           - Sometimes that is the smartest thing to do  proud2BlibKansan   Aug-29-10 09:49 PM   #84 
              - No, it doesn't. Not only do bullies think they "won" in that situation, which encourages them to  bobbolink   Aug-29-10 09:55 PM   #88

     - I would say that's a pretty accurate observation.  bobbolink   Aug-29-10 08:44 PM   #81 
     - I disagree  proud2BlibKansan   Aug-29-10 09:47 PM   #83 
        - Then you are free to ignore these threads, aren't you?  bobbolink   Aug-29-10 09:53 PM   #85 
        - They can read them, and I can comment on them.  donco6   Aug-29-10 09:54 PM   #87 
        - Commenting is one thing. Demanding they not be posted is entirely different.  bobbolink   Aug-29-10 09:58 PM   #92 
           - See, you commented, I commented, everyone's happy.  donco6   Aug-29-10 10:09 PM   #97

     - Please explain why it's "off-putting."  Amerigo Vespucci   Aug-29-10 05:54 PM   #69 
     - I seriously doubt anyone gives a shit.  donco6   Aug-29-10 09:54 PM   #86 
        - And I respect your right to not give a shit and to not elaborate  Amerigo Vespucci   Aug-30-10 11:34 AM   #142 
        - Well the sheer number of recs, plus the spirit of debate shows evidence to the contrary  MrScorpio   Aug-30-10 06:02 PM   #152 
           - And rules make us even freer! . . . er . . . wait a minnit. n/t  donco6   Aug-30-10 06:37 PM   #161
