[IP] Jokes out of context (as sex with pump)



A few pointers from a person with lots of siblings and a couple of kids:

0] This is not meant personally as I haven't really paid attention to who 
wrote
   what, just the continuing thrashing and bashing now going on over this

1] People LOVE people, they LIKE things, they should abhor arguments and 
discord

2] Insensitivity or carelessness is NOT the same as forgetfulness

3] This entire line should be offline as it really has no bearing on pumps or
   diabetes or anything else I could think of that has a place here

4] This discussion has reached the level where I tell my kids it is time for a
   time out: for MOMMY and MYSELF because we can't stand it anymore

5] Too many good people are being hurt by a few people who can't just simply
   say I'm sorry.  I realize that the one who offended didn't mean to and
   probably doesn't want to ever again BUT the fact is someone got really 
hurt.
   I would imagine if someone made a sharply negative comment about those
   dumb cyborgs who walk around with a pancreas in their pockets instead of in
   their bodies a number of us might get upset

6] Remember: in order for 'support' and 'help' to work one has to be willing 
to
   listen to what others say.  I don't have to agree, I don't have to like it
   but if I've been told that I'm a nasty person who shouldn't have stuck my
   $0.02 in, even if I still feel I'm okay, the right thing for me to do is to
   aplogies, bury my head for a while and then come back out happy and ready 
to
   go.

Sorry for the above soap-box.  I have been involved in a few lists which have 
fallen apart for lesser things and I think that we all realize the value and
help which this list gives to each of us and the others involved.
