Accusing and fighting each other. Yep, that makes a newbie want to stay doesn't it? Accusing one member of having a fake profile, some lame troll with fake profile after fake profile, going through blogs leaving (or trying to leave) ugly comments. Yeah, really makes us look friendly huh?

Or, we're posting the occasional political blog calling each other names when we don't happen to agree with the others view point. Sometimes in my own opinion, some of the opinions are over the top, border on hysterical, but, we're entitled to our opinions, doesn't mean we should all agree. But I don't think we should be calling each other names over it. Kinda looks childish with the name calling when one sits back and reads back. Yeah, I know, I've done my fair share of it, I acknowledge that, and I sure as hell don't deny it.

So, when I look at the blogs, and I see the political bickering, or the copy and paste of jokes, I wonder: "What does this have to do with dating?". Actually, it does fit in. It gives people a perspective of how another thinks and feels. It is showing what that person is interested in. To some people, politics are important, it's what they live and breath. Nothing wrong with them being aware of what is going on in their country and sharing their views. Personally, I could do without the tags of one party or the other being "evil" or "communist", but, hey, it's that person's view. There is no rule saying we have to tell that person they are wrong. Maybe they aren't. And maybe you aren't. What works for one person doesn't necessarily work for the other.

There is a saying, "first impressions count". To the new person wandering in, taking a look at the first page of blogs here, it's no wonder they probably run screaming to other sites. I'd like to be able to say it's not all that bad, but, unfortunately, it is. And all of us have been guilty at some time of contributing to this. We have let our tempers get the better of us. We have let annoyances get under our skin and have reacted. For the most part, I've done my best to ignore some of the insanity that goes on. Sure, I've not always been successful, I can admit to that.

Yeah, first impressions are a lasting one.

I don't think AMD has been an actual dating site since I have been a member here, I see the political bickering on here as a symptom of the age group on the site, We get older and less tolerant of what we see as what is wrong in this country and less likely to keep our opinions to ourselves. We are a product of our era, Now some of us are to the left and some are to the right and that is ok, However I agree it does cross the line when the name calling starts, There are some on here who are less tolerant of opposing views than others then there are some of us who like to just like to kick the anthill every once in a while to make sure we do not need to lay a wreath on the site and just walk away,

It would be nice though if we could keep discussions on here somewhat current in nature though, The newbies who happen to wander in probably think this is a site inhabited by old farts who they have nothing in common with and for the most part do not get what we are arguing about because it happened well before they were even born.

This site really does not need a mini version of the cold war going on at any given time, We don't have to talk about dating but it seems we could find something else to discuss sometimes that everyone might find interesting, It is a big world out there and lots of shit happens that has nothing to do with politics.

Just my opinion on the subject as one of the old farts on here,
