Why Knock each Other?.

Hi
I have been on this site and our old site that was prior to this one a long time.
I have seen many changes ie people trying to score points off each other like the latest thread to be locked which I personally agree should be locked.
Why Why? must some of the members on here keep having to have a dig at one another there's no need for that kind of behaviour we came on this site to get advice we came to possibly give advice if we could we certainly didn't come on here to start a personal campaign against each other.
People come on here and contribute others come on here to stir up trouble.
I no longer wish to contribute to this so this will be my last posting.
I always enjoyed posting on here but when I see thing's posted on here that I dont like I no longer wish to be part of it.
There are many on here i think of as friends and will continue to email but some of the posting's recently are doing my head in so that is something i don't have to put up with.
So bye to my friends they know who they are and i wont lose contact with you.
Kind Regards John.

Why not use the alt.carers newsgroup? While it is not moderated, with any decent newsreader (free or cheap software) you can simply killfile those people who upset or annoy you.

Hi John.

I'm relatively new to these forums but I am a member with many different forums and every forum has a troll. Not saying any member here is a troll you understand. But if you are aware of them, their postings need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Here's some more information about the internet troll which will explain a few things. You should stay with us and help beat the trolls!

We're all different. All we

We're all different. All we have in common is caring - and that experience is different for all of us. Our life experiences and views - political, religious and others - are equally diverse. It's statistically impossible for us all to agree about everything all the time.

We're also - many of us - very stressed. The written medium is notoriously difficult to get right because sarcasm, irony and other ways of making a point are not easily translated to the written word. And so sometimes we say things we don't intend. Or they are interpreted in ways we never intended. And, sometimes, we react to things in ways we don't need to because we've taken a meaning that wasn't originally there.

And, on top of this mix, which makes life hard enough, there are occasionally those who stir things up through dislike (often misguided) of other individuals or organisations.

I know of nowhere where this can be avoided, short of cutting off all contact - which nobody should feel forced to do.

Every time something like this happens, there is discussion about how terrible it is that these things happen, yet we continue to attack others for having different views. Something to think about?

Any forum is a microcosm of society, the world, it's easy to forget when you've become cut off from the world just how unpleasant it and people can be at times. As Charles says we're all different, we come from different backgrounds and walks of life and we will have different points of view. And we all have different personalities, some will be peace-lovers, some enjoy confrontation, some are kind and caring and sadly there will also be some who were bullies before they became carers and some who enjoy manipulating others and they will do the same wherever we encounter them. Sometimes all that ties us together is the fact that we're carers. In the world outside cyberspace it's sometimes difficult to avoid those who seek to harm, on a board like this it's infinitely easier, if we see a topic that is becoming unpleasant we can either voice our objection or avoid clicking on it, if a topic is closed we can also avoid it and it's worth remembering that this site is more closely monitored than the communities we live in so we're better protected than we are elsewhere. As someone who voices my objection to conflict or bullying on boards, I hope I didn't contribute to people's distress.

I agree annie, cyberworld is just the same as the "real" world. You meet all kinds of people in both. Our common ground is our caring roles and the experiences and problems, and success and pleasures that brings into our lives. For the most part, most threads and posts are fine, occassionally the discussion gets a bit of hand, such is life! I hope no-one leaves because you all have something to contribute in the way of advice, help, humour, comfort and friendship. In answer to your question Annie, no I don't think you did.
