Man, the things I miss when I go to sleep for the night. LaVieEnRose apologizes, zeroturbulence insults me and the thread turns into a clapping gif contest.
LaVie I do have to say one thing in your favor is that you are sincere. For all that I have disagreed with you, even when you paint whole groups of people with your broad brush, I have never gotten the impression you were just throwing out arguments to antagonize. You actually fully believe everything you say.
And yes I will no doubt disagree with you in the future. But at least it's an honest disagreement. I'd rather have people honestly disagree with me than lying people telling me I'm right any day.
As for the spleen venting, don't worry about it. I work at a fast food factory, a stressful environment, and people vent their spleens all the time. I'm used to a little venting. Shoot, sometimes I vent a bit myself, but usually I vent to one friend and I know that person won't tell anybody.
