Journal: Random Thoughts on Posting

Journal by pertelote
Was just browsing and found a couple of replies to a post. One of the more challenging aspects of this forum is the level of communication ability of the users. One of the replies the man clearly read much more into what I wrote than what I said. His reply was way off the facts, but he thinks he has enlightened me as to the errors of my thought processes. So be it. I know better. Now I need to try to write my comments with greater clarity and singleness of focus. Of course, some will still misread them, but that will not be my fault.

Today I was just browsing through /. after finding the link to it on regarding his fabulous Bernie adventure. I know that there have been changes here at /., and I think they are for the better. It just seems to me the quality of the posts is better, the tone of the users is more open and reasonable. More like a real community than a couple of years ago when things felt more "bristly" for lack of a better word. I am finding that I am enjoying my time here more than ever, and may even considering posting again now that my fear of being flamed for daring to post is ebbing away. Good job Cmdr & Crew!
