Aha !! I think I see where the cross over occurred then, msolga
. I had quoted a portion (only, I point out) of your post only because I have a certain affinity . . . and had intended to use such humorously as a stepping stone-like path into a more serious post directed towards the OP's concern.
Now my style in presentation, there, may have well gotten confused a little due to my having quoted your post in such a manner . . . and, be it for better or for worse, this is just the way I write (in the event that may have been a factor too).
I appreciate your getting back in an explanatory manner, and will thus offer the same:
Upon my first having joined the forum now gone, there had been raised at least one voice, expressing concern over my actually being on that forum--being more of a scientific method-like person, which we all know, philosophy simply does not do
. So, actually, I don't really hold any strict (we could say) philosophical
Regarding the contradiction I had insinuated, it would probably be best to let that one slide back into the water . . . in that I can now see where the cross-over had occurred, and why that particular comeback
, allowing me a bit of a moment for being off-topic, I am an honest person, one who enjoys humor--life, dance, and song
--but who writes the way I do, and yet who doesn't usually participate in sarcasm (while my humor may be affected somewhat by my past 26 or so years in Japan).
And then, to close, I did not take any offense...it's not really my style...and neither did I intend to offend (but we only realize that the understandings [how something is taken and processed by another's brain] is not always so much in our control), nor did I intend to sound 'uppity,' in any way . . . again, it's just the way I write. I do offer my apology for any loss of time, or wasted emotion, caused by my possibly not having segregated the two things--taking a comment of yours, and playing around with the pun
, and responding to the OP in a universal way . . . and also with the intent of encouraging a lessening of negativity; as though there were really still two groups
. This, I hope, will serve its purpose.
