hmmm....higher quantity of posts & people = more chance for grumpy replies. Hadn't thought of that- Thanks!

Stay calm and carry on.

We just don't know what personal hell someone is going though, and sometimes we are on the receiving end of it.

I'm sorry people are being snitty. I think people just live to get on support boards and argue. I have not spent any time on the general board, and now I am thinking I don't want to.

I rarely visit the community boards. I get great positive support from the teams I've chosen to participate in. On the community boards you have more people in general so more chance of snarky or negative comments. My opinion at least.

oh yeah I have seen and felt the same that is why I no longer post on community board Though I have also seen it on some teams as well if you disagree with someone they will rip into you I'm learning to take it where it comes from very insecure person

I've never participated with the general boards, i'm way more interested in how those of US do things and the like, those people don't know a hard life, so live harshly. You can share a quote with them that I use in my emails, "Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is fighting some sort of battle."

I have noticed that too. I only post on the boards that come diredtly into my inbox. I find it safer that way.

Is it just me or does anyone else feel like there are almost always people on the Community general team discussion boards that are consistently argumentative for the sake of being argumentative??

I have posted there a number of times and it seems like any time I disagree with someone on a topic there is always at least one person who replies with a very snarky response?

Example - are pistachios bad for you? I posted some info that I gleaned from a nutritional website (a great site by the way, I included the link below) and said that they were actually leaner than most other nuts, but not by much. ANother person posted, yes nuts of all kinds are good for you in moderation (true). But someone else just had to say something snarky (and of course now that I want to repeat their comment I see that it has been erased!)

Once I had a very unpleasant experience with a person in a high-end outdoors equipment & apparel store and posted about it in a rant-saying I was going to rant because I felt the employee had treated me very poorly. You can't imagine how badly I got flamed over that post - I mean, really mean stuff. The entire thread was deleted, but not before I seriously considered quitting SP altogether.

There have been a couple of other situations there, too. So..is it just me or do people on the general board seem more ..tense???

BTW- here's that awesome nutrition link. More nutritional data than you can shake a stick at! Hope it helps! www.nutritiondata.com/

Stay calm and carry on.
