Howdy Wobbles, the thread warning is kinda rare, and for the most part you will not see it on many threads. The warning message you have quoted above, pretty much explains it. If the thread subject, based off of much previous experience here on FRF, is one that usually causes discourse and/or passionate responses that lead to same .... then it will get the warning label to remind everyone to please be respectful of the site guidelines in order to keep the thread active or it will have to be closed, like the previous ones before it eliciting the same responses.
FRF is a friendly community, that is open to any and all. We are also like a huge family. As with all families, there is sometimes differing opinions on things. That happens, but as long as the discussions remain respectful and on topic, then it's no big deal. We all get along and will see each other at the family reunion campouts.
It's when the discussions aren't respectful and violate the "Play Nice" guideline as well as other ones that have been well established to promote friendly discussions, like you would generally expect around a campfire, that the site team is tasked with moderating/editing/closing to ensure it DOES adhere to the guidelines. This thread warning is part of that.
It has been stated above that perhaps "cabin fever" is a root cause for certain things, and it absolutely can be.
Although I cannot speak for everyone, I sincerely hope that all of us FRF members are in agreement that we have a real good family oriented forum that is helpful, as well as respectful to one another. That is due to the high character/morals of the members here.
