Before it does, sorry Diamond dude, for singling you out, I was harsh, but really meant I just wanna hear what you think sometimes. And Z edgy and 80's sorry for getting your backs up about all this. And yes Sicy girl it was me! I think we can gather from Lemonite and Zoner's debate, the best thing to do when including someone in your argument, is to address them sepcifically.
We should save all this clever writing for a real debate! (like I can talk, being an instigator in all this, but ... )

Hahah.. Well said, I was beginning to feel the same thing... (I would put a thumbs up icon.. but it's always adam for me..)... Hahaha...

So, are you saying you are not a real human? Are you asking if I am a real human? Or do you see this as a place where everyone around you is not real - that they are computer-generated IDs that spit out responses to your posts.

Or, is this computer idea what you are creating at Notre Dame that is going to keep you out of a cubicle?

I'm not following your logic here...zonelistener might be a nick I use for this board, but there is a real life human behind the nick, as well as for Lilly, Fizzing, Sicy and PopAngel, Sula and Diamond. Maybe if you had the opportunity to actually put a face and real name to some of the "anonymous" posters - you would feel differently. I stand behind what I post here, knowing all well that many others know that there is a human behind the posts.

I wanted to post this....Icelady wrote this in Zoo Confessionals and I thought it was great. Mind you, I am guilty of this at times too - but she has a great argument.

But I hear so much about this whole "it is not real". Itís just a forum. Get a life. And the list goes on. But you tend to forget that no matter whether itís the internet or not, no matter whether you know these people or not, not matter how real or not real it is, pointed words still hurt. It doesnít feel good with people you know and it doesnít feel good on the internet either. Maybe it's just because I'm older and have children - who knows.

When I come to these places, although I may not agree with what a person say or thinks, I have enough sense to realize that it doesnít matter what I think or what they think.

But it does matter how you treat people. Just because itís the internet and itís just a forum/I don't know these people doesnít give anyone the right to disrespect people and to be hurtful.

Iím sorry but sometimes I get angry when people belittle the fact that it shouldnít hurt your feelings or whatever.

Everyone should just be a little nicer and a little more considerate and a little more respectful of each other.

Sorry didnít mean to gripe but Iíve said my piece...

i'm just joining the debate, but all i'd like to say is that i agree with what zonelistener quotes icelady as saying (lol - isn't that a mouthful?) about the internet life vs. the real life.

the net is a weird thing, because there's real people involved but it's all done anonymously, and it can be hard to tell sometimes what a person's emotions or whatever is behind what they're saying.

so much of the debate and arguing that happens here is done with little consideration for the person or people disagreeing with you. (that's a general you, btw. i'm not pointing fingers or anything.) far too often (and i've been guilty of this too) i've seen offensive comments made in various forums and chats (not just here) and it does kinda suck.

unfortunately, the advantage a chat has where it's more of a real-time place to talk, as well as a forum (somewhat at least), is a double-edged sword. it gives the opportunity for a debate to spark and for some very horrible comments to be made. had there been more time to reply to them (like with e-mail), the debate could've gone smoother.

just my opinion.

Hahaha.. I was 'Lucky'??? Oh Deary Me.. (Ducks the flying Tube Top).. Still... Just a reference, you publish yourself on a 'webforum' I don't quite think you're free from any reference.. Unless you were just trying to play tough?.. Nice... Your sense of Humor is appreciated.
