Is it possible to be too sensitive?



To be online you need some essential equipment; a computer, the ability to type and to turn off that little voice /series of filters in your head that reads out loud. Unfortunately some just seem unable to do that last one. OK there are a few that can barely type and frankly as the world's worst speller and having only a  casual regard for grammar, one just isn't going to go there. He who is without sin may cast the first stone; that person does not reside behind this keyboard.

The critical skill though is that first one otherwise things are just going to go tits up damn fast. Perusing Fet this morning provided a perfect example. Someone comes on asking what to buy their new dom for his birthday. People reply that they don't know him, but they usually buy their partners something that they need, listing a few examples. The poster shoots back that they don't need bitchy replies. People respond that it wasn't bitchiness just a statement of fact. The poster deletes their post and storms off...

Day after day, in group after group, this process is repeated. Some just never write again, others form groups to bitch about the responses or join those groups to complain about being ganged up on and how the cliques are mean to them...
For the record just because a group of people agree with each other does not make them a clique.
... and generally carry on as though they were slighted in the most egregious manner.

Sighs how do these people get around in real life?

No, a bitchy reply would be "You should get him a butt plug, a bottle of hot sauce and some sleeping pills, then dose him up good while he sleeps with all that". I think I should be allowed to give that kind of advice, don't you?

Yup 'cos then one small and ever so repressed slave could suggest a couple of things as well. Sighs they are never going to let us :(
