My first thought is the unkind one of "~well, okay, the fast people can sit there and clutter their conversation with escalating emotional bullshit, while the people who are capable of stilling their fingers and thinking for more than a second before dumping their unhappiness on others can make a separate thread in which to actually achieve things.~" And even while I was typing that, I was cringing at the sheer amount of compressed rudeness in it. It's painfully obvious to me why my first guideline on Proper Communication is to not say things quickly; I need at least two or three rounds of "no, don't say that" before I can strain out the stuff that's needlessly judgemental. -_- But, needless judgement aside... Hmm. I expect people would be Offended And Upset if I were to be audacious enough to go around holding up stop signs or referee images saying "hey, time out, slow the heck down people, you're doing way more hurting each other than is necessary, take a breather." How much is that because I'm not a mod, and don't have the Recognized Authority to shut shit down, and how much is because my approach would be uh... well. As clumsy as that first thought? And should I take this train of thought to a different thread?
