People here are overly sensitive and think that others should walk on eggshells in talking/behavior with them. I don't find much humor on this forum, but I do agree that rules need to be less restrictive at this place and that more freedom for posters is a great thing and much needed.
This is the reality, although people will make posts full of hope and cheeriness. Life's a bitch and it's how you accept and adjust to this that matters. We're living in a world with evil all around us. There are positive moments, there are rays of sunshine, you have to keep going to see and hope those days come again. I question sometimes if it's even worth it, to go through the struggles, to read the countless stories of horrific behavior I didn't think was possible from my fellow man. The world is really total bullshit. Genuinely kind, sensitive hearted individuals aren't cut out for it, we're too good for this.
Your second post is from the 'what's the point of living?' thread. So what are you being to another individual, 'sensitive or insensitive?'
Are you the poster in the first quote who justifies his false reasoning for tainting an individual's image in the eyes of millions of sensitive people who have their faith and genuine respect towards him, and even in their most trying times, economic hardships and failures, never see him - of all people - as someone who'd turn towards them with a lowly gesture likened to those 'I don't give a damn about the world,' kind of jerks - you know, the kinds that get drunk and beat their wives and kids cause they are too weak to face life. Well, this individual did give a damn about the world, and he gave his life for it.
Are you the "genuinely kind, sensitive-hearted individual" you claim to be in your second quote, who by the image you create of yourself certainly ought to be sensitive to the needs of other individuals, most certainly to the image of an individual who even now, inspires and gives hope to millions of other "sensitive-hearted" people, even if he doesn't inspire you, or whatever be your personal grudges with him.
Everyone has their fight with God/Consciousness/Creation/Nature, and no one's life is easy - but why malign someone's reputation - someone who of all people, unlike the self-serving politicians and attention-hogging superstars of our world, actually, in his time -with all his mental and spiritual powers - came out to help ordinary people like a simple friend? Isn't that a rare man?
