RANT: I can’t help but notice how some people’s answers to posts are just plain rude!
I know that generating discussion is a key element to any good forum, but provoking arguments for no good reason just seems immature and unprofessional.
There’s an impatience that comes across occasionally with one-line retorts that are unnecessarily argumentative at best and downright abusive at worst.
What possible purpose does posting like that serve?
Now, I’m not against a good debate, and I can appreciate that sometimes debates can escalate into an argument if not handled well, but sometimes it seems that folk get ‘mugged’ for no good reason.
From a personal perspective I have lost a degree of respect for people that can’t seem to control their negative emotions and unfortunately this behaviour isn’t confined to newbies. Some Warriors, both senior and new, demonstrate how to give constructive criticism and great feedback on a regular basis - they might be quite blunt and direct but they know that their words are heeded a lot more if they avoid being rude.
So come on you guys, chill out a bit and take a few deep breaths before pressing that submit button. Sending it may make you feel better in the short term, but to others it'll just make you look petty and stupid.
