Politics has become a blood sport these days.
The idea that somone who disagrees with you is a dunderhead is one thing.
The idea that they are a bad person is entirely another.
In your social media wanderings be VERY careful about casting aspersions on anyone.
Particularly if you're doing so cause you think I'll agree with you.
And if you attack or vilify a friend of mine, even one I disagree with, and think needs a wet noodle to the noggin to dislodge a couple ideas I think are lunacy, our friendship trumps our disagreement.
In other words, never assume people who are disagreeing with each other are sworn enemies. My best arguments are with sworn friends.
Vilify a pal of mine, include me in the tweet, and you are #blocked #ignored #forgotten.
My guess is that you don't want that to happen.
On the other hand, if you do want me to ignore you, that's the sure fire way to do it.
I value the civility we have here on this blog. I admire the restraint all of you show in keeping the conversation elevated, not descending to name calling or other forms of ad hominim attacks.
I am incredibly proud that "don't read the comments" is the LAST thing someone would say about our blog here (and I mean ours, yours, mine, all of us, even that rascal Felix Buttonweezer)
I loathe personal attacks.
Pretending everyone feels that way is a good guideline for your social media interactions.
