Ok, I'll re-open that thread and edit out the bickering - sorry, Thing.

And, we do indeed use temp-bans to get people to chill out. I wouldn't want to name names but suffice to say, it's usually worked. I hate resorting to that but you know, sometimes it is necessary.

Just rep posts you like. Don't have to do anything else. People will rep stuff you've written if they like it. Don't worry about it.

And hey, I've had my posts deleted plenty of times on gaming forums (telling people to shut up is not constructive, apparently), and if things get out of hand the mods tend to trim out anything that's wildly off topic and more about the posters than about the thread itself. Sometimes it's just nicer if newer members don't have to read through all the rubbish.

Bickering happens. A forum is just another form of communication and when you get so many strong personalities together it's bound to happen. It is nice that it's few and far between here.

Thanx for the explanation on the reputation thing. I won't worry about it (too much lol) There's so many little things at ESF that I haven't seen on other forums.

And sometimes I think a 'shut-up', while not necessarily constructive, is necessary lol

I was a Torontonian for 30 years until moving to Ottawa. It's beautiful here, lots of greenery. Autumn here is gorgeous and one of my fav

Me too, UQ, I was 30 when I moved here. Stayed in Ottawa 3 years while attending Carleton and then moved to Chelsea...then Val-des-Monts...now way out here. They said I'd last 6 months away from TO; they were wrong.

I love The Ottawa area, I'm very happy I moved here, I don't think I'd move back. Unless there was a sweet job line up for me in TO.
