I try, rather than using the word,"you" to use the word 'one'. I have found that one little word substitution works wonderfully in helping to express UN-agressivly, thoughts which can be taken otherwise all to personally.
As for your hypothetical understanding of the enforcement of the rules and conditions, you will get no argument from me.

isn't it sad to realize you can be honest only because there's no relationship at stake? cold, cold, cold...
I don't know. I am as honest as I can be with people, and I have great relationships with dogs.
something like "the purge" comes down from a centralized authority...
i think it's better when we just "sort ourselves out" (de-centralization of "power")
And I am feeling now, that for me at least, just expressing this in this little corner of the site is relaxing. I wonder about those who spew insults so expertly and freely through inuendo, if maybe it is relaxing for them too.
I think however, that sometimes, a dam of restraint could use a little spillway in order to relieve the pressures of pent up emotions.
