    to take the example we are using, the inflammatory comment was really just an observation. it was true. i've seen the photos around a lot. it just happened to be tinged with derision if interpreted in a personal light.
    Yeah, I get that. But there is a time and place for everything. In another thread it probably wouldn't even hit the radar. But it was his little fun thread and he felt attacked. I don't get what is so hard about backing off even if you think the other person is being ridiculous.

    (Reminds me of the tale as to which is more powerful, warm, soothing sun or cold, biting wind. Yadda, yadda, cut to the chase, the sun wins the bet by getting the traveller to take their cloak off. Such is the power of the SF/NF, )

    I'm done on my main topic I think. I'm not trying to step on a soap box, I just saw a need to address some behavior and I did that. Everyone can take what I said however they wish.

Interactions follow accordingly.
    Eh...it's off and on for me. I admit I read the main thread in question here and found the exchange hilarious. If you aren't always naturally in tune with people's feelings to begin with, the internet can add an extra layer of detachment, and it's easy to laugh at someone having what seems like a disproportionate reaction. Instead of feeling empathy for someone, it's like I'm just reading a comedy website. Generally I do think of people online as "real" and approach them that way though.

    Yeah, until they get booted.

    So now we descend to more divisionary tactics, with moderation behind it too?

    Yup. And conflict can be positive, there are real gains to be made through conflictive situations that are helmed well.

    I always think it's too bad when someone leaves a conflict early, never to return. Missed opportunity. /<blah blah blah>

    Strangely, I don't really see much "rudeness" on the forum compared to the past. Maybe I am oblivious. There is more drama on this forum than in my real life now... weird.

    I think that, if it were up to NTs, the whole world would be like a Professor Layton game, where everyone you meet starts making up puzzles for no discernible reason instead of tryng to get to know you.
