Lost a best friend to Landmark

<<My my Karmal. Did I touch a nerve? You sound paranoid. I'm not performing cultish, cognitive acrobatics. >>
We studied your kind of thing in university, but I never had any idea...
So now you think that you're a mind reader.
Have you spoken to a psychologist about this? Ooops, sorry a landmark coach, I mean?
Nerve? Touched? It's called being assertive and passionate. It's quite appropriate to be passionate about causes that anger us. Live with it.
Passionate assertiveness is to landmark junkies like yourself, like kryponite is to Superman, like silver to a werewolf,...
[133 previous analogies formerly here were deleted for space purposes only]
..., and sunlight to a vampire. Did I make myself clear? If not I'll include the 133 analogies in an adendum.
But if helps your attempt at self aggrandizement to denigrate others then I bless you and forgive you, and I give you my permission to do so.
I know what I am, and I don't need a forum junkie to tell me.
<<I simply stated how I interpreted your description of the situation with your friend. In your post, you state, "She was really talking in the forum jargon big time, and I don't know but something in me sort of snapped and I told her to stop talking like that, that it's annoying and impolite to talk in a language that another doesn't understand. ">>
Cause: No you didn't. You inappropriately attempted to characterize me as someone who "snapped" and then as someone who went off on a diatribe against a much loved friend. You failed. You were wrong. Nah, nah, nah nah, nah!
For what it's worth you DID prove that it's humanly possible to exceed the universal "crass" level. Also the univeral "cheap shot" level. You're a VERY classy, dude. Dude.
Result: We all here called you on it. Now you're eating crow and looking stupid, and you're trying to back peddle by latching onto any little crumb that's left. It's called karma, dude; and you got the bad kind.
Thus to save face in front of your fellow forum junkies, you now pretend like what you originally and "actually"[yeah right] meant all along was that you and your ilk are "more tolerant/politically correct" than thou...or me in this particular case. And you imply that I'm a bad bad bad boy for daring to ever voice an opinion that was contrary to my friend's.
If you're the kind of "friend" who cannnot tolerate disagreement and automatically labels people then frankly you're not much of a friend or a human being for that matter.
As Mr. Rogers would say, "Nice try, neighbor." If such "magical" stories help you go right ahead. Whatever helps you get through the night, dude.
<<What I read was that you told your friend how she should act and that her talking was annoying. You told her to stop talking that way, that it was rude. Isn't that what you wrote? Or did I interpret that wrong?>>
True: It's what I wrote, dude; but you got it totally wrong. Try reading some of the other posts re. to get the correct interpretation. Maybe they can dumb it down enough for you.
So in other words you're basically saying: "Heh,Heh, all "transformation" is basically the sole monopoly of Landmark, and anyone who disagrees is evil. So when Werner tells you to bend over and act like you love it, well, hell; that's the price for nirvana.
Werner, "Quit your whining! Love hurts."
<<I'd expect any of my friends or even my wife to get indignant too if I told them what they could say to me and how to say it. >>
Not so fast, dude! You're equivocating; trying to substitute the meaning of my definition with a parallel one of your own. That's also included at Mr. Ross's site as a form of covert manipulation quite common by COS and LEC types. Shame on you. You're not very subtle or very smart, are you.
Therefore to use your logic from just above, anyone can speak any way they please at any time and everyone else just has to live with it no matter what it is, no matter how incomprehensible it is to the uninitiated, no matter how outsiders feel about it or no matter what the respected scientific experts caution about the organization that such kooky neologisms are endorsing. Why? Because landmark says so! Landmark zombies: "Clap, clap, clap." OH! Well, then: That makes it automatically OK, doesn't it.
Don't try to weasle out of it, dude. That's EXACTLY what you DID say.
Dude! I said NOT to weasle! STOP IT!!!
How would you like it if I wrote to you in profanity?
How about mindlessly chattering away in French or Spanish?
L'aimerait-tu bien si je te parle comme ca?
Te preferies mas si te hablo en Espanol del tiempo.?
Annoyed? Feel like I'm talking down to you or trying to make you feel ingnorant, small or feel... something. SURPRISE! I just did, and you fell for it. It IS annoying isn't it. And I bet you'd figurativel "snap" too if I talked down to you like you were too stupid to live, insulting and intolerant for daring to have a Landmark opinion at variance with mine, right? Don't lie, dude. You KNOW you would.
That's all hypothetical, but well, to tell the truth: I do think you are one fry short of a happy meal, at least when it comes to reading comprehension and Landmark in general.
Your anticipated response: [whiney voice]: "But WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY? I'm being true to myself via unfettered spontaneous creative self-expression. How dare you "judge," "condemn." "criticize," or "limit" me in anyway. You're just "negative," "bad," and "intolerant;' therefore I'm right and you're wrong. The fact that you cannot understand me has nothing to do with it. If you LOVED me you'd just assume it's all good and DO THE FORUM so that you can sound incoherent like I do! Wah WAh WAH! I'm better than you, for I'm more 'tolerant!'"
Rah rah yeah team! Landmark zombies: "clap clap clap."
You're argument makes as little sense, but it makes for a good laugh. I wish you forum types would come and speak at our university critical thinking forum so that we could practice our derision skills. God bless America: Where you have the right to express your nutty opinions, and we have the right to ridicule them.
Thanks for the good laugh. Feel free anytime.
And if you're looking to characterize this entry properly it's called sarcastic, and you had it coming BIG TIME.
So no whining!
