[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 expected. --Ken. ___________________________________ ___________________________________ Ah, you hate Microsoft too! So comrade, ven do vee plan to defect?
