No lies, the faces are a part of us. We show each person a different part depending on the relationship. You do not act or speak the same way to your parents as you do to your closest friend. I assure you, that your parents know this unless they are naive, which I seriously doubt.
I will be bitchy, cranky, sweet, happy, kind, pain in the ass all at random times from now on. I am embracing my mentalpause until further notice. Viva lack of total control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is not a test,,, this is my life right now. Have a good day and please buckle up for safety reasons,, All those in high chairs, go in the back of the room.

Kris,

Behaving differently to different people is not always lie or masking. Different relations requires different treatment and that is necessary too.

Problem arises when one wants to take advantage by changing the behavior, or say onething in the open and does the opposte behind the close door; hyprocricy.

Like a husband and wife can be somewhat casual or even argue while behaving with each other, because their relation allows that. But, that same couple cannot be the same casul either with parents or their children, becasue parents deserve respect while children need caring and soft approach.

That is not masking and neither objectionable.

But, when a leader criticises postitution in the day and goes to them in the night, then it is masking or hyprocricy.
In the same way, if one does not use abusive and vulgar language normally, but does that on the net because anonymity allows it, it is double facing.

with love,

No, its not. They just have a safe anonymous outlet for that part of them. You too have a vulgar part wether you show it or not. You choose to inhibit it and expect all to inhibit theirs because of your sense of decorum.
I learned long ago that words are only weapons if you allow them to pierce your mind. They are just harmless farts in the wind otherwise.

Kris,

What do you mean by vulgar part? And, how is it pertinent with all this?
I do not feel any need to be vulgar, even if desire to hit anyone. That can be done remaning in the limits.

Secondly, your concept of safe outlet is wrong. words are not ineffective but influence people.
Life is all about control and discerning between good and bad. And, sooner ot later, repeated acts are converted into habit.

If a person is using indecent language 2-3 hours a day on the net, one day he will use that in his real life also. and, that will happen without any realization also.
Secondly, it creates an overall bad enviornment that affects all, even those, who are not habitual of that language.
Why should all suffer for giving one or some the safe passage?

with love,
sanjay

We cannot agree. I do not agree that words should have such power. The human should be more astute and independent. I would rather humans become immune to words. You however wish the control and prefer to keep it or so it seems. If words had less control over emotions then how much hate and fighting will remain? A child finds that saying a word gives it attention, good or bad, that child will use that word for the attention. A child will crave any attention good or bad. Giving words such power directs a person to continue. Ignore the bad praise the good and you direct the child. Of course this does not work for all. But, it does work and works for adults. When you become offended or emotional about words you give control to the word smith.

Kris,

If words have literally so inefftive on adults, why tobacco and liqior companies are not allowed to advertise via public discourse?
And, why people are warned or even banned even a imaginary world like ILP?
And, if you remember, you also had problem with some of the posts in the past?
The only difference between you and me was the degree of liberty.
Should i dig out those posts of your again?

Our enviornment necessarily affets us. There is no escape.Sometimes it may look that we are aware of this and would not fall in the trap but things use to permeate into our subconscious without realization. Yes, the quantity of the impact may differ in different cases, and that depends on the state of previous mindset of any individual.

That is why it is rightly said that one should keep good company and one can be judged by his company, while going by your perception that seems to be wrong.

with love,

Oh please do dig out my posts but, dig out the WHOLE conversation do not attempt to take it out of context. Do not leave out one iota of the entire discussion. Sure I play the game but, never not once have I been angry or hurt. Amused, hell yes. Because predictable people amuse. And hopefully they change, but rarely. So do so but only with the entire conversation, not just mine.

Sanjay, you already took my words out of context. The playing games was out of context. You chose only to comment on that fraction. Plu the other fragments.

But as per this thread, begs the question - does Arc. like the way in which she is evolving?lol

Bumpity bump

Question for zinnat:

If somebody joins ILP, and he's from a distant culture in which bunnies are offensive, should ILP ban the posting of bunnies for his sake?

That's pushing the limits. I'll let you off with a warning, since it's a grey area.
