Topic: Blending Question and More (5 msgs / 133 lines)
1) From: David Martin
Jeff,
Have you considered the tone of your own posts?  After re-reading
(with an open mind) the original messages in this thread several
times, I'm still not sure why you were so offended, but to be honest I
found your own postings to be a bit neurotic. In particular, your
second post was full of statements such as:
    "...mainly I want to learn something...",
    "...learning is my goal...",
    "...mostly I'm trying to learn something...",
    "...I don't have time to read a book...",
    "...it would be nice to learn something...",
    "...in the hope that someone can teach me something...";
but when two people took the time to reply, you lashed out with:
  "Thanks for your input. I don't have to be told anymore that i don't
know what I'm doing, folks. I already know that."
Maybe the responses came across as condescending, but I'm sure they
weren't intended to be. You could have just ignored them. Why all the
drama?

It might help if I explained that I have a severe case of Post Traumatic 
Stress Disorder, and have been homebound and very isolated for seven 
years now. Obviously I don't have a life, and I am probably a lot more 
"sensitive" than others might be. But I honestly feel there's an 
important point to be made here, which ultimately and hopefully can be 
of benefit. I know I'm not delusional, and I know it's not just a huge 
figment of my imagination. But if I've made it a bigger deal than 
someone else thinks it deserves to be, and offended the process, I do 
sincerely apologize. But that doesn't mean that if I feel I've become a 
target I won't respond. I honestly have very little else to do! Pitiful, 
ain't it? ;-)

My posting was really harsh, and never should have been sent at all.
(I should have taken my own advice.) I apologize.

"...this is just the way he is. "
I respectfully resemble that. If I haven't offended anyone in several
decades of not trying, it isn't my lack of trying not to. At least I
hope not. -ro

This is a multipart message in MIME format.
First let me say that I'm sorry to hear about your difficulties. Secondly I
feel compelled to state that your affliction does not entitle you to berate
anyone who you feel does not meet your standards in communication. I can
assure you there is(was) no malicious behavior directed toward you, your
post, or your knowledge of the subject.
If you feel it necessary to reply, remember that you have asked others in
the forum to accept you despite your situations. It seems likely that you
should do the same.
