Is it just me, or in the last week have people got more aggressive here?, Iâ€™m not just referring to the Namoh thing, but the general feeling seems more hostile.
So when writing something negative about somebody else consider:
*Are you going to get the person to stop doing what they did that you disliked, or are you just making them angrier?
- It may be that you just need to remove anger at the person you are flaming, and not a direct request for change.
*If you are getting them to stop doing something, is asking aggressively necessary?
- Often people answer in a bad tone, when the same thing could be said just as well without it.
*Is it helpful to say it in public, or better to be said via PM?
â€“ Bringing things in public often makes people â€œtake sidesâ€, this creates more tension.
*Are they in the mood to receive criticism?
â€“ It is often easy to tell if somebody on the forum is in a bad mood, if so, it may be better to wait until they are happier and then make a comment, it will be a lot more constructive then.
Just relax, and donâ€™t take threads too seriously, if somebody is annoying you, it may be they have there own problems outside of CDFreaks, wait a few days, and see if they stop.
These are my own personal views, not necessarily those of CDFreaks or any of its staff or members
ps. Sorry if I am behaving like a mod again
