NO NO NO OMG! Commodes put out an aerosol mist replete with their 'inhabitants' up to 4' from the source! Flushing is the LAST thing I do in a foreign throne room, usually with my foot, on my way OUT the door.

Many left and I do believe it had much to do with the lack of ...
Posting Etiquette. People aren't going to keep coming out
and subject themselves to some of what goes on out here.

It is unnerving that the art of trolling exists that causes a loss of posing etiquette. SMH at how litigative some posters are but of course they are behind the screen which is circumvented by an ISP and a web server. So they pose no physical threat but make folks miserable and not want to partake in a form of social interaction which can be interesting. Sorry to hear that posters left. I was about to leave one time because of a taunter on a sports forum. I gave everyone on that forum a big 'fuck you'.

Afterwards, I realized that I lost control and let someone possess it in return. That's 'ugly pride' at work. So I had to switch the game up a bit: embrace a forum adversary as a participant of discretionary dialogue. We choose our battles, not vice-versa.

For this is a highly dynamic medium. At least it's guaranteed to be more authentic, than for instance, the work of a Reuters editor. Hope those posters return.

LOL.
I do the flush with the foot tactic too.
Another eerie deal in public rest rooms is the toilet paper itself.

Scenario: So here we have an employee who has 3 of those humongous rolls of shit sheets as 2 go in the rollers while the third, within time, is dropped on the floor, kicked around, infiltrated by six legged creatures and replaces one of the two on the rollers.

Yuck!
C'mon! It's just like napkins for the exit sign side too!

What really makes me shake my head is people responding with personal attacks instead of logical reasons for showing why they think a poster is wrong. All the personal attacks do is show how witty one can be (in some cases). They hardly disprove what a poster posted.

While we don't agree on a lot of things, I must second what you said there. Here are some of the ways people on here disagree rather than using logic or even a passionate or ethical appeal:

1. Accuse the poster of being other posters. So what if they are? Why is that a big deal, and what makes that relevant to the discussion? Some use this tactic as a weapon.

2. Bring up the past or unrelated content from other threads to metaphorically beat others over the head.

3. Attacking someone for the jokes they make rather than either overlooking them or attempting to educate as to why the joke is inappropriate or offensive.

4. Accusing them of having some negative emotion or character flaw. That is not the other poster's business and is irrelevant to the current issue.

5. Accusations of insanity. It doesn't matter if you think the other person is crazy. That adds nothing to the topic.

6. Libelous statements, such as calling someone a rapist, child molester, drug user, dealer, etc., unless of course there is documented proof or a criminal conviction in a court of law. That is someone who either cannot dish it out or cannot admit defeat.

7. Insults that denigrate an entire group of people or attack the poster for belonging to such a group. That includes racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic comments.

8. Intellectual-based bashing, arrogance, and snobby comments. Those comments only attack the other person's IQ and has nothing to add to the current topic.

9. Carrying grudges, continued harassment, stalking behaviors, etc. That is often the person who feels defeated and has to bring others down because they cannot admit defeat or don't have what it takes for a rematch.

'or don't have what it takes for a rematch.'

What many do have is the common sense to walk away from this vitriolic Toxic dump known as Topix.
