I don't come to Topix to pick a fight, but to show posters how they act toward others. More people need to be kinder to others, instead of thinking that they are of a better or more special cloth.
I could care less what you think of me, but please don't presume you know why I post in Topix forums, you don't.
If you have a question concerning my post, then ask politely and I will respond accordingly.
If you want to throw out a post like that above, I'll consider it that you didn't think before you posted and just pass it by and hopefully next time you will be a little more respectful.
We'll see, huh?
Carry on.
Wow! Very nice. Too bad more posters aren't as respectful as you.

Here? Never.

But please remember to tip your servers in the restaurant, bartenders in the bar, and dancing girls everywhere.

Seriously - the world needs a change, and it all starts with each of us.

Showing kindness maybe hard for some to be part of, but respect shouldn't be a factor.

One can be respectful when they disagree, but for some folks in Topixland think that a disagreement means that they need to promote their perception in a more demanding way - like Goober's want to "step outside".....clueless to respect.

Clueless tot he fact, that no one in Topixland "will step outside" to fight.

DOH!!

It's the little things in life that make us who we are. Some folks just don't get it.

Takes a major provocation to make me disrepectful.

Simple disagreement won't do it.

Oh, he's just one of the homeless nutters. They come in once in a while to get out of the rain.
Don't encourage him, I'll have the kitchen send him up a sammich.

He'll be gone in the morning.

I have a nice little dagger made in Toledo, Spain that I blooded myself. In fact, I blooded it ON myself quite by accident!
Sorry you did that by accident, but now that it's done it's truly a dagger!

Just dropping in to say hello. I have been taking a break from the toxicity of Topix. Lif is too good to spend on Topix.

Yes, they should be blooded.
Back in the day, swords were sometimes forged of the finest steel, then qu*quenched* in blood - the easiest way was to run the red-hot blade into a living body.
That, oddly, works - it's the hemoglobin in the blood. Supplies more oxygen.

Allegedly the finest Japanese swords were tempered using this method; as the story went, the "quenchee" felt honored to be used to create something so fine.

As by the time of the quenching, that sword represented thousands of hours of precision work.....

... and what was that, compared to the life of a slave/unworthy?

.... or so the legends go-- I have no idea if the above is 100% BS or not, just something I came across in my reading.
