    I know that myself of lately has noticed so much more "bickering" going on in posts by forum members who have been here for long enough to know better.
    IMO It worries me a bit :confused:.. thus the title Forum/Friend frustrations.

    First off- IMHO this is no way to make an impression on anyone who might want to join CM.
    Secondly, We are all entitled to add our input, comments, knowledge and experience to any and all threads we choose to participate in. And we should be able to do this without worrying about a verbal attack because our opinion is different than someone else's!! *(no we won't always agree on things, that is one of the things that keeps this forum ticking!! but can we get back to the more tactful ways of letting another know that we do not agree??) For a few weeks now I have noticed this escalating, with no one particular member singled out, but quite a few .. here and there.

    I really think it's sad to see some of our most valued members banned for losing their temper and others having to take shot after shot without having done anything to provoke it except have a different experience or opinion than another member.:rolleyes:

    So... What's your input? Do you think this lousy rainy weather is beginning to take it's toll? :confused: (I know it's been raining on and off here for weeks)
    Is it A lot of Losses back to back to back that are making members so grumpy?? :confused:
    What can we do to get back to the helpful hints, information and fun that we had?:thumbsup:

    I say this all the time too.
    "It's something in the water we drink"
    Why I say this is because we did a test on some patients and gave regular tap water to 10 of them and gave 10 others bottle water and the one's that drank the Tap water had Behavioral problems where the one's that had the bottle water were cool and collective and not high strong.
    Or it just might be people warming a secondary of the global warming trend and we are all melting away :lolup:

    Tom I totally disagree. Bottled water is the biggest con in history. I'm surprised and disgusted that you would enhance the reputation of such a rip off, lol

    LOL Gary this is what we found as a study we did.:p
    But I have to say that the water you pay for comes from a tap anyways :lolup: and they make money on it.

    LOL .. here we go again. :lolup: :lolup: I'm not sure which way to lean with that debate guys.. I've heard both, that the bottled water is from tap and that tap water is safe.

    I think that really depends on where you live and whether they treat the tap water or not, right?! Here in the USA most states (towns, cities, what ever) do add flouride, etc to tap water. I do know that as a Veterinary Technician rumors were flying that there were carcinogens in tap water which is allegedly why cancer in pets is on the rise here.
    They also literally found "drug residue" in some states and towns tap water because of people flushing their old medications down the toilet:eek:! This is why I only drink bottled water.. but then again I like the "lemon flavored" bottled water.:D.. .
    The world may never know...:rolleyes:

    Gary, thanks for sharing. BTW, not all tap water in all places is drinkable! Our water comes from wells dug deep in the desert and contains arsenic :eek: and it tastes like shite......


    Thank you for this unbiased opinion.............even treated or filtered water does not remove all the bad stuff.

    Yeah, the water in england is horrible. Here in scotland, its fine. I couldnt bear to pay for it unless it was sparkly with a slice of lemon. Even then I would rather buy a can of lager, its nicer and cheaper:)

    I don't know where ya'll are from but I can assure you that rainy weather is not what is making the people from Texas (me) or most of the south grumpy 'cause we haven't had any. 104 degree heat kinda PO's me though.

    The water where I live is so bad that even the pot plants die. :D

    Speaking of Ape-Shit

    When I lived in Honolulu years (and years) ago, we had a bit of fun with sailors (no, not that way!!) We'd be at the zoo and see sailors in their pristine white uniforms. Sometimes there would be a large brown splat on the front of the uniform and we'd ask if they'd been at the gorilla pen............

    "Yes" was the usual reply....................

    Seems gorillas don't like pristine white uniforms.

    So a trip to the gorilla cave showed that the beasts would lay low and crap in their hand...................then wait for a sailor to show up. When one did, the gorilla would pitch the crap at the sailor then run like hell. This didn't happen to the hippies or stoners who were laughing their azz off.............:cool:

    I love a good debate on issues, but some issues get people so worked up they say and do things they wouldn't normally do. I hope we havent seen the last of a few long time posters. IMO they will be missed. I respect anyone who speaks their mind no matter how it will be viewed by others, I wish I could be more like that..

    I doubt that any poster - long time or otherwise - will be barred here as long as they post in a disciplined, courteous and reasonable manner. I exclude the likes of spammers and crooks, because that's not what this is all about.

    The nature of instant communications means that a post can be thumped out in anger or maybe whilst one's normal judgement and nature is clouded by stress or perhaps even after drinking a little too much lemonade LOL.

    That's fine....as long as the final act is not to thump the "submit" button without first reviewing what one has just written and the effect it may have on other members and future online relationships.

    Regrettably, immediately banging down hard on the submit button is usually the immediate act, and that inevitably causes reactions ranging from retribution to distress.

    Best advice I ever received regarding forum postings was to draft the response and then sleep on it. If that sort of self control is not possible, then at least go back and read the post again, taking the time to consider the implications before making one's feelings and character as well as opinion very, very public.
