There is hardly anywhere I can travel where I can't find a helping hand if I need it. I hope that they will expect the same from me when traveling down this way! After years of beating my head against the wall, I just don't post on threads with people I know I can not discourse with in a civilized manner. It would be like stopping to look at the wreck on the highway and get involved with it at the same time.
Could define phycy? My guess (as I read the thread earlier) is like Bon said, he meant psyche (si kee).

I like to think, that what I post on this site, I would not hesitate to say to someone in person.
Its my opinion, and you have yours. I do listen, take in, evaluate and then either agree or disagree with what other folks say.
There are few here that don't put any credence in what I post because I am not politically the same as the majority here. Like Ken and WRL said, I don't type anything that I wouldn't tell someone to their face. There are some here that talk pretty tough behind a keyboard, but would not dare say those same things to someone's face. If in fact these tough talkers would say these things to someone's face, they are either one tough SOB, or a very STUPID SOB. My guess though would be the latter.
