Negative comments21 Replies
I posted an article yesterday which provoked some comment. Thank you for those comments, both negative and positive. I could have chosen my phrasing in a better way. It was really intended to let others know (those perhaps new to the forum) that it is possible to serve your community if you've a mind to, as long as you are registered to vote here. You can only be a Maire or deputy Maire if you are a French citizen. It annoys me also that there are those, who seem to enjoy having a dig at others, picking them up on many things such as their use of Capital letters or their inability (in their opinion) to use the search facility properly, when, I have found it very difficult to find an article that I knew was there. It annoys me that people pose a question on this forum and are then shot down in flames by other members. I like a bit of banter, but would those people be as rude to another person face to face? We can't all be perfect. I have found this site to be a useful source of information in the past, but less so now. People come to a site such as this in search of information and sometimes friendship. Perhaps there should be a permanent separate topic thread on the left sidebar for those that consider themselves to be part of Section C below:- fo•rum (?f?r ?m, ?fo?r ?m) n., pl. fo•rums, fo•ra (?f?r ?, ?fo?r ?) 1. the marketplace or public square of an ancient Roman city, the centre of judicial and business affairs and place of assembly. 2. a court; tribunal. 3. a. a meeting place for discussion of matters of public interest or a means through which such discussion can be conducted, as a newspaper. b. a public meeting or assembly for such discussion. c. a discussion of a public issue or other serious topic by a select group, as of experts or specialists, esp. a radio or television broadcast for this purpose.
