Why can’t we all just get along?

I feel like Pollyanna when I ask this question, but I need to vent. You would think that a group of people, brought together because of a common interest could get along. But nooooooooo… no way and no how! And I’m in the middle.

I am a moderator for a discussion group. Over the years, people have formed alliances and adversaries. I feel like I’m in a really bad “Survivor” episode. And, being someone who detests conflict, and making people mad at me, I was reluctant to do anything about it.

However, today, someone posted something that really set me off, and I fired back. Afterwards, I experienced anxiety and doubt. And, to be honest there was a moment when I was pretty pumped up.

I went to lunch, and when I came back, I expected all sorts of private messages and emails. What did I find? NOTHING… Zilch, nada. NOTHING! I have been asking myself, is that good or bad? At this point, I’m choosing to believe that it is good!
