it's been a while since i said those special words...
« on: May 08, 2009, 03:58:23 AM »
it must be a couple of years since i said how much i love DC. i know it often is said by other members, i just tend to forget that all forums aren't like this one.

i really don't bother with other forums but i have been frequenting another for a few months now. it seemed almost on a par with DC; everyone friendly and willing to help out it seemed. everyone seemed very sensible and amiable.

now, just recently, quite a few of the core members have decided to gang-up on a relatively new member. their methods and remarks have been quite alarming to me - they've shown themselves to be pretty immature and intolerant (i'd jump to conclusions and say they must be children but i know they are old enough to run their own businesses).

also, these same core members found humour in someone's disability - mainly through their ignorance so i was willing to forgive them that.

i'll not go into details of who and where; i just wanted to say that i've just realised (again) how special DC and everyone here is. and mouser, of course. i'm still waiting for the owner of the other forum to step in and provide some calm and reason to the situation - just like mouser would do - but i suspect it won't happen.

I absolutely second nudone's words. Every time my web searches lead me to some other forums, I just become aware again of how special this forum is, and how I'm glad I can be a member of this community. Thanks to all.

There's always a drawback though, eh?
After all, I'm still here.

what nudone and yksyks said!  :-*

Love this place, it's very special and there certainly isn't anything like it that I know of.  :drinksmiley:

Sad to hear, but I've seen the same sort of things happen, and it's what keeps me here on DC time after time.

Now, if folks posted here like they do on donationcoder IRC... *shivers*
 :P
