    This is our thread...you all stay out!

    So I've noticed a bit of a trend in some threads lately. Started with the iodine thread, leptin, cold water, now tators. Seems some people don't like anyone coming on "THEIR THREAD" and spreading *the horror* other ideas! I may be lost on forum etiquette, but I thought much of what we write was open to interpretation and analysis and hopefully even a bit of constructive criticism.

    I see all kinds of weird stuff....not to single out the tator thread, but thats just the most recent place. Posters complaining that anyone offer a logical physiological mechanism or *gasp* suggesting you change it up by adding fat to the tator! Yeah, some fella was laying into another poster for actually adding a bit of fat to get through yet another day of tators. Oh Noooooos! BTW I actually haven't seen Otzi becoming Grizz or anything....its mainly some of the Johnny come late-lies.

    Anyone wanna clear this up for me. I mean if you want closed community of people not open to outside influence or ideas....well that sounds like a good way to delude yourself, but maybe not the best way to learn. And no I don't think you can say the same of this forum as a whole considering the variety of POV and articles shared. Guess my point is YOUR thread is on THIS forum.....ITS NOT YOURS EXCLUSIVELY (unless I'm wrong....as I said, I haven't read the book on forum etiquette).

    Every forum I've been a part of has this kind of thing going on. It's annoying, but there will always be folks out there who think their way is the ONLY way.

    Really? You have to ask?

    You have more time on your hands than I thought.

    So name call and bash "what you think is stupid" all you want, then get back to creating
    some really valid threads, like this one.

    Good job, you got the attention you so desperately need.

    High five.

    Yes, you quote my response to one person telling another that if they added any fat to the potato (by the way said poster did so on like day 4 ONE TIME just to get through and on to the next day). He tells that poster they may as well just go eat some bags of potato chips if they aren't gonna do it right! LOL. Hey read more than one comment and you might be able to follow the conversation. Thats OK, I'm sure you were pressed for time......

    I think people get protective of their threads....there's a big difference between:

    "This is interesting in theory, but have you considered that it might not be a good idea due to x, y, and z."

    and

    "You guys are all morons for trying something so obviously stupid and pointless."

    I think people should definitely jump in on threads and offer differing opinions, especially if they can back it up with evidence, but even if they can't. There's just a way to go about it that doesn't get people's panties in a bunch.

    Meh, it's ok. I shoulda made this about the leptin and iodine thread. The tator thing seems to emotional for some to discuss at this time.

    ^^ This.
    There is a nice way to say stuff, and a rude way to say stuff. Sometimes just reading what you have entered BEFORE you post it, and consider how it's going to sound, helps.

    That said, you sort of need a thick hide to be able to tolerate most forums!
