Subject: [Leica] LUG etiquette

I've just read over all of the posts from the last month (whew!) and I think that what's different about them from times past is the tremendous increase in one-liners and retorts.

I don't think one-liners and retorts, in general, bring value to a group like the LUG. This is not a place for being witty unless you can make your wit be visual or prosaic. Snappy comebacks, 10-word repartee, and wisecracks do not seem to me to be something to encourage here.

It's obvious to me after reading a month worth of LUG in one sitting who the people are that are doing this wisecracking repartee. What's not obvious is whether they know they are doing it. I won't name any names, but I'd like to see this kind of dialog be very much reduced here, if you can. I hope you know who you are.
