(CS)Give me a break,  Jill.  You don't have to say am a  "stupid all old
woman who can not understand" to rely the message.  The disrespect of
telling me I don't know what I am talking was not subtle, and made it
very clear you do not respect me. You can  write all day about higher 
standards of being respectful, without changing the behavior and the intend 
of it.   Are you denying the intent of telling me I don't know what I am 
talking about?  Wow, how Palestine and Israel can we get?

Give me a break. As I said, my post was directly addressed to your comments 
- without the later further explanation - which to my understanding of

respect. However, as many have pointed out, I am blunt. I don't mince words, 
I don't say things so that people will feel better. I think that's lying, 
and that certainly does come under the heading of respect.

The bottom line - if you can feel that it was an attack, you must also 
accept that, according to my standards, it was not. I'll offer my apologies 
that you 'felt' attacked, but I won't confess that that was my intent or
