    Again, this isn't "The Hopeless Thread", it's "The Happy Thread".

    How it eventually resolves, soon or years from now isn't the point, it's about posting what we are happy about, right now.

    The mere pointing out the facts while still telling you you're entitled to your happiness, and I get a response like this? Who's the one now? My how this forum has degraded to a point where it's just not worth contributing to. The overt sensitivity found here is mind boggling.

    Hey, this is "The Happy Thread. :D", and there is this Win to be Happy about:
    Senator Ed Markey - Senate Win on Restoring Net Neutrality.JPG
    https://twitter.com/SenMarkey

    It's going to be a long fought battle, it's way too early to be giving up. :cool:

    Downright clinical, tbh. I'd post more, but I find myself wondering if the next thing I say might not be what pushes the next delicate soul off of the cliff. Makes my wonder how many use internet forums to hide from RL.

    I'll end on a happy note :vbbiggrin::

    For all of my life, I've been at the 'front of the store': waiter, restaurant manager, bellman, recruiter, office manager, salesman, business owner with a clientele base of around 200. Does anyone think I'd be in these positions coming across as, or being rude? Lets just say there's one thing I have a lot of experience in, and that is interacting with people. I also have a general good nature about me and never try to offend or disrespect anyone. I dislike rude people. Do I just play it safe? Never. However, pointing things out, contradicting, or disagreeing is not offending- there's a difference here. Also within a group I may know, I can push the envelope of humor and I can be wry. But to come out and say, 'I suppose crapping on someone else's happiness is your happiness', certainly makes me feel bad and I just don't understand how this comment is warranted at all. But hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion here.

    You speak of pushing the next delicate soul off the cliff. But we know what usually happens here is the delicate ones create an environment where others feel uncomfortable participating. And this is the unfortunate result, they usually win at this game. I've been here long enough to notice the change. Myself, I think I'll be a little more expressive, sarcastic, opinionated, crass, bombastic...and stick around. Hey, if I offend trying to be respectful, I might as well not try. :D
