  •  I was going to make a list (23+ / 0-)

    of all my grievances as it pertains to GOS. but thought nah, let it go. At least, I'll try.

    I think what might help is if kossacks go into community diaries of an opposing faction, let's say, and try to interact with them. Maybe an invite would be better, I don't know. Or any other weekly community diary, really.

    I'm a roxer, I'll admit, and I've seen OPOL, and a couple of others, who are regular members of another daily community diary come by the one I frequent. OPOL was also nice enough to T&R my diary about my mother's passing, so I try to reciprocate by reading, and T&R his.

    Another member of that DCD has started coming to our genealogy group. I don't think the group leans heavily towards one faction or another, but the point is I've started to interact with her.

    What I'm trying to say is that I know from experience that it's hard to have an argumentative relationship, for lack of a better term, with someone you've come to know and exchanged pleasantries with. It may not solve all the problems, but it's a start, I think.

    I apologize for my part in it and try to stay away from negative stuff, though I don't always succeed.

    Live your life. Take chances. Be crazy. Don't wait. Because right now is the oldest you've ever been and the youngest you'll be ever again.-- some wise person on the Internets.
