He is technically correct. He may not be "right".

Some folks have the proper attitude; see here:I might just have a problem

Now, if you'll excuse me, I must be on my way.

Possibly so, however he is still right. That goes along with, "Win the Rat Race, OK, but you are still a Rat." PLEASE, I BEG ALL, NOTHING PERSONELL HERE!

Thank you Jeff for working to keep this forum a fun and great place to visit.

Maybe it's because everyone is getting uptight with all the crazy stuff in the news right now and through (at least) early November.

But I agree with above statements that this a great place to visit and one of only a handful of sites I visit almost daily. Jeff has created a great community and storehouse of knowledge on this site. Kudos Jeff!

Man! What a let down! With a thread title like "forum decorum", I was sorta expecting one of those "There once was a lad from Nantucket" rhymes.

Sorry, Jeff, I just couldn't resist....the opportunity to have a little fun while remaining within the bounds of good taste and playful, yet respectful banter.

I know I've had somewhat of a hiatus, but this forum is still the great forum it was when I joined back in 2005. Seems like only yesterday. Now we had our share of personalities, don't get me wrong. And it seemed like at least a member a month was getting banned for awhile. But this too settled down. You can't have this many people talking about the same stuff and NOT have personality conflicts. But that doesn't mean being disrespectful is okay. And if I've been at fault, I must apologize... to all of you, but mainly to Jeff! He deserves better from us for giving us a place to share our passion.

I'm a little disappointed. When I saw the title I thought this was a discussion about decorating the IAP logo.

Not always..............
