    This Has Been Depressing

     I've been reading around lately, picking up on some spats that are going on here, and what I'm getting is that we are sometimes short on tolerance, patience and tact. I think we need to remember why so many of us have come to value this place.  Some of us are wise...

    I Get The Joke

    Who else does? Anyone bitching about intolerance in here doesn't get the joke.

    Shall We Institute Censorship On Ep?

    My short answer is a resounding NO!   EP is supposedly a place where individuals can anonymously write about their experiences, and present themselves as they actually are … warts, kinks and all. However there seems to be a number of groups and individual folks who...

    But He Started It!!!

    Somedays on here I feel like an apathetic school teacher watching children beat each other senseless with whiffle ball bats and insults.   It's so childish sometimes.  I know that real issues do come up on here and legitimate arguments.  Those seem to be...

    Tackyville

    I think it's a great place to learn about other views and differences. Just wish people could do it without attacks on one another. Sometimes the pages become tacky and crass without a point to the subjects. Thank God we can move on when we come across these pages. Life is to...

    The Only Thing I Can't Tolerate Is Intolerance....

    ? I think if people want to express intolerant views then that is their right, but I don't think those views should be voiced via comments to EP-ers who are clearly battling demons and looking for support.  Intolerance should rather be expressed via individual...

    Intolerance

    In the past I've spoken out about racim, sexism and intolerance on EP. There isn't a lot, but I have come across a few. Like the nameles guy from South Africa who used a picture of Nazi Reinhard Heydrich a his avatar. I made a comment about it, he didn't like it, but who cares...

    Shows the World As It Is

    Need to change my opinion on this one because isn't that being a bit intolerent? Our world has so much hate and intolerance for others and the only way to deal with it is to stay open to change and keep some kind of perspective that nobody is perfect and neither is one way of...

    Tolerate to Put Up With.

    I enjoy a good discussion and debate with others who's ideas and philosaphies are not as my own.  But there is so many who use degrogatory statements and just mean words to make others feel bad.  As a Christian I am more sensitive to the ones who hate Christianity and...

    Quite the Opposite

    You Can Tell From Experience

    You can often tell from experience what kinds of things you might like or not like.   You might also choose to engage with the things you like and avoid those you don't. Sometimes, though, you have no choice because the thing, likeable or not, is thrust upon you. But...
