But I'm not afraid of responses -- certainly not!
I'll walk into the Vatican and tell the pope off if I think I should do that!
It's not the feisty put downs and what not that bother me.
Actually, at times I'm just as much to blame.
For example I have this habit of being disruptive myself that I am
self-monitoring for. I don't insult people. I don't put them down.
I don't do anything like that.. but what I find myself doing sometimes
is posting up such a storm, that the 'other side' just gives up, and
then the good back and forth shuts down. But even in that sort of
case, the whole forum turns a bit toxic for a while.. people are
afraid of having such a thing happen again any time soon.
I'm highly repentant about the times I have done this.. I hope to
never do it again. No, no mod has ever mentioned this to me,
I'm an adult and try to become a better person every day.
But it's this sort of thing I've noticed far and wide, that has driven
some really good posters silent.
Perhaps this post is a bit of a mea culpa for me!
