You should neither take what I said personally, nor apologize for your own actions.
There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with holding and defending a position in the forum.
It’s all about HOW it’s done. I am talking about name calling, ad hominem attacks, angry outbursts, and so forth. THOSE are the things for which I “grade myself down” when I’m guilty of them.
From what I observe of your behavior here, you’re “doin’ it right”. I am trying to take a lesson from you and other reasonable posters to improve my OWN behavior.
Oh please, I am SORRY...I was stating my position. Not coming against you in the least. Yes, no name calling...it has been said when you start name calling, you’ve lost. OH there have been PLENTY of times, I’d love to do that...I take 10 deep breaths and back off until I can answer in an acceptable manner toward them and when I can’t...I just will not post back anything. Believe me, there are many more times when I have to do that than you can imagine.
