Look, I get that I make strong statement. I don't know why I wouldn't. If I don't believe in what I am saying, why should I say it? Why should anyone?
Well, from prior posts it was clear that I was talking about both (hence discussion of condescension).
I'm saying there are more tactful ways of making an argument while still being confident/strong minded. I'm just saying, you get into these arguments more than anyone, I'm suggesting you may want to reconsider your tact if you want to prevent having to defend yourself on the manner every few months.
We come here to read other's opinions and arguments, therefore we should all be a little bit more respectful and mindful when someone is willing to engage in thoughtful discourse.
With that, I'm done here. I initially meant to come in here to mediate and help improve the discourse, and ended up getting into an argument about an argument.
