    No biggie.  I expressed my thoughts at the time, and there's certainly no point in repeating them endlessly in multiple diaries.  People in the group didn't care for them, and didn't feel they were worthy of actually discussing, so there wasn't any real point in my sticking around where I would simply be considered a 'troll' for not agreeing with the dominant mindset of the group.

      Once your views have been aired to folks that disagree with you, airing them again isn't going to change anyone's mind.

      You can continue to beat your head against the wall or you can TTFN or you can just not engage at all. Or you can ask lots of questions to try to figure out why people think the way they do... that's what I do when I really want to change someone's mind. I don't preach, I ask why? And I ask why again. And I try to figure out what questions might make them question themselves. It's hard work to change minds that way but it works a hell of a lot better than telling them why they are wrong.

      You're always welcome back - we've not been writing a weekly series the last couple of months. School year has been a tough one for too many of us I guess :)
