    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yes.

    If someone doesn't seem willing to read what I might say.
    If someone seems to be looking to validate their own opinions above seeking a greater understanding.
    If most people in a thread think they know everything, it makes me feel stupid for trying to show or suggest otherwise to them, which makes me feel momentarily decomposed and completely devalued as a human being, even if it is just an argument that people are focusing on (probably because things get personal then).

    You're fucking kidding me, right?

    I say this with the full awareness that I'll probably receive a "constructive criticism" in my "logic" that only barely attempts to mask a direct attack to my character. And that's fine, but I think I speak for a large amount of people here when I say that this is exactly the stuff that I (we?) don't like to respond to- not because we feel threatened or inferior, but because the discussions we have on this online website are supposed to be enlightening, not a self important one-upping contest. Or dick swinging contest. Or whatever kind of contest we're calling it now.
    Now that's just plain unpleasant!!

    Honestly, I don't give a flying fuck. If people throw stones, they need to make sure they have a pretty robust boulder shield in place, instead of crying about it when fire is returned. IOW, if you can't take the heat, stay out of the fucking kitchen.

    Jesus, what a bunch of wimps.

    However, a couple times that I tried to actually engage with you, it just seemed that we had quite a bit of trouble, like you had rules of logic that a conversation had to follow that were more important than what I was trying to say. I don't really understand all the rules, thus I have no way to present my thoughts within that framework, so I feel a bit at a loss sometimes, particularly in a text format. Like, to me, what is the point of even trying to explain it?
    I'm sorry that I don't understand irrationality and that I'm such a darned stickler for arguments that make sense. I'll try to do better in future.

    Great. Maybe we can paint some pottery later together too.

I know this kind of reply is par for the course for some members. I don't put anyone on ignore, though, because eventually, everyone has something to say that I find worthwhile.
    I wasn't going to involve myself in this, but I can't stand this kind of self-righteousness.

    You are fully aware that the post by Z's "sock" contained nothing more than inflammatory accusations of mental unhealthiness towards @Salomé. To then ask "oh, well do you guyz think there's anything valid in there?" is tantamount to saying that you do. That's passive aggression.

    It seems like you have a bad case of Just Spit It Out Already. Do you think that Salomé is mentally unhealthy and is guilty of harassment against the entire male gender?
