How To Make This Board More Friendly
I receive a lot of info from this board: there is a lot of talent and a wealth of knowledge here.

Enjoy the constructive views; but sometimes it is becomes very destructive & demeaning.

Some cause others not to want to post because their comments will get thrown into the blender and disintegtrated.

As far as religious views: as long as someone is not calling out another denomination and is offering a "Positive" view, that should not be a problem. I may swing an Ultra and I may mention that on the board, but I will not degrade the Combat or others.

Also: when posting, women usually are more gentle with their comments and weigh what they project; me and others on the other hand can blurt out words on a board and not think it through.

Maybe this could help: if you have a wife or significant other, before we spew and give others a piece of our minds, read what you are about to post to them...........

If they feel insulted; so will the Seniors that read it on this board.

Words are cheap; the dictionary is full of them; constructive and destructive.............It is your choice whether to build a thread or destroy a thread.

Most people have to go to college for years to earn a degree in engineering; but someone with NO education can use a wrecking ball and decimate a building that took geniuses years to build.

You are the power behind your post: emit great, productive thoughts or spew have the choice.

Great sentiment and comments, Babe.
Sometimes, a constructive view or opinion
might entail questioning or challenging
some stance, or rule or viewpoint
that needs to be further
scrutinized to reveal it's true meaning to all of us.
Lively discussions, debates can be argumentative
and fruitful if it's fundamentally respectful
and it can reveal important intentions
and realities that often go unnoticed.
In a perfect world every assertion is positive
and needs to be recognized and supported as such,
and the status quo is fair and unbiased
but importantly, that is not the case here on earth
as most of us know.
There wolves in sheep clothing and those
who see us only for the profits we mean to them.

A farmer friend of mine told me long ago
that when 2 friends agree a lot
one of 'ems a liar.

We can give each other the benefit of doubt
and keep personal stuff, personal and away
from common view but I say if you don't believe
or like or go along with what someone or
something has to say
stand up and say it and defend it
until you learn differently
and be prepared to back it up.

There's a movement afoot to change
the senior softball game to a version of itself
very few of us will enjoy
and it's coming from somewhere and being driven
by a few and I want to know who they are
and why so they'll stop.
