That is because there are several different personality types out there. Some people may take a comment to be nothing much but others may take it very personally. People need to be aware of these differences and respect that we're not at all the same.

I agree Jeff, but that respect has to go both ways.  People that might take offense need to understand that there are people that are not as tactful or shy about speaking their mind and not be so quick to take offense.

People have different personalities and different beliefs, that doesn't make it wrong to say what you think is right and defend your beliefs.  Just make sure that by defending your own beliefs, you are not insulting the person that doesn't agree.

Well  it wasn't me. Sorry I missed it. :)

Never unstood anyone who wants to take a pop at someone whose trying to help out...As an Admin on a forum i've been on the recieving end of abush by wayaward users never understoof that either...

Why upset the guy whose board it is, if he wants you gone he'll do it...

As i was always told be nice, you nevr know when the person you've upset is the person you most need help from...

the sad think is this post has to exist, i would think this to be common sense, and that it probably is it's just common sense strangley enough isn't all that common.  :-\
