I know that on here we may not see eye to eye when it comes to certain subjects,and I just wanted to say that sometimes in my posts I find it hard to explain what I want to say...Im speaking spanish day in day out and when it comes to getting graphic and being understood in a written conversation in english,I sometimes find it really hard to make people understand what I mean without sounding rude (I sometimes read back on my own posts and think "wow,did I really write that!?" lol,so I am sorry about that).
I just wanted to make sure that no one was taking anything I say in any of my posts on here personally.
I can totally disagree with someone in a debate,but that doesnt mean I wont get along with that same person else where kwim? (I dont hold grudges and I hope no one holds them against me either:I understand we all have different points of view)
I just wanted to say that,because although I love a good debate,I really dont want to make any enemies on here I take some getting used to,but Im really not as bad as I sound in my posts lol.

I know we've disagreed in debates, but I've never once taken it personal. I like it when people disagree with me. It makes me truly think about why I believe what I do. I haven't been on the debate boards here very long, but in my opinion I don't think you've come across brash or rude. Passionate yes!

I think it's so key to seperate the opinion from the person. I have many friends IRL who I don't share the same views as, but it doesn't affect our friendship. Often times we share our views and agree to disagree because we know either of us won't end up changing each other's minds.

Oh yes..I am sometimes too passionate..infact,I can come across as being very pushy when it comes to something I beleive in lol.I mean no harm honestly
I also admit to having a very strange sense of humor,and I can go on about something thinking everyone sees it as funny as I do,and the person on the other end is probably totally disgusted or/and pissed at me.As I said,I take some getting used to lol.

I have not found you rude. Outspoken, yes. But I don't consider that a bad thing

Don't worry, Gina. On the debate boards, I'm always strongly disagreeing with someone one day, and then agreeing with them the next. It's just the way things go around here.

Girl I completely understand what you mean when you said you can re-read a post and think "did I write that?" It seems so harsh. I do that all the time and I hate it when it's not as respectful I mean it. (Just want you to know you're not alone there.) I just wish I could say it's a lost in translation issue!
