all good and valid points. consensus leans towards the logical conclusion.
I've thought about this whole respect business. the more I think about it the more I wonder what it is exactly. is it a feeing ? is it adhering to rules and regulations ?not heckling a person onstage?
is it not slapping grandad in the face to wake him up ...or would it depend on how old the perp what done the slapping was
what does it mean to 'pay respect'
what sanctions are applied when you (anyone in the audience) withdraw respect. in your experience how has it affected the person's life or well-being
I put it to you all respect is nothing but a false economy. can't be bought or sold. because it doesn't exist (yes, I've changed my position) ...or only exists in its negative state ie disrespect
I agree, the rules of engagement may make saints of us all. ..where would the fun be in that. sadly that particular ship left it's harbour already
I was thinking maybe your issue with BDSM could have stemmed from -based on a true story- type stuff. I can say with all honesty, having spent some time chatting to members of and reading about different communities. the community you refer to would eject any persons who displayed such behaviours
thank you, you're all beautiful
..yes, including you too
