The Secret Cause of Flame Wars

Ahhh....if this topic isn't relevant around here this week. I almost hate to label it is "off-topic", but rather "news!"

    You are right it's been a tough week around here. Flamers respond to them and I'ts like adding fuel to a fire. Ignore them and they get bored and hopefully go away. Chow Jim

    A simple rule is to never take anything you read in an e-mail or message board as anything worth serious thought - dismiss it all as harmless fun and respond in kind.

    Cheers, John

    Amen, John. Absent mr chips proposal that more folks read the article, of course. Unfortunately, my gut says that anyone who should read the article doesn't think that this applies to them!

    I think flame wars go on because people don't wait until they're calm and have their thoughts collected and can articulate properly.

    I once wrote a long rant to the San Francisco Giants Fan Forum after falling into their fire pit (losing is not good) and sat back waiting everyone to respond demanding I be hired as General Manager.
    Nope.Nada,Nunke I got just one response. The response ?

    " Paragraphs are our Friends "

    I immediatly calmed down then started laughing out loud. Life is too short!
