Good discussion, folks, but a few posts have bordered on personal attacks. Please . . . attack the thought expressed with your counter thought. Do not attack the poster. And, no, smilies do not make every statement OK. If you see a post that violates MC rules, please use the report button at the bottom of every post. And if you think it is a serious violation, use your rep. No member can read who gave them the rep. Since moderators can't see everything, doing those two things are one way you can make make MiceChat a safer and friendlier place.
Thanks for your help!
