as sure as the south easter there will be spats on this forum. i have seen good causes get razed in the flames of heated emotions. so, i have a thought or two this morning.....

prof chris breen at UCT told us that, well, we're all basically a bunch of poephols. the most annoying thing is when one poephol tell all the other peophols that they are much bigger poephols than him/herself. inevitably there will be much murmuring, letting off steam and the subject matter gets lost in the frothing muck of emotionally laden arguments.

you can be 100% right about something and yet be 100% wrong because of the way you address the issue. people respond as much to feelings as to facts, and wise (wo)men knows how to address both to get the desired results.

next time do not come out with guns firing and accusing people in a public audience. state your case clearly and kindly. you might just get somewhere.
and even better
if somebody accuses or offends you, maybe you can be big enough to look beyond that; reach out & see if you cannot make a friend instead of an enemy; fight fire with water so that you may live in green & living lands.

may we all climb trad in an peaceful & enlightened future :wink:
