The 10 signs you may be an extremist on Soda Head:

Jack's Pearl 2012/12/26 18:01:56
1. You belong to a little group of peeps who you bitch to in private and you seek out and gang up on others who don't believe as you do.

2. Your posts pretty much always involve hateful words towards others who believe different then you.

3. Your block list is probably pretty large and you boast about that.

4. You probably unblock peeps just to trash them again and then immediately re-block them so they cannot respond to you proper.

5. SH removes things you say quite often.

6. You've been suspended by SH multiple times for TOS violations.

7. You think in black and white. All or nothing. Which isn't how the world works.

8. You eat, sleep and breath whatever it is you are extreme about.

9. Your daily activity on here or other sites is ALL about hating those who don't believe like you.

10. You think others don't have a right to believe the way they do. You may dream they are all taken away some how.

If you can think of more, share them.

P.S. the Avatar for this post is a perfect example of extremist thinking and this can go both ways. Liberals have their share too. I'm not leaving any group out.
You!

    Great post.
    But you did miss out:
    People who post questions with a one-sided choice of answers. I mean, really why do they bother? You might as well have a discussion with your own reflection.

    You are right. And many get wrapped up in it without even realizing they can just click away, as would be the case on SodaHead.

    Over time these are traits that stand out of certain individuals. It's very real too. I don't think I'm off on any of it. Lot of effort for nothing in my opinion.

    It's a trap. They think their beliefs are the end all and be all and if you don't agree, well there's no gray area, only black or white. You are either good or purely evil. That's how extremism works. It's sick. And they get angrier and angrier the more they realize they are not supported by the majority. So instead of maybe listening to some different views, and realizing they can take or leave it, they take offense and get more frustrated.

    Well, confirmed that I am not an extremist. Phew! Only 1 blocked (never to be unblocked), never been bounced and do love a good argument (opinion site tends to advance this I think) but really do not have time for much about stinging sarcasm on occasion. Always have known I am not always right, read the many articles posted unless they are just off the rails, and have certainly learned tid bits of information I did not know -- All and all, SH is just fun.

    I will say that SH seems to be awash with some of these folks just now. Really ugly responses to some pretty normal answers and some getting bounced with regularity only to come back with even more vitriol. Been on here since early 2008 and have not seen it quite so, well, hostile. Cannot imagine how much energy it must require to spend so much time trying to insult others. Oh well, takes all kinds in this crazy world.

    Good list Pearl

    Yes, I have the same thing happen. They get all irate and call me names because I don't agree with their extreme thinking. And that is an extreme reaction in the first place.

    It's sad because it's obvious how much pain they are in over these scary beliefs they hold. And it seems the angrier they get the more you try to help them see things differently. They are offended by that act alone. We can all give or take what's presented to us. No harm done.

    LOL! brilliant - you nailed it ;)
    ....and you are right, there's quite a bit of hypocrisy on the left too. I mean accusing the right of the same thing that is okay on the left sucks too.

    as for avatars - OMG! the number of guns/gun-toting hereos and John Wayne wannabees is quite astounding ;)

    we are all keyboard heroes at the end of the day. the ones though that are willing to kill any intruder - I always thought that's great if you want to commit murder.....bit like in that old Hitchcock movie 'Dial M for murder'

    thanks - I enjoyed reading that one!
