In one of my last posts I suggested we not reply to the flamers, trolls etc. and other such inflamatory posts. There is a difference between a difference of oppinion expressed in a "civilized" manner, which we each have with many or few as the case may be, and outright goading, racism, on and on and on. Looking at a few of the posts again today, I see a worrying trend on these forums. There seem to be more aggressive posts than ever. If we are not careful there will be nothing left here other than the goading by the few and the responses of the many. There is no need to define what is an obvioulsy inflamatory post because, to steal a phrase, "We can't define it but we know it when we see it". Those seeking a response by goading are happy when others take the bait. If the bait isn't taken then maybe they will stop fishing.
