Unfortunately some people don't know they should change, some say its called ignorance. :-)

ignorance and /or immaturity... At times the school of hard knocks changes us.

It's a combination of the two, I think, NTB.

I think we can all put up with the bad jokes as long as he leaves other posters out of them.
If you’re watching Db hope you take this in the right way.
I don’t believe in changing anyone because we can’t. You do need to reign in the attacks.
If someone can't follow the rules of the site, just shows up to pitch attacks, toss around jokes that are immature at best and insulting at worst, and can't own up to their mistakes when they're called on them, I don't see what benefit they bring to any forum.

Your statement can't be argued with. I think he is very smart and except
for his attacks he could really have a load of great observations.
I don't know how long he could restrain from his usual antics.
I don't have the answer we will have to wait and see.

I've known DB for a very long time, dating back to the old LPGA boards. Overall, he's not a bad guy, just doesn't seem to get the fact that there's a line that shouldn't be crossed.

There's a point where jokes aren't appropriate, and you should never bring another poster's family into the discussion. MoReb, for one, took exception to joke that mentioned his wife, but there was no going back at that point. It's unfortunate, but it's not up to us to try to change his mind.

Hi ya Blue...gee...you make it sound like everything that DangerBob came up with was a "No No"...perhaps there were a few stuff every once in awhile that you mentioned...but then again I ask...

1..Does Everyone on this board FOLLOW every rule of this site to the Tee
2...tell me that NO ONE here "pitches attacks"
3...tell me that no one here "toss around imature Jokes ( and/or sarcasism)
3a...and it doesn't insult someone else
4...and please tell me if there are posters that DO NOT "OWN UP TO THEIR MISTAKES" when you know they should

5...and last of my opinion....if anyone fits any of these above statements of mine...are you saying that these culprits do not bring any Benefit to this forum

right now as I read your post...I see that number #1, #2, #3a, have probably been violated by your latest opinion

just because someone is Not here to defend himself against character slurs does not mean that he shouldn't be defended

sure some of the stuff that Dangerbob did violated Rusty's rules and probably were not called for...but then again...since when has every poster here been perfect....outside of Cougar, I cannot think of a single poster here that has been "Poster-Perfect"

anyway folks...have a good day...see ya

My post specifically didn't mention any names. It was a general statement of board decorum and applies to everyone.
