LOL, I'm wondering if I'm the "preachy" person, too. I do tend to be solutions-oriented. I hope PT doesn't suffer a sudden reduction in suggestions and advice as people become self-conscious, because I like getting suggestions!

i am the preachy one, not either of you! and let me say that starting a thread like this is a bit misleading because people might think it's about a song. i would suggest that instead of trying to be coy just state your message outright so everyone who has an opinion about anything to do with your idea can contribute. i hope i solved that!

how do you know you are the preachy one? Did the OP tell you? What's your PT name?

I think that 4:27 post is a "funny." At least I read it that way -- and I LOL'ed. :-D

I think we all just need to relax. Everybody quit taking things so personally and learn to be more like me. Let me give you some advice about how to do that....

question - if someone is being preachy and you don't want to put up with it, then why keep reading? just skip over whatever they are typing. why read the entire thing, then complain about them being preachy?

DAMN, Your so vain, this isn't about you..... and I thought differently about it.... Here's some of my new thoughts listening right now....

You had me several years ago and I was still quite niave....(and much heavier)

But you gave away the things you loved ( Give away those bad foods)

I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee (not anymore, those dreams aren't cloudy)

And your horse naturally won - (of course, you win everyday making the right choices)

Your where you should be all the time and when your not your with the wife of a close friend ( I'm heading to the gym or to the street to walk, that's where I SHOULD BE)

Could be me too. But I say if they don't want to be preached to, then leave if it's too annoying & they are affraid to say something nicely.

I also had a preachy/know it all/Condesending person in Spotlight. Finally told them to just back off cause they didn't get the nice hints that were dropped earlier. After that they didn't have much to say at all. Sometimes the truth hurts!

Could be me. I often stick my foot in my mouth and watch the other person get increasingly uncomfortable because they don't want to hear the truth. Whatever, they should know not to ask me in the first place.
