Chuck,

It was a good time to meditate on impermanence when I first posted a reply to 
the subject posting, but not now.

Bill,
 
Maybe this is a good time to meditate on impermanence. This too shall pass.

Cynthia,

The only thing that can be done to stop the flaming is to turn this forum into 
a fully moderated forum in which the moderator - Al - reads and approves 
postings before allowing them on the forum. Al could also probably block some 
contributors, but they could get around this very easily by just registering as 
a different name.

A fully moderated forum has a lot of drawbacks:
- it's a LOT OF WORK for the moderator
- it slows down posting exchanges
- it gives the power of censorship to the moderator - which in this case is Al, 
whom I'm comfortable with, but it's always a bone of contention
- there are probably more drawbacks that I haven't thought of...

I think it would be better to keep the forum open and just censor the postings 
yourself - by using your delete key.

Also, and maybe the best suggestion, is we could all help reduce the flaming by 
not responding to flames - which I am guilty of. I do that because flaming 
doesn't bother me. Not responding would reduce the reason to flame because 
there would be no indignant reaction to fuel the flames.

What does everyone else think?

Al, this topic keeps coming up. What do you think?

...Bill!

I just want the flaming to stop. How can we get that crap off the group?
