    Perhaps you should inform the rude people that you find them rude, that way everything will be worked out Talking about the rude people in another thread is also..kind of rude.

    The comparison alone would take books to fully expound, and the lack of such sources is very surprising to me.
    Totally agree.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    This is a good point. Or not even necessarily tired, but they're escaping their RL problems, feeling frustrated from something...

    I don't know why people are so rude. Maybe ask the guy who started the hope you all die thread in the SP arthouse. I won't even open it. Jerk.

    i just naturally ignore attitudes i don't like but i also have a bit of a dark sense of humor and can think playful prickishness is funny....so i think it depends on intent.

    That only works if there are one or two people to which it applies. When talking about a big picture problem, you are addressing something impersonally that applies to more people than you will ever encounter. Also, calling someone on rudeness basically always escalates the problem. If someone is in a communication mode to try to humiliate, threaten, or just annoy, they already know it. Telling them they are doing it and asking them to stop is an invitation to take it to the next level. It helps to understand it, although there isn't anything that can be done to change it. The only thing that can change is one's own reaction to it after better understanding it.

    Very true. There are also a lot of people who just communicate in a fighting mode all the time. There are families and relationships where fighting is the baseline mode of communication. People with that background probably don't realize that there are different communication styles.

    Yeah, me too...I love black comedies. I think that the novel Wuthering Heights is hilarious, so my sense of humor can be dark and so I make comments that I think are funny, and laugh at (or with) people who have a similar sense of humor. Of course it can be taken too far, but I think humor is a big part of it.

    We have developed a cortex, evolved beyond our instincts--however, that part of the brain still exists and manifests itself through the rational cortex. It is only in instincts that we can find real consistency in human behavior, that is the center of us and should be the central focus when attempting to understand human behavior.

    This reminds me of something I call "cortex retardation" (as oxymoronic as that might sound) I am not entirely sure, but my guess is that it is caused by a combination of the realization that one can understand and alter their external environment better with logical thinking, so they develop an imbalanced preference for a strictly logical perspective to counter-balance feelings of inadequate level of control whenever they arise. Because their consciousness is being forcibly disconnected from their instincts yet it is still under their effect, they ultimately lose the strength and fortitude they sought through rationalization because the instincts themselves are not developed in the conscious mind, and are notably less capable in understanding the myriad of circumstances which involve humans, whether themselves or others.

    Of course, this response to my approach is nothing new to me. It's what I like to call "cortex retardation" (as oxymoronic as that might sound) I am not entirely sure, but my guess is that it is caused by the realization that one can understand and alter their external environment with logical thinking, so they develop an imbalanced preference for logical understanding to counteract feelings resulting from an inability to control what cannot be controlled by them. Because they force a conscious disconnection from their instincts, they ultimately lose the strength and fortitude they sought through rationalization because they remain under the effect of [underdeveloped] instincts, and are notably less capable in understanding the myriad of circumstances which involve humans, whether themselves or others.
    It cannot be your advice and poetry?
