Hello all, To avoid this forum going the same way as the GQ forum, let's set some rules for ourselves. What do you think of these, Steve? 1. Participants shall refrain from denigrating another participant's opinion or tastes, and from commenting on another participant's age, financial situation, familial status, etc... This is markedly different from posting one's own opinion on a pertinent matter (e.g. you might post your opinion that you believe that young people shouldn't deficit spend, but not that you think Participant X spends too much money). 2. . Participants shall likewise refrain from boasting of their own accomplishments. I doubt very much whether boasting about one's alma mater or one's material success is gentlemanly behaviour. I personally find this type of behavior particularly crass, and I think that we ought to actively discourage it. These are really just common manners that shouldn't need to be made so explicit. Anyway, please feel free to add your opinions so that we can come to some sort of consensus.
