Perhaps we need some guidelines on the posting of humorous asides, banter, and occasional "tiffs" between users.
I've sadly irritated a user whose skills I greatly respect, by indulging in an exchange in a particular post that had (I admit) nothing to do with the actual post. However, in my defence, the specimen had been identified, and there was no indelicacy or offensive content.
Since iSPot doesn't have a "message board", this seems acceptable to me, but I have apologised on the post itself.
I've noted that people have been becoming irritated by some recent changes to the site: the quizzes (I keep meaning to try one) and associations in particular. I guess that the sort of people who use the site "seriously" are mostly quite keen on the scientific aspect, and possibly have less tolerance of the occasional flippancy on what they see as an academic resource.
But there needs to be room for us all, I think. Some guidance from On High would be welcome.
