This kind of stuff tears communities apart.
I doubt it...
No one would be THAT immature, surely?
I don't really care, it was just a debate. I think people are overreacting when they say it's an argument, really...
...Then again I haven't been paying too much attention.
Thats my point. People over react.
People are immature.
I appreciate that you wanted people to chill and not get to a point where they felt personally insulted. You also stated that you don't have strong feelings about this topic, but understood that some people did.
I am one of those people. The 9-11 attack was not simply a regrettable event in human history for me. I'm still friends with families who lost loved ones that day and who somehow haven't learned how to mature and get over it. There's more, but you've already stated you don't care, so we'll leave it at that.
I totally get that for those people who did not experience what I did, what my town and county did, and who want to discuss the orchestrator of that day, that they will not have the baggage that I do. To them, it's all academic.
And you raised a flag, which was good, to point out that we are all coming from different points, and maybe we should just accept that we feel as we do and others feel (or not feel at all) as they do. fine
And then you totally blew it by to referring to feelings such as mine as an over-reaction, as immature, as the antics of a keyboard warrior.
Again, I don't expect people to understand what my experience is with this and why I'm just glad that the asshole is dead. If I trounced on anyone, I am sorry. But I suggest that when you realize someone is impassioned about a subject, especially as one as volatile as this, minimizing someone else's perspective, and/or judging it, IS insulting.
