Give me a break! Now I am accused of being inflammatory because I am being polite!?
If anyone took offence coz they thought I was being too polite - and I don’t believe anyone did - then I would wager they were already fully-primed to blow
But it does help to illuminate a point: for whatever reason - some people are hair-trigger sensitive to any perceived sense of personal injustice and as previous posters have pointed out, that’s how a lot of these problems start
So how can we dial that down?
There has been lots of talk about people “respecting divergent positions” - ok - great - but now you’ve got a 'real live one’!
I am the aforementioned ‘divergent position’ - disagreeing with some points, as you do, as a divergent, but doing it politely and not abusing anyone. Other points I am actively agreeing with
I want the discussion to be constructive. This is a chance to see if we can’t move the needle forward on human interaction within cyberspace - at least amongst users of Forumosa
