  •  And you are extremely rude with this comment! (3+ / 0-)

    I haven't yet read what this diary refers to but I do not need to in order to explain to you why your comment it offensive, rude and 'dickish', as Kos would say.

    It might well be about nonsense but saying so invalidates the feelings of the person making the complaint. Invalidating someone's view, feelings or opinions belittles them. You shove them beneath you. Feel like a big honkin' deal now?? Makes you special?

    Made a bunch of people think your an idiot and jerk.

    Better is to acknowledge their feelings. You may even offer what you feel about it but that is all. Let them decide for themselves to agree or disagree. Otherwise, you are just projecting what you want them to feel.

    I am much too liberal to be a Democrat.

    •  I don't agree with much of what you wrote (0+ / 0-)

      However spending some time in this diary made me do some thinking from a different perspective in order to understand some of the unjustified (in my view) reactions. Sometimes it's good to expand your mind for a thought experiment and try to understand why different people are the way they are.
