There are a lot of usages in the UK e.g. lift, loo, lorry that are different in American English (elevator, bathroom, truck).

Topic: Personal attacks in heated discussions. Acceptable, or not?
Posted: 23 Apr 2016 10:58

I completely agree that there are unpleasant members on Lush. Just as there are unpleasant people every day in our lives. It's a natural order of things. No good without bad. No light without dark. The best way to deal with those members you don't like is not to deal with them. At some point they will have burned every bridge and there won't be anywhere else for them to go. If a troll gets fed they will stay until the food runs out.

'nuff said. Back to my shadows.

Agreed. I would like to add to that. Remember that you are unlikely to convince someone who disagrees with you by insulting them. They may be as adamant in their position as you are in yours. If they remain entrenched in their view after hearing your logical argument, accept the stalemate and walk away. It is not always necessary to have the last word. It is the impulse to keep responding that feeds those who are trolls. Discourse in the public arena will likely reveal who is right.

Now I will join Warlock in the shadows.

Recommended Read A New Discovery

Monday morning. Susan awoke and found herself alone in bed. Michael, her husband, had gotten up very early and gone off to the airport to catch a flight for a business trip. Susan stretched across the width of the bed and thought that she was missing him already. They had been married ten years and still had sex often. She reasoned that this was because they maintained their curiosity about...

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” ― Oscar Wilde Ted felt a surreal calm settle over him as he made the short walk to the deli. The shock of Becca's appearance and the torrid sex they had just shared in the garage left him feeling as if he were having an out of body experience.

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” ― Oscar Wilde Ted grimaced as a grey SUV followed its blinker into the lane ahead. “Son of a bitch!” he muttered as he glanced into his side-view mirror. He'd had at least a quarter mile of open pavement ahead of him and now he had to cut into the right lane to pass the slower vehicle. The engine's soft...

“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” ― Oscar Wilde Ted closed the door and breathed a sigh of relief as the chaos of the outside world was replaced by the engineered comfort of his luxury sedan.

Recommended Read Saturday Morning

I love the weekend for many reasons, but foremost is morning lovemaking. We are both busy with work all week so this is not a weekday thing unless we wake up early. Even then it is not conducive to either inhibition or romance to be having sex with one eye on the clock. Even for a hit-and-run quickie. David and I both like staying in bed and recovering slowly rather than rushing to shower,...

Editor's Pick Stacey's Choice

It was one of those perfect June days that we wait for all winter. The sun was warm, the sky a clear and intense blue without a cloud in sight. It felt like slipping into a warm bath rather than the sauna that the heat and humidity of August would bring. There were even people out sailing at midday this Friday as Stacey gazed out of her office window toward Lake Ontario. They were starting...
