Help!
chopped nuts advice thread..


.....nutta,

In the best spirit of sharing knowledge, I would be glad to give you some short lecture type advice on the lines between sarcasm, personal attack and humor.

.. with your permission..

No doubt you might say some things I won't like ( I can feel it coming, as I've obviously touched a raw nerve with some of you )

but given all thats been said, I would be extremely narrow minded to not hear you out, good, bad or indifferent.
So please be frank as you like, I won't be taking it to the moderator no matter what you say ( or anyone else )

Please be patient. I am going to attempt to let all the diversion attempts to this thread happen first. After they get bored with my non-involvement, and move on... we can get to the issue.

Until then.
Frank

sure no problem, although I'd be happy for you to continue as is, seeing as it is a public forum after all, and I do have a taste for vigorous honest debate
but I am curious as to your thoughts and considerations..

No, it is not eljim and others who have some such. Points are not awarded based upon political affiliation of a supposed reporting person who "reads" something into a post with this alleged context blindness.

That is a gross exaggeration. I would put the number of posts which are created only to attempt to get someone to "slip up" and post some reportable content at maybe 1/10 of 1%.

MOST posts that I see are responses to other posts, nothing more.

is that the same sort of tendancy as Americans not understanding irony ?

I for one would like you to be more specific, with examples if you would, of what you mean by "context blindness" please.

are you sort of saying "you don't live here so you don't know so whatever you say about our country aint worth squat unless you agree then you're ok" ?
because that sort of attitude is called cultural blindness, though this probably isn't what your saying or have I missed your point ?
either way i would like to know what you mean by "context blindness"

to me it would appear that some people are more robust than others whilst a few are easily offended or perpetually outraged and lack a sense of humour about themselves or their culture which leads to an intolerant attitude, IMHO !!

not that I am pointing a finger at anyone within the RCgroups of course I'm just commenting on general tendencies of human nature
