Why are people hating others on this board when they dont even know each other or the person. Why does hate have to posted within a question or within the response. I am not referring so much to the insults but the hatred and utter contempt a nd despisement towards them. Is this this the only way some can get their point across?:(

RG. My ideas.
1. Random names. I would vote to use real names. Then watch the anger lesson. Why not?

2, A lot of plain lying. Who you are etc. It takes anger as the motivation to lie, results in becoming tired then the cycle continues.

3. Cut and paste folk. I react to that ---

4. The 800 monkey. Everyone can be one, if they wish.

5.Personal problems become clear.

The random name is chosen as a projection of one's personality. Airforce1 is a bomber. My name comes from Blood being covered by dead British soldiers on Americans. Look at the name. It will tell you a lot. Enough.

Peace out;) ;)

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

I have been here since 2001. And the Cosssack url spam occasionally went into other threads. As for his mocking and using vulgar language, I distinctly remember that also. As for Chorny, he bordered on RRBum's efforts at the same, however, there were usually no oven jokes.

Half of one dozen or another......... ;)

Without becoming too philosophical, I don't think there is personal hatred expressed on here, certainly there is none coming from me. It is rather hatred of the other's argument. With me I can become extremely exasperated with people who won't or can't admit that my statements aren't mere anti-American rhetoric. I also get annoyed with racism, sexism, and those who "bash" for the sake of bashing!

These things bring out the worst in me, and try as I might I then lose all respect for whoever is doing it. Mainly because I can often sense an agenda behind their words. They aren't here to debate but to disrupt and shame. Luckily this is happening less and less in this "new and improved Pravda".

'gal, although it may seem at times as though we all hate each other, this is not so. You only have to look at the way we have all rallied around to support our dear friend, Jezman in his time of trouble. One thing I do know, it is problematic whether we would moderate our language if we were face to face, because I will often argue as strongly with friends as I do on here. The only difference is that often expression and body language can, and does, mitigates any true animosity.

There is a long list of people on this board who have ended up agreeing to disagree with me. Somehow or other we both realise that the person is not faceless and/or nameless but just another member of the human race trying to make sense of what is going on in the world! I think even you and I had a little bit of an altercation, but true goodwill, on both our parts, cleared it all up <s>

Pravda is not for the faint-hearted or for the sensitive soul <g> but it has more going for it than not....

twosongs, I think you made the remark that the world is full of hate without stopping to think what you meant by that.

I do admit that there is hate in the world, but much of it is brought about by fear. Fear of change, the unknown, the "other" etc etc. Much of this fear is fostered by vested interests so that their agendas are more easily implemented. Once we can overcome our fear, then.....

When we hate our enemies, we are giving them power over us: power over our sleep, our appetites, our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness. Our enemies would dance with joy if only they knew how they were worrying us, lacerating us, and getting even with us! Our hate is not hurting them at all, but our hate is turning our own days and nights into a hellish turmoil.

Azov, perhaps 'gal is a bit ashamed of her words and this thread is a reaction to it. It doesn't really sound like something she would usually say and 'gal may now be regretting them. I've often said things I've later regretted, but luckily to people who readily forgave me! <s>

If you use your real name on a forum, there is
at least the chance you can be picked up in a
search engine.

I think there is a clear line that can be drawn
between thinking and feeling and that feelings
drive a lot of the so-called hate.

This is not to say that feeling is wrong or always
irrational as many of our values are driven, not by
pure ration, but by 'values', which are sometimes
based feelings and cannot be proven to be the
right course empirically.

Take the frequent ImperalistSwine (sic) panning
of the Canadian health care system, for example.
Here in Canada, we've decided that instead of
leaving people without medical care, we'd have a
bit of universality funded by the taxpayer. This is
a Canadian 'value' whereas it isn't an American one.

Are Canadians 'wrong'? No amount of ration will
prove it so the argument always gets back to emotions.
There's no denying, however, that in the US, some
43m people have no quick and assured access to
health care when it's needed.

Should I get excited about this? Perhaps.

I do get excited when somebody like ImperalistSwine(sic)
tells me that Canadians' values are f_cked up as I
don't think it's wrong to guarantee baseline
medical care through the largest group policy
of them all - one run by government.

Dick Gephardt is advocating universal medical
care for the US. If I were the GOP, I would be very
afraid.

Vig.

Your following statement is totally false:

<<<Take the frequent ImperalistSwine (sic) panning

Here in Canada, we've decided that instead of
leaving people without medical care, we'd have a
bit of universality funded by the taxpayer. This is
a Canadian 'value' whereas it isn't an American one.>>>

Everyone in the US..... H-A-S.... medical care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(even illegal aliens)

I think it's called welfare healthcare (just like Canada's)

Nice try on the Yank bashing...:)

pilot,

Bullshit! I don't have any medical care - No insurance or welfare. Medical care won't be denied for me, but I might just get sued in the event I can't pay for it.

The medical industry is America is just what it is; an industry, a business. The service is available to anyone, though fail to make payment or fulfill your financial obligations, you may find yourself living with threats, lawsuits, a decimated credit rating and a wish that you had never asked for assistance.

I had back surgery about 8 months ago; I couldn't walk, couldn't sleep, and obviously, I wasn't able to work. If I wasn't crippled, I would have never gone for surgery. I could have opted out, attempted to tolerate the pain and filed for S.S., though I had no desire to be disabled at 43. Insurance covered 70% of overall costs ranging from doctors, surgeons and a month long hospital stay.

I owe over $30,000 bucks, and though I've returned to work, I'll bet it's going to take me 5 years or better to get these debts and collectors off my ***. Even with insurance, 'don't get sick!'

... anyone have any spare change?

I had a (estimated value) $50K successful operation
and few more smaller ones before that one.

I will live to make a conribution and not break the family
because of health problems and HMO idiots who think
like private insurance corporations and use all the tricks
in the book, including lawyers, to stall and sometimes
defeat payment. I don't need to think and worry about
payment.

My system has the benefit of hiring a single adminstration
in an age of computerization and my agency isn't driven
by a profit motive. My single agency is able to keep costs
down and not breed expensive, needlessly duplicated adminstrations.

You are correct. I shot back with an insult to your insult of Bush.

I offended and insulted you personally and I am sorry.:o

I should not have let it get to me but I did. I was having a bad day yesterday and again I am sorry for the insult and I will not do it again.

I did insult you but I dont hate you. I think you were just having a poking fun.;)

Thanks racegal. No offence taken. I don't hate you either. I was only pointing that out. After being on Pravda forum for some time I got thick skinned.
