No, I’m not suggesting you have to agree with anyone, or you can’t debate or even argue. Simply suggesting we try as much as possible to remain civil and make an effort to refrain from personal attacks.
Really good advice indeed
Time to change, not only now, but always "seek".
Use experience and knowledge, and empathy not the least, to avoid getting "over the edge".
What I have learned over the years:
Dont respond forever and ever on a topic where you disagree with either just one, or most, "just" because you want to have the last word.
We see some loooong posts, with quotes from everyone almost, and a user commenting over and over till it gets ridiculous and unreadable, and gives us as a community, NOTHING, and destroys the whole thread...
Or something taken out of context, a bad classic unfortunately...
Also, really long text answers, are something very few likes, most dont.
Regarding video, well, disagree video is "better", in fact I hate when something simple is shown in a video, say how you reset a watch or set up a GoPro or something.
Today youtube video has become so popular, that even showing how to simply press two buttons at the same time for 5 seconds, is shown in a boring 10 minute video, yaaaawn and what a waste of time
For me, a written explanation is so much more intuitive to understand, but even more important, you dont waste time on this, as you can simply browse through and find exactly what you need in a few seconds - that is the advantage of something in text.
Where video is simply the wrong tool.
BUT, I know this is me, as others got it way better with video.
The thing is, I think nothing of above is really good, for most of us.
A simple illustration/drawing, with a few words, can show exactly what it is all about, works way better for most it seems
But as said, just an example of how different we are, and important to understand each and everyones perspectives IMO.
I love the idea of "time to reflect" on yourself, and how you behave, and maybe, well most likely, change
