Vehicle found after man fatally shot in New Jersey mall carjacking

I'm going to derail this thread and proclaim my new year's resolution.

My resolution is to go back to my original posting habits, from way back in my PAFOA days, and attempt to write clearer.

I used to care about how I wrote on public forums. My attempts at communication in my daily life has suffered because I have neglected the importance of clearly communicating my thoughts, ideas, and knowledge.

I pledge to try to improve my written and verbal communication skills on a daily basis and hope my attempts facilitate more discussion around the topic I present, instead of provoking the reader into a perception of myself that distracts from the topic.

I think my poor communication style takes what otherwise would be a good topic of discussion and turns the reader against, not the idea I am attempting to convey, but me. Basically it makes people think I'm an asshole.

I didn't much care about what other people thought about me on the internet but now I realize I'm ostracizing too many good people from my life, even if I will never meet them.

I have no clue what you are referring to, but whether the reader turns against you personally, or against your idea, is quite a bit the responsibility of the reader. Some readers will turn against you for disagreeing with them no matter how much rose water you spray on it. Others will be able to separate you as a person from what you post.

The only way you can never offend anybody is to either always agree, or just don't post. While it is sometimes appropriate.....I don't think it should be a way of life.

I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Go back to pafoa and look at my first two years of posts... I think I got so frustrated being surrounded by people with inflexible attitudes that I forgot to present myself as I am..

While my frustration still exists people I like are saying I've changed from the friendly smiling fun loving intellectual into a hard person. They basically are saying they know me for who I am and love that side but that to others I'm coming off as an asshole. Used to he that people that didnt know my found me charming. Yeah I know, but its true. I want that side of me back and I'm going to get it back.
