It's not taking sides; it's offering another perspective. We are all different, and we interpret things differently. Whether we happen to agree with someone does not mean it's siding against someone else. My comment to you was that we can't always say things that will please all people, nor can we work out in advance how our comments to a, b, c, and f are going to affect x, y, z, b, q, p. That was it! No sides!
As far as polarity junkies are concerned, what's the world made of? Black and white, democrat and republican, jew and christian and buddhist and muslim, young and old. Some might see it as a positive thing called solidarity. Because polarity is gonna happen. It's mammal nature.
I don't know how, when you read my post, it boiled down to taking sides. It seems that we are all guilty of taking a single statment and responding to it, rather than to the point of the post. I was sharing an experience with you, just one to say that I don't know how that could be a "rule" here--to not post anything someone could take as a put down. Someone will always take something as a put down. Even my post, which wasn't a put down of you at all!
