So why does every thread here have to deteriorate into personal attacks? I'm so sick of being called a "liar", an "idiot", etc. I don't care for all the cuss words everyone uses but I can't stop them and I don't call them "rude" or "idiots" or "uncouth" etc, mainly because it's their right here to use them even though I do believe it's rude. I disagree with many here but very seldom have I resorted to personal attacks. I've talked about my home life, my family here....I believe I'm one of the most honest people here. There is nothing I've made up, I've even posted my actual name on this board, and my email, which I was lambasted for because someone thought I was posting someone else's email. A monitor took the email out of the post. My husband warns me about being too open on the internet and the crazies out there, but then again he doesn't want me honking my horn at kids crossing the street in the middle of a busy highway instead of walking 50 feet to the crosswalk or speaking out when someone does something wrong in public. I feel if I have to live my live in fear of others than what's the use of living? I've lived this way for 53 years (well, with the internet only since it's been invented). I don't think I'm gonna change now. I talk to perfect strangers everywhere I go. I had one of my friends say I make friends everywhere I go and another say that I make people happy. I think those are the best compliments I've ever had. Yet here, on this board, I have people attacking me just because I disagree with them. Why is that? I'm certain they would not act that way if they saw me face to face. Well enough rambling...I guess my point is that people should project who they are on this board rather than the rude a**h*les they seem to want to project. I'm looking for a debate.....anybody know where I can find one?
