I saw a whole bunch of squabbling, and put the board into "maintenance mode" with a message of "Everybody just calm down, check your guns at the door, and behave!"

Next time try "don't make me turn this forum around!"

Didn't see it, and I've been on too much today. I guess I've been off a couple of hours, though.

How could I have missed that?

Besides, it may have been more of a tiff than a squabble.
