Since u accuse me as perpetrator leading to locked thread, then i have to blame my sin to Adam for eating the apple. Of course, Adam blames Eve for taking the apple, and Eve blames the serpent. If Eve didn't take and eat the apple, I wouldn't have not started those provocative postings, people will not have respond with negative comments which leads to those threads being locked.

Our more experienced BCers are aware of who the trolls are

..all the new BCers don't know abt them. Even there are experienced BCers who once in a while fell into the trap..

If I remember correctly, you don't need to log into/register an account to read posts in BC and there's nothing in BC that is stopping a new member from reading posts that were dated back in 2003.
It's ok cooler. If you think what you did was right, carry on. You don't have to agree with me. After all, I merely stated my opinions.

everyone, i am going to sound like a broken record again. but here it is.
in a environment like BC where everyone is allowed to give their opinion. it is up to everyone to help keep the discussion civilized and constructive.
in order to do that, almost everytime, it is not what is said that is important, but instead how one say it.
no matter how "right" you are, no matter how much you know, if what is being said is done in a manner that appears to be rude, arrogant, sarcastic, etc, then everyone will start to jump on you.. i give a very simple example.
A: "i believe that 1+1=2. to illustrate that, we can put one orange here, and then another next to it, and then if we count the total, we get 2. if you don't understand, let me know and we will explain further"
B: "of course 1+1=2 you stupid idiot, i have degree in mathematics and i have been in this forum for 20 yrs and i am always right and you cannot accused me of being wrong."
both person try to convey the same message, but person A conveys it much more effectively in this discussion environment.

one more point.
in a global discussion forum like BC, it is inevitable that you will run into somebody with a personality that you cannot bear. if you find that to be a problem, you can either:
1. ignore this person - which i must admit is a hard thing to do
2. put that person in your ignore list - as mentioned in previous posts in this thread, the forum software has a ignore list feature. make use of it.
someone wonder if one can ignore a thread, unfortunately we don't have such a feature, and unlikely it will be implemented unless if the new software has it. we will have to wait a couple of months and see.
as of right now, ignore list is the best way to do it.

I have seen many come and gone, mostly of those who couldn’t stand the scrutiny imposed on them by some BF members. Of course, there were some who also left BF for other reasons, maybe it’s not their flavor, university, work, marriage, etc. However, what concern me is the most is the withdrawal from technical discussion by certain members who I think have valuable information to contribute. It is maybe possible that most of the key topics have been discussed and they are just lying low. It maybe also because that they don’t want to risk saying it the wrong way so they clam up. I’m not sure, I did not ask them.

we are trying to moderate the forum such that useful information can be expressed in a polite and civil manner.
for those who are knowledgeable, say it in a nice way. if one know a bunch of stuff, why come out arrogant and rude? it makes much more sense to express it so it can be accepted.
for those who are seeking knowledge, or those who are less informed, polite ask for and accept new knowledge from others. no one knows everything, everyone need to learn from others.
that's the goal of the forum.
01-11-2010, 01:51 AM #66
the "natural" reasons like change of hobby/interests and life events from badminton is nobody's fault, we cannot do anything about.
however, there are those who are scared away by arrogant and rude technical and non-technical discussions. very few people wants join any forums in which everyone are rude. regardless of whether they have right or wrong thing to say.
and if that does happen, then it is not healthy. we want people to come here to discuss, so everyone can learn from each other, regardless of whether they are right or wrong. nobody is right all the time.
i hope our goal is not something difficult to understand.

Personally, i think BC has provided a lot of avenues, functions/features and enough wiggle room for members to express themselves. But when all said and done, it's really all up to each individual to make use of those features effectively. Doing so, will not only help the forum but it'll definitely help out kwun and the mods.

Arrogant posters spoil our discussions sometimes
This is so very true.
I have been told that many BCers wanted to reply/post their opinions but changed their minds. They got scared away by unfriendly and rude posters who only want to argue.
Sharing own opinions is a good thing. But arrogant posters spoil our discussions sometimes.
