    Exclamation Too many threads getting derailed over personal issues

    Of late there have been far too many threads going off topic into personal issue between members. I have refrained from getting involved in these, but they keep multiplying. I will wait until later today to see if they get back on topic, away from personal issues, starting at 7:30 CST. If not, I will be closing threads and start deleting posts. Let's not continue to go over the same ground. Be the one to let the personal stuff slide and refuse to respond to it. Way too much "you" being used as well.
    Regards, Barry

    The ignore list is a nice feature, and leads to much less acrimony.

    The best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them.

    I thought they were there on purpose for entertainment value.

    That will be good Barry as there is a lot of rediculous stuff going on and it is a turn-off for forum members.
