This has been an interesting read. I hate to see that there are members here who have bad feelings toward one another. However, as in real life, it happens. I realize that this is a message board and therefore, I don't allow it to get underneath my skin. I have opinions, as does the next person but anything I claim to be "fact" I will surely have it backed up.
Anyway, I'm glad to be here. As far as the mods go, they should post and interact with the members just as everyone else does. Sure, they are held to a "higher standard" but, they have their opinions as well.
**After thought - Reading a person's typed words leaves so much open for interpretation for the reader of the post. Without the ability to see facial expressions or to hear voice inflections, sometimes it helps to give the poster the benefit of the doubt.
Smilies are good, too...
I of course believe that you should be able to question what is said on the boards and join in the conversation.
It's good to see the moderators have fun too.
