The cleverer give in.

Everyone knows this saying, but why doesn't apply it for the internet?

In the past few days we had a lot of aggressive posts here on BA. I am wondering why.
Why can't people just behave mature and respect each other? I am not saying you have
to like every member, but you can respect everyone.

If you are annoyed at someone, ignore him -- there is a reason phpBB has a "add fiend/
add foe"-feature. Why do you have to bitch about someone you don't like instead of
proving maturity and ignoring the individual? This creates a bad mood for everyone here
on the forums. And it makes a "mods life" harder. I am really pissed off when reading
posts like "I bet there wont be much left after the mods cleaned up this topic". Is this
some kind of a game for you, a game how much rubbish you can post until you get warned
or banned or a thread gets deleted?

C'mon guys, this is a discussion board, not a flame board. We are here to discuss betas
and computer-related stuff, not to fight against each other...

Anonymity.
People are hiding behind a keyboard, not seeing the other person face2face, they feel powerful and in control.

Plus if staff want this to change, they should also play a part, I can easily get warned for bitching and moaning yet others seem to get away with utter crap in 600 posts

I think the why is not always worth figuring out. We may find out 'why', but the real reason behind all this may never be known.

The cleverer give in.
Those who are clever and have a hint of foresight don't get involved in the first place.

If you don't like someone because they post crap, don't let them drag you down to their level by getting involved in a flamewar.
