I've seen that sort of post in varous groups through the years, and they
always make me laugh because ov eht pure peevishness. "I don't like what
some of you say so I'm not going to share my toys with *any* of you EVER
My thought is always, "So freakin' what? - I've *somehow* =:-/ managed
to live for 50 years without hearing anything out of that individual, so
why does he or she seem to think I (or anyone else) would or "should"
feel all deproved and sorry and so on because someone says "I don't wan
to play with you, so there!"
IMO, all such people end up doing ios, cutting off their own noses to
spite their own faces, so to speak. It's *their* loss - esp. since, is
somoeone is that dang peevish and hypersensitive, why would I *want* to
bother knowing them? Like, woo-hoo!, they can try to "make" me feel
guilty! Yeah, what a picnic =>:-p
More like, try to make everyone else kiss up to their hypersensitivities.
I totally beleive in being civil, and and treating folks decently, but
I'm not about to throw myself upon some sacrificial pyre just to
Personally, I think some things are in bad taste, and avoid them. OTOH,
if someone else writes something that IMO is in bad taste, I *choose*
whetehr or not to read it and/or comment. I might say, "That IMO is in
bad taste". But it's in no way my place (or desire) to try to tell the
rest of the world how to speak, think, dress, live, ro anything else.
Withing reason, of course - if anyone tries to harm me, I will do my best
to make them realize the error of their ways. But that's hugely
different from getting my britches in an uproar because someone uses
colloquialisms or slang that I personal wouldn't and don't.
Plus, those words don't define a person - we all have certain traits,
habits, and so on, that annoy others, but that does not mean that one
should merely be dismissed - some of the people with whom I *most* enjoy
communicating are people who are quite different from me. To try to
change them would also usually mean eliminating their original thoughts
and the other things I like about them. IOW, in any relationship, even
the very casual ones, you either learn to take the good with the
annoying, or you go get yourself hermetically sealed in plastic...
