You have been open about being an advocate for non-violence. Also, from what I've read of your posts you seem to be capable of seeing the individual in people and recognizing that a person is more complex and meaningful than whichever political ideology they ascribe to. I see you as a humanitarian in the sense that you don't seem to dehumanize people based on whichever political ideology they ascribe to. Dehumanizing people (ie passing rigid judgement on vast numbers of individuals and blindly hating them without knowing them or ever meeting them has been the foundation of genocides throughout history). You seem to be open to consider the "other side" of an argument which seems in line with my perception of what a typical autistic person is (ie a non-conformist. Someone who may follow a certain ideology but questions not only other people's viewpoints but also isn't afraid to question and contemplate their own). You also have never given me the impression that you're a bully. In other words, you seem kind.

Those are some of the things that come to mind about you in my opinion, Sly. The world is a better place with you in it. The world is a better place when a wide range of non-violent people lend a wide range of viewpoints rather than groupthink.

So yes, Sly, I like you.

You're an OK guy, and I like that you're fond of foxes. They get a bad rap sometimes and have been the villain in many a kid's story. We don't agree politically but no matter, as life isn't all about politics - a dirty game if there ever was one. They should always have to wash their mouth out with sanitizer after a session in Congress or parliament...

Most of the posters on this thread including yours truly, Enviro, are quite happy to be your friends, as you can see.

Nice to know some still like me here, gosh knows I have no one outside of wp.
Work blows and now I’m working another day a week, cause people refused to wear masks and quit.

^ I hope you’re getting the consolation of what would have been their pay going into your bank account.

Although, will that complicate your interactions with government agencies at some point in the future?

Don't consider leaving, Sly.
If you do *THEY* win. 8O
Best avoid PPR entirely,
At least for a time.
There is enough doo doo in the news forum to keep anyone happy. :mrgreen:

I won't let the bully boys influence me. :twisted:
They will have to drag me out feet first. 8)

Not sure I should have said this in "The Haven".
I don't usually come here,
And need to find my feet,
First or otherwise. :wink:

I like you Sly. I don't give a fig about politics, I am only interested in what connects people positively not what causes conflict.
I find you to be sensitive and kind, I would like to know more about why you love foxes. :D

I and foxes share a lot of common traits. They are loyal, kind, playful and silly. They are anxious around people or sudden sounds. They also cute.

They also eat my chickens sometimes, but I don't hold it against them. :)

But, and this is the important question...What do they say?

They have quite a few things on their mind:

The two foxes on the right:

"You never say you love me anymore like you used to do ":(
"You know I love you I brought you a juicy chicken only 3 months ago".......
Fox on far left:
"Geez go get a lair or a hole or something already I'm sick of hearing you squabble"..
