    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    There are times when I want to respond to a post but I don't because I don't want to come across as militant (even if I might be).

    It is my purpose in life to offend everyone. I don't want to hear anyone whining about feeling left out.

    If someone really offends me I put them on my ignore list. That list is empty so far and I've been a member here for "a few years." I occasionally do post one of my motherly lectures, but I try to keep it very mild for the forum. I can scare the s...tuff out of big strong men when I really get going.

    As far as face-to-face people who disagree with me - If I can't avoid the controversial subjects because they keep bringing them up, I have to tell them that I do not discuss that - whatever - at all.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    ==================
    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    You haven't offended me yet—but there is always hope for the future!

    I prefer to leave you feeling less than perfect and never acknowledge being offended.

    Well I for one am offended by all your hunting adventures. You are out there foolin around while I am at the salt mine.

    Keep up the good work.

    I've been around since 2005, and have yet to be offended by anyone - and that's hard because I'm mostly negative (it's the QA background). I compare these posts to sitting around a hunting camp campfire and solving all the problems of the day. It's fun to agree - disagree - rattle a few cages, and rub salt where it's needed. Many people haven't had that experience, so I can see where feathers could be ruffled without knowing the intent. It's gotten me into forum jail on other forums. I enjoy you all.
