What started off over a year ago as a very interesting and welcome diversion has now been dragged down by a few vociferous posters (and you know exactly who you are) who have determined that they are going to shout each other down regardless of everyone else. My eyes now glaze over when I see some taglines and I either ignore them or close the posting.
What I have to ask is if people had (as I choose to do) to use their real names, would they seriously make some of the comments about others that they do? I rather doubt it. It also makes me wonder – if this is how they behave on a web forum – just how on earth do they behave towards their colleagues and, particularly, their subordinates.
