I'm glad to have seen that

I'd also want to extend the use of hateful names and comments beyond the references to members. When discussing politics, we don't need to use personal attack language directed toward the politicians. That serves no purpose in bolstering one's argument. Rather, it makes one appear foolish...IMO. Hatefulness toward people is a complete waste of time. We can dislike what they do and how they act but everyone is entitled to their own thoughts. I remember it being said by someone who is no longer posting here that the only thing he couldn't tolerate was intolerance. That remark is, itself, a contradiction. I doubt that but a few people have ever achieved that ideal.

The word "attack" sounds so harsh

Why not just discuss or debate? OK...I know that's asking for too much. Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
