" I know more about the dirty dealings in the back room of the various people involved in this website than you ever will"
Wanna bet. On top of that I will go further and say perception becomes most people's reality. Many of those "dirty dealings" are not what they appear to be and can be constructed to suit purposes and agendas.
Then there are the individual filters at play. My story. Your story. Our story. Their story. Etc.
The key is to know its just a multi level story and appears different from various vantage points.
Again, I am not aligning with a person. I am aligning with this particular pattern shout out. You have made more comments on the OP than the pattern that he is sharing. Why is that?
