Re: Why A Discuss Board?
In Response To: Why A Discuss Board? ()
Dear Ms. Nelson and Discuss! Readers,
This board has provided me with many entertaining moments and a plethora of interesting information. I lament the possible demise of AfriGeneas Discuss! simply because a few posters do not observe the conventions of civility. Is there no alternative?
Every family has a member or members who are sometimes a bit raucous. I like to think that AfriGeneas is the place where we all learn from each other, not only about genealogy and history, current events and issues, but also about behavior and appropriateness. Some people may come here extremely gauche, others may make an occasional faux pas, but our blunders can become opportunities to learn. Rough edges can often be smoothed out.
If someone refuses to take advantage of the wisdom offered, is it possible to block that person from posting? Just because one rotten apple can spoil the whole barrel, shall we stop eating apples?
