Your first response to criticism is that the person must think they are better than you?
LGDB: No I don't think either one of us thinks we're better than the other, I just think you've taken me wrong. Or that we just disagree. It happens.
How painfully adolescent.
LGDB: if you say so
Though i do have to admit, your behavior is making me feel bit better about myself, for doing nothing of note. I suppose you lowering the bar helps with that. Falling tide move boats too after all. THANK YOU!
LGDB: what behavior is that? Again, just general vibes? Otherwise this is a bit gnomic for me. I don't know what we're getting at.
This is not about your politics, or your outlook on life. It is about how poor you are at communicating ideas. I don't know why you stopped developing that part of yourself at 19...or perhaps why you regress online...and I don;t much care.
LGDB: if you don't much care why are we talking about this? Lol Look, I know you're saying that this isn't about the ideas and instead about how I communicate, but I don't think that's very likely. In my experience it usually comes down to not liking when someone who has oppositional ideas than you AND also doesn't treat you with the respect you think you're due. If I had the same attitude but I was pointing it at a political persuasion you found distasteful, I don't think you'd have this "well I never" reaction.
I said my piece in my last post, and have nothing else to add. I left adolescence behind a long time ago, and I am not going to get
into pointless online fights with people who only want to stroke their
own ego (you).
LGDB: So you replied just to say you weren't going to reply? Okay fair. I'm not sure I get it. It's like the argument version of an RSVP perhaps.
LGDB: No the only reason you're responding to this is because you want some kind of last word. "I replied just to tell you not to reply" is just absurd. You know what would probably have been an even more clear way of saying you don't have to reply? Not posting anything. Lol
Also it doesn't matter if "you" read it. It's not a direct message, buddy. Other people CAN read it. That's kind of the point of public messaging.
I hope you grow up, and learn how to share ideas in a meaningful way...but I doubt it.
LGDB: translation: I don't want to have the argument on the merits and would prefer to make it about how you're not sufficiently coddling or you're acting too arrogantly.
Between the two of us and the board, there are some ideas that some people aren't going to peacefully accept no matter how pretty the package, and its a waste of time to dance around it. Even now you're trying to have this silly personal argument while still holding on to some semblance of pointless decorum, and where has it gotten you except right where you started?
