> Hey Mitch, you are absolutely right - unbridled honesty can push people away - but the context is of a couple of years of frustration > at this point.
> The honesty I spoke of was about a year ago and surely didn't turn anyone away but myself.  That's the biggest danger of negativity.  > If ya can't be positive yourself - ya surely can't spread anything but bitter butter so I left for about 6 months.  
> Also - there ARE totally awesome people here!  It would be nice to see  them again! - I think noone has shown up for ... err... > months?  And  before that... months?
> " Sorry if I'm way off base in those remarks."
> - I've done all of my childish complaining now in the last post so please let me be the one to apologize.
> "...and I look forward to hearing other (positive attitude!) suggestions."
> - I think this is the biggest reason I finally came out and yodeled this little ear bleeding on you all... my attitude has grown sour > after alot of disappointment and needed some of you poor souls to absorb it with your positivities.  A little electron flow if you will > - I knew there was potential.  Sorry I was the source :P  Ya more sorry for the overly stretched out bad analogy there.
 > - "I don't know you, and I don't want to offend you, but is it possible  that what you call "open source honesty" is pushing people > away?  There  *are* ways of being open and honest (and assertive) without hurting  people's feeling.  Perhaps explore some other > ways of interacting with  people? "
> No worries - no offense taken at all!  There *are* ways of being honest that you even demonstrate in your own comments- we > can all learn from your skills, brother!
> ANYHOW! I'm already feeling less bitter and negative - venting can help when someone listens. Great!  So, hack on!  And attract others to make the coolest hackerspace ever!  :) Mitch.
