  • Thoughts from a drunk guy

    just say you have an issue you feel very strongly about,

    do you attack with a very strong opinion and tell it like it is, or

    do you try to get your point across in a civil manner?

    if some one attacks your way of thinking with an aggressive tone, how do you react to it?
    are you hearing what their saying? or just the aggression

    if someone tries to explain there thought in a civil manner, are you more up to listening to what they have to say?

    l'm just learning how to communicate, lol, only took me 50 years and still learning.

    anyways, just thinking out loud............hiccup

    cheers

    Eff, I can take it either way. As well, I do both when responding. If the person isn't listening (you). It may get louder or appear more aggressive in tone. However, once my piece has been stated. It is over for me. Apparently, not you however. Respect is everything for me and if not for you. GL to ya. It's that easy. I may have blown up and real friends may try to look past that at some point. However, it doesn't matter to me either way. I can pick with whom I converse. As can you. The end result is what is of importance. To me anyhow!

        One thing I will tell everyone is that the written word has a way of being mis-toned. That is, there is no inflection from the voice. What is clear and calm to one, another will interpret as bombastic. It is something I can attest to as common. One must choose their words with care when writing online. It still surprises me how something innocent can become a clash of cultures.

              JT, l have tried to explain to you via our pm's, but since you are putting this drama in open forum,

              it was you that said l was not a man of my word, how was l to take that?

              it was you that said our group was up to something in the open forum,
              how were we to take that?

              you carry on, l'm done

                    Eff regardless of what the underlying purpose of this thread is I'll throw a penny in, its my last month, and as always I'll try to respond with a straight bat.

                    I would always advocate civility, the raising of voices and anger of tone usually indicates a lack of strength in the point being made.

                    Take on board what has been said in opposition and respond civily where necessary to flaws in the argument being offered, if the response corrects you then accept gracefully, if the response is lirrational and lacks substance any further reply will prompt only further similar responses and end up in circular arguments that lead nowhere. I could link but won't.

                    At this point back away quietly, don't think that you always have to have the last word, a battle of wits with unarmed opponents is a futile battle, be comfortable in the knowledge that no point was made to disprove your position and that the the last point made, whilst being the final word was unsubstantiated.

                    The adversery, if they chose to be so, may walk away with chest puffed out but this will never detract from the facts and if they are wrong they will always remain wrong and more fool them for being ignorant of the fact to boot.

                        l'm not sure l fully understand to what you are saying here, l'm a simple man with a very bad past trying to see a different way, l'm in the learning stages of how to communicate without taking your head off, l know one thing so far, when to walk away, well almost, l did say l'm still in the learning process,

                          basically what he is saying is when dealing with an idiot, who has an opposite view from you to state your case listen to the reply and if they are still an idiot walk awayumbup: because arguing will just escalate the matter into the ridiculous umbup:
