New reply from leglover
<p>Having just joined and both read and perused the forums, I note not just civility, but an elevated level of discourse embedded in an appreciation of language. The Deweyization of our schools, coupled with the loss of any standards for writing, has produced seas of graduates lacking even a functional knowledge of grammar, usage and style. Yet here the comments are eloquent and incisive, expressive in almost a Victorian sense (and it matters not whether I agree). That is refreshing. Communication is a predicate to others' agreeing or disagreeing.</p>

Why is Everyone so Nice?!
<p>After being a member of several websites, one thing which stands out in the conversation in this forum, is how nice everyone is to each other. On all the other d/s websites I have been on, many of the threads are terribly unpleasant. Many members literally take joy in destroying the other. And I have been thinking, why is this website different?</p>
<p>I think the reason is that this website is geared towards 'humble' females. When a female is humble, her feminine qualities best express themselves, qualities such as warmth, support and care. And when a woman expresses herself this way, this tends to bring out the best in the men who are in her social group. This I believe is the reason, why conversation on this website is so pleasant.</p>
