    lol, rani has a point, but doesnt at the same time... i mean, i can see how she can get defensive... but at the same time... we were trying to keep the thread going... and, in my opinion the remark that she made about us having more posters so we can post more is COMPLETELY BUNK!!! i mean, it isnt quantity, it is quality... lol, in other words it isnt just by sheer numbers that a thread strives on, it is the ammount of posting that is done im sure that if this thread had half as many people as the BCG it would still thrive... why? because we are a friendly people, and we like to post.

    Hi guys

    Just wanted to interject for a sec.

    Posting in other forums is 100% acceptable as far as I'm concern; As long as you don't get offensive to the residents of that forum.

    Posting a "hello" was acceptable, but calling out their "faults" was not (leave that to Mike and myself). You offended them, unintentionally.

    You also can't SPAM other forums. Threads titled "I have shoes" is not going to go over well by the residents of the forum and more so with Mike and I.
    Make sure you are posting with a specific reason and don't go off topic. Make sure it is one that the residents will deem acceptable.

    Just to give you the flip side of the coin...did they over react...YES.

    Retaliating will never win you any friends. It was done with a tongue in check manor but it got everyone back up even further. I think the situation could have been handled with a lot more pleasantly.

    (My trip out west should be interesting.)

    My pet peeve: Getting kicked out of two different locations while fundraising for cystic fibrosis research. They told us they'd checked with them!

    My pet peeves... well. I have a few. Visiting another Canadian forum to find my CR getting bashed, and one of my RSA's doing it... I'd count that in among them.

    I hope you ACGers never wander around and find your RSA trashing someone you know behind her back, especially when there is supposed to be a measure of trust between CRs and RSAs.

    Obviously some of you are still harbouring hard feelings over this, and that's unfortunate, but when the guy in a position of authority encourages strife between the chapters under his authority, well, that's a whole nother barrel of pickles, isn't it?

    I think that I already thrashed them in the BCG thread then I said that AC does not have a constructive forum Derisa. I was very angry when I made those comments and for that I am sorry Tara and Tammy. I am sorry
    Rani, Alex, and Derisa that I did not act soon enough and lock that BCG thread. With that being said I still want to see some more constructive threads here on this forum and not for who just posted their 5000th message. Save that for a social thread and keep it in there. I do not see the need in opening a new thread. Please try and understand what it is that I am saying to you all. I hate to see all this friction going on around the country but I cannot brainwash people into respecting each other. That is up to each and everyone of us to try
    and make this a happy place. We need to remember what it was that brought us all together in the first place.

    For the record, we've long since given up on the x number of posts thread. Those died out shortly after their heyday everywhere.

    Do we give the impression of still harboring hard feelings? I certainly hope not, since that isn't the case at all. :)

    My current pet peeve is illogically ordered physics problems! :mad:
