The limits are out there on this forum and much further than I prefer but it is not my call.

Same was true at MH. There the limits were very more restricted at first but it seems to me that people have learned the rules and have gotten comfortable with it. I think it has loosened up a bit over there also.

I never thought I would say it but I do see the need for some control cause things can get way out of hand.

My biggest gripe is the treatment of others-- most of it is comraderie and is fine but often it is to someone unsuspecting and new to the site.

We need to remember that we all don't learn the same way nor do we learn at the same rate. We teach tolerance in our schools and yet here the lack of tolerance towards others is astonishing.

I am not ashamed to say I am one of those "girly guys" that doesn't have trouble crying or showing his sensitive side. I generally like people and wish the world could give each other a great big hug. I also want to be treated accordingly.

Oh, and B4T doesn't go off to the corner sucking his thumb. He's there all the time.
So now this would qualify you as a ....

To add my $.02, over on contractor talk, GMOD asks a suspect poster to fill out their profile and go make an introduction. I like this approach to help find out if someone is DIY or not without thrashing someone that might just be really green and trying to learn. A fairly complete profiile should help weed a few out.

I have always respected you from your post regarding electrical knowledge BUT the more I read your post outside the trade the more respect I have for you personally.

Being a REAL man has a lot more to do with sensitivity and respect than the NFL and UFC.
