored of reading the insults from both sides, whereas I find it interesting to read the arguments, whether I agree with them or not. Please all help keep the debates interesting and on topic.
