    Aug 9 2011: When a person is kind and understanding, thier posts will reflect it. Understanding in itself is educating yourself on different views. If a person chooses to degrade then they shouldnt be in the forum that has kindness and understanding in it, at all! There are ways to express your voice, and opinion, and also questioning others, without being insulting, degrating, or rude. When people express kindness, concern for others, and a loving attitude for serving others, then we must meet..introduce ourselves, and network with each other......to form the ultimate team!
