    I second that request. Right now I have to go to my profile and look through recent posts. If there is some easier way I'm all for it. TYIA

    A point to ponder for the Powers that be.

    I wonder about the possibility of increased forum participation if there was not incessant personal bickering in nearly every thread.

    i have no suggestions nor answers; only an observation from the high cheap seats of the arena.

    have a terrific day, y'all.

    This presents a conundrum. Because while it is undeniably true that incessant personal bickering has become the norm on this forum, the only way to deal with it is to assign blame and that would entail a great deal of bickering in and of itself. So instead of just having it out and determining, once and for all, who is responsible for this state of affairs, the forum will continue limping along as it labors under the burden of false equanimity.

    If there is a way to stop political and personal bickering it hasn't been invented yet. The POTUS bickers via Twitter with sitting US Senators and heads of foreign states. Hell, I bet the letters between Jefferson and Adams were as much or more caustic. It just took a few days between sending and receiving by couriers on horseback.

    Can we get clarification as to the expected demeanor of Advisors? Are they allowed to blatantly insult other posters without recourse?

    You caught me before returning to my seat.
    You make a good point which spurs a thought.
    Might it be advantageous to encourage individuals to look toward themselves to find responsibility and determine to end the bickering; without casting blame.

    A simple beginning could be found with not ending a reasonable point with a final "gotcha" and personally directed aspersion.
    it could be a start.

    Thank you for your response; I now beg your leave in order to return to my seat.

    Make it a great day!

    The Advisors are regular members like you and me. Well, I am somewhat irregular in my demeanor admittedly.

    Why should Advisors walk on water. You and I sure don't.

    Advisors are subject to the same rules and moderation you are. If you feel they are breaking them report it.
