  •  angel d - what i meant by my being familiar (2+ / 0-)

    with that usage is that is it something that is southern and frequent.

    it can be used as an endearment, patronizing, insulting, many ways.

    it was a rude response - but not to the level of hr'worthy.  that was my point as well as saying that when something is familiar, then the reaction is different - obnoxious?  yes.  so dire that it needed to be hidden - well, if that is the standard, these pages and diaries would be filled with a whole lot of white space.

    i fight regularly for people to be civil - it is mostly a losing battle.  

    what i see here, though, is the same group of people going at each other's throats (NOT you, btw) and then when the least little excuse is given, the hr's fly.

    we have no real standards at the moment.  when that has happened in the past, markos finally gets fed up and comes in and bans everybody who was participating in the back and forth - from BOTH sides of the argument.

    and, to be clear - yes, the comment was rude and dismissive.  but it is not anywhere near the comments that are too disgusting for the non-long time user to see.  what i do when someone does that to me - and they do, frequently, is disengage.  i stop responding - perhaps one final post to say that i am no longer responding and why - then i walk away and go enjoy my pup or my horse or a good cuppa coffee!
