Well well people things seem to be getting a bit nasty in here so I thought it might be an idea to remind everyone what the meaning of the word community is:

Similarity or identity: a community of interests.
Sharing, participation, and fellowship.

I got this entry from Dictionary.com, if you would like to read the complete entry please do: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=community

Perhaps instead of getting bitchy when someone says "hey I've made this other community" we could try: "cool, now I can be part of another community" or even "no thanks, I've had a look but I'm going to give it a miss this time." And when someone says that the community is being neglected instead of writing a catty comment we might consider why it's happening. I mean really I can't say I want to put in posts when all I expect in response is some sort of nasty comment, or to just be ignored all together. Remember that since you are writing there is no tone of voice & things can easily be misinterpreted. A good community is caring & supportive so before you write a comment to someone's post please make sure you consider their feelings.
