    Default Respect

    Guys, In case your unable to figure it out, the public is able to read everything that is said on here. Lets quit with the bashing each other name calling and being ignorant. All your managing to do is give the fire service a black eye. Lets grow up and act like adults. If your unable to act your age then its time to get out of the fire service.

    And the public reads everything that is posted on Facebook, Twitter (what ever the hell that is), and all the social networking sites. It still stops no one from making complete asses of themselves.

    Let people run their traps, it shows the quality of their character and lets users know whom to use as a reliable source and who the yard breathers are.

    I'd be willing to bet that 99.99% of the public doesn't even know this website exists....

    While that's likely true, we should still treat each other with respect.

    Newcomers to this website aren't necessarily new to the fire service. If they see a bunch of name-calling and disrespect they likely will take their knowledge and experience elsewhere.

    Just because a question seems stupid to you doesn't mean it's not a valid question and deserving of a legit answer.

    Just because the long-timers have seen topics like POV lights discussed over and over doesn't mean it shouldn't be discussed anymore. If you don't want to contribute positively to the discussion, move along.

    Remember there are a lot of bad methods and tactics out there that are still being taught. If someone posts something that you feel is wrong don't ridicule them. They may not know any better. Instead, explain why they're wrong and you're right.

    BTW, try hookt in foniks, it werkt fer me!!!

    What Blulakr said.

    As I've already posted elsewhere - a gentle nudge may point a noob in the right direction, and they may become a valuable asset to the forum. Telling them they're stupid for not knowing about search, or because we've long since written off that particular tactic just pushes them away.

    I do believe that there should be sub-forums for some of these hot-button topics, like POV lights and helmets.

    I know that as a moderator on a local board I can move threads - I'm sure the WT can as well, and should move such threads to the proper sub-forum. The move leaves a memo in the original forum saying the thread has been moved.

    And please don't feed the trolls.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    Also, your grammar is hideous.
