    On occasions when you let yourself down in your actions ~ by your own standards and ideals ~ what is most likely to have been the root cause ~ loyalty, fear or greed? Or are there other reasons for deviating from what you think is right?

    Do you only get giggles from making posts like this, or do you get, like, I dunno, wet dreams or something, anticipating all the self-incriminating replies you'll get?

    This reply of yours strikes me as being a tiny bit "self-incriminating" actually. You're following me around the forum condemning my threads and posts [which is fine by me] although it does make you seem rather het up than you might want. What leads you to do this? Loyalty perhaps? Anger? Mischief? 🙂

    I'd have to say none of these. It's usually frustration, after a period of trying to do the right thing and being obstructed at every turn.

    So, so far, we have loyalty, fear, greed, anger, mischief, frustration.

    For me I'd say it was frustration.

    I think anger is a good call, but loyalty should probably read misplaced loyalty.

    Why the aggression towards FMF? This is a run of the mill thread.

    More importantly, why do 'run of the mill' threads never produce adequate flour?

    For me it's loyalty, with a smattering of pride.

    I'd add ambition ~ although it may just be a blend of loyalty, greed and pride/ego.

    I would think laziness could also be a foible.

    There have been a few work situations where I should have turned whistle-blower;
    blatant sex-discrimination
    corruption
    cheating
    I didn't because .... fear I guess, fear of not being believed.

    Can't say I've ever let myself down through greed and although I consider
    myself loyal I would not put that before my morals. (ie I would not protect
    a friend or family member who was in the wrong)
