3. Why did you post that and why did I reply this way?

Just kidding you! I love this. It's thought-provoking.

I have had people answer a question with "Why do you want to know?" or else they answer a statement with "Why do you say that?" It sure makes you stop and think and it's usually a legitimate question. I keep forgetting to do that myself.

Here on DU there is so much vitriole and emotion, so I do try to ask for some clarification so I know what I'm dealing with. But rarely is it given. There's an assumption that we all know what others mean. But how can we know that if we don't ask?
