I've had tons of encounters on this site, and some people that found buttons I diligently attempted to hide.. [haha - good job you]
But I've come to be quite light-hearted about my discussing amd debating.
I can be very sarcastic if I get the chance, and those who are deathly serious take my responses with such resentment, I sometimes [this sounds bad, lol] can't help but laugh. [I usually refrain from posting laughy faces when they "attack" though, calling me insulting, childish [for calling on an error with sarcasm], or just get ugly with names.
I see everyone on this site as a brother or sister, though some may hate me, or I may be annoyed by them.. I still see them as important people.
Sometimes, I've re-read things I wrote that don't look so nice. [Though they were wrote with no harsh intention]
Our expression is lost through the screen, and I'm nearly always picking, joking, smiling, maybe being mischevious a lot.. but never meaning harm.
With the exception of my intolerance of the name callers. I am known to be one to attempt to step in, many times on account of helping a fellow hubber, with an intelligent person actively demeaning another.
If I come across wrong, [other than giving some their own response in return sometimes] I'd like to know how to fix it. Or how to let people know my non-serious brotherly-love style picking and poking attitude.
I'm always looking to better myself, and my people skills.
What's YOUR thoughts?
Do we perceive people innacurately most of the time?
Since we seldom have the opportunity to go face to face on a computer screen, it is often difficult to know without seeing, the seriousness, or jokingness of others commenting in such a restricted environment. Some come across as jovial, some as dead serious, some as knowledgeable, some as waaaay out in right field or left field. We only have their typed words on a screen to get a sense of who the person is and how they wish to be received.

Of course we do. I am constantly guilty of assuming the most likely which is why I didnt realise you were being sarcastic the other day.
Unfortunately, if you have seen religious satire videos on youtube, it is actually quite hard to tell the difference.
There are plently of die hard fundamentalists out there who never fail to say stupid things and actually believe they are being insightful.
In my experience debating theists on the internet it happens so often you begin to make assumations based on the majority of your past experiences.
Yeah, I took that you didn't get the sarcasm as extra leverage to pick at you. lol
Sorry.. but that's why the smiley is always there, because I mean no harm.
And your last sentence..ditto, cept atheists..
We all do it I guess.
[some of'em are just plain nasty though..] lol
All I can say about you is that I know we disagree on a lot of things, but we've kept everything civil and respectful. I have enjoyed our interactions so far. I hope it continues that way, sir.
I do get your humor, too.
Well... from my southern perspective and of course, not having a sarcastic bone in my body... I would like to say 2 things in response to this shameful self promotion of yours!
1) I truly am pleased that you can find humor within the world and yourself
2) I'm all for such self gratification.. if it means that a departure from 'Attacking' your peers, old ladies and innocent animals has been found, by you, to be more beneficial than just plain old attention seeking!
Goodness, I thought "3 replies? This is boring.."
Then I clicked the link.
Thanks for shedding light on my 'holier than thou' status.. lol
But I'm trying to get better because I love sarcasm but it's hard not to piss'em off with a single word.. that they usually didn't even place in the context correctly! LOL
And it's not the attention of the masses I seek.
It's more like brilliant people like you. [how's my charm doin?]
And the sarcastic bone that you don't have seems to be protruding from your skin...
Thanks for bringing 'self gratification' to the surface btw.. it makes me look so selfless.
You're Most Welcome Sir!
Aren't perceptions and perspectives wonderful...
Without the depth of such, thought provoking words would have little or no value to those who are able to respect and are capable of thinking! Irrespective of belief!
Well, often times in heated debates the attack on the idea is taken as an attack on self, which isn't so..
And they certainly are wonderful.. sometimes.. LOL
I've come to like people no matter what they believe, and it takes some work to get used to it..
But I consider them another one of me and that is how I try to keep it.
But I can be pretty pushy about perspective on topics now don't you worry! ::ahem::
Btw, I tried to read your profile, but my brain is like a tornado and I have a list of other people backed way up, behind the forum requirements of course, and I skimmed..
But I loved what I caught!
Be around to catch up soon in your little corner.

How do you procrastinate with your serious writing? What do you do instead?What obstacles do you put in your own way in order to put off your serious writing? How cunning are these delaying tactics? How destructive are they?

I started dating a guy about 8 months ago, and it seems that ever since then my one friend has been acting acting different towards me. She doesn't hand around me hardly ever, I always have to go to her. When I try to talk to her she hardly answers me and sometimes even ignores...

I think that I have a little, my major ones are:a) Fixing my hair about 20 times a day.b) I have to have any digital volume control on an even number, I can have the volume on 30 or 32 but not on 31.Do you have any compulsive instincts? I know that mine are pretty tame, I know some people with some...
