My field of work takes me to some fairly rough places and I deal with a much harsher enviroment than your average person. Words over four letters
are seen as extravagant and unnecesary and a four syllable word gives some of my associates cramps. They are not bad people but it is what it is. I am
actually forced to be more circumspect in my efforts at communication and more thoughtful in my delivery when I am on ATS/BTS because of the rules. I
still get to have my say but it is delivered in a more.....appropriate...... manner.
Some of the issues you are speaking of come from meanness and a one sided way of thinking but most of those people will eventually tire and
leave. The patient and open minded members are more likely to stick with something like ATS/BTS because it is interesting and informative.
Even though I am very irritating to some on here ...in real life I get people down right irate ....some here seem to be so very lost that they are
just about reprobate ...(the new generation of Einsteins ) have no hope ..no direction ...they just exist ..and that makes me sad ..I can actually
feel their hopelessness when they post ...their own intellegence is really all they feel like they have ..*(all they are doing is bragging on their
selves and it really does make them look foolish) and I feel sorry for them .....and maybe that is all they have ..they are missing SOUL though
.......so I try to be nicer to them than anyone I know in real life (because I have not met anyone in real life quite like some people are on ATS)
..they are definately extreme ........
I try and be at my best when posting something are talking to someone,otherwise I'd probably be banned or something,I'm a very amiable person but I
do have my times when I act like a hot headed Cuban,even though I'm a Basque lol,but when people meet me in person they aren't what they
expected,lol at least I look better in real life then on a computer
Perhaps you see them as hopeless and without direction when they actually aren't. Just a thought.
Back on topic with me though, I am exactly the same way in real life as I am on here. I have a big mouth and can't seem to keep it closed when I have
something to say, so I have a problem keeping my fingers off the keys when I come here and see something that I know to be false being touted as truth
or see someone else being attacked for their opinions or for stating facts simply because the attacker doesn't agree.
But I do tend to use nicer language on here than I do in real life, I'm less likely to outright call someone an ass here than if I were face to face
with said ass. I also find it hard to talk with my hands like I usually do since they are so busy typing... Still working on a way to do both, but I
haven't figured that one out yet. I'm open to suggestions there.
To some extent I treat people the same, however, I use a lot more foul language in reality than here.
And, as of late, I notice my patience wearing very thin.
I try to stay off the boards if I feel I'm in no mood to be posting.
Apparently I have a short fuse.
