Very classy indeed. I like Batz, and it was an easy conclusion to jump to, but people (in general) around here need to start assuming the best about people instead of the worst. I mean, I don’t know if I’ve ever heard Mishell say a bad thing about ANYONE- I really don’t.
Zette, I couldn’t agree with you more. I think a lot of misunderstandings, disagreements, and Pit posts could be avoided if, when we take exception at what someone writes, we could all step back, calm down, and see it in the best light possible.
If it still seems offensive, a polite request for clarification will always be met less defensively than an accusation (or even veiled accusation) of stupidity, dishonesty, bigotry, racism, classism, etc.
Oh yeah? I’ll have you know that I can be every bit as stupid, dishonest, and bigoted TWO FULL WEEKS after reading a post as I was the first time I read it. Classist jerk! Think you’re better than me, doncha?
Actually, I honestly intended to post an apology and express my sympathy in that thread after seeing her explanation, but it slipped my mind. I apologize for throwing that in, I wasn’t really thinking about the content of the whole post when I said that, just that one part.
I have had some problems in my life lately, but I can’t blame them for that post. It was just a case of my reacting before thinking. My apologies to mishell.
