New poster with almost the exact
same rant another new poster had about a month or so ago? Yeah, I'm not suspicious at all
If you or anyone else has suspicions about a member in the future, please share them privately with the Horse Forum Team so we can look into it. When such a suspicion is wrong, and members' suspicions often are, and accused in a thread, it's unnecessarily corrosive to a thread and often derails a thread altogether.
I think the OP should probably read this and then get back to me with any questions Supply and demand - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
, supply and demand
is an economic model
of price determination
in a market
. It concludes that in a competitive market
, the unit price
for a particular good will vary until it settles at a point where the quantity demanded by consumers (at current price) will equal the quantity supplied by producers (at current price), resulting in an economic equilibrium
for price and quantity
The four basic laws of supply and demand are:
- If demand increases and supply remains unchanged, a shortage occurs, leading to a higher equilibrium price.
- If demand decreases and supply remains unchanged, a surplus occurs, leading to a lower equilibrium price.
- If demand remains unchanged and supply increases, a surplus occurs, leading to a lower equilibrium price.
- If demand remains unchanged and supply decreases, a shortage occurs, leading to a higher equilibrium price.
If you're going to reply to an OP, who is a human being after all, please reply to
the OP, and not flippantly or sarcastically. "
So, you are completely unfamiliar with the concept of supply and demand economics, OP? Are they no longer covering that in basic high school education?
Are you completely unfamiliar with our expectations of members here at the Horse Forum, themacpack? Ensuring that this remains a friendly or even decent place to discuss horses requires that members not reply to each other the way you replied here. Please do not reply to another member like this here again if you wish to continue participating here.
This type "meta commentary" isn't helpful, and only serves to exacerbate situations by promoting an "anything goes" type of atmosphere. As arguably amusing as this and things like it are, please don't interject them in threads that are already having issues.
Thank you to everyone who replied civilly to this thread. Everyone is free to disagree here, but there wouldn't be a community here to have discussions and disagreements at if members participate without regard to whether their posts will repel new members and/or visitors. That's something we're not about to allow to happen, so please be mindful of it when you post.
If anyone has any questions or comments, please start a thread in the Talk to the Team forum, where only members of the Horse Forum Team can see and reply to your posts.
