I remember being involved in a hairy debate with roqua (whom I sorely miss) about the power of words—I think it was in that thread about the women basketball players being called nappy-headed ho's.

Anyway, he maintained that words could never be a really meaningful form of damage compared to physical assault. I wonder if he's read this thread…

This debate between Prime J and BN certainly illustrates to me how personal and subjective definition can be; also how volatile, and how effective mere words can be at assaulting identity and positions.

Please don't damage each other too much verbally—your discourse is valuable precisely because you do disagree and are articulate about it. The hair-splitting of the true meaning of immersion aside, shining the light of your respective thoughts on the various subjects brought up on the boards has a merit in its own right, and adds to everyone's experience when you guys keep it between the lines.

My two cents.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
