Do you disconnect from someone if they don't agree with you? Can you stay connections or friends when you don't see eye to eye on the issues?
If someone pisses off someone who is a friend or in your click, do you go the way of the herd? I know I must have irritated someone as a whole click of people have dropped from commenting on my articles awhile ago before the points reward system changed. I still would make the comment I made as I feel that person was wrong for doing what they did. If a whole group disagrees with me so be it. You can't please all the people all the time.
I often appreciated comments from people even if I don't agree with them as often they can give me a different view...or an understanding of why someone does not agree. There is a lot to learn from other people to understand why they think or feel the way they do. Agreeing or disagreeing should not be a basis for not being friends with someone. Often I appreciate someones honesty. Many times in life people agree with you rather than not offend you. To me if you are not attacking me, just what I said and my reasons, I may find you have a valid point. I know I am not perfect and I do make mistakes or I may not be informed on something.
Many times I do not get in discussions on things as there are many things I don't understand, like in politics. I had made a comment during the election over something the democratic party did and got my head handed to me by some democrats. They assumed I was a republican. I've been a registered democrat since I began voting in 1972. I am however married to a registered republican...and trust me, over the years we have learned to agree to disagree on politics.
Some people disconnect if it looks like you haven't been on gather for awhile. The thought is if the person comes back and they liked you, they will reconnect.
So what is your criteria for disconnecting?
