The hash out thread
Since I'm a communications graduate, I believe 90% of problems can be solved by effective communication.

So, that's what this thread is for. It's to hash out any issues with another member that may have arisen in another thread without completely derailing the original topic.

So, Red Celt... in that thread... yeah that one... you replied:

When someone does something, they always have a motive for their actions. I'm curious to know what KC's motives are... and how he justifies such an active role in an atheist forum to his church friends.

Seriously? Just how thin is your skin?

I've been online since 1996 and I can say (with the greatest of confidence) that I've never told a single lie in all that time. I speak my mind and I'm honest with it. I said everyone has a motive for their actions... and they do. I then said that I was curious to know what your motives were. If you took an honest query and turned that into something negative, that is aaaallll your problem.

He's made 3795 posts, so far (3705 of which seem to be photos of his wife).

Now, really... ask Santa Claus for a sense of humour next Xmas. You are either ridiculously sensitive, or you're deliberately looking for an argument. Hush now.

I gave my background and explained my reasoning for being curious about you. I have good grounds to be suspicious precisely because of my background. You eventually answered my query. I won't query you again (on that matter). Communication works well in both directions, not just one.

And then you went on to call me a hypocrite... the gun-loving Christian calling someone a hypocrite... Yeah. OK.

Here is why I became defensive to your quips and didn't see them as jokes.

I have had no previous dealings with you except on the gun control thread. In that thread we butted heads a bit. So, I see your musings as taking pots shots at me that are completely unwarranted.

This feeling developed based on our brief encounter because that is all that we have to go on.

If say, Lucradis made that comment about my wife, I would have laughed it off because we have a very developed relationship with each other on the forum; and, I know he meant it in good fun.

There are three levels of sarcasm:

facetiousness - a fun, innocent ribbing between individuals with no malicious intent
Morondog would be an example of someone who is facetious with me.

sarcasm - a semi-serious ribbing whose intent is to point out personal disagreement without being harsh. The intent of sarcasm is to you get your point across, though.
Kim would be an example of someone who is sarcastic to me.

being sardonic - a cruel, malicious ribbing with the intent to insult and bring into light personal discontent with the other person.
TalledegaTom would be a person who is sardonic to me.

Your comments, as others have said, come across as harsh. Your tone seems to be filled with discontent and angst, so I perceived that you were being sardonic towards me.

This is why I responded that way.

I would like to understand you and your point of view better so that we can avoid that anything like that ever again.

This puzzled me, I confess. It seems too negative. If I had pick a personification of Sardonicism, I would choose Christopher Hitchens.

Wiki says:
Sardonicism (from Latin: Risus sardonicus, a grin from spasm of the facial muscles associated with tetanus and other poisonings) is the expression of derision, cynicism or skeptical humour variously through comment, gesture or writing.

Example 1:
An example of Sardonic humour: When Lord Holland was dying he knew that the necrophile, George Selwyn, was likely to call on him. He said to his servant: if Mr Selwyn calls, show him up. If I'm alive, I'll be pleased to see him; if I'm dead, he'll be pleased to see me.

Exmaple 2:
My eyebrow (singular) which I raise in an ironic way.

Also from Wiki:
1.Scornfully mocking or cynical. He distances himself from people with his nasty, sardonic laughter.
2.Disdainfully or ironically humorous.

So, I understood it to be No2 and therefore I think "cruel, malicious" are a bit too strong but No1 is close to your definition.
I wasn't aware of that definition so thanks, I've been edumacated

Cheers

Dammit. Communication? I thought this thread was going to be about potatoes...or corned beef...or refined weed. Dodgy
