    Well, please read the following:

    I can't think of one person on this board who hasn't taken a slap down at least once -- not one. I don't think there is one person on this board who hasn't gotten upset at something said to them; you can ask any of them.
    Now, there are two ways to go about dealing with this:
    Get upset and do nothing (but stay upset).
    Or man up and face the music, by trying to understand just what it is that's causing other's to react the way they are and do something to rectify the situation.

    I think the second response is the better one of the two, but it isn't my choice.

    If you choose the first response, ok; probably won't solve a damn thing imho.
    If you choose the second and decide to face up to your critics, then you've gone a long way to earning a lot of respect. I know that if you were to do that I would at least be willing to hear you out and step into your corner; I'm pretty sure others would be willing to do so too, IF you were to hear them out and maybe see where they are coming from and rectify the situation.

    And if you were to choose the second response, you just might find that the folks on this board a little more inviting and supportive than you might think.

    Just something to think about.

    I know you meant that in only the sweetest and most loving of ways ET *!*!*!* *!*!*!*

    She'd better take the offered olive branch -- I'm really destroying my reputation as slumlord of IDGFF with this.

    She says we are ignorant. Hmmm she needs to look it up in the dictionary.

    Absolutely what?
    That you meant what you said in only the most loving of ways (which I know you did ^.^.^).
    Or that I was really destroying my reputation (which I am, because I'm such a nice mother frakking person)?

    Ah, I ain't a skeered of a little urine and excrement...I'm a freaking slumlord, remember?
