It seems to me that people are getting very aggressive with one another here lately. I know peeps have differences of opinion but there have been some bad vibes here lately and I don't feel it's a comfortable place to be at the moment. I don't expect it to be sweetness and politeness all the time and I do believe in freedom of speech. However, I see enough hassle in the real world, without reading bad-tempered posts here at WP, somewhere I come for a bit of peace.

Can't we all treat each other with a little respect and tolerance?

Hey look, I tried ok? I'm just a blunt person at times and I can't help it, some of the time. But, I have noticed people getting aggressive with each other...

I'm for one am going to try to calm myself down now.

It's my fault, isn't it?





Wait... it's not my fault, it's YOURS.




Nope, I was right the first time. :P

I'd chalk it up to 'cabin fever'.

I've noticed a slight change as well. The forums used to
display mostly the positive sides of AS like
fairness,attention to detail,compliance with rules,
friendly approach.Now we're seeing more of the flip side - arrogance,egotism,self-delusion,bitterness,
misunderstandings,defiance of authority. Some days
I even enjoy my work more than reading some of the
posts and that's saying something !

There are times when I've felt like doing this before, and I have witnessed that before. However, I have not been banned because I have not initiated being aggressive before.

I have something REALLY REALLY REALLY profound to say and it's of critical importance that I convey this message....
