The sentiment expressed in the first quote is indicative of how great things can be on the forum. Respecting others in spite of disagreements is the kind of atmosphere that encourages the exchange of information and ideas.

The second quote although stated in the context of discussing the forum rules was a bit of a downer.

It can’t be denied that both guys have consistently presented excellent points of view, but to my way of thinking, the quote from the first guy was more enlightened.

And the quote fron the second guy was meant to be taken in good humor.

But then again, I respect idiots as well.

Internet posts often convey different meanings to different people. Something written on the forum intended to be humorous may be perceived very differently by someone else reading it.
As always, thanks you for your point of view.

Reminds me of Hitchcock’s “Strangers on a Train”. Similar theme.

I've actually been told by lawyers and that I should be a judge and even considered running for town justice!
