I think it’s something more substantial.

Thanks Jane. I was being an ass. Sometimes, when dealing with someone that is not going to listen or be honest no matter what is said, I release my civility and allow the ass to run loose, and I probably should not do that. I should probably spend my words writing something that I respect once the civility is recaptured, or else just shut up now and then.

Reading your words, not just here and now but on many occasions lately, seems to restore, if not civility, at least good humor and hope. Again, you and a few others are why I have stayed active on Medium. This rest of the online social media world became uninhabitable to me long ago.
