Post #1 of 9
I've only recently began coming here to read and post, and what advice I have gotten has been well appreciated, but I've noticed something disturbing. There is a thread here about roofs and workers and the tone is confrontational and hostile. I am used to that on political boards and such, but to see it here is upsetting. Isn't the purpose of a board like this to help each other out, to get and give ideas? I know my comments are from a newbie, but don't we/shouldn't we park our egos at the door when we come here? I mean if this John posts a list and someone doesn't use it, so what?
I use Mexico boards to help me through the resettlement and absorption into our new community. Differences of opinion have there place, granted, but isn't civility also a factor here? Now I haven't gone through the whole board so this was just an isolated incident (I assume).
