After reading this forum during the past few weeks, I want to know your secret.

Where are all the insults and petty fights?
Where are all the troublemakers?
Where are all the annoying moderators who can find a "rule violation" in every post?

How do you do it? Is there some sort of subliminal message that works as a sedative blinking every few fractions of a second? Or do you have a "Stepford Wives" thing going on?

This place is so civilized compared to everywhere else on the internet, it's spooky.
Seriously, I love it. But I want to know your secret.

Alkis,

I can not respond as a moderator, but that is a big reason we all like it here- Moderators are great-helpfull with a sense of humor and the people who gather here are really nice- I've been watching and reading your posts around to-- and have enjoyed them--- although I am one that will turn to a WT when I am at a block wave laugh ---Welcome to the best site in town

No Stepford people that I'm aware of Alkis. Marita has a standard for mods and members alike. She expects all members to treat others as they want to be treated.
Being on a forum should be fun and informative.

Hey, didn't you see the "Nice people only" sign on the door? The mods whack you over the head with it when you misbehave!

PiB ducks for cover from the whacking sign!

Alkis, I to have been to a a couple of other sites and found I was very offended by some of the language. I like the maturity that is displayed here, the similar likes and dislikes thats related among the members. It's also knowing that one can feel comfortable in emailing a Mod if they have a concern. This is a forum that one can learn much just by reading; a forum that a decent sense of humor can be enjoyed; a forum where one can ask questions and not be embarrassed by doing so.
This can only be done through the caring work of the Administrators and Moderators.

Alkis, do you mean you didn't get the box of mood stabilizers in the mail when you joined here? Just kidding. wink

I think that because flaming and fights are not permitted, those that want to do that get bored when they can't instigate so they move on. lol

Apparently I've fallen behind on posting and am failing to maintain my "reputation" here. I'll try to do better in the future! laugh

lol Nice, isn't it Alkis? I have no desire to be insulted or to do any insulting. This is the first place that I ever joined and it's the one for me. I have glanced at a couple of other sites and they just don't do it for me. At GameBoomers you can learn a lot, get help with games, your computer, get puzzled, have fun and make real friends. Neat eh? wink

Alkis, the secret is a very simple one--
  • first, we have the best members on the internet
  • second, Marita has established a set of standards, and the mods enforce them


From what I've seen looking at some other sites, we are an island of civility in the sea of the internet... bravo
