Tact, when used correctly, attempts to get one's message across to others in an efficient manner. Do not be mistake efficient for heartless or trite remarks. It can take time to refine the message, but once sprung an effective message can at least distill the idea for others to see even if not agreed with. It often involves showing respect and recognition that the other person has some rationale (even if poorly reasoned by your own thoughts) for doing or believing something. Odd you ask this question as you have attempted tact within this very thread. Of course tact is it's own downfall when a person places more importance on it than on the message or when used for manipulation. Nor is tact the panacea for all conditions; like a bomb with a few seconds left, some situations don't have the time for defusing.Tact is "useful"...? In what way?
This view which pain is more significant is subjective and dependent on the person and their experiences. Until that person has experienced the multitude of forms of pain and somehow remains sane can that particular person say accurately which pain is worse. Comparing between the kick in the balls versus being called stupid, I agree, I would prefer being called stupid. If I had to relive my life experiences of mental pain versus my physical pain, however, I would choose my physical pain.I have experience vengeance, mainly in the internet. It's not really as painful as being kicked in the balls.
Unfortunately, I do agree with you partially about this. Dealing with a problem just enough so it's not major enough to disrupt their world or self view.I still think most, if not all, have their "lines" extremely disproportional by virtue of care. Eat Luxury cuisine for yourself and then give a nickel to malnourished dying kid. How much "care" is invested in that scenario as oppose to telling someone to "go away'"?
Despite what you or others may say of yourself, I have yet to see you as either asshole or troll, you may have a veneer of condescension, but nothing bearing of ill will yet.
I have to disagree. What happens when they escape 'justice' again or even worse when they rise to positions of power? The cycle restarts or spirals farther out of control. I think "assholes" need to learn of themselves and everyone else as human beings. Of course, I'm probably spouting crazy NF shit that can be ignored.EffEmDoubleyou
I think a lot of trolls deserve the justice of a black eye.
