Sometimes I wonder if I'm merely an insensitive pig...

... or whether we gotten a lot more PC, and a lot more touchy.

Frankly, had I been around and had more time to spend here, over the last several week, I most assuredly would have voted "Keep" on some of the nodes which have recently been considered and reaped.

Princess and the Pea, anyone?

    I think we are living in a time where political correctness gets "redefined", especially in the English speaking world.

    But while the maximo leader from Mar-a-Lago is using at least his own twitter account to spread his "charming" insights, we are confronted here with regulars (with IMHO pretty obvious mental problems) who ride rude attacks, while cowardly hiding in the dark as AnoMonk.

    Not opposing this - especially when they single out one "target" after the other - will consequently lead to a loss of good contributers and hence to a decline of the monastery.

    I hope my POV is clearer now, of course YMMV.°

    °) I'll use an anonymous account to insult you later. ;)

      But why worry about rude attacks from AM? Do they harm you; your kids; your relationships; or your future?

      And did you drop a word of phrase in the para beginning "(n)ot opposing ...?" Perhaps a pronoun referring to the OP's proposal? Pls clarify: what are you "(n)ot opposing?". You can even do so in the anonymous insult, if you wish.1.

      1 It hadn't occured to me that one might place a footnote below the sig.

        I've already met some people who avoid PM because of the "tone", I mean also active contributors who blog or post on stackoverflow.

        It's sad to loose quality in exchange for some psychos and aggro nerds.

        Well whatever, I think it can't be helped.

        We need to settle on the level of badly formated FASTA questions and alike.
