When sending out a warning.. if it is real, you keep it short and sweet, but more often, you say nothing at all and just tend to business.
When people threaten verbally they have already wasted valuable time when other action could have been taken prior to being vocal.
With your levels of intelligence, I doubt you would even attempt to involve a court, court costs, utilizing the resources it would take to find someone and punish them.. etc, etc.
It's the internet. We all know that the guys here that talk shit are doing just that: Talking.
Of course it doesn't happen in your gym... well, actually it does in mine, but we handle it quickly.. but the point is; reality and the world of virtual media...are polar opposites.
You don't like being spoken to this way by this guy, right?
You don't want to spend money on something that more likely would be a total loss.
You just send him a PM and take care of it there.
In essence, you just lowered yourself to his level with your response. Now, should I have PM'd you my thoughts?
Everyone here is guilty of the exact same shit. If we don't like it, we don't have to be here. It's not like we have a quota or agenda.
Some of these kids are more than likely borderline retarded, Schizzo, Psychotic, loaded with drugs, anti-social.. and all they know is the virtual world of social media.. as in "I don't know how to interact with people in real life"
And whose fault is that?
Technology allows children and adults to remain... children, without direction... and a keyboard with a bi-forked tongue.
I agree that there are lines that aren't to be crossed, but for me, those lines have to do with moral standards, or lack thereof, not a personal attack on myself.
I too know quite well that this rarely happens in our daily lives. We, for the most part, depending on where you live, try to be civil to one another on some level. If we weren't, we wouldn't have restaurants, shopping malls, parks, movie theaters.... I'm sure you get my point.
Off the podium, back to my day.. which is in the REAL WORLD.
I'll be back later.. to climb into the virtual world momentarily.. if I so desire.
