The daily rant: Goodbyes...

Continuing in the vein of the Daily Rant...

First off, thanks to everyone who jumped me on yesterday's rant. It was wonderful because I got hit with fact and reason and there was no name calling. It was highly appreciated...

Granted... idiot me for not expecting lapig93 to make the first jump. Remember folks his UID is literal ;) I still may throw comments on that thread or continue other issues along that thread but for today.. here's something new...

Saying Goodbye online, I've done this; you've done this...

Many of the people I know and socialize with have some form of pagan bend to them. Primarily what this means is that they have found a spiritual path that has taken them away or in ways have complimented the common Judeo-Christian beliefs that exist in the US.

What does this have to do with Goodbye? Well, how many of the following have you seen? "Merry Part", "93, 93/93", "Blessings be upon you..." or for that matter, "Good Bye"

It surprises me that so many people want to drop their dogma, but not wait for the other person to return the comment. It's feels like they are throwing a grenade and running away.

"Ha! I have thrown my dogma at you and logged off before you can ask, argue or return!" And from everything I've seen, each of these statements is almost a handshake of acknowledgment and concept.

So, the next time you need to log off, consider the fact that if you throw a casual, "93" the other person may wish to return in kind. I know I often do...

I know and fully admit, I've also managed to throw the 93 as I log off as well.

So, stick around and remember... it's not just text on the screen. There is matching text elsewhere on the net, and that text is attached to another computer, attached to another human. And they too may wish to share in, or at least take curiosity in your spirituality.

IM'ing... It's another form of conversation. And you don't just say "well, gotta go" and drop the phone on the receiver.

Love is the Law, love under will :)
