Destro I do think you have something to offer. But you have to decide if you care more about your issues and opinions or about your ego. Once again, I feel that I can say this because I have the exact same problem.
Just know that if you back off on the direct attacks, just a bit, and steer just a tiny bit towards talking about specific issues, you’ll have a lot better conversations, make some friends and get more of your points across for consideration.
Have a beer and breathe before you flounce. I would miss you… a bit.
