I was reminded that if a Moderator wants to post “edited” it is OK and up to them.

you can't put a price on experience or information and if people get flamed or slapped in a post then the less likely the sharing continues... at last check i don't think a real know it all has yet been found...
I find this sites sharing of broad knowledge and the quality of people at the top, hense its the first site in my favorites.
Keep up the good work.!

as a somewhat newish and fairly infrequent poster, i am not 100% sure "my" opinion is that important...

That said, here goes...

Life is also exemplified by the old 80 / 20 rule. 80% are nice 20% less so. And 80% of the problems come from the 20%.
The percentage certainly varies by topic and situation, but the overall issue has some validity. "a few" folks cause an inordinate amount of ruckus. Always have, always will. My own faith teaches that every member of the body is just as important as every other member.. an eye is no good without a heart withoug lungs without... you get it. And I have found that **by extension** even the rectums of the world have value and purpose. (think of the body analogy... without that, life would become VERY uncomfortable in a few days...) That said, the flip side is that there can also be cancer in the body that needs to be removed. So life becomes a balance.

What was one of the pieces of wisdom our moms taught us? "Just ignore them". If you find a poster with whom you normally disagree, do not click on his/her posts! if you run across one that really sets you off, take a deep breath (or go have a margarita or whatever YOU need to calm down), then move on. Don't even respond. It is just a forum. NOTHING said here will change the world ONE IOTA. it is just your opinion, and theirs, and his and hers and mine. Nothing more, Nothing less.

I have found this forum to be WONDERFUL. The range if info is so enormous. WOW - and kudos for ALL who contribute. and a SPECIAL thanks to teh moderators who spend the time to keep things on track.

Blessings to all... even the rectums! Lol/

Length of time you have been a member has no bearing on the importance of your opinion.. of course, it is important. Well stated and respectful opinions are always welcomed, no matter how long you have been here.

and your post was very well done. Thank you!

I love this site, even though I sold my Boler some time ago I still look in here often.
My current camper is a 74 Apache Solid State pop-up which is ABS plastic, no fibreglass so hope I don't get flamed now
Among the vintage RV sites that I belong to I rate this one high up, keep up the good work

This was a wonderful 'sticky' to read. It seems that more and more, people insist that their particular lifestyle or way of doing things is the best. I notice this to a high degree in people of my generation (born in the 70s and early 80s). I remember one time I cooked pizza and my guests told me that they have a pizza stone and that I should have used one too. Well, maybe I don't want to use a pizza stone...

I could go on with similar examples, but let's keep this positive.

But my point is, reading your original post made me realize that this is truly a great community to be a part of. Glad I found you, even though I haven't found a camper!

I am a new member to the site and love every minute of it. I never liked forums do to the constant garbage or bickering on them. The forums here are wonderful. I love reading about people and there adventures. Everyone that I have read so far are great. We even get concerned about people that are sick or need help. Sometimes I think Canadians are the only people with respect but I see that south of the border this also holds true. So come on everyone, shake hands and reach out across the land with respect and common decency.

Cool Politics and Religion

So, when a post has the word "STICKY" in front of it, it is a permanent sort of guide to use in the website.

I posted some time ago and was brought up by Donna D when she was still a moderator. She did such a sweet job of pointing our how what I said could be taken wrongly. I still remember that and bless her for it.

I understand that one of the social rules to avoid fights is to stay away from the subjects of politics and religion.

What a great post. You can run your generator anytime your next to us Mike, but first we have to wait for our Lil Snoozy to be built. Can't wait, but must.

Good points, Mike! I thinks it's all part of the general downturn in society's moral values. But like others here have said, most members here are more mature & show better behaviour. This is a Great site, with great moderators.
