    I do know what you mean though. For a while you feel like you should go back over every sentence you type again...and again...and again...(I'm on a roll) to make sure you haven't written one word that people are going to get up in arms about etc. I know I did. But I'm inherantly too lazy to do that all the time, so hope if I cause a problem for anyone I can attempt to fix it or iron it out quick smart.

    I think because it's a forum doezsn't, or shouldn't make a difference. I can disagree with people about anything, anywhere, but rudeness would not be tolerated, nor would name-calling, verbal abuse or anything else unacceptable. What's the difference here?

    God I'm rambling.

    Ramble all you want! It's posters like you who make it all worth while!!!!

    And i agree with your comments I've highlighted in blue!

    Why then, does it seem, that it is ok for some people to use personal attacks? I have been abused by a number of members here when I have disagreed with them - when I have called their ideas stupid, they have called me stupid, when I have suggested they are ignorant of the facts, they have called me a bitch.

    I try to avoid personal attacks and try to make comments about actions and behaviours rather than personalities - but it seems fine for others to make personal comments about me?

    How is that justifiable?

    My daughter has a tough, rough teacher, but atleast she shows my daughter respect, and in return, my daughter respects her back.

    Um, actually, that's probably NOT a cartoon image. More like real-life.

    At least you admit that you're one of those people...some wouldn't - good for you.

    Man - if I'm not careful I will only see Choppa's and DA's posts


    ETA: What a disgrace to give false sympathy to someone when their dog dies as a way of trying to get on with them. My dogs were worth more than empty platitudes - if you don't believe in it, don't say. I am thoroughly disgusted - then again I did say dishonesty was one of my peeves
    Oh, get over yourself Occy!

    I was also one that expressed my sympathies after you lost your dogs. They weren't false! I did feel sad for you just like I did for other members who lost their dogs. I know what it's like and how horrible it feels and If i didn't mean it, I wouldn't be saying it.
    Yes, we've had our blues (a long time ago). Get over it! I did! and I was the one being attacked by you. I don't hate you, and no I don't think you're brilliant either. If anything, I find you amusing at times and intriguing at others. I often wonder what makes a person so bitter and into themselevs but like I said, I don't dwell on it. I was happy to leave our past issues where they belong. In the past.
