Continuing the discussion from El Cajon police say unarmed black man pointed vape at officer before he was shot to death:
You aren’t the only one who has done this, but you are a person who has done this in the past. You’re also a person that is generally reasonable and who I feel like I can disagree and point out stuff too and you don’t take it as a personal affront. I’d hope that if I was doing something that others might point it out, too.
You have not done it in a while, but here you did post a pretty lengthy post on an unrelated topic, when you could have just as easily spun that off with @LearnedCoward. Personally, I found the discussion of the technical details of different sorts of bullets and how they fire a bit insensitive considering the topic. I’m sure you didn’t mean it that way, none the less.
I realize that you have other interests and aren’t the only one who derails. We all do it - none of us are perfect of course. But I think considering the gravity of the topic, I’d to see discussions like this not even come up in the first place. It’s easy enough to spin off to a new topic, so why not do it.
As for the “I seem like your mom” comment… it felt like I was being dismissed as some old lady who just likes to nag. Again, I’m sure you didn’t mean it that way, but that’s how it came off.
But in general, I appreciate your contributions here and even though we often disagree politically, I find you a valuable community member. I hope you take my disagreement here in that light.
