It was a ruse for him to remove all his neighbors' racist lawn jockey statues. He'll be found buried under one of the snow banks he made come this spring.

I'm always amazed to hear the abuse many family/neighborly folks received after reaching out to others. Often it makes some wish not to offer anymore ... so,

Many good tidings for being appreciative of others kind hearts. We should give when we are able.

Now I'm really confused by you. they didn't ask for his help. So shouldn't his helping them be immoral? You're always going off about unsolicited help being a personal attack.

Why would you be confused? Each person is supposed to treat each thread in a vacuum and never carry what was said elsewhere. So which post did I leave in this thread before that one that gave you any back ground information in order to be confused? I refuse to respond to anything that is prompted by anything said elsewhere. People are supposed to post, get it out, and everyone is supposed to forget it forever and move on. Dwelling on the past can be a sign of emotional immaturity, and I am only just saying, not accusing nor trying to start anything.

I tend to consider it wrong to try to "get to know others" (a type of control over them) or to carry a person's words past whatever thread they said them in, since that is attempting to control them by tying them to the past and not letting them change and grow. The correct thing to do is each time you encounter someone, treat them like you are meeting them the first time. Everything I say in other threads are specific to those. It is just like on the street. If you meet someone in one place and get to know them there, it is specific to that place. Then you are supposed to forget the encounter and move on. If they speak to you again, then you would start over. That allows them to change and be a different person each time you meet them. So if you meet someone outside their house and at a store, you are supposed to start from ground zero in each place if you do decide to get to know them. You have to start from scratch in each role. It is impossible to truly know anyone as they change with time, often with the minute and are never the same person you were around before.

I also consider it wrong for a women to debate anything. Discuss, share, or vent, but never debate. Now, we can expect men to do that, and that is as far as I am going in that direction. Yes, I fully support separate gender roles and expectations, and I don't believe the social construct nonsense of the feminists, though I do agree with them in some other ways.

I can't completely agree with that idea purple, oops, I mean spotted girl. I love to make inane and obscure references to posts past and articles of yore. I often do so, and some of us get the inside joke. For example: He was just making up for crawling naked into a dead horse carcass with his girlfriend.
