    I see some people here fuss on one thread and then joke together on another, while some will carry their baggage with each other from one thread to the next.

    Nope.

    Some do with me though, they don't know when to quit.

    No big deal.

    Not sure it's actually a grudge to dislike someone from one thread and another if their behavior is the same in each. Some are like broken records in every thread they touch.

    Is dislike of certain behaviors holding a grudge?

    I don't think so. I would say it becomes a grudge when you're not willing to acknowledge a person outside of whatever hang ups you have with each other.

    No......I don't hold grudges.........after I've turned off the 'puter, I tend to forget about the bad shit someone said, and remember all the good ideas that I've seen on here at USMB.

    And........I've seen a few.

    However, if Chucked Ass showed up in a bar one night, knew it was me, and walked over? I'd shake his hand and ask how he's doing.

    I'd then ask if he's gonna be an asshole in real life.

    From there? It's THEIR choice, but, after the ass kicking I'll give 'em, I'd buy 'em a beer.

    Grudge, no. USCitizen ticked me off a while back, bad enough for me to have him put me on ignore, (my request). That was then and I since tried to let him know I wasn't (childishly) piqued over the issue any longer but he can't get my PMs. Oh well.

    You can ask someone to ask if he's forgiven you.

    Or.......he may just see this thread....

    It's a waste of energy to carry a grudge.....but, loads of fun to annoy the people you don't like....:tongue:

    Most people I've fussed with end up being pretty ok when off the fussing topic :cool:

    That excludes the morons. But, morons don't count anyway.
