A Pubic Service Announcement.....

Sharing something about yourself is a a good way to start relationships in any group...Filling out your profile accomplishes this.

In any free and open forum we pay the price of that freedom by allowing off topic posts from weirdos, nuts, and the mentally deprived. I prefer the inconvenience of skipping over these posts to any kind of censorship, but to those new readers and posters who are confused by these posts, I recommend reading the profiles of all posters. If the post smells like a rat, the profile is empty, and there are few previous posts...odds are its a rat..

Generally, the serious ones take the time to fill out their profiles. Those who slink in the shadows and snipe for the amusement of creating chaos or other personal agendas do not have the courage to stand in the light.

Everyone here has there own way of dealing with these posters....Some feel the need to reply to these posts and to expose them for the junk that they are. And there is some validity to that position if you believe that you are protecting the integrity of the board or of those who are an integral part of the valuable give and take which occurs in this forum. The downside to this strategy is that it generally adds fuel to the fire and encourages the idiot(s) to continue. I prefer just ignoring them. My time and energy are better spent on productive issues.

The flea on my A$$ does not require major surgery...

Love to All,
