I have been on this forum for a while. I use to engage others for a Great debate,I still do, Alot of "others " have left this site for ? Reasons unknown, They brought their knowledge and We all would discuss the topics of the moment and usually We all would come away with knowing more afterwards then prior. It seems to Me that some things are still that way. It also seems that there are more ' new blood ' in the arena then Ever before, that's a Great thing. What I also believe is that the NB people too need and sholud have here at the " Coin Community Forum ", the right to their ways and beliefs. They Should receive ANY knowledge and information that We can help with. The coin collector's of the 60's are a passing breed, IMO, and that said I wish to touch on another topic. The "opinions " being TOLD to one another are seemingly cold and have the sense of this is the way it is and IF not, I am taking My ball and going home Attitude. WHY are people so that way. What ever happened to sharing Our opinions and seeking more knowledge for the better of us all. I KNOW there are massive amounts of experience here, How about We make an exerted effort to tone down the rhetoric and accusations IE that is false, Wrong, Blah, blah, blah................. Knowledge is a wonderful fuse, it lights up the people around us all for the better of the collecting World. I am in no way trying to be rude or obnoxious, I am trying to avoid the need for member's and the Admin's to stop the forcing and apparent rude statments from happening here again. Enjoy the things You all collect with the openmindedness of other people's choices and ways of doing things without the unnessessary rude remarks, Be Well...........

A few of the worst offenders have been removed fairly recently. Tough decisions, but they have to be made. Constant rude and condescending remarks, especially to new members, will get people removed. Doesn't matter how many posts or how long they've been here.

Well said and agree 100%. My policy is that opinions are what they are and if I don't agree, I scroll on by. Glad the admins are proactive in warning/cutting the butt-heads.

We gave literally years of persistent strikes. Dozens of warnings. Some people just have that personality that must push the envelope in whatever they do. I'm sure most everyone has at least one person they know like this.

Don't forget, you don't see 98% of the crap because the Staff removes it quickly. It's easy to say "Oh, they didn't deserve this" when you don't see most of the crap.

While I realized I posted this topic in the wrong place, long after my original post, I also realized the topic will not be addressed here and I will repost the topic under another name where all concerned in the coin collecting passionate world of collectors here will see and reply to the topic, I was originally touching on, Thank You to whoever moved this topic to the " proper " section........ PS, I really feel this forum is a friendly place, I do not wish to see that change anytime soon.....

To be honest, I see little evidence of your complaints. Very difficult to reply to this assertion without specific examples.

Please be specific -

NOT my style. If your interactions here are rude-proof, for You, Then all is fine, for You...... Being a name caller or pointing the finger at people, is not my intention........ My thoughts on this topic are clear, just try to not be rude calling people out for their opinions be wrong?

@mogans dad ...perfect response to coinfrog! He has been very rude to me several times. The last coin I posted was a 1964 Kennedy half and he called it "JUNK" Just not nice.

I've seen several examples of seemingly condescending comments towards other collectors and their finds from numerous people. I will not name names either as I don't want to stir up trouble. I tend to just ignore them and leave a thoughtful comment to the OP instead. That being said, I've also seen a lot of good on the forum and I know that the staff on here as well as the community as a whole tries and succeeds at keeping the place friendly!
Lincoln cents - 2 holes; 1909SVDB/1914D / Jefferson nickels - Done / Roosevelt dimes - Done / Mercury dimes - 2 Holes; 1916D/1921P / Washington quarters - 10 holes /
Kennedy halves - 7 Holes / Buffalo nickels - 10 Holes / V nickels - 7 holes / Shield nickels - 5 Holes
Other works in progress - Barber-SLQ combined / Indian Head cents / 7070 / WLH-Franklin combined

When people ask for an opinion, I just give them an honest one. I don't mean to offend in any way and apologize if I have done so to anyone.

If I used the work "junk" it was simply to denote "junk silver" (a common term for melt value) and nothing more.
