In Response To: Re: MARCUS GARVEY TOO (blessedflames)
When I write “YOU” or write your username in response to your post, then I mean YOU specifically. If you do not understand how and why generalizations are used, here is a tip. A generalization is what it is, a general observation, it cannot mean you specifically although it can include you.
I do speak in general terms about what I have observed on this board over time, and of people in general, without calling specific names, especially as many of these people are not posting on this board to defend themselves. Generalizations are useful to draw attention to a pattern without specifically ‘attacking’ anyone. Although we are all individuals, groups of people have patterns of behaviour, and generalizations are a way to highlight that.
You are trying to appear to be indignant and it is coming over contrived. I cannot have a direct confrontation with you, if that is what you are looking for, as you are not challenging anything I have posted. It seems you are fishing for a fight. Besides reading a few of your posts over the last few days, I cannot remember noticing you posting much of anything here.
I have noticed over the last few days how YOU react when you realize you are in error; you try to abandon the thread and hope it gets buried. So don’t look forward to I making any extra effort to reason in detail with you again. That is a waste of time.
If I see you with some poor conduct that was not previously challenged on the board, I will pick you up on it.
