Despite representation and links to the offending - I am still penalised even though I am the victim.

I also seem to have had my Blog altered !!

Seems "Cause and Effect" has no value here.

RCG is not unique in the problem - it happens in all forums ....

People post and tend to forget who reads. We all do it. We read a post and reply ... our attention is on that post we reply to. Trouble is - that and our reply are read by others who's minds are not similarly 'focused'.

The result can be less than desirable - especially for a newcomer to the hobby.

Bias is all part of our individual make-up, we like to think we can step outside our bias and preferences, but in fact its not that easy. Especially if a discussion takes a path that gets somewhat heated. The 'gloves come off' and bias rears up to serious levels ...

It becomes sad when a poster then resorts to insults or name calling. It usually means the person who resorts to insult has lost the argument and has nowhere left to go. It would have been much better if they had left the discussion alone with their previous.

Sometimes the poster with nowhere to go - resorts to 'baiting' - trying to provoke a response. The best reply to that is NO Reply ! That infuriates the antagonist much more than any reply.

Above is a part of every forum - some have moderators that deaol with it quietly and effectively, others don't. But its there and well to remember that we cannot control who reads our posts and the consequences.
