If bookworm's foul-mouthed snitfest was at all indicative of the behavior engaged in by the "Super-Secret Group," I'm kind of wondering why these people were drawn to an etiquette forum in the first place. There are some posters here I don't particularly care for, it's true- that's to be expected on a large forum. And occasionally someone will post something that makes me turn to my husband and go "Can you believe this? I mean, is this person insane?? ?" But I would never badmouth this forum or its other posters in the sort of manner we've seen on display here.
And Sio, I usually disagree with the things you post, but I like reading what you have to say because it is so different. It always gets me thinking about things, and you are always polite, even when people respond in a not-so-nice manner.
