Manners, please

June 29, 2013

Most of the time, I really enjoy reading the letters that local people write into the Sun-Gazette. There are a wide variety of political views on display....

Well Cayman,

"These people are also the Saturday night sinners who become the Holier-than-thou Sunday morning saints. "

It's no secret that I spend my Sundays in church, mornings and evenings...so your comment is duly noted.

"Thank you Mr. Shulski for your letter, I could not agree more.

It is wrong to call people names or ridicule them because their thoughts are different than yours, that is nothing more than bullying, but I think your request will fall on deaf ears." - BornHere

There you go, again.

"Please, try to listen to people who challenge conventional views rather than censor them with name calling." - Michael Shulski

The S-G could do a much-better-job, as well.

I can't believe I'm the only person, here, who frequents political-forums (and, done so, since the mid-'90s). Typically, in those forums....MANY people will reference online-data/sites, to defend their position....obviously, not allowed, here.

I don't understand why (any) such references, here, couldn't merely be displayed as "dumb"-text (as-opposed-to hypertext).

Either way....I BLAME RERON REAGAN!!! Ever since he said "There you go, again!"....more-and-more, people have taken to marginalizing their "opponents", with Reagan-like/sophomoric quips...and, it's gotten progressively-worse, ever since.

To me, all the sniping that goes on here is comparable to "road rage". The bad manners surface whenever someone posts a comment that someone else determines is not in line with their own opinion(s). That is when the name calling and ridiculing surfaces, because with this forum comes a certain amount of anonymity and remoteness not available with a face-to-face conversation. They know it's the "safe" way, and the only way, to insult, demean and belittle someone else without risking physical retaliation. These people are also the Saturday night sinners who become the Holier-than-thou Sunday morning saints.
