As some of you know, I don't actually spend a great deal of time on this board as I am also trying to run three businesses.

However I've just been reading some of the posts and I'm shocked at the 'superior' attitude that some of you have.

This discussion board was set up to allow ANYONE interested in AE to start discussions and talk about their interest, regardless of their expertise.

Over time some very knowledgeable people have joined and presented some interesting and articulate discussions.

However, some of those people seem to have decided that this board is mainly only for scholarly debate and posts must be laid out in a scientific way, or from such and such a resource, or not such and such a resource, etc. There does seem to be a 'superior' attitude with certain posts and posters.

This discussion board was set up to allow ANYONE interested in AE to start discussions and talk about their interest, regardless of their expertise.

Have you noticed that the new 'novice' members that sign up don't hang around for long? That is not acceptable.

If someone wants to post something, regardless of source quoted, layout, format, etc, providing it is relevant to AE and not fringe then that should be welcomed, not jumped upon and personal insults bandied around about how 'embarrasing' you find 'stupid things' quoted by the poster. If you are so well educated and up on your AE knowledge then point the poster in the right direction rather than jumping all over their ignorance.

Civility costs nothing and I'm going to make sure that it appears more frequently on this board. Rule 1.g of the Rules and Regulations (read them if you haven't) very clearly says 'Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users. Flaming or abusing users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning or ban. '.

I don't care who you are or who you think you are. I have never met any of you. I have no personal feeling for any of you. I will quite happily suspend the account of anyone, and I mean anyone, who cannot play nice and by the rules.

This board is provided by me, as a courtesy to you. Abuse that courtesy at your own risk.

I hope I have made myself clear and that you all get back to the spirit of which this board was originally created.

And remember, this discussion board was set up to allow ANYONE interested in AE to start discussions and talk about their interest, regardless of their expertise.
