At one time we had a few resident trolls, but most people would continue to post ideas and have productive discussions. I still see some of that, but I also see a lot of "your this, but what am I " insult posts.

Here is a challenge for all of us, stating at midnight tonight, no one posts a single name calling, insulting, condescending post until midnight tomorrow. 24 hours of consideration and respect, possible?
I hope so.

best of luck to us....................
This is better than most political sites you can find, but that's a very low bar.

Onbaord with challenge. Ignore my last previous post....

I'm in. I can do 24 hours standing on my head.

Don't expect too much to change long term.

Even on the strictest moderated boards 24 hours is about the limit any crackdown on this sort of thing will last before the system starts to be gamed and the insults start flying surreptitiously through the use of snarky innuendos.

In order to be fair to those on the Left Coast, it should start at 3:00 AM Eastern time.

Hmmm...I'd better check the rules again.

Done. No name-calling, insulting, or being condescending.

First two no sweat, but the third may be tricky....

I guess I should say that it counts even if the other guy doesn't get it.

For a very long time my wife thought I was really smart. She finally figured out she was the one making sense out of nothing.

She still loves me though. I am incredibly lucky to have her.
