Are you hearing yourself? At what point did you think that I could care less about what you think...you don't seem to care less about how you make people feel with your posts! Other people on this forum might bow to Queen Anne when she enters...but it is not me! You think I am personally attacking you...then go back an re-read some of your posts and you will know what "attacking" is! Re-read the one to DA and tell me if that wasn't written in a condescending and pompous way and IMO as a personal attack to either belittle or ridicule her. I can't personally attack you, because I don't know you...and trust me, you would have known if I personally attacked you! I can however comment on the way you address people...on the way your posts read...on how I find them offensive and rude and on how your comments come across to me. I can comment on how your posts make ME feel and how they read to ME.
I know EXACTLY what was said to kassie! It is a combination of the wording and your tone that absolutely ticks me off! What you call "motherly" advice...I call condescending comments and I find them offensive! Who gives you the right to say what she should or shouldn't strive for...eg your "high expectations"...lack of spell checking etc. With a disability like she has...she probably has enough problems in her life without having to worry about your expectations of her. IMO...sure, you might not have said it in words eg "ADHD is no excuse" and that was kelpiemum (I knew it was her saying it and her comment was a reaction to what was said to kassie at that particular time)...but your post sure as hell beamed of that! You might think your comments are "constructive"...I think they are unnecessary and rude. Before you went on "opening an old wound" for Kassie...I told you she had problems. You still went on about "striving for the best...high expactations are good". THAT is what I meant about irrelevant! You still went on about it...dismissing what I had said in a bid to stop another attack on kassie and your post resulting in a post like the one from kelpiemum! With every action there is a reaction. It was the reactions to your post I feared and THAT is why I told you about kassie (just in case you didn't know since you hadn't been here)! Sure...kassie's posts can be difficult to read sometimes, but I think we are all kind of used to them now.
I really don't care what you think of me Anne. I find this interesting...you reacted quite strongly to my post...how do you think other people feel when they read your posts? When they are on the receiving end of your "constructive" critisism?
Me...on a high horse...please, get a grip of yourself! I don't find it necessary to "be better" than other...never have...never will! I am quite comfortable with who I am!
At what point did I say...I don't like you Anne...I think you are a horrible person Anne? How can I possibly say that when I don't know you?!? Now THAT is a person attack! I said...I find your comments rude and the way you address people offensive. I said...your posts reek of self-perceived superiority, but if you can explain to me why that isn't so and why we mere mortals shouldn't see it that way...then I will take it back at that point.
