What annoys me is the idea that anyone who gets (rightfully) angry isn't acting like a "civilized adult". Why is it so hard to believe that people wouldn't get angry face to face? March did not insult anyone, in fact she was responding to being insulted. I really don't see how this was unreasonable. She managed to make her points without "degenerating" to the level of the post she was replying to. -hollie ------------------------- Trillium Hollow Cohousing Portland, Oregon hollie [at] meandering.org ------------------------- >From: "Bitner/Stevenson" <lilbert [at] earthlink.net> >To: Multiple recipients of list <cohousing-l [at] freedom2.mtn.org> >Subject: Re: Excuse me? >Date: Thu, Jan 6, 2000, 5:09 AM > > I find it hard to believe that any of you would behave this way in a > meeting, face to face.
