Unhappy It's sad

This forum is special to many of us. Sometimes, it's a lifeline. It really is sad when people argue over the simplest of topics. I doubt that anyone here intends to hurt another by their responses . I just feel like yelling STOP IT!
If you disagree, disagree but do it respectfully (like most here do ) If you don't believe a post, what is forcing you to reply? I'm not trying to be a know it all....I just care deeply about this forum and it's members. I have to follow my own suggestions, also. Just, please , take a breath . Please .. we are all here for different reasons, but they're all valid. If they aren't, the mods will take care of it. Please can't we be more civil?

Maybe nobody has anything further to add?

You're right because first and foremost this is a support forum ... not a debating forum or a clinic. DocJohn has explained that repeatedly. No matter how much we *might* think we're correct, we don't know each other in real life and aren't there to pick up the pieces (or worse).

I know it's hard sometimes. I often have several tabs open, and have on occasion slapped Ctrl+Q then gone for a walk to get some emotional distance.

Thank you Calla lily.

CepheidVariable
Thanks for replying. I was afraid I said something wrong again. I appreciate your comments. You're right, also. Everyone is in a different place and may or may not see "supportive" as the same thing.
Thanks again.

LOL - I dont think you can kill your own thread, technically! Probably what happened is it got pushed to the 2nd page of new posts overnight, since you originally posted it kinda late, so people just didnt see it. I rarely go to page 2 anymore. But i agree. A spoonful of sugar or stevia, please.

I agree with you CallaLily, CepheidVariable, and Unaluna.

I don't have anything pertinent to add...just want to show my support

YouTube

I think the speaker shares some really important truths here. Certainly not easy for any of us humans to think or act the way he suggests but a wonderful goal to work toward!!! When he spoke about "the ultimate slavery" I found it so poignant and valuable.

I also enjoy the humor

I'd love to know what others think. Could we try to live this way on and off PC??

In all fairness, I only saw this thread now. Not because of the site or anything but because of my own life and hadn't popped in to scroll forums. I'm usually scanning posts, newer and unanswered. Chalk it up to timing.

If you find someone being disrespectful or argumentative in what is clearly meant to be an effort to gain emotional support or advice, please report the offending post(s). Thank you!

Only sugar, unaluna. Stevia tastes like ****. Thanks for your response, it made me smile.
