Subject: RE: BS: On the cowardly nature of GUEST postings
"People who have a problem with GUEST postings have an easy solution: use a members only forum."

While you offer an elegant solution to those who are obviously disturbed by the presence of anonymous forum users Peter, I'm sure you realize the reason so many members use this forum exclusively. They get their daily passive/aggressive fix here. Can you think of any other folk forums where members would be allowed to constantly and routinely attack, belittle, and so persistently harp about a specific group of forum users with impunity?

Dysfunctional passive/aggressive personalities are richly rewarded here. That is why they stay and continue to multiply. No other folk forums on the internet will have them.

As to the "poetry". I wouldn't call it that. I'm voting with the side that says we shouldn't encourage this sort of thing.
