I wanted to post a gentle reminder to all who post on the DB Forums that we need to remember that we have all walks of life that post here as well as lurkers. The DB Forums have some of the most wonderful people posting, but we do tend to sometimes get caught up in the moment and forget what we accepted in the "terms and conditions" for posting here.
One of the "terms and conditions" that is in the Policies thread that Cadet has posted is stated as: "Participants shall treat each other with respect, refraining from rudeness and foul language."
We may not always agree with each other on interpretation/tone, advice, suggestions, etc., so please...try to agree to disagree. Take from the postings what you can use and leave the rest in "print".
Let's try to be as respectful as possible to all posters. Each and every poster that comes here is hurting and yes, some are angry and disappointed in their spouses and/or partners. Let's try to be patient, listen to what they have to say and remember...we all have different opinions on how a situation should be handled. Let's not forget that we were in their shoes a while back and weren't ready to hear what the posters had to offer in the way of advice and/or pearls of wisdom.
Please try to keep the language as clean as possible. I realize that we all tend to forget that we aren't sitting around with a group of friends just shooting the breeze and anything that we say is okay, however, we do need to be mindful of those who do come here to read our postings and sometimes the language can be offensive to others.
We all have been there and done that...so let's help each other keep the respect alive and the language as clean as possible. The moderators have been cleaning up some of the language, but we don't have the time to read each and every posting to censure it for the language. So, I'm asking for your help to be mindful of what you are posting.
