In reply to: I have no interest in wolf-packs and don't reward them with my time and commentary! posted by Maureen on June 1, 2002 at 16:21:34:Maureen,
i am trying specifically *not* to act as a member of this "wolf pack"
as you call it. I simply wanted to have a conversation with you on
the issues without anybody getting angry or hurt. The key here is to
take everything with a grain of salt, and take nothing personally. We
don't all need to agree on everything, and i believe that we can
discuss our diferences in a calm and mature manner.
The problem with this conversation is that both sides are insisting
that they are right. Nobody is ever 100% right about anything, and we
need to remember that. You have your truths, as does everybody else,
but we all have some degree of wrongness.
One of the reasons that i have not been posting much lately is
because too many of us have a 'holier than thou' attitude, and are no
longer here simply to learn. It's a sad day when we need to worry
about stating our opinions and diferences here, but that day has
come, and it sucks indeed. A disagreement is not always an argument,
which is something that more people need to realize.
If it's not worth your time to have a civilized conversation, i guess
i won't be hearing from you.
