I think you invest too much in internet fights.

I, very often, consider modest to be classy!

I guess some can’t see that connection, but I could not care less since I don’t make my choises trying to impress those people, I just am not a very blingy person when it comes to jewellery. 🙂

nykkee :  A word is just a word…. It only becomes a bad one when it is used with malicious intent or to cause upset or pain to someone.  Its all about context. 

For example ‘ you come from an ethnic background’ can be deemed offensive or it can be a statement of fact. I’ve had that said to me on many an occasion. Its all about tone, context and where they stress the words. I’ve had it said to me as a statement of fact where no offence was meant. I’ve also had it said to me where  in pronunciation, stress was put on the YOU and ETHNIC. I took offence to that because it was clear in tone and context that to offend me was the major outcome.

My thoughts are that everyone over thinks things these days…. Only get upset if people deliberately do/say something with malicious intent otherwise move on with your day.

This board always seems to surprise me with how idiotic it gets. But at least it’s always popcorn worthy.
