    First, I want to offer my whole apology to sista watz and brotha Kem for being so rude. There was no excuse for that.

    Second, I want everyone to understand why I am making this request. As many of you know I am visually impaired. I use a software program that magnifies the screen five or six times. This means that I can only see part of the screen at a time. When someone sends me a pm in chat whatever I was trying to type to the main chat gets transferred to the pm box. This is not only annoying to me but it also confuses the person pm'ing me when they receive a message that was meant for the main chat.

    So please, if you love me, if you respect me avoid sending me pm's in chat. However, feel free to send pm's in the forum. I would love to hear from you!

    Thanks,

    Da River

    Overstood, apologies and communication tip

    Bless up Sis River!

    100% overstood and thank you for sharing. :hearts4: Communications is Key as it provides clarity and information for which folk can make the informed decisions.

    My apologies for the hardships I may have caused in my ignorance.

    Finally, I would ask you to consider to this:

    "I AM visually impaired"...

    vs.

    "I HAVE a visual impairment"....

    are these two statements different...and if so...how?...

    You are right. There is a difference. To say I am vi is to make the vi a definitive aspect of who I am. To say I have a vi just means that''s something I have but is separate from who I am. I know this in practice and the way that I live and interact with others. Unfortunately, in this instance I was careless with the language.

    Thanks for the reminder. And thanks to all of Destee for not needing to be reminded about the practical application of this principle.

    Love yawl,:grouphug:
