If I have to avoid my premium membership this way, I will. But I'm not giving up my fight for the right to refuse gifts.

And you have no right to hate me for my views. I want to be able to regift things for my friends. You should be praising me for my generosity.

Amy: Don't take this the wrong way, I don't think people hate you for your generosity, but I do think perhaps people are annoyed by how... pushy you can be about your opinions. Or at least that's how I feel you come off. Remember this, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and no one person has to agree with another person. You shouldn't get mad if people don't agree with you about certain issues. It's great that you're firm about what you believe in, but I think people are getting annoyed with you because you come off as thinking that they SHOULD agree with you about certain things when it is really a matter of personal preference. Be careful with the way you write things and post things. If you tick too many people off because they feel you're being opinionated, you could get banned from DA, and I don't want that.

Thanks for the pointers. The way I see it, I'm fighting for my rights.

Amy: Yes, I understand, but you might want to go about it a different way. For example, and I hope you won't be mad about this, but while I think you are entitled to your opinion about gifts, I'd be lying if I said I agree with you.

Well, because you're my friend, could you please support me even though you disagree? I'd do the same thing for you. It's what friends are supposed to do.

Amy: I do think you're entitled to your own opinion and that people shouldn't hate you for stating it, but I'm afraid I can't post something on my profile that I don't agree with. It goes against my own moral code of honesty.

Okay, but I'll do it for you because friends should.

Amy: I'm sorry. I just don't know how to be supportive of you without appearing as though I agree with you.

Don't you think you're taking your generosity thing a little too far. I can understand you wanting the best for your friends and trying to have an option to regift things but moving accounts to get away from a premium membership? Can't you just except the fact that you have one and most the most of it? It kinda seems like you're being a little ungrateful about it and your "always wanting to do the right thing" seems kinda fake.
I'm not hating or trolling, I'm just saying. Don't get me wrong though, I still think you're a nice person.

Thanks for the pointers, and sorry. I feel guilty about it. I often wish I didn't. Sometimes I almost wish I didn't have a conscience at all.
