I had to take two days to convince him not to turn me off Gather, let me explain the situation.
Someone called me a horriable name after I made a comment on their post. Will not go into which one, yet I made a comment and this person turn that comment into totally the opposite of what it was to mean, then turn around and call me vaulger names and got away with it publicly.
This upset him, stating about how that is slanderizim and all. He could not understand how folks could be so ignorant or high on them self to be blinded by the truth. He thought Gather was a good place for one to express one opinion, not to take that opinion and make you look ugly.
I had to tell him, I ignore this bull and let it roll off my sleeve, because I am the better one who know what I said is just my opinion and not have the attitude of I am right and you are wrong. I am better then that, and said if folks want to read only want they want to read then so be it. As longs as I know I am in control of my opinion and no one can take that away from me.
I told him I didnt want to let the evil of Gather win, for I would lose and those important around me would lose. That is not right either.
I guess what I am saying if you want to print evil garbage about other, then go ahead and lower yourself to the devil level. I myself will still be here and comment on anything I want, and hopefully those important enough to take my opinion as just a opinion, no one is perfect, and that is ok.
