I am sending this PM to you so as not to arose any more furor on the site.
Perhaps I should have sent a private message to Luke. However, I don't think that either of my initial responses to Luke were overbearing. The PM to which I referred was related to a far more volatile exchange than what occurred in the Josh Gordon thread.
My first reply to Luke suggested that his word choice resulted from alcohol consumption. Luke has openly admitted to his penchant for drinking. Other members of this site have made similar observations as mine. "Potty mouth" was pretty mild, in my opinion.
When Luke responded that his was sober he also took a shot at my age. I could not care less about that. But, it suggested to me that he deliberately made his word selection. So, I replied that that was even more disappointing. Again a pretty mild reply as I see it.
Luke had 2 opportunities to express some measure contrition, but, he became even more belligerent after I fully explained my reason for concern.
However, my explanation for my concern was directed to the site membership as a whole. Luke just happened to be the catalyst. I believe that there has been an observable relaxation of forum etiquette that can be discerned in word choice and J-Pegs My explanation quoted Smitty who had expressed his concern over Google's continued sponsorship.
So, please consider this if you give further thought to my remarks in the Josh Gordon thread.
