Lina corrected one error in my post which I happily conceded to her. As for the rest, I stand by it and defy anyone to call it "hate." I disagree with your entire argument. I have a right to say so, as long as I do it respectfully, which I did. If you find that hateful, I'll remind you of what Harry Truman once said when he was asked why he was known as "give 'em hell Harry."
"I don't give 'em hell," he said. "I just speak the truth and they THINK it's hell."
PS: Everyone reads things into words and say they prove their point. You think the push-back you've gotten today proves your point. And while some others have smacked you harder than I did, I'd say your reaction proves simply that you are too sensitive for even this neutered board. Oh, well, at least it was an interesting thread.
Final word. Most of the other women who posted can handle themselves just fine on this board and I have no doubt it helps their business. On the other hand, I'd be surprised if you didn't hurt your business with the attitude you displayed here.
