Also reread your post before posting in case you use a local phrase
the rest of the country doesn't share.
For example, in N.E. wicked has a different meaning than other places.
On the other side, everyone should try not to jump to the worst conclusion-
use gentle guidance when pointing out something may have different meanings-
don't assume the person meant the not great one or that they know it.
Explain, so it doesn't happen again.
And don't assume someone slighted you - they may have thought
they were helping. Take a "breath" and don't create a battle.
Life cannot be lived walking on eggshells.
If someone apologizes, accept and believe them, don't keep complaining.
It would also help sometimes if people took a little more time to read the first and later posts-
that might eliminate some misunderstandings and make better posts.
If a conversation is going on between several people you don't know,
they may share some knowledge/things they have not written that
would make a big difference in your understanding of what they are saying.
So if they seem okay, don't jump in in battle gear.
If something seems off, talk gently or apologize and say why you
are unsure about something said, asking for understanding.
