    That’s all very well, Stephen, and easy for you to say when you don’t have the headache of trying to manage those types of characters.

    Me? I like a quiet life, and so if folk are more interested in using a forum for their own selfish ends/personal entertainment, than in trying to fit in constructively with our ethos/community, then they can go somewhere else and play their games, as life’s too short to spend it mixing with irritants - especially when I have to pay for the privilege of ‘housing’ them!

    The bottom line is that I wouldn’t associate with such people in real life, so neither do I want them here.

    My own view Stephen, is that it's fine for members to have a controversial or contrary point of view, but a constant "irritant" or confrontational stance just for the sake of being like that, gets nobody anywhere.

    Precisely, Geoff. We’re only interested here in people who wish to be a positive influence on our community, and form a constructive part of that. ‘Trolls’, whether blatant or subtle, are completely unwelcome.

    Also, in terms of holding a contrary view, disagree away, but always be respectful of the other person’s opinion, even if you don’t agree with it - and most importantly, exercise the social skills and tolerance to know when to back off in an argument and ‘agree to disagree’, before it causes offence, otherwise you simply come across as an inconsiderate and arrogant buffoon.

    During a debate, there’s simply no need to bludgeon someone into submission, simply because you *think* you’re right!
