If there is zero intent to reciprocate (play by the same rules) it's a powerplay.
Yes, it is. It's very noticeable to me when people play a "higher power" card as if they are a voice of some higher stance -- a deceptive denial that they are thick in the stew themselves. It is a lie and it is unbalanced. From what I've seen, lies are usually behind imbalance...and further lies are manufactured to maintain the imbalance. People who are willing to do that for a political or religious agenda, have stopped seeing how full of lies they are. They're rabid. Wild-eyed, drooling... evading and grasping in service to an agenda and/or ego because THAT has become their Lord... their false idol. It is all they "know". They shake their fist and sputter drunken babble. Anyone who doesn't share their stony gaze and imbalanced mentality is an enemy.

Humankind seems so unevolved in certain ways. Amazing how we can accomplish so much technologically, and be so widely deficient in self-awareness and balanced discernment. So addicted to the lies of others! ADDICTS OF INSANITY. (Hey, that's a good name for a band!)

Since Greta now seems to be the topic of the wounded egoist, then it boils down to this.

One blow to a wise horse.
One word to a wise woman.

Greta demonstrated the capacity to hear that, without being told.
She just needed one word.
"Be nice." (two words.)
Subsequently, she was nice.

A million words won’t satisfy a stupid horse.


Some folks on this board have a particular M.O.
It's not a problem for me, but maybe more words will stop the squealing of the wounded ego.

Some folks like to gang up and attack the person, rather than discuss philosophy.

Usually, the content involves religion or politics, which is referenced only to imply that the person is some kind of … whatever. Something pejorative.

Simply look at the past threads of Nick_A that haven’t been erased.

You’ll see some disgusting examples of attacking the person, many festooned with playful emoji’s.

So, the inherent meaning in the suggestion to be nice, for anyone with the capacity to see, as Greta demonstrated with actions and not words, is, don’t start the usual games.

It's not an order. She can do what she must.

The message was a response to Greta’s first posting to me, which was personal and did not involve the content of the topic, and, she appeared roughly the same time as Lacewing’s negative observations about the person, rather than content.

They are two of those who would pile onto Nick_A, personally.

I don’t ever see conservatives, or people discussing religious content, behave this way.

Thus the conclusions drawn about Leftists in general, as derived from anecdotal evidence demonstrated by Leftists on more than one occasion.

It’s not a snowflake thing. It’s wading through irrelevant crap directed at the person, in an attempt to discuss content with intelligent people. The crap buries sincere discussions.

So, so as not to be hoisted by my own petard and bury the content, which is what would happen to Nick by folks pissing all over his politeness, I have been known to speak the language of folks accustomed to discussing the person, and not the topic, and address such folks exhibiting that behavior according to the nonsense they spew, in doing so.

For those such as Greta, one word will do.

Stupid horses that require a million words, and that's not enough, aren't going to get a million words, usually. They get what they understand.

That is the situation on this board.

Some folks deal with content.

Some folks behave like moronic idiots and attack, rather than address content.

I know at least one person these gifts of words will be wasted upon.

8 pages of justifying WHY you should never apologize and I am the egomaniac? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So let me end this with addressing the false premise on which you built your house of cards.
Smart people, who are mindful and aware never have to apologise.
When the shit hits the fan and something goes wrong apologies are empty. They can only be a response to two things: 1) an admission of guilt, or 2) an admission of a lack of maturity.
This is called a false dichotomy.

Naturally, our spineless zero-integrity, insecure wanker would use a false premise to justify his position.

The missing THIRD option is: smart, mindful and aware people apologise when they recognise their mistakes.
Because smart, mindful and aware people know they aren't perfect and mistakes happen.

Apology is not an admission of "guilt". That's playing the blame-game. It's focusing on the past, not the future.
Apologies are admissions of learning. Admission that you recognize where you can make a different choice next time you find yourself in the same situation.

You think you are perfect, you never make mistakes and therefore you need not apologise? Sounds like you are over-compensating for something...

Harmful mentality that...

No ego attachment to brag about.

Just fact.

One's person's "facts" are another's lying-by-omission.

The ego is the part that doesn't care to understand why the above is true.
