[Callers] Request for civility from the list

In recent weeks, I have begun to notice that some posts lack the usual
supportive comments and suggestions that I have come to enjoy on this
list. Instead, there seems to be more than a hint of "I'm right, you
must be wrong" or "how could you possibly think that......?", and
other negative postings. I include here comments concerning our
approaches/teaching as callers, but also about dancers and dance
More recently, folks have been suggesting that positive phrases will
work better to encourage dancers and make them feel great about
dancing. It would seem logical that we would practice this behavior
with each other! We all have different dance communities and ways that
we have learned to call and teach and dance. I would hope that we
would offer our own experiences as suggestions, or ways that have been
successful in our own dance communities, and avoid denigrating the
experiences or ideas of others.
My thanks to the many on the list who are very aware of the impact of
their posts, and continue to share in such positive ways.
I would so much appreciate again looking forward to all of the emails
generated from this list.
