It seems as if there's a bunch of angst bursting into nasty posts on Chocky lately. I realise we are all typing into computers and it can all seem terribly depersonalised, but there are still people on the recieving ends of all this. Please consider what you write in relation to your normal standards of interpersonal communication. It is possible to disagree with someone and question something without being rude or mean. There is no need for personal abuse. When joking, please double check your post to be sure that it's clearly in jest and the jokes are not going to be hurtful to anyone. We are a relatively small (and usually friendly) community and it's nice to be nice to each other.

Well said. There's been a few exchanges in the last couple of days in particular that have left me thinking "WTF? Where did that come from?".

Would be nice if we could have emoticons to convey some of the intend meaning. Though making a sarcastic comment obvious would help. I am guilty of that one.

Sometimes it is withdrawal symptoms from whatever the addiction is?
Sometimes it is trolls.
Often it is the ambiguity of the medium.
Having a thick skin can help.
Consideration goes a long way, both in attitude and also in reviewing content before hitting the OK button.
Mistakes still happen ...

My high school english teacher always said "nice" was the most horrid of all cliches.

Having a big fricken aiding hammer hanging off your harness helps people to be nice to you too :-)

Now, what did Rod say in the past: "back to that cozy 'round the campfire feel"?

There I go. Misconstrued again.

I think you're right Wendy, but doubt we'll ever be able to fix it. Fact is that lots of people are d!ckheads, and there's nothing they can do about it. Upstanding, generous people like you and I can easily reflect on our outward impression, but others can not. A lot of these people catch public transport. They also drive Commodores. Sad as it is, it's human nature. I would however support any moves towards niceness.

My primary school teacher also said 'nice' was a horrible word. But, she also said that "Keith and me" was grammatically incorrect. She was wrong about that too.

I think at the very least a concerted effort to play the ball, not the player would be a good start. Attacking someone personally for asking a question is probably not necessary. A better ploy might be to comment why you think their idea is ludicrous.

Yes but there's a huge difference between someone telling me I'm being a moron and me realising it's true.

the bomber/neil thing was hilarious but one comment sticks out as having really crossed the line: feminazi...directed at wendy.

it is the most offensive thing i've witnessed here a real display of ignorance and stupidity.

I agree that the tone is a little uninviting here at times... but i thought it was just this forum.// lots... and lots... of testostorone often lead to noses out of joint.

but, there is always this problem with text based medium, especially when it comes to topics people are sensitive about, perhaps some sort of emoticon woulld help ? ":) or just dont sling sh*t for the sake of slinging sh*t.

> A lot of these people catch public
>transport. They also drive Commodores.

i do both.. does that make me a bad person? i wish i had a 4cyl honda civic... but i'm stuck with my petrol hog dunnydore... and it's cheaper to catch the tram to work than drive and pay for parking in the cbd.....

For the sake of clarity Cookie, I only mention this because of some personal experiences. The callusness of people on public transport in Sydney blows my mind; ditto the Bogans in Western Sydney. I was mostly saying that despite our best intentions, there are lots of people out there who don't care, and don't think about other people.

Not you though Cookie. You're awesome from what I've read.
