And to think that I remarked in the miscellaneous section (under general) that I believed the people with keets have the best record on being kind to one another.
As has been said, assigning labels or defending oneself because of a label is not nearly effective as one's actions. Being kind rubs off on others.
Moving on, or talking it out - either way will work, if the desire is to give each other the benefit of respect. The respect of friendship may need to be earned, but each and every member deserves respect until proved otherwise. Even then, disrespect seems to be counterproductive.
