My complaint is that this forum seems to get a free pass, but Critical Analysis needed to pay sorely for bad manners, in which, if you actually looked at the issues in CA you would see they didn't reach the frequency and depths of bad manners and sourness that this forum goes to. And Critical Analysis was rated PG, not rated G like this forum (Just pretending the ratings mean something).  Is there no more moderation in this forum to help try to keep manners within a more respectable level?  Or is Ron willing to accept anything/everything now, unless it is the most blunt personal insult?

I think this covers a lot of it:

Derision

That was posted in the Philosophy forum, but I don't see why it shouldn't stand in this forum as well.  

Another bad manner is trying to trash someone else's opinion or calling it an insolent name, which at least is not personal, but it is still no good manner and often provokes spiteful "shots" back and forth.  True, we can criticize people's opinions and complain, but I think we ought to be expected to show some level of respect and tolerance for other people's opinions.  And I am not saying that necessarily should be a "rule", but rather an expectation that the moderators can help uphold and encourage.

     Different set of standards, here, Essorant, I believe, and meant to be that way from the ground up.
