I agree that the tone of some of my posts have been accusing in nature. I am aware of that, and those posts were accusing in nature because I meant for them to be. Many of my posts (not on this thread but in the 'Indoor Swimming Pool' thread I started), were intended that way in response to replies by others regarding the tone of the original post that started the thread, and to show my reason behind the tone of that original post.
Maybe because of the intensity and impact of the posts I made on that thread, people have automatically associated that tone with all of my posts since, regardless of the thread they are being posted on, or the topic. I can certainly understand how easily that can happen, as online boards do not have the same benefit of face to face conversation when trying to understand the tone of a person's thoughts. But I can assure you, that if I were trying to accuse someone of something- I would come right out and say it. I believe that my previous posts will fully reflect that.
My questions this afternoon regarding the City of Miles City and the others included in that post did not carry a harsh or accusotory tone. Amorette, after I read your post I reread it 3 times just to see if it somehow did, thinking I may have just missed it. As I said, I can see how it may have seemed that it did. But I cannot see it. I think the tone is one you are associating with me as a person on this forum versus the actual post itself. Very understandable, like I said. But I think online dialogue should really be viewed as objectively as possible because of the reasons I previously mentioned, as well as other information that correlates with that. I do understand that a person's comments on a community forum like this do combine in a way to create a sort of 'indentity' for each username, but instead of jumping to conclusions based on a username I think it would be more responsible to actually take each post of the author into account first, before stereotyping and assuming. Heck, maybe ask questions yourself just to clarify the intention of the post if you are unsure.
I don't appreciate you saying I am posting about things I know nothing about, especially when the post you are specifically criticizing is one in that I was trying to obtain information when I wrote it, not one that I was trying to act like a bossy, know-it-all in. In fact, if you were bored or curious enough you could compare some of my separate posts yourself and clearly see that even with only viewable text available to capture what you see as my 'tone', that there is clearly a difference between my bada** bit** ones, and my inquiry ones. But I know you are a busy lady and so since you don't have the time or desire to do that, I am more than happy to now clarify and inform you that the difference does exist, indeed.
Furthermore, I have said, more than once, that I was only looking for more information about this subject. Maybe I am wrong in thinking that this thread was started as a general information disclosure to the public about the project, and if this is not an appropriate place for me to try and obtain this information, I would again appreciate any information I can get on where a more appropriate and accessible place for me to find it would be.
Let me say that I am sorry if my 'question' post came off accusing and rude to you or anyone else, Amorette. I would hope that because you do know this information that after reading this, you might be willing to reconsider enlightening me and others on this forum with it. As I said in the original post with my questions, I, for one, would very much appreciate it!
Lastly, I would like to say that I really don't appreciate people deterring me from posting about the pool on Milescity.com. This forum was created with the very intention of discussing topics such as this, and whether or not some of you appreciate my comments or not really shouldn't matter. If my posts annoy you, don't read them. I am responding to another person's thread, so obviously I am not alone in the discussion. I didn't even freaking start this discussion. Those posts annoy ME and just come off like a person angry that a strangers dog sh** in their private yard. But this is a public yard, and anybody's allowed. That's the beauty of it. I love America.
(If anyone is confused, my last sentence was full of smugness and self-satisfaction, but in no way should affect the perception of the tone of the entire remaining content of this post.)
Goodnight, MC.COM. I kinda like you guys.
