Somehow, I'm failing to wrap my mind around the edifying, constructive contribution of your post.
Perhaps you could put it in different wording and I could grasp it.
Nice post OP,
Those words seem to not have meaning to many people these days. It seems the idea now is to force opinion, instead of fact, as fact, as forcefully as possible.
Sad days indeed, that people must feel offended at a conversation or debate.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. -Aristotle
When in doubt: "If you can't say something nice, best to not say anything at all. "
Sadly, many people associate their own emotions with what they read. Rather than looking at it as a monotone dialogue from the other person. Unless people state their "tone", and I'm not sure where people get this idea, text conversations are emotionless, even IF the poster is indeed, in an emotional state. (Thus, this entire post of mine should be read with a clinical flat tone, think "Analytical Spock").
