Over the last couple of years I have had quite a few disagreements with other members, and some of those disagreements turned into public battles. Then, one of us would pm the other, and most of the time we would find out that it was just a misunderstanding, and then everything would be ok.... Kind of..... The problem with that is that when that happens, you can't just simply take back a whole public arguement. Of course, you can edit your post, but most of the time, by that point everyone has already seen what you said anyways, or someone has quoted your comments, so they are still visible. So why not just cut out all of the public arguing, and if you see something someone says, and think it's about you, or it just offends you, then you can pm them to resolve the issue. This way, we can avoid alot of public battles.
