    We are talking about validating feelings. The diary author validated his wingnut friend's feelings of frustration. That helped keep the wingnut's defenses down which made it easier for him to actually hear what the author was saying.

    Your example is of someone validating a "fact" (SS is a problem) which is not the same thing.

    All Kossacks are my allies, but if you can't express your thoughts in a civil and kind manner, I won't be engaging in a conversation with you.
