Guys - please... no complaining about complaining. And no complaining about complaining about complaining. We are all beautiful snowflakes with our own opinions, etc, etc. That means we all get to have our own opinions!
Again, it's always safest just to put your own opinion out there and debate each other's opinions versus trying to talk about the person who has the opinion and making judgements on them. It's an easy trap to fall into. All of us do it now and again.
Now... there is one more thing I'd like to say... just for people to think about...
I think people should take a step back sometimes and think "How many times have I posted the same thing now?" "In how many threads?" "At what point do people just start mentally skipping my posts because they think they know exactly what I'm going to say?" I've had to do the same thing myself. I admire the passion some people have on this board. I really do. I share it in many ways. And I have fun debating. But there's a point that—if your true goal is change and not just "winning" a a debate/argument online—you really have to look at your presentation.
There's no rule against banging the gong over and over again. And sometimes, if we're very passionate about something, it's hard NOT to do that. We think sheer numbers of posts can make our opinion seem more important or change someone's mind. As if we just explain it enough times, we'll finally hit the right string of words that makes the other person see our point of view. But I do think it's worth considering whether it's having the effect you want. I think it's much more powerful to have a measured voice that speaks constructively than someone who is exaggerating for effect often. The latter starts to feel like the boy who cried wolf, and can be taken less seriously.
