Something worth noting here.
The two of you butt heads constantly. That's a given. Yes, 1der is grouchy and wrong (in my opinion) a lot of the time - I call him out on it constantly. That is my view. But he is in a minority here. He has no chance so he probably has to up the ante somewhat. I would do the same thing if I was trying to speak on a Conservative site.
GI appears to be the cheering party. He also doesn't have a problem when it comes to certain things that most people consider to be off limits as he has proved before. You, Corvus, on the other hand, know when it isn't ok. But GI tends to use others as the main mouthpiece. He is great at putting in his 10c but he's also very clever at hiding behind the tail coat of another.
As for who does what in the community - that's another grey area. I am sure that there are people who do little to nothing but shout it from the rooftops when they donate a buck or look at a homeless person the right way. On the other hand, most people I know who work in/with the community don't tend to talk about it because it isn't something out of the ordinary that they do. It's just what they do.
Poker took a grilling around here because of his attitude to certain things. But who actually bothered to look into Urness and actually tour the downtown facility? Poker did. He came back and his mind was changed somewhat, but he still had concerns. Who else here did? I would guess no-one.
Anyway, I was talking to someone the other day who said this forum was a lot of fun a few years ago. Now it is either plain boring or pick on 1der day.
