Wow. I have no problem at all with posters' opinions that don't 'match' mine. I do have a problem with twisting reality to further ridiculous arguments and insults to real people, two things you engage in frequently, rans. Obviously you do have hard feelings or you wouldn't be lobbing insults.
Show me ONE post that has insulted a poster.
I ONLY post about the show and NEVER poster bash. NEVER.
I'm too old to be bullied and care if i'm part of a little clique'.
I post my thoughts about the show within the guidelines of the board.
I don't insult posters the way I have been insulted. Not my style.
I'll show you one. This one. To tell me to only post in like threads where others will agree with me is INSULTING, rans.
You have given us all this bit before about how you post within the guidelines and it is simply NOT TRUE. You bully, you poster bash, you do all the things that you say you do not. But you will never ever OWN IT. We all know it. It is obvious to all of us as reflected in numerous posts in this thread, rans.
Or last week when I said your posts are sometimes belittling to others. You said that was my fault. Insulting AND condescending. If just once you could admit you were wrong. Just because you post within the guidelines does not make you any less insulting. If just once you could perhaps apologize. Perhaps you truly don't see how your words can hurt others feelings. Even when it is pointed out to you, even if it was not intentional, at least say your sorry for doing it, even if it was unintentional. Don't disregard other's feelings.
By your own word, you said my posts are belittling. Why critique my words? Just post about the show. That's what I try to do unless i'm personally called out. like you did.
If anyone is ever hurt by my posts that is not my intention.
If my opinions are hurtful. that too is not my intention.
Why anyone would be insulted by my opinion about GH is beyond me but, it is never my intention to be rude to anyone. If any posters feel that I am rude in my responses to them about the show, I sincerely apologize.
I love this show, and enjoy talking about it.
I was once called out for being condescending when I called someone, "Hon." Furthest thing from my mind, but some take that enderament as a slap in the face. Color me educated.
I think where the disconnect comes in here? Is that what you call your "opinion" isn't always that. It's a judgment. Conscious or not. For example. When I say the sky is blue - that's not my opinion, it's a fact. I cannot state that it's opinion. When you make a statement like how so many people akay with XYZ - that's not an opinion either. It's a judgment and an accusation, not your opinion.
I don't think you always intend to come across as hurtful, but I also think you are completely unaware sometimes that you do. When you're irritated, or insulted that so many people put Sonny down - it's natural to feel a little defensive, because it FEELS like an attack against you - even though it isn't.
Bottom line, calling something an opinion, doesn't mean that it is
. It's a defense mechanism we humans use to keep from having to look at where we went wrong.
