I believe it is "degradation" that I am objecting to- if telling someone (who by the way MANAGED two decently respected NYC eateries) they have no skills isn't degradation than I am absolutely unclear exactly what that word means in your dictionary. For example, simply because she has the audacity to like Rocco and post repeted times saying so (not that I REMOTELY like Rocco) does Ms.Tres Mulder need to be called " a stalker" in the Rocco thread? I just think personal digs (and again all the posts I objected to spoke directly TO the person she was flaming) are unattractive no matter what your opinion is . I find it perplexing that you say "we can share our opinions" and then turn around and tell me both that I'm on the wrong forum and that my opinions are unnwarranted, apparently I'm not part of that sharing process in your mind.Originally Posted by mimi
Speaking of degradation, what exactly was meant by "I don't read specialized weekly periodicals, especially gay ones" - are you saying there is something especially wrong with newspapers that cover GLBTQ issues? By the by, specialized newspapers (whether they cover antiques, fishing, line dancing, government conspiracies etc) actually are more than 50% of the printed market (though many are free and few sell large numbers of copies) so perhaps you want to rethink your rejection of an entire sub section of American media.
