    Perhaps it's time for us to regroup..?

    I don't know about anyone else on the boards here, but I for one have noticed quite a bit of profanity and (for lack of a better word) mean-ness on here lately between members.
    I know that I've been a bit on edge.. the days are getting shorter (it's pitch black here by 6pm now!), and due to my own injured status, I'm not getting out and about nearly as much as I should be or want to be.
    I'm sure others have similar stories of stress!!
    This is just a friendly post asking us to find our true HorseForum unity and perhaps just take an extra moment or two to think before we post. I know that I for one see red and post without thinking sometimes, and regret it not too long after because I realize '... hey... it's the internet.. why am I getting so worked up?' but usually it's too far past the time to edit.
    So, I would like to take this time to kind of re-invent my posting self, and resolve to try and be a bit nicer in the way I say things.
    Anyone care to join me?

    I for one would like to be the first to join you and agree that on some threads I think we all have gotten a bit out of hand and I will be willing to join you

    Silly question - is profanity even allowed? I figured it was not.

    Yay Savvy! Welcome to the "resolution club!"

    AB, no it is not allowed, but I have seen a lot of profanity on this board of late - time to nip bad habits in the bud!!

    I wanna join this club too, sometimes I get scared to post some threads as I don't know how people will react to my silly questions

    I'm the opposite, it's coming into summer here - I'm in the best moods! You poor US members!

    Hell no!! I love a good argument. And if it says it in the bible it's not profanity!!

    Even I think I've managed to keep my posts pretty correct (no self-boasting here) I can join this. Of course it's ok to disagree since sometimes disagreement can bear constructive discussions but you can disagree it polite way.

    TaMMa you are always polite!!

    I'm definitely not saying we shouldn't debate - I love myself a good'er here and there, but rather up the level of respect for each other once again. We don't need to go around calling names and getting TOO worked up.
