Indeed. Especially when it was only 8 degrees outside for me this morning! I'd rather be in Hawaii!

We can look at Germain words too. The one that comes to mind is fremdschämen.

I have a few my great Grandmother used ( usually when talking about the Kaiser). ...... but a family forum is not the best place for them.

Yeah. You feel embarrassed for them. So much you have to look away.

I know this feeling very well. It's not comfortable when I experience shame for someone else who has none for themself.

Re: Harsh posters

I closed the offending thread. It's too messy to sort out and I'm not here to sort out the he said she said. Especially in the Politics and Religion section.

Keep reporting and all, but seriously that section has



all over it and if things just start piling up in there...things are just getting shut down.

Who gives a crap when you made those posts or who they're directed at?

Your posts were uncalled for as well. That's why you got banned the first time.

It really comes to this:

Here you are complaining about other people's harsh posts when you're guilty of the same transgression.

You can't effectively defend yourself by saying "oh those posts were a month ago" or "they were directed to different people" or "they goaded me into saying it".

Nor can you use the old "they have no right to do that!"

Maybe they do, maybe they don't, it's not your call and it doesn't validate your own harsh posts.

You're the type to say to the cop "yes I was speeding but so was everyone else, therefore I shouldn't get a ticket". Or "The other looter broke the window, I entered the building after it was almost completely cleaned out and there was one TV left so I grabbed it and you should go arrest them and let me go".

Your logic is faulty, your argument is invalid, your posts are harsh, you have nothing.

Sorry.

Must admit I came here looking to find MY name since Mr. Blunt (tip of the hat to you, sir) said I was even MORE BLUNT than him!

Carry on! (as our Brit friends would say!)

Re: Harsh posters

I'm going to wager a guess that the transgressions didn't earn a permanent ban.

Edited to add.. then again it was a subsequent ban and many of her posts were deleted. So perhaps that's the end of that.

This thread is rather interesting in that it clearly demonstrates how some people can be in such self denial.

No different than when in a relationship.
