    Even the Ancient Greeks discovered that ecstasy is stepping outside the taken for granted. And what we have to step outside of is the values of the USA.

    And stepping outside these values does not mean we loose them, it means we rise to ecstasy.
    This place is hysterical!

    I was just joking.

    I now think this is the real conflict with INFPs & INTPs - they don't read FiTe sarcasm (too dry?). I understand not finding something funny (I'm no comedian), but not recognizing someone as not being serious is different. I've just realized that's related to a few conflicts I've had with INTPs. I'm kidding, they take it seriously, I say I am joking, they insist I was not....

    Me: Man, I love Barbara Streisand.
    INTP: I can't stand her stupid music & hideous face. My SFJ mom loves her. I can't believe you like her.
    Me: Dude, I was just kidding.
    INTP: No, you weren't. I know you were being serious.
    Me: No I wasn't...
    INTP: Don't be so sensitive. If you like her, that's fine. I just think people who like her are imbeciles.
    Me: I was joking!
    INTP: Prove it then.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Oh, I'm glad you were joking . Here, have a hug. Your humour is a bit more acid than the average INFP humour. I like you.

    Perhaps surprisingly, being thick skinned and being respectful are not exclusive of each other. Those who consider themselves paradigms of being thick-skinned, should in a forum argument take their own advice and step away from the computer rather than continuing. Those who consider themselves above-average considerate should back off and perhaps even apologize. The problem is that one may seem aloof and cold or alternatively passive and weak. For me, the more dramatic the argument, the more I think both side's actions as idiotic.

    Our biggest problem is blaming others while holding ourselves as being morally right and logical. She overreacted, he should have stepped away, they should have done this and that; We don't listen to our own advice of "I control my actions and reactions" (which we don't fully, but ehh) and instead we tell them what they have done wrong rather than accept that we have our own bias preventing us from seeing what wrong we have done. Of course this can slide into complete appeasement offline, and that can be a balancing act to avoid. However for forum stuff, if you truly believe internet forums shouldn't affect anyone then an internet 'appeasement' shouldn't affect you either. Or report stuff: maybe the mods will make a decision you don't like, but it'll probably lead to a better result than telling another that they are idiots and should jump off a bridge./Serious post in fluff pile
