Offended For A 3rd Party

Postby TreeGuy » Dec 31st, 2017, 4:03 pm

Have we really gotten to the point where we are becoming offended on behalf of someone else? Case in point:

“The topic is "poor driving habits", the creator of the topic was kaitlyn. She sorta can dictate which driving actions she wants to discuss, can't she ?

Anyone other than kaitlyn could be accused of being off topic...

Is there a rule somewhere that if a person wants to talk about a short fall in some action, in this case driving, that one can only discuss one area of that short fall ?

It's not like the topic was "Driving on Snowy Mountain Passes" and then she started introducing speeding on the floating bridge.

I didn't see anything wrong with the contents of her post ?

"I'll take unreasonable for $500 Alex"”


Good Lord.

Who else has a voice in their head that says things that takes an extreme filter to control?

Sometimes there is a glitch in the filter and everything flows through occasionally?

Those of us with this gift are going to find more and more that we are offending people.

Fortunately most of with this gift don’t care that you are offended.

We might even enjoy it a little bit.....okay a lot.

Happy New Year to everyone! May each of us just lighten up a bit in 2018!

My filters were clogged with "stuff" so I threw
them away.

Interesting exercise in human nature.

TreeGuy, you quote me, but didn't attribute the quote to me.

You chose your words for this topic "Offended For a 3rd Party". I guess alleging that I am somehow "offended" by your post that criticized the contents of the initial post under the topic "poor driving habits"

I took notice that the topic was created by a person who had joined Castanet Forum in June 2008 and including this post has posted 5 times.

You were of the OPINION that the post was "all over the place". The topic being poor driving habits, somehow should not contain multiple points :
    - Closing dangerous mountain passes when poor conditions exist
    - Poor driving during snowy conditions in Kelowna
    - Suggestion for the implementation of photo radar
    - Comment that photo radar may solve a problem with speeding on the floating bridge

You chose, I gather in an attempt to be humours, to illustrate your concern with a parody of the TV show Jeopardy.

You expressed your OPINION.

Your attempt at humor in my OPINION bordered on ridicule.

I subsequently posted that I felt, the creator of the topic seemed to me to have created content that was not inconsistent with the topic she had created. That was my OPINION. I didn't necessarily agree with her positions and points, but didn't see anything at all out of line with the content verses the topic.

You have now created a topic addressing that I had an OPINION different from yours ?

So, apparently it's OK to express the OPINION that the content of a post did not follow the topic of the post, but it is not OK, in fact it shows I was "Offended", in expressing my OPINION that the content of the post did follow the topic.

Interesting.
