Drama

;) ;) :eek:

 

I know I'm not always the most tactful person in the world, but why do people have to be rude? And why do they have to perpetuate drama? It frustrates me to see the forum degenerate into name-calling and snide remarks masked in smilies. Delivering an insult with a smile is still an insult, and is often more offensive that way. I understand wanting to have the last word, but you don't always need it. Go vent about it elsewhere. Start a blog. Do whatever you need to do, but work it out. Stop campaigning for your cause, because nobody cares.

 

I don't agree with everyone, and I get my hackles up if I feel insulted (which has happened once, and I did react really harshly.) or protective of a friend, or both. But sometimes just let it go. The forum isn't life or death, and if it is, you really need to see about chilling out.

 

Who am I talking to? That's a good question. (I was just remarking that I hate when people talk like that- rhetorical questions that they immediately answer. I think I saw it on Shark when I mentioned it. Anyway.) If you think I'm talking about you, you probably have good reason to think that, and it's probably true. I'm not talking about one single person, or one single side. Right or wrong, it gets absurd on both sides. Then again, I'm not talking about anyone who is reading my blog, probably.

 

Conflict is a part of life, and how we deal with it says a lot about who we are as people. I'm obviously a little(!!) unbalanced, but I'm trying to work out my flaws there.

 

I don't think people are bad. I just think sometimes you've got to take a step back.

I've been mesmerized by the smilies you've used in this post for about ten minutes now...!

 

I agree, people really just need to step off, back down and get with it. It's just the internet ( I guess, I am not sure to what this post is referring, which sort of makes me glad because that means I was not in on it!) and the internet is no place for drama. Save it for the people in real life who deserve it!

Or take a cue from my tactics - seethe inwardly, build up some healthy pent up rage and take it shopping! Whoo hoo!

I realized that I wasn't taking my own advice, and almost sheepishly erased this post. But, eh, it gives me perspective! It was prompted by something, obviously, but really it's about drama I see everywhere.

 

I like your philosophy, too!
