Thread Name: BS: On the cowardly nature of GUEST postings
Subject: RE: BS: On the cowardly nature of GUEST postings
As I have said before, a structural change at Mudcat would eliminate this fight. It is pointless to argue about whom is ruder to whom. The artificial difference created by the ability to post as guest or member with name or guest with any name creates the problem which is manifested in posts. Solve that problem and you solve the "rudeness" problem.

"Personality" problems in organizations can always be solved with a structural change. Max wants it this way and hopes for us all to change our behavior but that is much less predictable than the result of a structural change on human internet behavior. So we fight.
