So that explains why you haven't spoken to me in years...I have a personal system I use to try to govern my own behavior. It’s a 3-peat. In any conversation, if we’ve gone 3 posts without any productive discussion, I disengage and don’t respond. This prevents me from needlessly continuing bad conversations or side-tracking good conversations too far from the main point.
The last word isn’t important to me. If I’m right, I’m right, regardless of who spoke last. Same if I’m wrong.
I kid, of course.
