It is exasperating!We have such a lovely forum. Unlike other forums which I have come across, over here the Webmasters have comparatively given us a lot of leeway to express our opinions freely. So some interesting topics come up for discussion which we would not get to discuss at other fora. Yet, what happens? The main topic goes off-track completely and it gets reduced to two people bickering. It is exasperating!
I humbly request you: Do try to stay on track, talk only about the topic and not comment on the member who made a personal remark. You can surely either send a polite message to the member and sort it out privately or send a message to a forum editor, objecting to it. I know what you will say - what if the editor takes the thread off-track? If you have a genuine major grievance, then you could use the 'contact us' link which is provided at the bottom of the page to get in touch with the Webmasters & let them know the issue.
Let's at least try to make this change, to keep forum discussions on track.
