Is Everything an Insult Now?
I'm noticing some major sensitivity on these boards lately. Tell someone you think their post is arrogant and you've now "insulted" them. Tell someone you think s/he's an angry person and you've now "insulted" them.
People need to calm down and stop taking things so seriously around here. Am I wrong? Is "angry" an insult now and I just didn't get the memo?

wickabee, how dare you say such things!! I find that to be an insult!!!
yes I have noticed the same thing. people don't seem to like the idea that people may have a different opinion than theirs and some how this is an insult or you are dumb for having a different opinion.
everyone seems to think they have the facts, but when you say otherwise, you are dumb or insulting them.
not sure, but it won't stop me from posting what I want to.

I suppose part of it is the growing trend I'm noticing here of ignoring all but two or three words in a post and responding only to those two or three words. There's also more emphasis on "winning" a point than coming to an agreement. When a point can't be won on merrit, accusations of insults are flung about like feces in the monkey cage. I, for one, am quite sick of it. We all complain that the government is partisan and can't talk to each other and can't get anything done because of it, but looks at us. We're not even charged with these decisions. We're all here because we want to be and we still devolve into the same petty nonsense instead of just taking our lumps when they come. We all post stupid things from time to time, it doesn't make any one of us stupid. Yet when a stupid post is pointed out, it's immediately taken as an insult toward the speaker, not the statement.
Basically, I wish everyone would grow up a little and stop taking every little thing like the biggest attack on a person's character in the history of the world.
None of us is important enough to even be able to be subjected to that. Why do we all think we are?
