RE: Some Thread Title Here
This method of communication was created because the "discussions" (in the original GPL threads) were so non-constructive that they took incredible amounts of moderator time to remove all the personal attacks, propaganda, etc.
Our goal is to eliminate most, if not all, of the personal attacks, propaganda, name calling, finger pointing, etc. and hopefully help the community to sort through all of the posts, ideas, opinions, facts, questions, answers, speculation, etc.
The moderators thank you in advance for your cooperation and support in maintaining a measure of dignity and decorum on our forum and please remember that the forum rules still apply.
