Again my question, especially now that you’ve stated,.. “I am happy to come in, sit on Jims porch and shoot the breeze with like minded people”....so why would you go to a site that trashes your friend and FR friends here?.... Do you also see them as like minded people when you sit on their porch while they shoot insults at Jim and those here?
No. I don’t particularly like it. Have actually posted to that effect - same username there as here, so you can quickly check on that statement for yourself. (Post 15 on the first page of my posted comments on my profile, for ease of reference, though it might be on the following page by the time you read this)
In some peoples cases I understand it, but that no more means I agree with it than I necessarily agree with you on everything.
As to why? Hey, they got libs there to debate! At least three, and two of them are very, very good at tying you in knots in an argument.
Also have a lot of friends there, some of whom I disagree with hugely and love arguing with.
I have people I consider friends here too, who I disagree with hugely. To give you one example from here - Quix (courtesy pinged) and I are about as far apart on the religious spectrum as it is possible to be, and argue about that almost constantly. Yet we are friends.
It isn’t an either/or thing. I am a member of several dozen sites. I am a writer and do script work for movies (usually really bad movies, but that is beside the point). Does that make me a Hollywood liberal?
Your attitude is the attitude that peeved me enough to post in a thread I would not normally post in.
I am me. Not you. Not married to you, related to you or beholden to you in any way, shape or form. You want something from me, you better be persuasive, because dictating to me does not work. The only person that has that right has been my right hand, support and shield for 37 years, and even she doesn’t try to tell me who I can and cannot associate with.
Until Jim tells me I am not welcome on his porch, which is totally his right, I will continue to visit, to see my friends and chat about the day. Yes, I’ll continue to fetch along the odd six pack. So what. Any guest who has even a vague sense of decency does that and respects their hosts feelings.
I am also free to go to other sites and post there too.
