Short-term Moratorium

    So a few days ago I wrote this snippet on another post:

    collegestuddMost people here are decent and just want to help. That speaks volumes of the community in this site. There are quite a few assholes everywhere, but most people are kind and just want equality for all regardless of their sexual orientation. There are all kinds of personalities and characters, and while guys here are always finding ways to bicker with each other about something, I think deep inside they are just good people with very deep-rooted beliefs they are willing to stand for. With the exception of very few, I would like to believe that even when guys here disagree and send each other verbal bombs and the occasional mean comment, they would all lend each other a helping hand if they found the other in need. At least this is what I'd like to believe. Call me naive, but I really do think most people are decent even when they disagree strongly about opinions. This belief I have also extends to most people out there as well. I know many of you don't think this is possible, but I do think that most gays are good people, most Christians are good people, most men and women are good people, most Muslims are good people, and so forth. There are, of course, bad apples in every group you can think of.


    It's very badly written, but at least it conveys my thoughts. So I figured that perhaps we could institute a moratorium on all RJ bickering and temporarily replace it with wishing everyone (including all your nemeses) a Merry Xmas. The moratorium would of course have to be brief, otherwise all the pent up desire to bicker would cause a disruption of the space continuum. icon_smile.gif If you don't celebrate Xmas, oh hell, just have and wish a Merry peace day or something. I'll start Merry Xmas to all! 10.gif

    No I think you're right... good people with strong beliefs. And in all honesty, that is something to be admired too... 'cuz if you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything, right?

    Even though some guys make me mad with what they say, I have respect for most of 'em. And in that spirit of respect, I wish the guys with whom I have butted heads on this site a happy holiday season.

    You said what I have been thinking for the past couple of weeks.
    The religion posts this month were excruciating, and didn’t show any “spirit" at all.

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    I wish everybody lots of hope, love and joy.

    Great idea. I'll participate even though I practice Buddhism.

    Ever notice that being especially nice around this time to store employees, wait staff, etc. really lifts their spirits.

    Sentiment is very much appreciated, especially considering the health care forums-so much posturing. How about we carry this forum OP's sentiment into 2010? Happy New Year all.icon_biggrin.gif
