A little kindness and respect goes a long way
I absolutley commend WebRing in allowing members to express their opinions in this, and the General forum. Many of the posts have been opinions mixed with attacks on WebRing and/or other members. I sincerely hope that those that are angry about the changes at WebRing will not take it out on others in unproductive ways. While I think "sarcasm" used to make a point is not bad, disrespectful attacks on WebRing or other member's posts or points of view are completely uncalled for. Anyone who's been around here for a while knows that you can not "bully" WebRing or other members into changing their points of view. As everyone who reads my posts knows, I don't pull any punches. I do try very hard to maintain a reasonable level of respect...well, some of my late night posts get a little edgy...but I'm human. This really isn't (and should not become) a venue to "flame" others.
Despite my intent to leave WebRing when my rings are taken away, I do plan on seeing this through to the end. Whatever the final path the WebRing system chooses, I think we all need to give them an opportunity to hear our points of view...and make their own decisions.
