Angry Forum Etiquette

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Recently I happened upon a post of interesting discussion pertaining to the manner in which we correct/point out things to each other and manners in general. I just wanted to point out as a Psychiatric Nurse...my observations.

Certainly some manner of politeness is required to respond to each other....but...personality and method can be an individual thing. Individuals that are direct/to the point...can be received as abusive or berrating. Via email and text..it is difficult to place intonation, nonverbal cues, and my beloved sarcastic inuendos. On the other hand...an individual may have a mentoring spirit....wisdom applied to the new guy in us all (particularly me) and a nurturing(although it sounds really wussy like) manner that fosters growth amongst the motorcycle lifespan.

My point with all this is that we need both of you in the forum. I as a new guy appreciate your no bs attitudes (cuz I want to live not die on the road) and your vision of a better Vulcan 750 rider. I say..be who you are! If I don't like it....I will complain and/or boycott your behinds! Just like I did to West Fort Worth Kawasaki after they screwed me over on my tires(see other thread). Just thought I would throw in those few cents. Stay cool.

As with any community, there are some old battles that occasionally flare up on here. In the thread you mention, Kimmerling, Fergy was spot-on: those critiques of KM would've best been done in private, and for some of the reasons you mention (can't always properly infer tone or intent from a written comment).

99% of the time, though, this is all about being helpful and making sure we ride safely and come back to post another day.

So, how did that turn out? Did we do any good at all?

On behalf of all the members who inevitably have trouble avoiding your 'beloved sarcastic innuendos', Thanks for the post KIMMERLING!... I have always wondered how to conduct myself on this forum!
(evidently they skipped over Blogs in my etiquette class)
