Default Re: Why so much hostility?

It's true OP.

I know of one forum hyscience/Harry he has a very good way to deal with this.
1. He is a moderator
But beter
2. Posts are normally started like this;

Dear Harry,
I disagree with you post b/c of the following reasons... etc.

Gets as aswer;

Dear Eerde,
I can see you point but...... etc.


If the main players on a forum start with a very civil "Dear XYZ" it becomes much harder to post 'ad honiem' or even for trolls to get a grip on a forum.

just my $0.02 worth....
