Why didn't you say so in the first place? Yes, this is a reasonable approach to this sort of situation.
Earlier in the thread, you scoffed at someone for using personal experiences to support a point of view. But examples and personal experiences are a lot more concrete than generalities and platitudes.
Ahhh. Thank you. At last.
Yes Katherine I am guilty on no doubt a few counts. I am guilty of not putting it in a clear enough way. I am guilty of assuming enough words were put in the right way to convey my concept. I am guilty of no doubt a few more things as befits communication on a forum.
I am also guilty of putting things as you describe in a concrete way based on personal experience for example in real life situations or on the mat only to be disbelieved or scoffed at.
Different strokes for different folks I would say.
