When someone replies to a post stating "In my opinion" that's exactly what it is - their opinion.
Just because you disagree with them does not give you the right to tell them that they don't know what they're talking about or reply with snark and mean spiritedness. That goes for whether they're a brand new or long time member, a mod. or the freakin pope.
If you need to refresh your memory on the forum rules, please do.
To the OP, sorry that your thread turned into a bit of a flame war. It's typically a friendly place to hang out.
Yes,,measured opinion's and debate are essential to learning.
I have, and alway's will,offer my view's though some might disagree.(so be it)
There is in my view many thing's that are detrimental to keeping fish healthy in the long run, and also that which makes keeping fish healthy easy,easier,easiest.
I've got pretty thick skin,I'm up for debate when needed or to explain my point .
Those that ain't,,, Stay out of the way, and read,listen,research point's, topic's,that you wish to more clearly understand and for added input/opinion's.
I have spent month's lurking on other sites reading,learning,measuring opinion's,and none of this was possible when I began keeping fish nearly 40 yrs.ago.
I ain't all warm and fuzzy,and don't need no moderator's tryin to make it so.
Sometimes you just need to hear the truth bluntly so you remember it.
If you wish to remove this post,I'll meet you in the alley, and give ya twenty minutes to attract a crowd of your choosing.
