I agree that on forums like this with members from all over the globe sometimes responses can come off as rude or curt, and sometimes things get lost or sound that way in translation. I wish my German or French was as good as some of the members here are at communicating in English. Another side of the coin that is a little off putting to me personally is when someone posts items for comments or opinions, get some responses and never responds to the thread or thanks others for commenting. I do agree we are adults here and should refrain from juvenile comments and banter even if we disagree about a topic or item. It is good for people to do some research if told an item is bad, and many questions can be answered by simply searching for past posts of similar items.
