Thick skin = say what you will without fear of being hated, especially when you feel your opinion matters (politically).
It also means having the ability to take the heat and roll with it.

And name calling is bad juju.

Whether anyone will admit it or not, that's what hurts the most.

Even when it's just words.

I do hope this works as I have limited my time of late just because of this errr
sickness. Plain

And some of the foul language has to stop. IMHO it is dragging PW down.

The foul language (I've been called sensitive for pointing it out) is, for some, a replacement for ALL CAPS when screaming at someone. A wise old gentleman told me that when you resort to bad language, you've run out of worthwhile things to say. I've found this to be true more often than not, and is also an indication that the abuser is lacking in language skills. JMHO, and now I'll take the heat for my opinion, and will probably be told I'm a #$*(&%$#*()*)*#$&(&%&$#((*#*$**(%#*(%*#)*))()**#$* )#$(*Q)(%#%($&$+#. But that's OK, I just consider the source.

Yes.
Considering the source is wise.
For example...

Just curious please , please, please don't get all irate because I'm asking this not to be $@#* (sorry couldn't resist). If we are all adults here or at least kids playing at it why not just allow the F word or whatever instead of hiding it by changing the "U" to a "V"? We know what it is. If not ban ANY of that stuff. I'm not saying I haven't been guilty of it but I do try to avoid it.

The board started out as a family friendly place. that's why we hide things with a spoiler
Spoiler
that might be offensive. and one can get bogged down in foul language to where its nothing but a cuss match.
just my opinion since arriving here.

Seems to be that way anyhow. But O.K. here is something else I've wondered about (again I'm not asking it to cause a mutiny but because I'm curious like a monkey) just for example if someone says: obviously fake quotes
Quote:
Hey Topcat you are a stinky monkey
that is flaming. However if someone says:
Quote:
Republicans are stinky monkeys
one post after I've said something like I'm proud or like being a Republican. That's not flaming? Once again I don't want to cause trouble but I do get confused and want to know where I stand and why?
