    Negativity

    Is all the negativity on this forum website really needed? Not so much the negativity focused on the basketball team, everyone can voice their own opinion on that. It's the negativity towards each other on this website that has me growing tired of even getting on here anymore.

    Topics are posted on this website to discuss, not argue about. It seems like some people on here can't handle it if people don't see things their way, and it's wearing thin.

    I hope people agree that some of the postings on this website have gotten to be somewhat childish and rude. I just wanted to see if anyone was feeling the same way, because I'm tired of all the rudeness directed at one another.

    Re: Negativity

    There really needs to be a CF handbook about what we can and cannot say. That would make everything easy. It would also make the environment positive because we wouldn't be putting others down.

    CF can never be a communist entity. It isn't a country, so the redistribution of wealth and having people do jobs they're good at isn't going to happen.

    Re: Negativity

    Agreed. I would contribute more if there wasn't so much negativity. But in my experience, that is the culture of message boards. Show me a message board that isn't negative, and you'll show me a message board that doesn't exist.

    Re: Negativity

    Seriously, define "negative".

    Lots and lots of people define any kind of disagreement as being "negative."

    Personally, I love controversy and spirited debate. However, I will agree that too many posters go straight to personal attacks instead of developing a well-thought-out argument.

    Re: Negativity

    Phaedrus, you make a good point about intelligent dialogue in a spirited manner. What I do not like is when boarders get immediately, personal and go after the juggler when their viewpoint is questioned. When I post something, I take the approach that if I am "arguing" with someone on here that we are sitting in the same room and act accordingly. I always chuckle when somebody gets really bent out of shape and makes ridiculous threatening comments to some other poster. I vision some hyper little nerd sitting in a cubicle stuck on the fifth floor with no windows with a paper shuffling nowwhere job showing off his testicles with his fingers on a keyboard
    On another note, Phaedrous, my nephew is an Army Ranger-Mountain Division Platoon leader. To be deployed to Afghanistan next month. He is a ground grunt and will be in the thick of it. My concern level is a "10+". Kudos to you and all those who serve.

    I agree, but rather than not get on, how about putting some of the offenders on ignore?

    It's not a CF problem, it's an ISU MBB problem.

    So what you're saying is the ISU MBB team losing turns the majority of CF posters into immature spoiled brats?

    It's getting to the point I really don't enjoy CF much anymore. If you put all the brats on ignore list, then you go to some threads and you can't read 3/4 or the posts.

    Re: Negativity

    I read clever generally good natured responses on this board. It's a ray of sunshine compared to another site which will go unnamed.

    If a spoiled brat is someone very displeased with the current state of this program - so be it.
