I think it is as good as can be expected online. Although I'll admit it does become easier to talk trash online rather than in person. I try my best to not be offensive, but sometimes some of my comments, questions, and answers may offend some.
The one downside to being online is not being able to convey what is truly a joke, and what may be mistaken for seriousness.

That is what I have found to be true my friend...........I think may be sometimes one should read the question twice before one tries to answer it.......some members are quick to strike on certain subjects...........

As for the people I have had contact with, I'd say the netiquette is pretty good, but overall, maybe not so much.

I was talking about the concept of netiquette in general , and not about anything that can be measured with a yard stick.

I know the answer to that question Socrates a yardstick is 3 feet long if you hold it at your side, if you lay it on the floor I'm not sure of it's size then. OK I gotta check my points and see if I jumped up ten. Safarii, you are just as stupid as are we all who patronize this intelligence insulting site. We are all being led to the land of the mindless.

I agree with Yarnlady...because of the youngsters. If anyone knows of a good site where I can converse with only adults who do not constantly refer to sex and these adults actually have a brain and like to discuss ideas, concepts, theories and things, please advise!!

The closest thing I have found so far is Fluther.com and it isn't perfect.

Can u believe that I just received an e-mail saying that the above answer was disapproved. I am pasting it here again. What a silly board. I am getting really fed up with their ignorance.

As it's a moderated site, there are no flame wars, but the level of questions is largely poor, which is perhaps a different matter from netiquette as such.

Considering the user base here I will say overall netiquette(or whatever) is OK to bear with in comparison to other such big sites on the worldwide web.

I believe that this site was originally created for the teens and tweeners. The way it is monitored and administered shows that it is not a place where you can as you say "discuss ideas, concepts, theories and things." If it were meant for serious minded folks, we would not allow ourselves to be subjected to this type of "Big Brother" overseering. We should be insulted being treated as if we we back in primary school. I feel when I answer a question properly, I get a gold star and if I should say something a little off I get a letter of disapproval which I should take home to Mommy. If you are looking for that place where you can "discuss ideas,concepts, theories and things," I suggest a group therapy session given at a local Hospice facility." I imagine that is a place where seriousness reigns supreme and the if the discussions become too adversarial, don't be perturbed your opponent may be gone within the hour.

Not very, this site allows children, and therefore netiquette is not very high on their list.

It's pretty good overall. Occasionally, you'll get jerks like me trying to incense people, but I try to only do that when it's funny.

It is pretty good, barring some bad wolfs out there trying to incite hatred among Blurters.
