Incivility

Context

Believe me, I try hard to be civil. Sometimes, honesty and niceness come into conflict, and, when they do, I try to simply state things truthfully without being colorful. When the original PC trial was begun, it was advertised as a two-month trial. When two months were over, supporters then tried to claim that there needed to be a consensus to turn the trial off, and that "two month trial" did not mean that the trial would end in two months. It took nearly a year to get the two month trial to stop. There's no nice word to discuss such behaviour. Civility doesn't require that anyone not truthfully describe misbehaviour.—Kww(talk) 22:17, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the response. I appreciate your frustration. I still think that pointing it out in that way can be unhelpful to a discussion. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 23:24, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
