Ive noticed a common trend on CD and its been going on for a while. Often times discussions turn into arguments with a lot of hurt feelings, and a lot of times these hurt feelings could likely have been avoided if people had acted in a different way.
To avoid hurt feelings I have a couple of suggestions, whether or not you take them is up to you.
1)If you are expressing an alternate viewpoint, don’t refer back to what a person expressing the opposing viewpoint said but instead use what YOU know to help you support your point. That way you are less likely to have somebody say " YOU ARE SINGLING ME OUT!"
2)If you are expressing a supporting viewpoint to another person, feel free to reference them. It helps you from repeating and everybody in the bargain feels good!
3)If you are answering a question, answer the question and then leave it. Please don’t drag it on; that isnt pleasant for any of us.
4) If you dislike what somebody is doing, private message them. By picking on them in public you weaken your viewpoint and credibility.
5)Everybody should go reread this thread.
6) Everybody is human. We all have feelings and also we all make mistakes. When you make a mistake, you do what you can to remedy that but you cant go back in time and actually stop the mistake. Its a good thing we can’t too…we learn from mistakes.
If you would like to talk to me about this thread, private message me.
