    Comportment question

    Would you be uncomfortable if anybody other than "us chickens" saw how you talk on this message board? Would you feel like you had to explain yourself? Would you be fine, because how you are here is how you are everywhere?

    I pretty much handle myself and talk IRL the same way I do here. Except with a lot less "editing."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Ditto...I'd say my comments here are better stated.

    Same. Which is not to say that I haven't had a slip or three. By and large, I wouldn't mind if anybody I knew swung through here.

    None of your options really fit. I am not just like this away from the message board, in that I don't talk politics nearly as much. I am not however at all ashamed of my posts here and keep trying to talk family members and acquaintances into joining.

    Right - but the subject matter wasn't the point. It was comportment.

    I don't see how where I park my car has anything to do with how I post.

    Re: Comportment question

    I'm not allowed to talk politics at work, and my wife agrees with me on most things, so if I want to blow off political steam, I come here.

    Being smart-ass is my natural tendency, but I've toned it down considerably over the years. I've even toned it down since I started posting more here.

    Those I've worked with for years always seem suprised to learn I'm conservative - tho for the life of me I don't know why. Aside from that, no, I don't think I would feel a need to explain my DP posts.

    I'm a bigger jerk here.

    I'd actually be more uncomfortable meeting someone from here IRL.

    I don't joke around as much at work and I don't ever talk about politics, so there may be a possible issue.
