12. That's a long time!
I don't post at DU, or anywhere, on weekends. At 6pm on Friday, the computer is turned off and it doesn't come on again until Monday morning. I still have my BlackBerry if the boss needs me, but I am DU free on the weekends. I find I really do need the time away.

I think I abhor that kind of behavior because I know I can be capable of it myself, and it is no less ugly and nasty when I do it... so I've made a real effort to mull things over before writing and be a kinder, gentler JuniperLea :D I think it's working because I felt sort of icky saying that to the poster... but I felt worse about LauraPMAD getting beat up for asking a question.

Something about anonymity, I think, brings out the worst in some of us. Worse still is when people bring this attitude back out into real life. When I felt like asking someone for a link, out loud, face to face, is when I realized I needed to make a clear distinction between the InterTubes and my life. Not my 'real' life... my life!

In short (yeah, right) I am trying to be the change I want to see in DU.
