Re: [Authentic_SCA] Determining Interest in Authenticity (was: Patron Saints)
- Even if it is good post, if it begins with 'Ummm...'
it usually rings instant alarm bells with me
(condescension ahead..danger danger!) That is, of
course, just my opinion.
The recent posts have shown that there are many
flavors of authenticity types who have different views
on how to communicate, seek each other out, etc. A one
size fits all approach will obviously never happen -
There are valid points on both sides of this debate,
(and it's important to hear all of the differing
views) but if you are a person who doesn't like the
idea, then it seems easy enough to choose not to
participate and let the people who do like the idea
hash out the details.
PS - I also like St Jude : )
