Yes in principal, but a bit too far!!

While I have no doubt the poster is/was genuinely concerned about a degree of politeness on the DPR forums, I would have to acknowledge that these forums are not alone in regards to 'rudeness' and unnecessary abruptness.

From my experience of this Forum, generally I have not seen much evidence of this in the 'lower' Forums. By lower, I mean D40, D200, D300, D7000 etc.

Not owning the top end Nikon stuff, I don't get to see posts in the D3, or professional area!

But if someone with a lessor Nikon (lessor, what's that?) strays into professional territory I would expect, or should I say demand, the utmost courtesy and tolerance from the pro's.

I don't think we need to employ 'big brother' tactics here, but rather always try to show tolerance. (even when the evil Ken Rockwell is mentioned!!)

Ken is just a chap who is trying to earn a dollar in the only way he knows, sometimes egocentric, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes silly!

I will be interested to see whether we can all 'climb the mountain'!!

Ron, still nursing a broken ankle!!

They should assign long-time regulars to police the forums. Just put out some notice that this is going to happen, then do it. Allow anyone who has been here for 2 years to apply to become a forum cop.
