From time to time over the years those of us who have enjoyed the benefits of MFO and predecessor FundAlarm have been subjected to conduct from participants which has been divisive, uncivil, and just plain rude.
The current exemplar of such conduct now sees fit to caustically criticize the grammatical construction of David Snowball's monthly commentary. Despite the fact that this poster has amply demonstrated that he is incapable of constructing a post without a misspelling, grammatical error, or typographical error, he now sets himself as the arbiter of Professor Snowball's commentary.
This poster is not entirely without merit. He has occasionally posted interesting and relevant comments, and as long no one dares to disagree with him, he can be reasonably civil. His style is unfortunately similar in many respects to that of someone currently campaigning to be our next president.
This deliberate obnoxiousness evidently appeals to some MFO participants: one, at least, feels that he "add[s] a lot of spice to the proceedings." That may be so, but if the price for such "spice" is a barrage of aggressive incivility and rudeness, it's not worth the cost. In the latest example of such cost, note the current forced closure of Ted's innocuous post announcing David Snowball's monthly commentary. I would suggest that if participation by such a poster is causative of a significant number of such closures, as is the case in this instance, the poster's value to the community is at best questionable.
I recommend that anyone sharing these feelings simply ignore this particular poster, and let him talk to himself. Since he has informed us numerous times that he is superior in every way, that should be no problem for him.
