We ALL feel the need to express opinions on many subjects. It's human nature.....we all think differently and have different opinions. Regardless if it's political, about something going on around ActiveRain or Localism or just plain views on religion or abortion, the way you are presenting it can make all the difference in the world.
In other words, I can be assertive to express my opinion. Be mean, nasty, blunt and one sided and no one would want to listen to me. At least I know I wouldn't if I talked me to that way.
I don't Nobody deserves the disrespect from 'loud mouthed' (bolded exclamation demands) from anyone. I have that much respect for myself to not buy into that.....and would surely have the same respect for others to not do it to them.
Being positive does not mean we have to let anyone walk all over us. That also applies to NOT listening to closed minded people who only want to be heard and don't care how they talk to another.
No matter what, we ARE blogging professionals in the Real Estate Industry and if you would not talk to others in the manner you are writing then you might as well keep those fingers off the keyboard.
There's a difference between expressing your opinion and being rude.
Be nice when playing in the sandbox.
For that matter...in the Rain.
