I'd like to challenge all forum users to assume better about one another.
Maybe it's me getting older and more cynical, but it's my opinion that the forums have gotten more toxic over time, more flaming, less understanding.
Maybe it's me getting nostalgic about the past, but it's my opinion that players in the game have gotten less patient, less helpful, and ruder.
I think that's no good. Please be kinder to each other. Assume others have good intentions rather than ill. Support each other.
I wanted to share with you one of the quotes that has shaped me most and helped ground me in dark times. Please give it some consideration.
"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own."
