There still appears to be mixed feelings about the recent merger.
Some don't like the enormity of this forum, some don't appreciate the lack of rules, some are unconvinced that any betterment has fallen on either doorstep, some are happy to have the new flood of opinion and ideas.
How do you honestly feel about the merger?
I find it a little curious that "others" have asked you to post this thread. They're not able to ask themselves? You have been designated as their spokesperson?
Personally, I could care less as to who joins us here at A2K. I try to assume that all are good folks and treat them with friendliness and politeness. If I don't like someone, I ignore them and their posts. I do not like conflict myself, so I avoid it.
I'm not personally interested in philosophy, but if a topic line intrigues me, I'll have a look. I may, or may not, post.
I hope you don't mind me making a personal point in regards to yourself, Mark. I know at least one or two others have also made it.
I find this sort of thing at the end of every post you make to be slightly irritating and overdone:
"Have a nice day.
In all fairness, there are others who do this, and I'm not a fan of that, too. This is directed to everybody
who ends their posts like that.
We all know who is writing the post, since the name is at the top of every post. We are not confused.
This habit of wishing all, on every post, "to have a nice day", or whatever, gets real old after a while. This would be okay if you were PMing someone, or writing an email, but doesn't fit in real well in this "post style" of writing.
Trust me, it is irritating to those folks reading it.
Again, don't take this personally. There are others that do the same sort of thing on this forum.
On a positive note, you do create some interesting topics, and I will continue to read them. If you continue to wish all a nice day, I'll do my best to ignore it. I'm kind of hoping that you may listen to some friendly advice though, and cease.
