No. I am generally not interested in people enough to talk to them. Why would I wasn't to talk about them or listen to things about them?

RE: Do you gossip?
I think social media is where gossip has migrated to these days. Gossip is faster, light years faster than when I was a teenager. And it spreads over a wider area very quickly.

But super rich, famous people. Hell, I'll gossip about them. I remember when Tiger Woods got into so much trouble for boinking numerous women, yeah, I gossiped about that. He deserved it. Though I don't know if you'd call it gossip. I "discussed" it with friends. What's the difference between "discussing" something and gossip? It's a fine line.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Do you gossip?
I don't gossip for exactly the same reason that I'm very good at keeping genuine secrets...

I can never remember what people tell me.

This, in the past, has had both good and bad consequences.

Maybe I'll tell you about them one day... if I could remember where I made a note of it.

Gossip can be helpful and/or toxic. I don't like to judgy-gossip, but I do like to know information to create opinions. There's a difference, ha ha.

I either work with male software engineers or computer scientists and they're not prone to talking, yet alone gossiping.

I know SOOOOO much about people I've never met. I have no reason to talk about them, but I find it interesting to hear about them.

RE: Do you gossip?
In general, I don’t. I try to treat others as I’d like to be treated. I used to be a listener of gossip, however—and realized that just because I’m not ‘contributing’ to the conversation, doesn’t mean it’s any less offensive to the person who is being gossiped over. So, I’ve stopped that, too. People who spread negative gossip about others, usually feel small and invisible in their own lives, thus this makes them visible, and seem to others as being ‘in the know.’ I try to avoid such people.

Be true to yourself. Heart

We really should try to live harmoniously with each other.

Psst, hey, did you see that? Pff. I don't believe that one doesn't gossip. And have you heard about that other one? OMG.

Don't mind me. Continue your conversations, but please speak clearly and audibly.
