Dear 'There But For The Grace'
I must explain with some urgency that it was NOT me who posted under my name yesterday evening in response to your post on the thread entitled @Good Homeless Thread'!
I would never address someone with such rudeness! Someone has hijacked my name!
My grandson did tell me to save my user name but I didn't think it was necessary. Now I see why he advised me to!
I think it is important to address people with good manners, respect and courtesy, even if you stand at different viewpoints. If good manners are used, one can have a quite reasonable debate and discussion about controversial matters even if there is disagreement involved.
I hope you read this post, I would hate you to think I did post that rude response yesterday evening (in fact I was out with friends, not at my computer).

Mrs Davis, "I hope that you read this post" is a sentence. It needs a full stop.

Be honest, you were out on the piss, and your post revealed your true self, rude, condescending, and a spell check snob. Now sober you are simply trying to patronize your way out of your vile post.

You are rude, condescending, and very stuck up! All of your post show you true qualities and you are annoyed to be caught out.

It's 'patronise' with an 's', not a 'z'. This isn't America.
Not being a grammar Nazi, just trying to preserve English English.

@Language Patriot - for someone who wants to 'preserve English English', you really need to brush up on your knowledge: -ize is the preferred spelling in OXFORD English, just pick up the OED for proof, or check the link attached.

@Mrs Davis, thanks for letting me know. What very strange people there are out there to waste their time hijacking others' usernames to pointlessly antagonise. I hope you had a nice evening out with your friends.

I am relieved you saw my post.
Although I am a little upset at the comments directed at me on this thread.
Why do people think I am condescending and stuck up?
I'm really not.

You are rude,condescending and a snob, see below.
What I'm trying to say is drink/drugs come after a problem they've experienced in their lives. I'm not saying it comes before being homeless necessarily (although in some cases it does).
1) Serious problem in life. Cannot be overcome.
2) Turn to drink/drugs for psychogical and mental relief.
3) Lose job. Lose home. Become homeless.
4) Keep taking drink/drugs to cope with loss of family, job, home.
Not hard Bert, not hard.

Don't worry Mrs D, there are a ton of trolls on this page. If you announced that you had the solution to world poverty or had found a cure for cancer there would still be a handful of this forum's regular lobotomised gibbons who would find a reason to moan. Your response to Bert was perfectly reasonable - you'd outlined your argument coherently previously and he was wilfully misunderstanding. You were right, it wasn't hard, Bert. Finally, the person who bothered to go back and copy and paste your previous statements is an obvious loser.

I fail to see how either of those posts is rude, snobbish or condescending.
I note you have 3 thumbs turned down against you.
I was just trying to help you learn how to spell queue, and to understand the homeless cycle.
Is that you Bert?

Hmmmm..."Stuck up". Because she's standing up for people worse off than herself? Stuck up... You keep saying that word. I'm not sure it means what you think it means.
