Passive aggressive[edit]

SPECIFICO, please don't tell people you're in conflict with that you "hope they find peace with themselves".[1] Seriously. It's even worse than telling somebody to "calm down". And don't tell them "All's well", either. Who are you, Robert Browning? Bishonen | talk 00:20, 3 April 2014 (UTC).

Hello. I don't consider myself to be in conflict with Sitush. The two of us have exchanged supportive notes on a sporadic and infrequent basis over the past 6-9 months. As he's stated, the Austrian business has at times caused him agitation and he sometimes expresses it in frustrated and unconstructive ways. "All's well" means something like "no need to reply, no conflict, just leaving a spontaneous reaction to your recent post." I think your tone is a bit harsh for the occasion. If you didn't mean it that way, no problem. SPECIFICO talk 00:42, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
I think my tone is right for the occasion, and specifically that my header (possibly the harsh part) is. If you think that was a supportive note, or even that it expressed "no conflict", well, it doesn't look like the recipient took it that way. Doesn't that give you pause at all? But it's not my business, I'm (obviously, I hope) not accusing you of anything in an admin capacity, or warning you. Just leaving you a spontaneous reaction. I'm done now. You're quite welcome to have the last word. Bishonen | talk 09:16, 3 April 2014 (UTC).
Look here, I have no problem with you. Go back and read the initial message I left on his page. It was cordial and direct. In my opinion, Sitush sometimes posts writings that do not advance the noticeboard discussions but rather express his personal dismay, annoyance, or worse. Not always, but sometimes. I am far from the only editor who's pointed out to him when he strays in that way. That sort of talk page note is not uncommon. I'm sure you've gotten and left them from time to time. So have we all. Sitush's response was not in that collegial tone. My reply to him acknowledged that. There was nothing "passive aggressive" about it. I chose not to engage his specific testy reply and, having seen that he is "retired" and knowing from prior statements of his that he has real world challenges these days, I wished him well.
I've seen you make many thoughtful contributions in the past. However in the current environment around the libertarian articles, the arbitration, and the current ANI, it's problematic to leave misleading notes such as yours in place without comment. Many users here do not take the time to check facts, evaluate opinions, or sort out the references and histories behind messages such as yours. They can be damaging. I've posted about this in the past in other contexts, because I believe that it is a negative factor in any community or social system, online or not. It's not I who cares about "last word" -- that was Sitush's rather telling reaction. He's peevish and childish sometimes, way too involved in his self-image as a village elder here, and he projects his frustrations on others. Not always, but this is a clear example of his having done so and you stepped in the middle of it. "Give me pause"? I suspect you are too thoughtful in real life to think that Sitush's anger is my responsibility. SPECIFICO talk 11:47, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
