    Re: Personal attacks

    I am assuming that you are referring to me with this post. If so, that is a reasonable hope on your part. You will not see me or any moderator of this board participate in personal character assination. Its not in line with our goals or philosphy.


    With that in mind, I have no intention of not speaking my mind or debating issues of interest to me. While I may be the owner, I am also a diver and have a vested interest in this sport for which I am extremely passionate about.


    So lets just try to get along and do some constructive things that improve the site and the sport at the same time.

    Re: Personal attacks

    Technical divers are some of the most bull headed type "A" people I know. To a degree I think essentially what you are asking is like asking "The Who" to please don't trash the hotel room.

    I appreciate the position of this original post...but I don't think it exists in the real world.

    Re: Personal attacks

    What I am about to pen below is not to criticize anyone or anything but in the hope that it will make us a better RBW community. I came across this recently and I think it is quite relevant to all of us including those who are leaders, who wants to be a leader or who bought into leadership (like politicians amongst others.) When we make a decision to change things or remove things or modify things, they are decisions that whether we like it or not, effects people around us. There is no such thing as changing things around without causing an effect and so if that is logical then it follows that ones decision must be properly tempered with extreme care even though certain ideas or styles maybe offensive to us. Not long ago people were burn at the stake for saying that there is a universe out there. We don't do those things now and America in recent times is seen as the last bastion of democracy but there is a danger still of people walking around softly wielding a big stick.

    "A peacemaker always fares better than an agitator.

    In today’s “everything is negotiable” society, we are bombarded with messages telling us that we get what we demand, not what we deserve. You may temporarily achieve success by demanding more than your due from others, but it will not long endure. “Squeaky wheels” may initially receive the most attention, but the wise wagon-master eventually replaces them. It’s easy to create problems and dissension but very difficult to lead others in a spirit of cooperation and harmony. Which type of individual do you think is most valuable to the organization? The greatest rewards in life — both financial and personal — will always accrue to the peacemakers of the world."

    PS: If I am correct the writer might be referring to Curt as he still calls himself a CEO if you check his Avatar. Philosophy is a big word and one is glad to hear that there is a RBW Philosophy. May we know what it is? Thank you.

    "I disagree." That's just an opinion.

    "You are absolutely wrong and everyone knows it." Still opinion, but ramping it up a bit and making it sound like a poll has been taken.

    "You are a total ass for saying that and will get people killed." Could be a bit over the line at that point, but it is still on topic.

    "Just forget about anything Monkey says. He is a total brainless jerk who always tries to incite people and believes in the rebreather fairy, or maybe he is the rebreather fairy." That is clearly personal attack having nothing to do with the current discussion about whether tech divers are type A personalities.

    There are many other responses that fall somewhere in the gray area, but I think I've picked on James enough. And BTW, I happen to agree with Monkey's statement.

    No as you do not have CEO under your name I cannot remember the exact words but I believe Curt made reference in the deleted post that a certain person would not be able to tell the truth if they only asked him his name, certainly that is a kind of personal attack wich other are not being allowed to make & as can be seen from Curts reply he "thinks" he is above everybody in terms of being allowed to make such comments.
    Before anybody starts I am not defending DS at all but the principle that if the Staff of RBW want us to play fair then they have set an good example to start with. I also have nothing against light hearted banter .
    As you say lets all try to get along.

    I never attacked your revo. It can break itself without my help.
