I'm flattered you are worried about my well being. I don't take the contrary opinions personally. Knowing I am a political minority doesn't bother me. I certainly don't let any disagreements affect my feelings on the rest of the board or my fondness for anyone because we disagree.pktrekgirl wrote:
Yeah...and I have to admit feeling a bit bad for you, Chris, in those political threads. Seems like there are alot more liberal leaning folks here than conservative leaning folks....and sometimes, I'm AFRAID to disagree with you, because you are about the only one I ever disagree with...and I don't want it to appear like we are piling on.
I like to debate about politics...but I DON'T like doing it where it's like 12 against one. Then it feels less like debate and more like piling on.
There have been things I have different opinions on and I try (and think I have succeeded) in stating my opinion or where I think one may err in a way to be clear without being heavy handed about it. (I do my utmost to be tactful.) Sometimes I don't chime in as I think the tone of a thread may not make it worth the effort. There are some things I don't mind debating but seldom am I looking for an argument. That's not my nature.
