You are correct in saying that CARM is a discussion board; however, it is NOT a bickering board. There is a big difference between the two. You can look it up in a dictionaryto be sure.I was under the impression that this was a discussion board. Where people can discuss things.
I used the word "please" so I was really NOT being rude.Telling a person to "shut up" is extremely rude.
I have done so to some posters. Doing to others is a viable option.If you're not interested in what a person has to say, you can always put the person on "ignore." There is no shame in that at all.
Really, do you think that scolding a poster for not posting the "correct half" of a post constitutes "good discussion"?
