why don't we get together for a cup of coffee and talk about our differences like civilized people?

Your constant triads tell me that you follow my every move hoping to pick on something.

It doesn't have to be like this Joe. Maybe if we meet, we can learn to respect each other more. What do you say?
I'll even come down to So Hum to meet with you at a coffee shop there.

Dave Stancliff Makes An Offer

Get together over coffee (in a public place) to “talk about our differences like civilized people.” Just “like civilized people.” Like let bygones be bygones or no harm no foul? Sounds reasonable, right?

I wonder what those “differences” would be?

First, I'd have to know what “constant triads” are. Whatever it is he thinks they, these “triads” are telling him is of his own fabrication – making. Of course, trying to deny this accusation, that I've got some personal vendetta against him, is a waste of time. Which is a “difference,” unfortunately, that precludes personal one-on-one meetings.

Then there's the part about “learn to respect.” Actually it is, “learn to respect each other more.” So, that seems to indicate that Dave already has a certain measure of respect for me. That's good!

The question is, can we build on that? Why would I want to? What incentive do I have in losing my ability to keep this Report non-personal and objective? You know, if he really doesn't want this Report to comment on his “As It Stands” columns in the Times-Standard, perhaps, he should simply ask.

So, what do YOU say, Dave?

  1. "Constant tirades" = constant non-constructive comments.

    It's too bad you're so suspicious Joe. Meeting over coffee could have been beneficial to us both. We might have found out that we do actually have common ground on some subjects.

    If you change your mind let me know. The offer still stands.

    I really don't want to ask you to stop commenting on my stuff, because that's your right.

    On the other hand, no one enjoys having a constant critic and not knowing why the person is so personal in their attacks against them.

    In other words, try reversing our situation.
    How would you feel if you were the writer being followed around by an unknown personal who appears to have a personal grudge against you?

    You'd wonder why wouldn't you?
