    you're accusing me of not being supportive? Do you realize how empty that is? Can I just ask you to trust me? I am really really really really supportive of these protests, and I have spent WAY too much time arguing with ppl about "Oh, what are the goals??" (Like Bob Fucking Cescca.) Fuck that. PPl with their asses out there deserve our support.

      I'm saying you don't SOUND supportive. You opened with "Good God." That opener and the whole post SOUNDED not supportive. And then, when someone suggested you weren't supportive, you acted shocked. And then I suggested that the issue was tone and you said I was lecturing were are.

      If you think your posts SOUNDED supportive, I would say that you maybe don't have a good sense of how you come across to others.

      Disagreeing is no problem - it's a question of tearing down or building up.

      Of course, all of this is my opinion and really it was just a suggestion. And if you honestly feel you are coming across supportive, by all means - continue. But if you continually have people accusing you of not being supportive, it might be tone. Just sayin'...

      Thousands of years ago the question was asked: 'Am I my brother's keeper?' That question has never yet been answered in a way that is satisfactory to civilized society. ~ Eugene V. Debs

      who the people are who voted on this, without understanding that if the occupyboston web site published it, it had to have been sanctioned by a vast majority of the community there. the occupyboston web site has been sanctioned as the only official web site. What gets published there is agreed upon by everyone at the General Assembly.

      So, disagree with the items, the presentation, whatever, but quit trying to delegitimize it as representative of the protesters there.

      I was there for 3 days to get a sense of how they work. It's a very powerful thing. It is not perfect. But it is awesome. Rather than sit here belittling the validity of the list, you might try experiencing the process.

      Please remember to Witness Revolution. It means so much to them that we pay attention.
