It bothers me far more that every time there is a discussion about movie theatre etiquette, someone will invariably say "I just don't understand why people can't go a few hours without eating. I mean, goodness, it's not like you're starving
To me that's far more judgemental and dismissive. Yet you could argue the same thing, that it's just an opinion and everyone's entitled to them, and to post them.
Frankly, I think these things would better be posted on the 'little things that drive you up a wall' thread. Because I'm sure we all have our little quirks and opinions about the 'correct' way to post here, and when someone is being obviously rude, they are going to get called on it. I just don't think that questioning a poster is necessarily rude, certainly not the first time. If the same poster comes back three times saying, "really?, You'd really do that?" then it think it's time for a testy "I said it and I meant it."
Condider B*reeders. I know there have been problems in the past, but (I feel) this forum is long past needing that word to be filtered. No one here uses that term for actual irresponsible parents of the human variety any longer. We just don't talk that way. A combination of self-moderating and mods-moderating has changed the culture of this forum sufficiently. I'm sure other issues that bother any one of us will either work itself out in time, or you just have to accept that a majority don't share your opinion
