How to be a spoiler - the ME is ANGRY!With so much enthusiasm we announced ISC's birthday and the awards for inspirational members. I came online today to announce a contest and what do I see? Not just congratulatory & best wishes on the occasion of the foundation day, but questions being raised that not just dampened my mood but made me really angry. Why is it necessary to rake up a controversy in perfectly happy threads?
First, the birthday announcement thread- the words are not read properly & the question of the date it is posted is brought up. Why?
Second, the inspirational member award thread - instead of one award as announced earlier, two are announced. Questions are raised why the difference in the cash prizes and demands made to know the poll details. Why? (a) Does the lesser cash prize take away the value of the award? (b) Wasn't it made very, very clear in the earlier announcement that poll details would not be revealed?
Third, the thread inviting ideas to celebrate ISC's birthday - here again, the same issues are raised. Why?
We do not expect members to play party poopers and to de-value the worth of a thread. Please - just stay out of such threads if you cannot convey good responses in such threads. If at all you do have this mindless urge to create a needless controversy, you very well know of the existence of a a problems/complaints category in the forum. Why not post a separate thread then instead of hijacking others' threads, that too happy ones?
It is hoped that henceforth members behave in a mature manner and maintain the sanctity & value of a thread.
