    One day passed, and things overall seem to be going pretty well for this month. I saw some strongly worded posts, but actual rudeness toward anyone. But then again, I haven't read every post.

    So.....how'd you on the first day of August? Did you find this day difficult? Was there a time when you thought "man, I could get this person good with an insult", but resisted the urge? Was anyone rude to you, but you were able to be the bigger person?

    Please, please, PLEASE don't mention any actual names of any posters or even the thread; just let me know your experience.

    And keep up the good work.

    I had to put some thought into a post or two to make sure it didn't come out as the person
    I was talking to was the issue. I think it is to easy to do that without even trying.

    Cool. In a post on the August thread, you said that this may be "harder" than you originally thought. Glad to see it wasn't.

    So far the Duke has kept a cool head, even though one dude started blowing kisses.

    I haven't much of a problem. I try to remember this..
    Prov 13:10
    Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
    KJV

    I know that it is only pride that causes much of man's problems. It required much introspection on my part. But if anyone really thinks about it, anger and conflict are due to pride. In this setting (forum) we tend to think "How dare this person to disagree with my view?"

    Wow. Sorry that happened. I applaud you for at least attempting to remain civil.

    I suspect the rascal is deploying gentle sarcasm.

    Hi Kelly, are you going to talk to me this month or continue to ignore me? What do I need to do for you to be nice to me?

    No, I meant "gotcha" as in "I understand you. I got what you're saying."

    Suppose this extra niceness causes the Forum to get boring .. what then?

    What is the priority around here .. nice/civil or exciting .. both may not be possible.
