honestly i need to say that some of the excessive chidish and defenisive bullshit of late is pissing me off as well.
and it IS more than one particular instance or two...
and i blame the people that can't take objective comments or criticism with a grain of salt.
most of us are mature enough to accept when we are wrong or mistaken about something.
more importantly it seems that often certain "humor", perhaps of the dry varity, or sarcasm isnt received by some folks in the light hearted manner it was intended...or even worse certain people dont catch certain attempts at wit period and therefore might take certain frivilous statements literally...
honestly, i don't consider myself a genius as far as phish or anything else is concerned. but if YOU are reading something that seems ridiculous or odd it might be a harmless joke you are not getting, so don't react by lashing out with some childish name calling or cursing or whatever.
personally, i am not asking for a harvard degree, but just some common sense, and perhaps a modicum of self control or restraint.
can we please just go back to having an appreciation for varied opinions and such, and regain some level of mutual respect.
otherwise we need to hire a bouncer to start checking IDs at the door pronto.
