I have just read Scot's post.

I have never been in any kind of chat room, don`t `do` Facebook or Bebo, or Twitter - this was my first venture into chatting on the web and I have found it a safe and friendly place to be.

(Thank you, Scot !)

May all forumites always feel safe, welcome and comfortable here.

When unfriendly, offensive remarks are posted on the open forum it is there for all to see. When offensive, hurtful private messages are sent...only the recipient thereof can read it.

Please don't hesitate to tell a mod if you receive any PM that makes you feel unwelcome, unworthy or uncomfortable.

That makes me very sad..

to be honest, I found myself behaving in a way I was not proud, but it was because of this reason.

we have no idea of who posts, their motivation, their courage.. but I have watched how the forum has become the stage of childish egos..

I have learnt to admire Scot, she is a fountain of wisdom..

I do not want to open a can of worms.. again, but what I want to say is, "please, put ego aside.."

My sincerest wish for all forumites is that not one of us will ever again be made to feel sad because of what we experience on this forum, MM.

I have been disappointed at times, I have been ashamed at times, I have cried, laughed and have had the bestest of times on our beloved forum.

May 2010 bring us tolerance, wisdom and love.
