Ed Poor <uncle_ed_p...@yahoo.com>, Wed, 2 Apr 2008 08:11:22 -0700 (PDT):You'd have to be an idiot to think that phrases like "don't be a dick"
or "don't be an idiot" are generally considered to be insulting.
However, I'm perfectly willing to avoid using them.
There should be one standard for all, even though liberals insist on a
double standard. I had to give User:Fox a public scolding, because he
was claiming to apply one standard while simultaneously insisting on a
double standard! He pushed all TK's buttons and made a mountain out of
a molehill, instead of handling it behind the scenes. As soon as I
paroled TK the first time, he should have realized this is not a good
time to create a public scene (on the other hand, I myself should have
set a better example by not unilaterally paroling TK.)
This is what I mean about liberals insisting on higher standards. Any
criticism of Fox, he just turns right around and starts blaming
others. Anything to take the heat off, I guess.
Well, I don't mind being held to a higher standard. So, anything I do
wrong, feel free to contact me and tell me off. (Hint: gentle, patient
words work better with me than, um, the alternative.)
