Response to Major Nikon (Reply #9)

21. it's hate. Hate, hate, and more hate.

A lot of hate. Hate is hate is hate.

Like the song says, "aint no time to hate"; life's too short.

Beyond that, though, I guess the truth is we really never know what motivates people. Or where they're coming from.

One of the things that has bothered me, around here, is seeing really nasty stuff be thrown at people -like some of the folks in this group- for no good reason at all.

Personally, I'm making a conscious effort to try to be more understanding- not of hate; or bloggers like this one-- but just in general.

I've been feeling bad about a hidden post I had a little while ago. I made a snarky, flip comment without knowing or understanding the person's backstory. I was actually on my way back to edit or delete it, because even with what little I knew it came out meaner than I intended- but before I did a jury hid it, and rightfully so.

It was not the worst thing that's ever been said on DU, but it was mean. I don't know if the person would want to hear it from me, but I do owe that member an apology.
