I respect that.
It feels like a very anti-TUG vibe to me to be calling out individuals for their posting style. IMO, take it up privately with the individual. Or take it up behind the scenes with the mods. But don’t start a thread discussing someone else.

This thread is bad enough. When you decided to start a second one, it got to be too much.

Just my opinion. If others here want to start a trend like this and the mods are ok with it, so be it. I’ll just head elasewhere on the internet because I have no interest in hanging out where those kind of posts become the norm.

I think you’re being a little negative or misunderstand. I actually like Richard’s posts. I just wanted to see some hard stats on the overwhelming support for Richard’s posts, instead of stories. Like I said, it was 5-0 in support of Richard’s posts until you torpedoed said poll.

GH, I have no problems with your posting style. Why is it so hard to understand that if you have no interest in a particular subject, simply ignore it? :shrug:

He doesn’t criticize what anyone else posts, no need to criticize what he posts. Very easy not to read them. I think complaining takes more time and energy.

I myself read what interests me. Just read a sad story on measles and posted to give info on how affordable it is to get tested.

You mean the Israeli mother? That was sad.

Thanks to these posts I now know who this guy Richard is and have been able to enjoy the articles he posts now. That flight attendant.....so sad.

It was me.
I reported it too. It just seemed over the top after a 5 (now 6) page thread about Richard's posts. It seems like there are one or two threads a year about Richard's posts. I look at Richard as our own personal news aggregator, and one of the nicest parts of the lounge. It's super easy to scroll on by or ignore him if it's not your cup of tea. I just don't think that he needs to be singled out.

After reading more replies here, I see I missed some of Richard's posts that I would have liked to read/glance at.

I also think it's an invitation to start a conversation and informative at the same time.

As long as Brian isn't complaining about taking up too much server space, who cares? I love seeing all of the interesting posts from Richard. Feel free to read or just move along.

I respect that. If there is a thread critical of Richard, I just wanted a poll that supported Richard. For the record, it was 5-0 in support of Richard before such poll was torpedoed.

I am glad to hear that. I appreciate that it wasn't meant to be critical.

I understand where you were coming from, but the poll post did not come off that way, IMO. It would be like me starting a poll asking, "Do you find Grammarhero's posts interesting or relevant on this board?". That would be totally inappropriate, even it it was my intention to give you support because I thought your posts were the best ever.

In general, calling out a single person for what/how they post is just not my cup of tea. Make sense?

I think the Tug Lounge is the right place for this. Isn't it supposed to be a place to chat? What do most people chat about at work outside of their upcoming vacations? Often the news or the weather. Quite glad we are not getting posts on the weather. :thumbup:

For what it's worth, I don't read all of Richard's posts. Maybe half and half. Without them, though I wouldn't have read- or remembered reading about Neil Armstrong's passing- important only to me because I'm going in for a similar procedure fairly soon. Lounge posts are like that. Some you read, some you pass. Some you share or comment on. I don't read all of Grammarhero's either. And I would hope that nobody reads all of mine. That's the value of the lounge. A big room with lots of conversations. Pick and choose. Just like a 'real' lounge.

Enjoy. Have one on me.

This is so funny. When I saw the title “MULTIZ321 Please Stop Posting News” I thought it was an article that MULTIZ321 found and posted. And seeing MULTIZ321 name made me think “oh, this could be interesting.”

I like it when MULTIZ321 posts articles. No, I don’t like finding my own news. I find news on the web pretty depressing. When MULTIZ321 post like 10 articles in a row it always makes me smile. They are such a range of stories.

Poor @Kel hasn't been back since last Friday, less than a day after posting this thread. It's okay, Kel. We don't all have to agree.

So true! As someone once told me, if everyone liked the same thing, then no one would be able to find their car in the parking lot.

I totally respect the right to hold a different opinion. I hope that the OP comes back. It's not that big of a deal, and in five years we won't even remember.

Just back from four weeks on an Alaska RV trip with limited cell service. Wow, I didn’t mean to cause trouble here. I did say please with a happy face.

And, I forgot I can ignore posters. That cleared a lot of posting clutter for me. Thank you. Cheers and happy travels! Closed.
