Dude, what's with the freakin attitude?
If I misread your original post, I apologize. Geez.
"Dude," what is with YOUR 'freakin' attitude?
You misunderstood or misinterpreted something I said. I clarified it. I asked if you understood what my point was after I clarified.
That's central to what's called "discussion." It's OK to disagree, but it's not OK to misunderstand (and thus to disagree with something which isn't even what's being said in the first place).
I know that the internet is filled with people just aching to leap off the handle on these issues... looking to pick fights and flame and so forth. But that's not what this is about. I'm trying to have an actual civil conversation... which does NOT require people to just smile stupidly and agree with everything someone else says, but DOES require an honest effort to communicate clearly.
You didn't understand what I said. I clarified. And you seem to be upset that I clarified??? Sheesh...
