[REBOL] Technically Advanced, but Socially... ?
From: acme::wco::com at: 15-Dec-2000 17:21
Years ago, while realizing newfound power of dialog with members of large
email groups, I would say things (in email) that implied that I was smart
and correct, while implying (very slyly, sometimes) that others were
completely wrong or stupid. Partly, I think I must have been hooked on the
adrenaline rush I got when reading how excited or upset other people could
get when they reacted.
It took a while for me to get thru that stage, but fortunately I had some
good friends that helped me.
When I saw someone else (obviously intelligent) on this list do the same
flame-attracting stuff I once was good at, I instinctively deleted all of
his emails, and almost made a kill filter for him. Then I had second
thoughts, and am now experimenting with what I hope is a more positive
solution. I'm spending as little adrenaline on this as possible (or none),
and will try to spend no more time than it took to write this.
Thanks for reading! Hope I didn't waste too much of your time. No response
