Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: SCOUTS-L Flaming
Sat, 31 Oct 1998 11:05:47 EST
In recent weeks, several subjects have come to the front triggering strong
emotions on both sides.
The results have been some flames....something I had thought was not possible
on SCOUTS-L. Anger...personal attacks.....name
calling....taunting....outright put downs
What happened to allowing each their own view and honest diagreement?
FLAMING KILLS HONEST PATICIPATION!!! Other info boards loose the very people
they need to be effective over this simple issue.
Perhaps the next time an issue get blood boiling, some thought might go into
the post rather than the personal attacks. If in doubt, chek the Scout Law,
and compare it to the post.
Would we accept that kind of behavior (flaming verbally) for a Cub or Scout at
a den or Pack meeting? I doubt it.
