2007-09-28 21:19:26   i went ahead and removed my post, and his. there is no sense in starting a flame war, which is what it seems like he was aiming for. You can post a reply without being confrontational, and everyone can be courteous.

Since he elected not to do so, i figured it best to avoid the situation entirely and just remove the post & subsequent flame. —Alexander1975

2007-09-28 21:32:07   Hi, Alexander,

I'm sorry if you felt that I was trying to flame you - that wasn't my intention. I do tend to be rather blunt, but I feel that's a virtue. Not everyone agrees. :)

I've spent enough time on Davis Wiki and other Wiki Spot wikis, both in terms of the content and in terms of the behind-the-scenes tasks, that I've come to feel strongly that negative and positive comments about a person or entity really do need to have substance and a bona-fide identity standing behind them. It's easy to trash-talk someone or something if you're sure that your own reputation isn't at stake, but when you're posting under your own real name then you have an incentive to think more about what you write. This is a community, after all, and communities thrive only when neighbors know each other.

FWIW, I'd be saying essentially the same thing if a Blockbuster apologist came on and started posting anonymous non-specific glowing reviews. —Graham.Freeman

2007-09-28 21:57:55   I understand your point of view. My intent wasn't to ingender ill will. In all fairness, there are enough negative comments about blockbuster to where one more from me would be like throwing water on a fish. —Alexander1975
