To: rockinqsranch; She hits a grand slam tonight
Not to get in the middle of yet another back and forth bicker about "already posted" and its retort, but this nonsense has become tiresome on FR ... both parties have valid points to make about it, but it shouldn't become the main focus of any posts in any given thread (or multitude of similar threads, as it were)

Bandwidth is cheap ... but words, thoughts, and opinions can be very rich .. and isn't that why we're here?

If a similar story has been posted way too many times for the Mods to stomach, then they'll sort it out on their terms ... otherwise, enjoy the banter as it comes, and don't ever feel intimidated by the self-proclaimed FR Posting Police

Nuff Said,

To: Mr_Moonlight; All
MM,

I agree.

All one has to do is just skip over a post if it has been discussed to his/her own satisfaction previously-and without insulting the current poster!

It's unrealistic to think that any/all posters are here so often that they may know for certain that something has or has not been discussed recently.

This kind of thing discourages people from participating and posting. I'm speaking from my personal experience. I came here a couple nights ago with the intention to post an article, but after reading some of the bickering in this thread I decided it wasn't worth the chance of being cut down. As I'm an infrequent poster and visitor I'm not always up on what has been talked about recently.

A message forum should be a fun, informative and- most of all- a civil place for people to come together.
