Politeness (to one another) is a virtue
Current posting ability limitations seems to prove sundialsvc4's point for him. An individual (or maybe a couple if we throw the spammers in) behaving in a rude, uncouth, and immature manner to the point that it was becoming so disruptive to the site that drastic action was taken. The responses defending the immature behavior in this thread have been disappointing and just encourage the poor behavior. And if someone does not know how to say something in a more mature, professional manner, then we should be encouraging them to learn how to. This place would die off if it was up to some of you who want to keep looking the other way. Of course, too many people have already been looking the other way for the past several months, so it's no surprise we got to this point.
