This holiday season can we try to be kind to one another? There have been some unkind things being said on here between 3 or more people. If they continue to be unkind to one another, then they will be put in time out until after the holidays. 

Let this be a time of peace and goodwill toward all men (and women) this year. God Bless, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka and seasons greetings to all.

Sorry, John-but any kindness which has to be asked for will never be sincere. It will be appeasement at best. So can all their sorry butts!

Appeasement would be ok.

One person has already quit because of this post. While I feel a loss of a fellow Voice Citizen, I'm ok with it.

Still wishing for a kinder, happier, more appeasing Voice.

Someone quit the Voice because people asked for kindness?


Oh well

No that is not the reason Matt. It's more likely because that when defending oneself from cyber stalking or constantly getting jumped on by other posters for their opinion they are told to ignore the posters but those posters won't let up - EVER.

Everyone, John is right. What's done is now in the past OK? Let it rest please. Let's all move forward as a community with a positive attitude. Smile. Studies show that smiling even when you are upset will improve your mood. Let's show each other kindness in the spirit of what John is asking us all to do. He doesn't have to run this forum, he doesn't have to listen to everyone, but he does. Let us also thank him for the great job he has done for the Voice. Be appreciative to him and the others in the Voice community. Let's finish this year with a smile and begin next year with one too.
