Subject: I'm not talking about when you are being a racist....

I'm talking about when you are tearing apart others which you say you dont do unless they do it to you first....so there really isnt anything to worry about.

and politcally correct or not(you do ues the pharse a lot) one can most certainly be a racist and not know it...but that is not even a subject that was in this thread until you pulled that up from another thread way, way back....

I'm re posting my first post to this thread...then I will say no more about it.
You may have the last word on this thread.

Subject: sometimes you need to listen to others
In reply to: Bee 's message, "You are sadly mistaken about ripping apart everything" on 15:32:35 03/29/05 Tue

"Jean posts"

? What are you talking about?

"You know, I was actually supportive of your efforts to oppose a draft. Not any more."

So you are no longer going to oppose the draft because you are mad at her?
Wow! Thats a grownup thing to do.

The problem is that you just do not know how to deal with people. There have been a good deal of people on all kinds of boards(and wards) who have told you that you have a problem in the way you deal with people. Sometimes it doesnt hurt to listen when that many people all tell you the same thing. You know you can debate an issue without getting nasty about it.

The board was fun and interesting with many of us learning a lot from each other even if we didnt agree. Since Cricket or Bee has been on most everyone has gone on to other boards.

Look over your post to peoples posts. You do rip about people if you dont agree with them. There is a way to disagree without being disagreeable.

I'm sorry it has to come to this


Bee...have you noticed that no one is here debating much any more?...but yet those who were on here have gone to another board(s) and they can debate without getting mean spirited. others who use to be on this board a lot....they do NOT agree with each other on many many many things yet they are able to debate, get their message across and yet remain friends and remain respectful(that may be that most use their true self and not a pretend self, not a fake persona)
Its a skill that not many in the world have any more and a wonderful skill to have or to develop.
....do they get their feathers ruffled at times? Yep..cant discuss politics without that happening sometimes but the trick is is to be repectful of the other persons views...yes you can point out what you dont agree with but there is a trick to do it...it is a hard one to master. One has to work at it all the time and most of us will never compleatly master it in this life time.

I'm done with this.
We are never going to see eye to eye.
