  •  All we can go in is your words (0+ / 0-)

    If you feel you were misunderstood, use different words.

    •  ahem... "go on", not "go in" (0+ / 0-)
    •  You assume that my words were not... (0+ / 0-)

      twisted for arguments sake.  As I said, people should say what they think rather than dictating to me about what I am thinking.  It's pretty easy to understand, actually.

      •  I assume that if 20 or 30 people "mistake" your (0+ / 0-)

        meaning, it might be because your wording needs tweaking to make your meaning clear.

        Communication does not occur just because a sender puts noises out into space. It takes place when the noises are received and unscrambled to the mutual agreement of sender and receiver.

        If you don't want to communicate your actual meaning, that's fine by me.

        If you are a Debbie Downer and mean precisely what 20 or 30 of us think you said in your original message, that's fine by me. A bunch of us disagree with you.

        I'm done.

        •  20 or 30? (0+ / 0-)

          Isn't it more like 2 or 3?  Why does every observation that differs give cause to a silly conversation like this?

          I do not go around this site lecturing others about what they mean.  More should follow my example.

          •  I couldn't resist reading your reply (0+ / 0-)

            Communication... um no. Counting recs... um no.

            Alas 53, our little voice crying out in the wilderness, just sure that others should follow her/him....

            •  And then you show the small side. (0+ / 0-)

              Don't understand why it it always comes down to an insult.

              If I am discussing with 2-3, I think saying it's 20-30, not to mention the rest, shows it was not really about what I originally meant, or communication.

              You just wanted to put me down because you did not like my opinion.  It's the norm here.

              So it goes.
