.. interesting post ..<quoted text>
I am referring to personal interaction for the most part. It is the reason I don't post to some, as when the facts are on the table and can not be refuted, it degrades to character assassination as a defense or deflection. At that point, it is best to bow out if possible, and let the peers decide the accuser's character and credibility. This is a forum, and there are little or no rules of engagement. Common decency and respect is the responsibility of the posters. It is best to simply NOT contribute to the uncontrolled emotion. It is sometimes very difficult to avoid.
Most of my life, I have stood up to rabid abuse of those not capable of their own defense, and it has cost me plenty over the years. I despise gangs, extortionists, and thugs. I grew up in Hell- I always sit with my back to a wall, and never "depend" on anyone or anything but myself.
BTW- No offense taken.
There's lots more to it, but I don't wish to elaborate any more.
.. remember your meltdown with Hiding From You? It happens. Someday I'll paint over the spaghetti sauce on my kitchen ceiling ..
.. back to being HL this AM, meltdown over ..
