I'm wondering if anyone struggles with the line between attacking an idea and attacking the person (both from a giving and receiving end). What is your line? How do you define it? How do you handle when the situation is jumping back and forth over the line?

I handle the receiving end of ad hominems particularly well because I really don't give a shit about what you think. I'm still fucking trying to figure out what I think. My reaction is typically passive and probing. I'll ask for your advice once I have a coherent idea about what the fuck's going on. ... Haven't asked for advice yet. ... Don't think I ever will.

That's good. But there is no argument or debate anymore and I just wanna shove their heads up their fucking ass and drown them in their own fecal matter. But they haven't pissed me off, they can't fucking piss me off, nobody can piss Girly off. Girly don't get pissed. I won't fucking allow or admit it. ... But I will dick with someone who dicks with me, I mean just for my own motherfucking personal amusement. ... Is that wrong?

Breathing - it's more art than science.
