I understand the goal of bumping such a thread, but I believe it would be more effective if you clearly write what event made you do that.
I’m sure the majority of the forum members want to keep a friendly atmosphere here, maybe you should point out what is wrong ? Smile

I’d say it was for the Q8 thread. Could be wrong though. Smile

As his forum he smilingly viewed
They all searched for the light
Everything was alright
So his karma was greatly renewed

I’ve noticed with my short time here some people just don’t mesh well. Someone’s humor doesn’t matches another or what have you.

Sometimes it’s best to choose to be happy. Not respond or continue on with a conversation.

BUMP

Definitely true that there are different types of personalities that don’t get along here. But this particular thread is referring to malicious trolls that come around with the express purpose of causing discord.

Absolutely this! Everyone, please make a concerted effort to do this, which will really take the wind out of the sails of a troll that is trying to cause problems here. Just flat-out stony silence is what (s)he needs to see as a reaction, until I come along with the ban hammer.

What’s always interesting when I see this flare up is noticing, in myself, the “hey how did I miss that fracas!” — the evil urge to have gotten mixed into something better left alone.
Just walk away — silence — is for sure the best and hardest response. Good learning here.
Glad I missed whatever it was. Thanks SB.
