We certainly started off pretty well but recently have been made to feel not so welcomed.
Many of us are long time posters who do not believe in name calling, trashing of others and are not trolling as some of you suggest.
Perhaps you may find it a bit overwhelming to have us all come over so quickly and have so many of us know all the quick commands of "Forum" posting but I can assure you were are not here to "Hijack" your Forum..
A few rules we tried to follow on our own Forum before Canada.com ran into financial problems while upgrading the site..
1) Most, but not all of us, don't believe in name calling. However that said we can take a jab of sarcasm and can dish it out..
2) If we are disrespected we generally break off a debate / conversation.. We feel most of us are adult enough to leave well enough alone and our live have enough stress in them not to come here and add more..
3) We try to remain on topic but like all of you ( and yes all of you have been guilty ) get off topic from time to time.. No need to get snippy about it..
4) Please keep in mind that many of us do not get to post as often and as much as others. This is a fact of Forum and real life..
Considering the topics we discuss, we are bound to get into heated conversation. Religion, Politics and so on always created controversy amongst the best of friends. This does not mean you have to be ignorant about the topic and many of us have opinions we are entitled to..
Although our Forum will probably be back up soon, many of us would like to stay here, and hope to become a part of your group.
