Vent 1 (v nt) N. 1. To express (one's thoughts or feelings,
for example), especially forcefully.
When we look back at
the definition of “vent” as it was created on GB’s 912 project, it
embraced a willingness to permit any person to scream, yell, rant,
rave, cry, bemoan, criticize, and wail – yet at the same time
granted every participant the permission to learn from one another.
Feel free to use this forum as an avenue of expression for your
thoughts, opinions, ideas and feelings. While we believe in the
right for one to speak one's mind without fear, recall that this is
a public forum. Therefore, be civil and refrain from using
. We are working to open vent to all those who choose
to opine freely, and encourage everyone here to embrace the basic
concept that, while all opinions are welcome – no opinions are
monitored or fact checked.
It will be left up to each
individual to select their words wisely and to do their best to
permit every poster on this forum the latitude to ‘vent’. Common
sense is a virtue most of us received from our elders as a guidance
tool, so before you fire off that comment to defend or refute a
position of a fellow poster, take a deep breath and realize that
everyone can learn something from a disagreement if it is well
thought out and properly presented. In the grand scheme of
things, we are all human and bleed red, and while we may not agree
on each point, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
