Forums are nothing new!

Forums have been around at least since life began on earth. It is only the participants and venues that have changed.

Trolling and Hijacking are things you will see in everyday verbal conversation frequently if you pay attention. There is nearly always someone present who finds the subjects of their thoughts more interesting than what is presently being discussed.

There are also usually people around (like me) who find it amusing to get others' goats. I take pride in the size of my ill gotten goat herd.

These things are basic components in the hindrance of evolution of information exchange.

Passion comes in many forms and for many reasons. Sometimes the topic is more near and dear. Would it be helpful to have the ability to go back into the Forum after the "EDIT/DELETE" timer has run out and still have the ability to "DELETE" after figuring out, Hmm, I wish I would have said that differently? Disagreement is optional, being disagreeable could be modified with EDIT/DELETE as a constant feature and without having to ask a Moderator to do so.

This forum is very mild and well-mannered. This is especially evident compared to the motorcycle forums I also visit, which seem to have a propensity for discord, bad behavior and trolling.

I suggest making more use of the "preview post" feature, and actually reading what one wrote before submitting it.

And keeping some Tabasco® sauce on hand just in case you have to eat crow, as I have been forced to do in the past when a post I wrote was interpreted in a manner other than the one I intended. An apology by PM goes a long way. A public apology in the thread where the offense was given— so everyone can see it— goes even farther.

Unlimited time on the edit/delete function runs into a problem as soon as someone responds to a post, especially if they quote your post in their reply. You can't fix things retroactively without making a hash of the cause-and-effect flow of the thread. Fortunately, between previewing what we write before posting, and apologizing after if necessary, the edit/delete function is not our only way of policing ourselves.

I agree 100%. I participate in some forums that have no time limit on edit or delete. I have not seen it create a problem. I am a lousy proof reader, often seeing what I meant rather than what I typed. I would like to have more time to correct those fumble-fingered mistakes that detract from what I intended to convey. I also have typed things and later realized that perhaps they were not appropriate. I would prefer just to get rid of them, rather than having to find a moderator and enter the confession booth.

Alan, I am kinda glad that you brought this up.

If at any time, I annoy anyone, please bring it to my attention. I am aware that forums and social media serve a different function for different folks.

I was called a " troll " in a very dismissive manner, during a particular discussion. In my defense, to me it was a safety issue that I feel very strongly about. And I feel an obligation to give equal info on both sides of the fence.

To be clear…My feelings are that, disagreeing with someone is not trolling. Correct me if you think that I am wrong.

I just want to apologize in case I've been guilty of either. I don't think I troll (those people are annoying but entertaining) but I'm sure I've hijacked a thread. I'm relatively new to this site (been RV'ing forever but never came across a Bounder forum and didn't realize until I found this site that my Avion counted as a "vintage kin"...well as far as 1998 is vintage. But I have Aspergers Syndrome so I don't have the best social skills (even online) but it's definitely a lot easier on here than it is in the real world. Aspies (as we're called) are known to be obsessive about things (I'm not like the norm) but it wasn't until recently I was informed by everyone who knows me that I might have a tad obsession with RV's (and boats) but I just love it. I've loved RV's and especially Airstreams since I was two...and was a Class A fanatic born into a trailering family. I love them so much I bought my first Class A before I bought a car! Anyways, just wanna say sorry for hijacking convos and if someone thinks I've been a troll I probably wasn't aware. Just message me and let me know like I ask everyone in the real world to do when I'm being my usual dense self....

But I love this site! Every question I've had about my Moho has always been answered (shout out to MasseyFam for definitely responding the most) And I just think that Airstreamer's are the coolest RV'ers out there. Hence the petition I seriously want to make to send to Airstream corporate to PLEASE bring back their Class A diesel's!! OK, yah even I realized that was a hijack but y'all are awesome. Happy Trails!!

You are not wrong, unless you do it simply to get a reaction. To me that is different than disagreeing even though you know you may a reaction, as long as you feel your point is relevant to the subject.

First rule of trolls: If you're worried that you might be one, you're not.

Second rule of trolls: Don't feed the troll.

Disagreement is not trolling, particularly when it is adding to the balance and/or understanding of the topic at hand.

We all have seen the occurrence where someone states their opinion as fact and they are simply misinformed. If the different view or statement of the facts is presented in a respectful way, this becomes very valuable to the those reading the board looking for advice and information.
