Respect and disagreement

On another RV forum that I use I see a lot of disrespectful disagreement. I've yet to see that on this forum. Apparently a lot of people don't know that you can disagree without being disagreeable.

EGGSactly. Perhaps it has to do with the fact we aren't brand specific? We love them ALL. And, I have to admit... the moderators keep an eye on stuff and when they shut something down, most of us dont' know it's even happened. Problem people have a tendency to move along to somewhere else...

My view is that disagreements that might not be understood by all, that might actually inflame the larger group, can best be handled by a friendly and respectful PM.

We have a great group that is on the whole supportive of each other and accepting of the differences.

Oh yes, this is definitely one of the most congenial groups in the RV online world. I recently left another group because of the snarly comments. From what I have seen, it is the newer people who move on from those groups because of the sharp comments of 4 or 5 people who rule the waves. I have never signed off from here without a good feeling about the group. Reading others' sarcasm used to upset my whole day! Thank you FiberglassRV for the great participants and the great moderators.

This forum has become my "happy" place. It is nice in the world today to find a place of respite where at any moment, someone here is reaching out to try to help another. Sometimes so many running to the rescue at one time I move my chair away from the computer in case there is a major pile up!

Hi: All... A lot of times I "Agree to disagree" and at worst play "Devils advocate" specially when I see a typo!!! We can still have fun while looking at both sides of a "POOCHED EGG".

I love this forum!

I always get good ideas looking at all the threads. If I have a question regarding a product or MOD, I first invest my energies searching this forum.

When I do initiate a thread, requesting advice (which is usually very basic/newbee type stuff), my posts are always treated respectively and I pretty much get all my questions answered.

Many times when I post a reply to someone else's questions (i.e. camping with dogs in our new Scamp), I see that many of the other posts add to my knowledge base, and really learn a thing or two!

The knowledge coming out of the forum is awesome!

And the moderators ... are simply top notch!

Nothing will kill a forum faster than a cyber bully.
Every poster has their own point of view on any issue based on their own experience and personality. The posters make the forum what it is.

I have my own forum for metal detecting hobbyist and learned many years ago that it is a common interest that brings people together and forums grow with respect shown.
Give the reader a good experience and they will continue posting.

Most forums also deal off board through admin. & mods. with grumpy difficult problems, clashes.
