A couple of lessons on basic human interaction you would do well to learn:
1. When you agressively target something using a negative connotation it WILL be taken as an insult. It doesn't matter how much you try and explain it away or how many times you change the subject. It will still be taken as an insult.
2. When you imply something without offering immediate clarification it WILL be taken as what you meant. It doesn't matter how much you try and explain it away or how many times you change the subject. It will still be taken as what you meant.
Just so I'm clear, I'm not taking a stab at you or anything, but it would serve you well to remember both of these points, especially dealing with forums (where clarification is always hard to come by), and even more so when you're dealing with people who volunteer abnormally large amounts of their time and effort to give you a free product.
Yes, speak your mind and make your point, but do so as clearly and pragmatically as possible so that people will look beyond implications and implied insults. One of the beauties of open source is that you have the power to create something. If everybody thinks your idea is crazy, then you still have the freedom to create and implement that idea on your own terms. It's within your power to show to the world how good of an idea it is that you have.
I don't insult people, I just tell things like they are and if people are insulted then they need to deal with their inner demons causing their problems.
Let me tell you something that you will do well in life to understand taken from a great man I know, a man that was a professional airline pilot for 20 years. He made me realize what separates the little people from the big, meaning, not those as more significant, one over another, because we are all special in our own ways, but what separates those from who can achieve and those that don't, haven't got it in them. This is because little people let the little things in life bother them and carry their baggage around. Then this man told me this, when I get into a plane and fly it with 200 people with their life in my hands, I better know how to shake the little things off and wipe my feet before I get into that cockpit to fly because if my head isn't on right I can get them all killed.
By saying what you are saying and then numerically listing them you are making it look like you are taking things personal and real men don't, real men can get in each other's faces and have it out, and then in the end shake and hug and be buddies.
Did you watch the American Presidential candidates last year go at each other and yet in the end they shook hands, had respect and friendship for each other, they didn't take it serious or get insulted, they took it like adults that just listened without preconceived notions like you're throwing back at me.
By doing what you did, you're just patronizing me and making assumptions over the post, why? Because like I said you are looking at things in a negative perspective, which is common in most people, most people tend to see the negative side to everything.
To be insulted is to be childish, an adult with a lack of character.
SO are we adults here or children? But then in this day and age I see adults that act like children...
So let's all lighten up, wow I said something was bloated, WOW harsh words, LOL...
CHILL MY MAN, no one is insulting anything, if anything you are insulting me and belittling my intelligence, trying to give me a lesson in life...
So let's all chill and be adults because I never once cast stones and words at anyone, in this post, you're looking TO DEEP into it, you're being to deep here and there's nothing deep to any of this, LOL...
LAUGH FOR GOSH SAKES HA HA!
