I pay zero attention to screen names from one thread to another. I could be in a bitter battle with someone on a particular thread where mean and insulting comments are made toward me (ok, ok, OR by me) then 5 minutes later wander to another unrelated thread where I'm agreeing with, joking with, or complimenting the very same person from the previous thread.
We have more in common than we are different.
Pass the bean dip....pass the bean dip...pass the bean dip. Sometimes you really aren't going to change someone's mind, no matter how much you believe in something and want to engage in thoughtful conversation about it. So, pass the bean dip, please!
In the end, only kindness matters.
...but like neetling just said, sometimes the only good answer truly is 'suck it.'
I'm not the only one in the world who needs a break/wants a good strong cup of coffee/would climb heaven and earth for a good night's sleep, etc. So maybe I should just get over myself.
And...if I need the advice of sage, wise women or just need a virtual hug -- MDC is a great place to get these things.
