    Re: Comportment question

    Hummm, interesting question. I guess I'll be the first one to admit that I'm not proud of everything I've posted here. Overall though, I'm pretty much the same person. I don't talk politics much with my RL friends because I know how I can get.

    Re: Comportment question

    Im pretty much the same here as in real life. My nature is to be very brash. Product of my upbringing-Im neither proud of it nor ashamed of it. I know who and what I am and I am good with it. I am a pretty fierce advocate...it can get ugly when I have to deal with cops or doctors and their attitudes towards certain patients and victims. Thats usually tempered by how readily they call me in other situations. Its funny...in person I have most people believing that I am a bleeding heart liberal for the population I work with and the time (professional and personal) that I put into those communities. At the end of the day I think most people want the right things...we just have radically different ideas on how to achieve those things.

    I definitely could (and probably should) temper some of my responses here (believe it or not I delete far more than I post...sometimes it helps just to bang it out). But then...thats not what this place is for me.

    To those I have truly offended I feel bad and should apologize. The funny thing is, in the year or so I have been posting on this site I have never not once walked away angry. Sometimes I walk away laughing my ass off...but never angry. I doubt many feel the same way, but I could sit down, BS, and have a beer with anyone here. I could NOT talk POLITICS in that environment with anyone here...but then I seldom do outside of here.

    For the most part I wouldn't really care who read what I wrote here. I would feel a bit of a twinge if my folks read what I say here but I would defend myself if necessary. For the most part we agree on a lot of things. But there are a few that we don't. And I don't like argueing with my folks. Seems too disrespectful to me.

    Some folks in my offline life might well say that "you chickens" might feel uncomfortable with how I am IRL as oppose to how I am online.

    Re: Comportment question

    Eh, what you see is what you get. The way I write is the way I talk, because I can type as fast as I can jabber IRL. I've written a post or two in anger in my life that I wasn't particularly proud of and had to apologize for, but overall I'm not ashamed of what I write on line. Well... I guess I wouldn't want my neighbors to read some of my posts from the place that must not be mentioned, because I'm a bit rowdier there than I am IRL.

    I'm the same person every day, all the time. I consider it a matter of honor not to say anything to someone on the Internet that I wouldn't say to their face.
