    Simple Observation...

    i stumbled upon a seemingly well intended discussion about how to stop personal attacks on EP, "what a humble cause" I thought. But being new to EP I am not aware of the diff. key players and their following so I should have just kept my opinion to myself, but I am a...

    Attacking The Issues Together

    I, personally, don't like personal attacks because the only thing they accomplish is counter-productivity. Whenever I present an argument, (particularly controversial ones), and someone chooses to attack me personally, I know that they are either: ignorant, stupid, or both...

    True

    Hell. If you don't like my straightwardness. Don't bother to read my stories.  I don't like personal attack on me either. If you personally attack me. I will delete your comments and I will block you. So you can't attack me. Period. Thanks.

    Dirty Laundry Needs to Be Washed, Not Aired!

    A simple note in a private saying, "Dear (whoever), Please refrain from causing me personal offense." works nicely. Blogging or writing stories, or keying cars, throwing eggs, etcetera.... in public achieves nada and gets you reported any way. Has decorum gone by the...

    Isn't There, Like, Something Better and More Worthwhile to Do?

    . . . because it is a waste of my time and a waste of the other person's time.  If someone is going to go out and be a fool, @$$, beeotch, buffoon, or nincompoop, I am sure they'll do just fine on their own, without my having to address the fact.  Besides, I respect...

    It's Juvenile

    If I disagree with what you say, I may tell you so, but I will do so respectfully and won't name-call and get personal. I don't use personal attacks as a way of communicating. And if you choose to personally attack me, the only response you will get is me walking away. I have...

    Not My Style
