PSA Forum Quality
I have been a member of the PSA Forums for 17 years. I am not a prolific poster, just recently hitting 500. However, I read it often and have gleaned much knowledge from the members over the years. As I was reading some of the posts recently I came to realize how the professional growth of the participants has evolved over the years. There was a time, probably 8-10 years ago, when things could become very toxic. Opinions were not necessarily appreciated but rather ridiculed and criticized, often becoming sparring matches and threatening. As can often happen, much bravery was shown by individuals who could hide behind their posts.
It seems much of that behavior has disappeared. I suspect that the Moderator stepped in and enforced forum rules But I also believe that many strong members challenged individuals who were toxic and thereby fought for the quality of a healthy and knowledgeable forum.
Just trying to say that as I enter 2019, I appreciate the quality sharing and information that has become the norm for the PSA Forums. Thanks and Happy New Year Collecting to all members!
