The problem is that you just do not know how to deal with people.

Jean, we each have different styles. I wonder that my own is more akin to yours. So what... Better that I assume personal responsibility for how I read and how I may learn to communicate effectively. IMO.

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.

Well, if we're walking toward talking about truth from numbers then you'd be Catholic and not LDS. Right? ;-)

Sometimes it doesnt hurt to listen when that many people all tell you the same thing.

See above. Once again smiling for my Catholic husband (insert smile, Jean).

You know you can debate an issue without getting nasty about it.

Absolutely. And one of these days I'll be working on it. :D

Until that time, I like that, "a man sees what he wants to see and disregards the rest." And in my imperfect state I'll be okay to disagree with the numbers of times in this one post above that you've taken Bee to task for how many people say this or that or yada-yada-blah-blah-blah.

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.

When I no longer fully appreciate a board or have something to add, I'll catch another train and move on. If someone else encountered the board and found it didn't fit their needs or likings...let us wish they may travel well into other places. For those who leave, temporarily, and may need a break, I understand. I am that person. That's perfectly okay and a wise choice.

Me, I ain't for a minute skeered of anyone here. Some days I rest and wait; some days my life is filled with life and I recognize I'm lax to get back to answer responses. I forgive myself very easily.

In sum, my best approach to boards is to leave yesterday where it rested, to start anew with every day. Holding onto stuff is detrimental to my posture because I'm quite tall, and love wearing heels without carrying the extra weight...

It's all good and we're all good: every one, and everyone. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
