Thread Name: BS: Why I am gone
Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
I do see your point Richard, that we should be vigilant and oppose all the 'isms' that oppress and hurt. And perhaps my stance is a bit lily-livered. I find strident confrontation rather difficult though. But one can, I think, express disapproval and even anger in a civilised and mature way. In fact, such a restrained response may in the end have more effect than outright ranting and insults. All I was trying to say (perhaps not very clearly) is that one isn't condemned to read posts which upset and enrage if one would rather not. There are some funny and interesting threads to go to instead.
