You raise an excellent point, Jn. It is dangerous to rely too much on the statements and conduct of the most vocal and visable representatives of any defined group of people, because the very qualities that make those people the most vocal and visable representatives of the group are often liable to...

Thank you, Teremia! I was just going to enter the thread and ask for two things at this point: (a) that we agree, and agree without reservation, that those who have used the word parasite have not intended negative connation (except tp, who who was expressing an intensely personal view that is prob...

Look at the word "n*gger", which we have banned (sorry for using it like that - I hope it's ok this once for the purpose). Apparently, the possibility that someone uses the word without any negative connotations didn't change our minds about it. Personally, I really think it's possible th...

It is the re characterization of people's words that I am concerned about. There's nothing wrong with disagreeing with what people say, even strenuously. But disagree with what people say, not what you say people say. Faramond, please don't leave the thread. Let's work on this together. Even if we d...

I would say this whole debate is a recipe for disaster, it always is... Yes, I agree it is a difficult subject. All the more reason why it is important to discuss it. And all the more reason to make every effort to do in a respectful fashion, without insulting those who you disagree with (the "...

What Whistler said. In particular, have a care about recharacterizing what people say into your own words. That is a recipe for disaster.

I wish the country as a whole and its lawmakers could have this kind of discussion. We'd be a lot farther ahead on this issue than we are right now. Jn, I think the first obstacle to that happening are the labels that are always used to define the two 'sides'. On the one hand, we have people who ar...

Or learning to play the piano really well? What is the practical application, beyond playing the piano, of spending two or more hours a day practising the piano?
The making of beautiful music that other people can listen to? That seems like a pretty good practical application to me. :)

This discussion has settled down very nicely, and I couldn't be more pleased. I just want to remind everyone to try to be as careful and precise as possible, and to try to avoid inflammatory words as much as you can. As we all know, this is about as sensitive a subject as there is these days, and it...

Beautiful pictures, all. :love: Continuing my subliminal campaign, these are both of Mt. Tamalpais, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, and one of my very favorite places: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/Voronwe_the_Faithful/hr3998x353x265.jpg http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/Voronwe_the_...
