This is CR4: Be excellent to each other

06/16/2019 12:00 AM

In recent weeks we’ve talked about eliminating political discussions, reporting things to moderators and also rating threads and comments.

If executed, this will all lead to a more positive, collaborative community. The internet is a cesspool of snark, trolls, egos and cynicism. CR4 will not become a habitat for this general internet toxicity.

But that means users need to consider how they interact with each other. As corny as it sounds, invoke the golden rule. If you are not looking for an argument, do not be argumentative.

This means you may sometimes need to let a sideways comment go, or ignore someone who is trying to bait you into an argument. This also means not giving cynical answers or purposefully unhelpful replies to users, especially new ones who might not be up to speed on CR4 etiquette and quirks. If you feel a user is too antagonistic or offensive, please remember to report them.

To quote former queen Savvy, “Please remember to be courteous to one another on the forum. If the only response you can formulate is a nasty one, don't post a reply.”

It is a bit hard to define my message any further than “be nice to each other,” but that is the gist.

My parents taught me: "If you can't say something nice, Then don't say anything at all."

I have tried to follow that concept, and the Golden Rule, for over 70 years, and will continue to do so as long as my mind is clear.

Indeed, quite true.

Courtesy will solve several issues, and the say goes "united we stand, devided we fall" and synergy/synergetics effect will increase.

During my college days, our Professor taught 1+1 = 2 this is in Mathematics but for Human Effort with combined effort 1+1 is greater than 2.

Most impressed in the theme.. As much as we may have reason to think we are right... History has often proved that there other sides or interpretations to a point or problem.. I feel it is interesting to hear the other side or interpretation of a situation. I do not want to be found to have made an incorrect or unwise assessment. The more inputs to consider the greater the possibility of coming to a fair conclusion.

Of course this doesn't mean the fun needs to stop!

We are trying to create a more welcoming and collaborative CR4, which requires some attitude fine tuning while interacting with each other.
