/ *ISSUE THE FIRST* It is a valid point. Slang terms are suggestive of an hierarchy, in which there are "insiders" and "outsiders" and it is not indicative of a democratic attitude towards skills or knowledge. Good point McCracken. You are doing your job. ____________________________________________ **ISSUE THE SECOND** Again, you are doing your job, providing leadership ethics. I agree with this, because not only can people be injured, it violates the bond of trust which should exist between INSTRUCTOR / STUDENT if not FRIENDS & FAMILY. Besides, it is a proverbialism that MEAN PEOPLE SUCK. The ethic is especially important for a website, that encourages and desires membership. Otherwise, it seems that the idea is to laugh at and ridicule the general public and Novice shooters. Any attitude like that can virtually kill a website outright. You know, we met a guy at the annual get-together, who had been lurking for several years, and never posted. I wonder if this indicates how sensitive some people can be, to the possibilities of being ridiculed for your grammar, your lack of knowledge, or just being thought badly of by "rounders" who do nothing but look "down" on you for posting a question, etc. Good gripes, McCracken, and absolutely Top Drawer.
