Fragile egos from Polywifen's blog

One thing I have noticed is that a lot of people can't handle constructive criticism and react very defensively to it. All I can say to it is, if you can't handle a bit of online criticism, you DEFINITELY cannot handle polygamy.  This is not the life for the very sensitive.

The others......well FlyingCloud......you tell me?Most of what I write is tongue in cheek, which is also very hard to interpret online, I am therefore very used to clarifying myself and making myself better understood if I do, unintentionally hurt fe...See more
