Well, there are people who walk through life continually affronted by everything.

Heck, there's one CD poster like that. This person always reporting people (Read: Me) to the mods for the most trivial things--to the point where she stalks me on other forums where she has absolutely no interest otherwise. People like that take themselves waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too seriously.

isn't not provoking people a healthy way to deal with life in general?

He does a point in that the law does allow this sort of thing.
there was a time you would either have to duel or get your teeth knocked out from any provocation and it was accepted.

Brutal, yes.
Also great as a preventative measure.
Civilization does have an aspect to allow certain 'cowards' to prevail without fear of retribution. Criminals even in some cases.

but human society/interaction as it is, there are people who will ruffle feathers.

i mainly go about my business and interfere with anybody. but this doesn't mean there are negative people out there.

Well, you're provoking all of us with another ridiculous thread so I guess we'll see if it gets anybody more wound up than the rest of us. As far as I'm concerned you're just providing more evidence that you're pretty messed up and not a very happy person.

I think realising that people should rise above situations is pretty balanced, not messed up.
