Was just browsing through this thread again. I love this forum. It seems to me that fiberglass trailer owners are the nicest people on the web.

Thumbs up Valuable Information Sharing

Elegance of Behavior is an elegant and civilized term. As a newbie and single senior woman, I have been grateful for the knowledge I have gained here and for the contacts I have made around the country.
When I posted a question about towing a 16' Scamp with my 2012 Forester, I was astounded by the range of opinions on the matter. At first I was confused, but I was motivated to do further research and ask more questions from diverse sources. As a result, I was able to decide what I was comfortable choosing.
Lots of opinions and most of them stated exactly as such helped me to figure out what I wanted to do.
Kudos to the moderators.

Elegance of Behavior...what a great idea. It works, too, for which I'm very grateful.

I signed on here awhile back, stumbling and lost like most newbies, trying to decide what trailer to buy. The questions I asked had probably been asked a hundred times before but I was always treated with courtesy. People went out of their way to be helpful.

I'm a moderator on a logging forum and I wish that most of our members there were as polite and helpful as this crew has been.

By the way, I decided on, and got, a 2012 Casita LD17. I just got home from Rice with it last week. Now it's time to work a little harder at being semi-retired.

Thanks again to everybody who helped me make up my mind.

This thread was well written and is very much in line with the way I run my forum.
I don't know if its a lack of experience with forums but folks should remember that there are many views / opinions and all are welcome.

Quoting someone else's view then expressing your own which is different does not cheapen the value of the other opinion it simply says your not willing to look at the big picture and respect the view of others.

Forums work on respect and contributions from all. IMHO

Even I wonder if I should post an opinion any further on the site.
Maybe some don't know what flaming is.

It may say that there is more than 1 point of view, resulting discussions can bring more information to light.

As to flaming, I've noticed the tendancy here is to simply ignore those individuals or topics that might be flamed elsewhere. It sends the same message.

Sir.

Over the last 10 or so Years I've been on probably 12 forums (4x4, firearms, SCUBA) and such. most of them I've dropped off of due to what you stated. I was tired of "internet commandos" that "know all"and having them try and tell me I that did not know what i was talking about or was full of it and worse. In a few of the forums, I known some of the Mods and they have even asked me to return. As of now I've only been active on this site and one other one, and as it stands now probably will stay that way. I don't have time time for such people and that conduct. I try to read and think about the topic then if I have some thing worth adding I may. I don't always try to post on every thread I read. A old saying "you have 2 ears and 1 mouth listen more and talk less. One of the things I've seen is it very easy for someone to "attack someone over a computer connection or a phone line than in person"

Well Hello,
I am new to this Forum so please have patience for a new "poster"child.

One thing that posting allows that a live conversation does not; it is the opportunity to read before you post. So, it might be helpful to follow the 2 minute rule. Wait two minutes and reread until you hit the "POST" button.
Happy Thanksgiving all.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Robert... and to FiberglassRV! Thanks for the reminder to wait a bit before hittin' the reply button. It also gives folks an opportunity to proofread for spelling errors.

I agree with the last couple of posts. Something else to consider when posting: the printed word does not allow the reader to read a person's face or body language in this form of communication. I find this especially true with computers, even with the little icons that are often used, although they do help.

that being said, I do find this forum to be full of helpful people who mostly respect other view points.

Thanks to all of you who have posted on this thread! Good reminders about why this forum is such a great resource. I have learned a great deal just from this thread and have much to think about.

I tend to react impulsively at times and will temper my thoughts and posts a bit more in light of what many of you have mentioned. Great suggestions and this is a thread that needs to be brought to the forefront from time to time as a reminder for all of us.

Thanks!
Linda

Sometime it seems that this thread should be a yearly 'required read' for all of us. Thanks for posting, Linda. I read through this one again myself.

I've been a member of FiberglassRV for a loooong time. I appreciate the members who offer opinions that have value without demanding folks believe the same way. It's all about choices. The first is "Be Nice."

I guess I'm trying to follow your advice being I've just been rereading this thread and it's been about a year ago.
I'd like to copy most of this to post to a few other forums.
