      People seem to rally around those who use name-calling as their primary response to something.


      We must try to put into words what we need to communicate without name-calling or the message is lost in a petty insult.


      People also seem to rally around those who promote brash action.


      We must try to find non-destructive solutions first before opting for the easier option of destroying something or the progress is lost in a tantrum.


      People seem to rally around such people who accuse others of what they do.


      We must look at our actions and the actions of the accused to see if there is any difference or the problem is perpetuated but merely by different people.


      If someone is unable to avoid petty insults, brash actions, and hypocritical accusations when communicating, that person needs to stop and think about what's really wrong and deal with that, and others need to stop and reconsider everything that the person said and did from a vacuum existing only of that one person -- nobody else, just that one person's words and actions alone -- replace everyone else in the conversation with a blank.


      To be mature is simply one thing: Don't be petty.


      There is far too much pettiness around from everywhere and far too much acceptance of it if it's from someone we trust.


      EDIT: Interesting: A post about not being petty received a -1 and no comment.

      Because someone at work got us sick, this is the peak we got to see (until 2024 at least). 1:24 PM Rooster Teeth time, Oxford MS.

      I missed the memo that this exists.

      Not too long ago, I mentioned how I was tired of IT work. Today, a sudden "we got a new person and need a computer" was dropped in my lap.


      I'm glad. That's strange for me for to be glad that something people knew for a month or longer was dropped upon me without any forward notice at the moment something was needed.


      I thought about my change in mood, and I believe that I sorely needed a break from "let's configure the system to punish bad people" and get back to some "someone needs help".


      IT isn't bad. It's the kind of IT that gets to me. This department's primary responsibility is enforcement, which is simply the punishment of people who break rules, which means we focus only on the worse parts of Human tendencies.


      It's nice to be needed for making something work better than making something hurt worse. It's like I can breathe again if even for just a moment.

      We're still familial, tribal animals that cannot psychologically handle a world of people at our fingertips.


      That's no excuse to act like animals, though.


      We must learn to live in this world. We can't go back to being xenophobic, territorial people like we were in pre-historic days. We have no room for it. Our physical brains have not evolved much at all since those days, but we're stuck with what we have and we must make do with it. There is no going backwards.


      Our Human nature is being stretched to its limits, but there's evidence everywhere (except in the news) that we're better than our nature. Don't lose hope, and never give in. We're not animals. Let's prove it.
