    The Power Of The Word

    I make it a point to be very conscientious of the way I go about saying or writing things to people.  Typically, when I write a comment I will read it over a couple of times afterwords and look for the "holes" in it.  Many people I comment on are total strangers to me...

    Can Not Believe How Stupid Some People Are.

    When I said I can not believe how stupid some people are, I did not mean for some people to take it as a challenge.

    It Doesn't Matter? It Does Matter?

    I am constantly rewording my comments to people. I normally add in words that don't really need to be there just so it can't possibly be taken the wrong way. And even then I worry! >.< Quite often I actually stop writing my comment and delete it all together...
