There is a marked improvement in the general tone of discussions at BITOG in the last two months. Kudos to Helen and the moderators for taking the initiative to move our forum in this direction. While we all secretly laughed at the condescending troll interjections, they really derailed threads about topics many wished to share here. We now have discussions about television programming, attending movies, buying sharp new vehicles with financing, and even a thread about Twinkies snack cakes! No need to bring up names here. I hope the improvements continue.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I have to agree. No one with a long snoot nose talking down to us any longer. At least that was my mental image of him. smile

Addition by subtraction. He was knowledgeable but every post seemed to be propping himself up or putting people down.

Dang it! Trying to keep things positive here. I asked for no names in order to avoid the dreaded thread lock. Sigh.

Pop Rivit is gone? Hmm, never noticed.

But then again, I know this is just the internet, so I take nothing personal.
