I have been an avid reader of the Q&A threads, I've learned a lot of good things from some of the posters but of late (and yes here we go again) I am seeing respondents to posts Flaming each other, using Vulgarity and and off topic items all of which are Violations of the posted Guidelines. And to be honest I don't think there are enough Lindens in the world to constantly watch the Blogs and Q&A. How do we as a group help others learn what is appropriate and what is inappropriate behavior. I have filed complaints against the worst offenders but to no avail. I hear everyone complaining about problems but few offering constructive answers. I am including some parts of the Guidelines here in hopes of spurring some thought and positive discussion about this. I am of an older generation that was raised to say please and thank you, to treat others with respect. And to say to ourselves "would I want this done or said to me?" and if the question is no then not to say or do it. I am also not of the thinking that "I have to do it to them, before they do it to me". And I know that many out there agree. I am pleading with all here to begin using manners and courtesy when dealing with others, your behavior here reflects your behavior in-world and in RL and I don't know about you but I would never want to be treated the way some treat others.
