  •  Rudeness is like pornography (0+ / 0-)

    and I simply do not agree that we can recognize it when we see it.

    In classical times, nudity was common, and there was no feeling, or was there?, similar to the feeling.....

    You see, it comes down to vague and shifting feelings, fuzzy borders.....

    No, no, no, I simply do not see any remotely clear way to define rudeness or pornography.

    Not any clarity at all.


    I simply and firmly do not agree that we can give each other a resonable boundary or definition of rudeness, pornography, or who is overly sensitive.


    And your number 2 point, while it seems to make some sense, it still does not work, obviously, to write those words to someone who is arguing the same arguments, over and over.

    It usually does not work.

    If I state an idea that is simply correct information, but I fail to get the attention of my readers, or I fail to make myself clear enough, then my readers will not benefit.

    So, you can be correct, but fail to do anything but waste time.

    I know, because I have been there, and done that, myself, with some of my diaries on philosophy, and overpopulation, and nutrition.
