Subject: RE: BS: Why Do People start biased, imflammatory
bbc..having just posted to one of 'those' threads, I see your point...but let's face it- you will not stop them. You are quite different in your outlook and sensitive points than others. We have a wide diversity of people here and Max has put VERY few limits on what can be discussed. I used to abstain from many of the BS threads, and seldom START one, but whatta ya gonna do?...and YOU just added one more log to the fire...*shrug*...Remember sitting around at the Getaway where we all came together to make music? There were MANY conversation that weekend that had nothing to do with music...even between you & I. It just 'happens'. I, too, often wish there were less extraneous stuff, but I am learning to do as I did at the Getaway when the conversation went in direction I found silly or not to my taste..get up and go across the room. Can you really imaging getting up in the dining-hall at thr Getaway and standing on a table and shouting at everyone to keep their talk 'on topic'?...yep...I know there are differences...but..
