It is a public forum, anyone can butt in. That is the nature of the internet.

Well on public posts like this one, if someone wants to give an opinion it's their right and I'm fine with it, always happy to hear others opinions, even if they think I'm wrong and want to politely correct me. But on the rare occasion when someone interupts and is judgemental and angry without knowing all the discussion that has previously gone on.. well that's just annoying and they'll probably get a sarcastic or dismissive response.

Find any political post that i make a comment on. "Full of shit" in so many words.
There is a certain woman that will find a way to jump and tell me i am an ill informed, pussy hat wearing, ignorant liberal. And a particular guy that wished me dead. (That was a while ago).

It's alright. It is an opinion site after all.

I am simply saying if one truly desires a "one-on-one" convo, the place for that is in a PM. Open forum, by its very definition, invites others to join in. That is not an intrusion if the convo takes place in an open forum. It's just not.

Sometimes a person can get drawn into a serious convo in forum by accident.

It can just snowball hypnotically so you don't think - or get a chance - to take it to PM. Hard to believe you haven't experienced that.

Um...but we ALL have to follow Amirite's rules of Internet Etiquette. And that works for me.

And I'm pretty certain that Amirite frowns on ganging up on someone.

"Snowball hypnotically"??? Wow. Nope, Sukie, it is the internet and no one is put on the spot, everyone decides when (or if) to reply. Moving a convo to PM is not rocket science.

Yep. Obviously it does not work for you, as you are constantly trying to enforce your own protcol upon us.

I'm pretty certain that cannot happen in PM.

I kind of just know when it's ok for me to intervene and when it seems like an awkward moment for me to butt in. (think) I assume others get the same feeling though I maybe wrong.

ie if I'm having a Cosy chat with someone I may not want someone interfering but if I'm mucking about or having a heated debate it's the more the merrier.
