JT, you are such a man.....and I'm sure your pretty wife will concur. Please allow her to slap you upside the head for me too.
I don't remember specifically the other thread - but like Utopian Raindrops, I read all your threads.....first. I like you, your sense & your humor. But you sure do miss on women sometimes.
1. At least for me....I do NOT appreciate anybody posting my words for other people to comment on, particularily if negatively. Like "man, that is one stupid woman." So if this woman was just reading here, and not comfortable defending her viewpoint on our forum (and I wonder why).......she MIGHT be irritated. She's basically in hiding, and you put her public, with no defense, in her opinion, imho.
You might want to rethink that stategy in the future. Like, when in school, a teacher reads a private note from a student to the class, and the writer is sitting there..........and other people start commenting on the structure of the note, the thoughts, the writer, the stupidity of the background....yada, yada. And the secret writer is just sitting there.....steaming, not wanting, or can't at the moment, come forth to defend their statements. Or realize their statements can't hold - but human ego is bruised.
2. She didn't attack your arguments - she attacked you. Well, really, she did it the crappy way, with a little knife inflicting as many small wounds to your ego that she could. Some people do that - and a *few* women are infamous for their capabilities to inflict pain.
3. She wounded your male ego, your honor, your concern for her, your ethics, your morals, and your dignity. And she got back at you for posting her email. But she stayed away from your logical arguments.
But, her email didn't say she thoroughly disgreed with you....she just MAY agree......after she adjusts her own ego. It's hard letting go, and we all know it. People have died & killed for the sake of their ego.
And you better come back & visit - you are appreciated! So get a good teeshirt out of your "chester drawers" - and take your smart lady out for fun before you're too tired when school starts.
