Anne, there are many people who post on these forums, and there are also many people whojump to conclusions, sometimes rightly, sometimes wrongly.
I'm sorry that it seems 'plain to you' as that is not the case in this instance. This thread is for discussion on the way we comment, and how changing that at certain times can make the forum a much better place for all users.
I am disappointed that you take 'exception to this thread', and point out that if you don't agree with my comments here, then so be it, yes?
I'm also a little sad that find this thread 'dramatic', and a bit shocked that you think it is in response to one comment of yours, when there are many comments being made on a daily basis that could fit the mould.
I personally feel a lot of us could do with discussing this issue, as it just might make things better?
