I see from today's newspapers that a Repug senator is flying against the truth of global warming and the impact that the human race has had on climate, for about the last 150 years.
A2K is a storehouse of mean-spirited people
Anyone of us can do it occasionally..

You have done your fair share of this, Frank, you are in no position to lecture other posters..
I am not aware of these posts from Oralloy, but I don't think they change the principle. If someone behaves in a way you consider inappropriate, you can challenge the behavior without personal attacks.
can be very pleasant in the first role, and a vicious bitch in the second.
Unless a member of the public is asking, "How can I be as petty, demeaning, and as bereft of personal control as possible?"...I suggest they be skeptical of any advice obtained here. If that is the question, however, they have come to the right place.
A discussion about a call for intelligent, respectful discussion...
...dominated by individuals who seem unable to post thoughts anywhere without calling someone ignorant or stupid. People, who when they disagree with someone, have to disparage the individuals with whom they are in disagreement...rather than simply acknowledging there is a disagreement and agreeing to disagree.

Another question for which A2K is the right place to come ask is: "am I a troll?"
The answer of course is always yes....
This thread is not going very well.
LOL. You've pulled a Genghis Khan on me last time I addressed you with your italian nickname. Which may be mildly mocking but nowhere near "malicious cruelty"...
You got temper issues and no sense of common decency.
Those posters who go on shouting matches here are just proving you are right, Max. You are right in your diagnosis. What is weak is your prescription, the "what next". There is very little individual posters can do to change the climate on a board. Even on a thread devoted to civility, you will have a lack of civility...
You must have misunderstood me.
I mean that every time a new poster comes in with an out-of-ordinary persona, situation or question, the knee-jerk reaction is always to call him a liar, a poseur, a troll. Like the poster "whitebars" or recently "bobkissinger". It even happened to me, remember? Some A2Kers find it hard to understand that there is a vast world out there with many many odd things happening in it... They lack imagination.
