What can you do when 2 posters with a history Can't Post

go at it hammer and tongs on the message board? It would be nice if old baggage were not brought to new discussions, but I suspect that is what happened recently and it resulted in an entire thread being deleted. I'm not arguing with that admin decision, but I think the snarkiness could have been averted had the person firing the opening salvo been admonished and that single post removed.

Apparently Newton left people out of his reckoning because here it seems that each action has an escalating and opposite reaction. It's really very frustrating for those of us who enjoy the more unusual discussions.

The posted question did not offend me, but one of the responses to it was decidedly out of line and I was distressed by it. I was even more distressed when that response was not addressed by the admins.

Could you not have removed the middle and left the beginning and the end where the poster's question was addressed factually rather than emotionally? Too flame-provoking?


Sorry. I respect our admins - you do a terrific and terrifically difficult job - but I feel a sense of loss here.
