Since my frustrations with myself are growing because my success-rate at communicating is lower than I would like... Well... It is quite likely that it's coming out in the "tone" of the message. My apologies for that.
And there is no doubt... Anyone that feels that they are not being understood, or are being marginalize, is understandably and often justifiably frustrated.
There's a subtle and nuanced line with "being understood" and "agreeing with another's position" though - which some former posters demonstrated for everyone quite clearly... A different subject, yes... I would simply like to take the opportunity to state that I'm not one of those that expects agreement or submission to my views like some of those former posters have done.
