I find it interesting that a moderator is participating in posts that are specifically attacking someone's character. Is this common practice here? I also find it interesting that "Knowing how young the poster is" The "Mature" magicians are stooping to the same level in demeaning and attacking said poster. It is disgusting and sad, and if you are the mature professional magicians you portray, you should be ashamed of your behavior.
Well when you tried logical reasoning, common sense, maturity, and pretty much everything else; what is left?
Walking a diferent road, by letting it go, and understanding and showing maturity by not "Having" to respond. Silence would have been the appropriate response.
There is NEVER an excuse for mature and proffesional magicians to insult people's family, or an individual (Regardless of what the other person has said). What they have said is not an excuse to stoop to the same level. It is the old excuse "They started it." The internet is so anonymous, it makes this easy to do, but imagine the same scenario in a real live situation. A young person at your show starts insulting you. Walking away would be the appropriate response. You would not start to insult him or his family at the show. This forum is also a stage. People are watching and weighing how we act and especially how we treat others. If I was a Mod, a ban button would be hitting a lot of you. You are making professional magicians seem like fragile whiners. Let's toughen up and lead by example.
