beforewisdom Posted February 24, 2008 Share Posted February 24, 2008 Internet forums aren't always kind to people who know what they are talking about. Beforewisdom, I may have misread your quote, but to me it seems as if you're insinuating that people who disagree with you don't know what they're talking about. Not in this particular case, but I have had that happen to me in other places, though I was not referring to those situations either. My post was meant to be taken as face value to DV. There are many people on the internet who have pet beliefs about things that did not come from anything like researching what the known facts are. Even when egos and pissing contests are not involved I've noticed that enlightening people to the facts is often a thankless task. People will argue with you as a proxy for arguing with reality as they have more than practical concerns invested in their mistaken beliefs. As I have gotten older time and energy for learning new things has been more difficult to come by. I appreciate it when someone who knows what they are talking about bothers to speak up. I find the exchange of information rewarding and I try to let those people know that so they will not be chased away as I have seen happen. Again, none of this has anything to do with BD, only my appreciation for DV being willing to stick it out here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
