OK Y'all. What's with all the attitudes????

Hi folks. I watch this board all the time. (What, you think I spend all day actually doing my job??) In the past couple of months this forum has gone from a very friendly place to learn about Paris and have fun, to a snarky, mean place. Why?

I've been around here for years and have noticed that, periodically, the forum (or some of the posters) goes loopy. Who knows why.

The anonymity of the Internet adds to it.

Be careful. Posts like this almost always go nutty.

One of the posts people go consistently nutty is "

What to Wear in Paris?" It happens nearly every time.

Sometimes people criticize a poster's itinerary in a mean way.

Sometimes people throw in political points of view which are completely irrelevant and which inflame other people who disagree and are here just to help or get help regarding Paris.

Some people are consistently negative and pessimistic about nearly everything. You know who they are. They are negative about their trip(s) to Paris. They are negative in the way they respond. Then other people need to decide whether they will cheer the person up, ignore them, or try to sift through the "negative" to find any useful point.

I am sure it has something to do with cyber moon cycles!

Or drink, or fell out of bed wrong way, or fell out with partner, or just fed up replying to same questions ?.

Seriously though, I have gotten a lot of good info from this forum. Not just from asking questions, but from somebody else' answer.

Thank you very much everybody.

Cheers,

Barclay.

I know what you mean. Sometimes I put up a seemingly innocuous post and people jump all over me.

I think it's probably worthwhile to ask the specific people in question...it's always the same folks, you know...

When things get particulary snarky (love this word), check out the London forum. Lots of light hearted people and answers reminds you of what a forum should strive to be like.
