You know @pauliunas you’re a smart guy, and surely a smart guy as you realizes that if what you say ends up someone feeling insulted, it would seem to make it less probable for them to “get you”.
What happens when someone gets insulted, is that their fight-or-flight cognitive mechanism activates. There is nothing most of us can do to this, as it derives from our “lizard” portions of nerve system. This reaction, then, unfortunately prohibits rational thinking.
Seems a lot of people have over time asked you here not to use the word “crapple”. Should it result in someone being insulted or not and whether getting insulted about it is objectively defendable or not , is one thing.
Another thing is, that if these people end up getting insulted or annoyed by the use of it (whether they should or not, objectively speaking), what does it do psychologically to them in terms of their willingness to listen to your wisdom?
Does using this word, “Crapple” seem then to rather increase your chances of persuasion or diminish the chances?
What do you think?
