    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I think it is hard not to speak on the spectacles playing out before us.

    It takes great reserve not to publicly comment on these open displays.

    Not that I think we should, I'm just pointing out, it's easier said than done.

    Almost on any level it is difficult to do, especially if one feels impacted by it even slightly.

    To chastise another for speaking on the spectacle, means you are speaking on it too.

    Further proving my point.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    There is a way to broach every topic under the sun, without calling people names.

    These public and spectacular displays of pageantry put before us are worthy of discussion.

    We just happen to be the place where the engagement is done respectfully.

    We are quite unique in this regard.

    :heart:

    lol

    Actually, I'm speaking for others. Some may not know, in a debate/discussion what constitutes crossing the line. James and myself for example will go at it full bore on an issue and think nothing of it. GOOD forbid, someone else uses that as an example with everyone. They don't know that some have been here forever and have a history. I can say things to you that I know may hurt another's delicate sensibilities

    What you try'n to say ... i aint delicate ... i'ze aint a woman ... :getout:... :)

    nawww ... but fa real though ... :love:

    i'm not really speaking on what is or is not a rule violation

    the rules are pretty clear ... our 13 rules

    i'm speaking to the fact that all topics can be broached respectfully

    i'm not really interested in defining respect per se

    if anyone misses the mark ... they will be the first to know

    this thread is really just the musings of my mind ... :sad:

    Love You!

    :heart:
