    Is the implication that you think people tell the truth in real life? You seem to to be trying to tell us real life is different than GT as it relates to lying.

    I think the OP appears easy to rile and anger just by some of his posts in this thread alone.

    I think people SHOULD be upset to see obscenity and messages like that.
    Otherwise, we've really lost our way if we accept that as normal.

    Completely agree.



    How we handle it is important.

    I don't know where you got that. Quite the contrary, Flying Dutchman seems to think that people tell the truth in real life. I think people lie everywhere.

    If the truth is important to me (whether my ex-neighbors wife slept with postman, is not important to me so I don't care if it is true) I try to verify it through several sources. I don't believe everything I read anywhere. How can everything be true when we have directly different conflicting versions of "the truth"?

    I think it is a disgrace. It doesn’t put me into a rage though where I’m shaking.

    Finally made 1000 posts
    How often do we mock snowflakes for getting triggered by words?

    I'm all for the OP being offended, but to the point of shaking and threatening someone? Sounds more like Antifa, democrats, and BLM than 3 Percent.

    ETA: [tongueincheek] A true American and patriot would have issued a beat down of this communist, and then asked him if he was going to call F-12. After all, there is no better way to demonstrate the need for LE than to make someone need them. And someone wearing such a shirt is not going to call 911 anyway, so the OP was presented a freebie. The OP was actually very weak in his dealing with this heinous sensitivities offender[/tongueincheek]

    Agree 100%. Like House says, "everybody lies."

    I was responding to your question about how real life is different than GT, as it relates to lying.

    The point I was making is that it's much easier to do it on online forums than in real life.

    For example, if I were to try to tell you in real life that I'm a 35-year old swimwear model in an industry where they're over the hill by 24, who's apparently very successful despite not having an Instagram or Snapchat account (like literally every other model in the biz) and posts from the only laptop on the planet that can run the current iteration of Glocktalk without being able to upload/post pics, I would think you could see through it pretty easily, vs on here. :headscratch:

    In real life they just pick different lies. I don't use dating apps, but I hear that sometimes that the person that shows up for the date, does not exactly their photo, or description. If they lie on here you are out nothing. If they lie in real life, you are out the money and time it cost you to drive across town to meet them, and maybe a drink or dinner depending how nice a guy you are.

    Lies here are often of no consequence. In real life, there are often consequences for both sides.

    Getting back to the issue of how much self control is normal when confronted by offensive, inflammatory insults:

    If a U.S. Marine is sitting in a bar and some idiot walks up to him and yells "Marines are wussies and cowards, screw the Marines" what is the probability that the idiot is going to be uninjured?

    Probably pretty good. The Marine has heard far worse from his DI than anything some civvie puke could come up with. The Marine would probably just laugh at him.
