I'm a pretty thick skinned individual and I don't take a lot of things personal...even when it appears I do...I don't. It's just I respond with
idiocy in kind. I'm a firm believer that respect given is respect earned...and if you're not having fun, then what fun are ya?
Those are my philosophy points, simple right? I've been drug in the dirt and experienced way too much violence in my life to not make a comment in
jest when I feel snarky.
The things I say cannot be that bad considering there are more crass individuals here than myself.
So, to the issue.........
This site under my impression is supposed to foster open minded conversation, granted some of it is verifiable shat on toast, still no matter if you
agree or disagree, ones opinion should not be chastised simply because they don't hold the same moral values, same beliefs, or differ in
understanding when they reply to a thread.
Granted if someone is being genuinely nasty, go nuts. But to blast someone because they don't hold your values......or to cry to a mod because you
didn't receive the response you were looking for (likely because you're retarded wasn't PC) is just as counter productive as the comment you did
not approve of whether it was intended to offend or not.
It is the very basis that many here bitch about when it suits them to do so. You flame others then get butt hurt when you're flamed.
Can we at least agree there is a base line level of personality you have to weed through to understand the point being made even if you do not give it
validity? Hypocrisy with some is rampant in a world that can do with less.
We all have different views, and I'm too old and have seen too much to care about PC or hurting someones feelings. At the very least if you take
issue with another, be adult enough to say hey, that's a little much rather then running home to momma.
Personally if you give it, I'll give it back. Not because I have something vested in your provoking response, but because I find emotionally driven
responses to be lightly hilarious. But that's just me. I have read this board for years before joining because one of the rules of good intel is to
foster avenues of information from multiple sources in order to stay informed about your surroundings. For me it was force of habit. I joined because
most of you are genuine in your convictions and possess passion about what you stand for. Thats missing in most of America today unfortunately.
You may not like me but I am fair. And even though I jest, your opinion is yours and no one can take that from you. Trying to burn another because
they have a more simplistic view, or different view is close minded and does nothing to further a thread other than make it sound like high school.
I personally am for no holds barred communication, so if the mods allow, go nuts.
And I have a bag of salt for some of you that may need it to digest what I'm laying down. Hard to believe I defended free speech just to have it
hampered by a closed view or understanding of such...but such as life.
Note: I am not commenting on the usual banter of disagreement that most thread goers give...I'm talking about when things get way too personally
