Thank you Alli for what you said, it means
a lot to me that you would say that. Above
all I would like to be in a community of thinkers
who don't necessarily think homogeneously but
who are TOLERANT of others. I have definitely
not been very tolerant of Fred because I have
that "Assyrian temper" (if that exists) and
I let myself get offended when me makes fun
of me. (remember how you reacted when that
one Chaldean guy made fun of you??)
It really really pisses me off when I want to
talk to someone on a plain discussion level
and someone brings in emotion-laden words and
hurtfulness. I know no one said this forum is only
unemotive discussion, it can be drama and sarcasm
and joks and talking about movies....but i don't
know why to me it just seems so important that
we respect each other and not use our words
so hurtfully or in a denigrating fashion.

I KNOW fred has been insulted by lots of people,
esp. those who do not agree with what he says.
But i think the paradigm would be YOUR behavior,
where you are respectful and tolerant of people
with whom you agree or disagree with.
