    Consider that you may have unnecessarily negated the diarists concerns.

    I happen to agree with your view about DK but I think it is unfair to dismiss the diarist's disappointment with some of the name calling in the running threads.

    I also agree with the diarist that personal attacks degrade the conversation.

    This is the first time that I am sticking my neck out. I been tempted many times lately to call out inflammatory language. I've been afraid of getting slammed.

    To rephrase, I feel your point is valuable but the title is a turn off. I hope that you will take this comment kindly.

    peace

      I worry for you.  This is a difficult place for those who think "What in the world are you talking about" is an insulting personal attack.  

      Be careful out there.

      When extra-terrestrial beings make their first appearance on our planet, and ask for representatives of our species to best exemplify humanity, I'm sending a nurse, a librarian, and a firefighter.

        You say, "I feel really cold."

        I say, "What in the world are you talking about?"

        Am I saying that since I'm not cold you shouldn't feel cold either? Your feelings don't count if they don't align with mine?

        I just wish we could remember that there are human beings behind the User Handle.
        If you knew my history, you wouldn't have to worry. But thanks for your concern.

        I would send artists, musicians and film makers.

        cheers

          ..offer of themselves at great sacrifice, either through learning, health, or life.  Artists, on the other hand, often tend toward egotism.
