The thing to do is just remove your feelings from the conversation and just be factual.
I might quote some one but expect and hope that others will give opinions experiences, If I don't quote what I am thinking about I might just be lost in the muddle.
I am really quite sensitive at heart but try not to let any personal comments directed at me change what I say.
I also think that the smilies have different meanings to different people.
is to me a sometimes silent "you know what I mean" but I figure that only some will understand if they are thinking along the same lines or experienced the same.
is a tongue in cheek remark not meant to offend.
But we are all wired different and that's also different for different sexes.
When I get a kicking so to speak I try and ignore the post for a while but eventually have to look.
If you were to say you wont carry on reading the post or wont read some posters posts etc is a bit like putting your fingers in your ears.
I am not well educated so you will have to forgive my foibles.
