Not shutting down. Again, you're misunderstanding the intent behind my words. I wasn't telling you to do anything- you took it upon yourself to assume this. I made a sidenote of my own perspective, which, apparently struck a cord with your sensibilities. Probably a Ti/Te mismatch in thinking vs intent. I felt I was joining in on a discussion, not "shutting it down," merely because my own pov might have some opposition to yours. Debating points of view, etc, is part of provocative thinking, yes? Learning/growth..
