On any forum that truly allows open discussion a skirmish here and there is inevitable; it's okay, because it's one of the ways we can all learn from each other and also learn to have more mutual respect for one another. I also think anyone here would agree that clogging up threads with posts bashing people like Casuarina Head doesn't make for meaningful severe weather discussion; it's also a dangerous precedent to needlessly bash people solely for holding dissenting opinions, I might add (respectful disagreement is always fine, of course).Good post, moving forward I'd like to be more middle of the road on threats not leaning towards one way or another and getting offended; wasn't just me that had rebuttals yesterday but on my end I apologize to the staff on this forum and @Casuarina Head for any inconveniences I may have caused; keep posting and don't let previous interactions stall you from your opinion. I challenge everybody to overcome there own bias to there own forecasts and projected outcomes of events to make the forum a better place; a echo chamber is never a good thing and a toxic weather forum in general isn't a good thing for people that are weather enthusiasts.
Speaking of toxic weather forums, imagine if TalkWeather as a whole ended up like that thread on Stormtrack where people who dared question the rating of the 2006 Westminster, TX "F3" were either harassed or literally had their posts removed. I wish I was joking.
