It’s amusing really when the herd is on the field chewing cud. They sure gotta a lot to say in their coffee klatch but when faced with a real person they skidattle in fear of the cattle prod.
Social Forums breed herd mentality. Believe me when I say, I’ve had entire threads, groups, and wall discussions about my person. At closer examination it’s a bunch of herd animals projecting their internal inefficiencies. Insulting a person’s exterior is not the same thing as dealing with the person’s interior. It’s the same old hat, “Sin Jones you are fat, ugly, have a big nose, and think you are so great! “
As a matter of fact I do think I’m pretty great. Any person that lives insecurely and feels slighted when ridiculed with such childish arguments isn’t exactly earning my respect. If you have an issue with me be direct and WITH ME. Otherwise, you are just yapping away and showing yourself for what you really are all the while puffering and peacocking like you are some tough guy on the Internet. *finger twirl*
Anyone familiar with my person would KNOW that I am always direct. I am certainly not going to address every personal insult, it’s counter productive and a waste of time. I don’t expect everyone to find me attractive or likable, and equally I might find you less than desirable according to my personal preferences. I can however find qualities in people I am attracted to like a moth to flame. You might have a stellar sense of humor and razor sharp wit, I find that very attractive. I find weakness and self-pity to be quite ugly.
I rarely find myself adversary to the herd but will at times blow the horn and get those cows moving. Otherwise, they are mucking it up for the rest of us on a grander scale. Sacrificial Cows, I say.
A formidable adversary is one of an equal or higher skill set. One can be adversarial to just about anything, it doesn’t mean it’s worth it. We all have limited time in this life, and we should spend it wisely. If you have ever found yourself at the end of my blade, then you will certainly remember it, and perhaps you may still be lamenting over it. Get over it. Get over yourself.
That’s my advice.
