|Name-calling is quite common in forums such as this. In fact, name-calling is far more common than kindness. How hard is it to be kind to others even when you both disagree? Perhaps we can all practice. Post something here that is helpful and kind to everyone. Have you solved a problem in a useful and unique way that others might use? I'll start with this suggestion. Everyone has a checking account. Keeping them balanced requires constant monitoring, subtraction, and adjustment. So simplify. Pay $100 on small bills, and the next few months, you will have a credit balance and won't have to write another check or make another entry for your internet banking. |
It sure is quick and easy to subtract 100 from your account balance, and you'll have fewer entries to boot.
House payment? Round up to the next $100 amount. This pays down your principal putting money in the bank for you.
Your ideas and kindness are most welcome.

I have to admit that I use name calling far too frequently. But it isn't for want of trying to use civil conversation. litebrain and monckton are insane and ignoring them competely isn't too difficult if they weren't the majority posters here. Nightmare is another matter. He attempts to use civil conversation but is entirely incorrect more than three quarters of the time and even when he is corrected he will respond that you're wrong despite your ability to show multiple research papers showing otherwise. He simply calls them "holy links" and discounts them.
The question is how to we hold civil conversations and debates when the majority of postings are from people that do not have a clue what they're talking about and their entire reason for being here is to smother conversation?
