    Where do you draw the line...?

    Thumbing down a detractors post...?
    Telling some one what you think of their opinions...?
    Sending them a PM telling them privately what you think of them and their opinions...?
    Starting threads about "them" but not mentioning "them" by name...?
    Being upfront and honest about what you think of this person...?
    Posting passive-agressive jabs while keeping your personal "hate powder" visibly dry to your admirers...?

    What is hate?

    Nothing on RHP is hate.

    True hate is massacring his/her entire family and then
    showing him/her the pics while sipping Earl Gray tea
    and listening to Burt Bacharach.

    With a grin.

    That description sounds a lot more like madness, especially the Burt Bacharach part.

    Being consumed by hate is bad for the hater, too. Maybe worse than for the hated.

    Any emotion, taken too far, can have adverse effects.

    At RHP, "hate", "hatred", "hateful" and "hater" are words usually brandished in order to taint the posters they are hurled at, to misrepresent the motivation of those posters, to sidestep an inconvenient point that has been made, to deflect criticism or disagreement, or to try to close down or bail out of a conversation.

    How ridiculous.

    These are all your motivations and tactics exactly. You trot them out as examples of what other people do, but this is your MO exactly.

    You just don't have the guts to put the label "hate" on them. You'd much rather create lies that you dress up as truth, but the end results are the exact same as what you wrote here.

    Tainting other posters, misrepresenting their motivations, sidestepping inconvenient points, deflecting criticism, and trying to close down or attempting others to respond to your nonsense and hijack threads... this is all you, exactly. But you boldly come here to say "other people" do these things to shift attention from you to cover up your own forum sins. It's starting to wear pretty thin.

    I'd call it a "confession" but you don't have the guts to own up to anything unkind that you post. It's always "someone else's" fault.

    You are free to claim I do these things, of course. But you are missing the point. I don't accuse people of "hating" etc. in order to express my disagreement with them. If people feel tainted or misrepresented or that their points are sidestepped, it is the upshot of debate and disagreement. But I do not use willy-nilly accusations of "hate" or "hatred" to poison the well or "close down" threads.

    I don't "hate" anyone on any of the RHP forums. It is you who is suggesting that I do.

    The New York Times Magazine for this week says we classify those who oppose us as haters and say "Haters gonna hate" to assuage our own egos. It allows us to dismiss the criticism, which might to some degree be valid. But the online disinhibition effect means that the criticisms we receive in these forums is probably more strongly stated than it would be face to face, and the effect is to make us defensive. It's understandable, if a little destructive.

    Don't be silly. All my posts are always entirely "my fault", so to speak - and not "someone else's". Whatever content there is ~ whether it be perceived as 'unkind"' or 'kind' or 'opinionated' or 'nonsense' ~ is all there in plain sight for anyone and everyone to read in the full knowledge of who the author is ... so I don't need to "own up to it".

    What is hate?
    What is "hate"?

    An aberration which occurs when self justification replaces acceptance
    of authority and/or when raw emotion replaces rational thought.

    disagree with yer word, "aberration"...
    all humans, the dalia lama, even mother teresa, have felt hate at one point or another in their life...

    this makes it, universal, not an aberration...

    Anyone who can truly hate another poster is very sad.
    Such a strong emotion to base on internet chat.

    Could you fall in love with another poster? 🙄
