"Civilized" conversations are not by products of wolf packs...lol!

If you think that you can have a civilized conversation in the
context of a wolf pack, then you are mistaken. I will be happy to
take this conversation up with you at another time in another
context. But there is no mistaking what has occurred in this thread
and I have no respect for it and won't act as if I do. At another
time we can converse by email if you truly have an interest in the
conversation and response.
Please do not try to attribute "holier than thou" to my attitude and
behavior. That attitude and behavior was present and a problem on
the forum before I showed up and will be on the forum long after I no
longer show up. If you are interested in addressing this as a forum
problem, you will have to do a lot more than comment to me about it.
The fact is that there are some fallacies in your statements. But
addressing them when you raised them had nothing to do with the
purpose of my posts. So your posing them at that time here at best
could only have served to take me off point...had I chosen to do
that. I did not and do not.
And you and others need to be careful with that "uncivilized" word.
You don't own what is civilized and what is not and should be careful
how you throw that about. I can converse with you or not and it has
nothing to do with how civilized I am or how civilized you are.
Conversing is my choice. And simply because you may like or may not
like that I do or not converse...when I do or not..my tone or the
tone of anyone else really, gives you little right to throw around
the label "uncivilized." That word has quite an interesting history
as well regarding how it was used, when and related to whom.
But the bottom line is that I am not going to discuss this with you
now because it came up in the midst of this thread. And when
thinking about what is civilized and what is not, consider that the
next time when you join into this sort of discourse on the forum.
What best describes the lack of civilized behavior, 1) choosing not
to continue this with you because I am free and can do that...or 2)
being part of the wolf pack? Perhaps it was not your intent to
become part of that sort of behavior. But it might behoove most of
us to look at the context that our behavior and words exists within.
Regardless of what you have to say or want to say, the context makes
it out of the question at this time.
So, if you can understand that, we will talk another time. If you
cannot understand that, then we won't. And if you want to email me.
