mtp, I've decided to rethink my previously held opinions of you, mostly due to some of the observations you've made lately that I've been really impressed with, especially considering the personal challenges you're dealing with lately.

Let's be friends.

Honesty doesn't have to be delivered in a nasty way. Nor does it need to be sugar coated.

Can't honesty just be honest without any hidden motives?

This makes you look so nasty shawnee. Why do you have to be like that? You're not a nasty person. Why act like one?

Is Cloud the only one allowed to be nasty?
Nasty a relative term that can have varying degrees...

Who said it can't? In fact, the literal definition of the word "honest" precludes what you are suggesting. Ipso facto.

This is NOT the most hostile board this side of hell. Flint knows.

MTP is proof of that.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; you are a fact monger, Flint.
