Veiled aggression and outright aggression towards other members is why I pretty much avoid the spey pages. I have in fact used what has occurred there as an example and warning for things in the rare event it starts here. I have not seen where this is very much of a problem here. I'd like to see it stay that way. On the other hand, there have been a couple of instances where someone makes a statement or two that is bad information. People in many cases come to the forum in order to learn. It does not help them to be fed a line of bologna. People who use the forum in a respectful and honest way are never going to feel unwelcome here. I'm a little curious as to what got those members panties in a bunch.
And on the lighter side; ........ The Nun opens the freezer door and the Parrot is standing on a frozen Turkey. He says " before I say another word I want to know what he said!"
I'll bet you didn't think it was a real joke.
