  I don't know if it is the season, the economy, the stage of the moon, your wife's PMS or what the He## it is, but there sure has been a lot of bickering, baiting, name calling and being downright disrespectful of fellow members lately. 
  It is easy to read a post, get upset and quickly write a response and fire it off.  all I ask is, please, take time to read your post and ask yourself it that is going to be one of the above before posting it. 
   Some may say "Ya'll just need to get thicker skin".  I say skin thickness has nothing to do with it. Disrespectful is Disrespectful.  Jack

I am saddened by the number of well regarded busnuts who have left this BBS since the new forum started some two and a half years ago.  The vast majority left because of some sort of disagreement with what someone else posted.

I find myself visiting less often since summer due to all of the busnuts that have left or rarely post these days.

The older I get, I am becoming a believer of the effect of the darkening days of the late fall and early winter...

Folks are a little downer, and it shows.

By late February, as more sunshine is out, we get happier, and so do the posts.

Check back in the archives, bickering increases to a peak and then subsides, in some relation to the winter solstice.

Never mind any whack job spiritual stuff, it just stands to reason, we are a daylight powered species, and daylight is at a premium in the northern hemisphere this time of year.

So, civilized ladies and gentlemen, put a little effort into it or Jack will snap!!!

happy coaching!

BW,

You are right, and there is a name for it.  It's called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder

I think that in most cultures you study, you will find that they have some sort of festival of light in the middle of winter.  These holidays could have been created with the purpose of lifting people's spirits when the world seemed darkest.

I like this board.  Generally the side stuff is not out of hand, and the environment is not sterile.  Some "strictly business" boards are on the boring side.
