    Moderate Tone & Troll Free

    Melbo, et al,

    I have appreciated the lack of snarkiness and meanness that is so frequently found elsewhere.

    You have done a superb job of setting a tone that encourages participation and not worrying about asking any "dumb/ignorant questions." That is really important; how else is a newbie to improve upon the level of prepper knowledge that they have?

    We cannot all be experts in every single facet of prepping. I am very grateful for the insights that have been thoughtfully shared with me.

    You and your fellow moderators deserve a pat on the back for a job well done. I've often thought so but have held back a bit on offering such feedback so as to avoid looking like an enormous suck-up.

    Thanks again for all of your efforts! Those efforts are bearing really good fruit!

    I read the rules. They're fair without being overbearing and.... they're evidently enforced since I've seen a few mean spirited comments directed at other members go *poof* in the short time I've been here.

    Thank you for maintaining a strong set of guidelines. This is at least the tenth site I've visited, even joined a few just to be disappointed by the over bearing " experts " who want to force their opinions on everyone with little concern for polite discourse and civility. Please keep up the good work.

    Just want to note that SM is BY FAR the most friendly forum I have ever been on. The CoC is very fair, and I believe that the majority of members have good intentions with their posts. Thank you for reinforcing the CoC, as it really keeps SM friendly.
    Acknowledged, or however you spell that.

    [stirpot] My CoC is to treat others as I would be treated and show people respect as though I were talking face to face with them - [respect] It works in life as it does on public forums. I do not spend a lot of time on this forum, so I didn't notice this thread earlier.

    Thanks Melbo and friends for a job well done.
