An essay on understanding India's caste 'system' currently tops my list of things I don't wish to learn.
I just can't imagine it doing me any good?

@gemlog @KayKap you don't think learning for its own sake holds any value? It's interesting, that should be enough

@Aleums Not everyone has an interesting in learning about India's caste system. And please, one's taste is not to be forced on others. If @gemlog is not interested or doesn't wish to learn, that's perfectly fine. And, please don't make assumptions as to who is interested and who is not...

@KayKap @gemlog that is fair. It just seems odd to me that someone would pop up in the comments to declare they have no interest in learning the thing.

@Aleums @KayKap
I didn't mean it to pop in the comments, sorry. I took the original author off the post and thought it was only going to Kirti.
My bad.

@gemlog @KayKap ah, no worries then. Sorry for my confrontational tone 🙏

@Aleums @KayKap
Not at all! I'm going to have to sensitize my skin, because I didn't find you to be confrontational at all.
It *was* rude of me to show up in the thread being contrarian for no apparent reason.
I really only meant it as an aside to one person.

@Aleums A mall request, if you feel something has popped into your timeline by mistake, ask for clarification, please, we can chat/discuss it out... @gemlog

@Aleums @KayKap
Normally - and I try to learn a quite a lot actually.
In this case I don't want to become (possibly) infected with a new kind of human hate largely unknown to me at present.
I could create a list of things *you* would decline learning too, I'm sure ;-)

@gemlog Is a perfectly complicated topic that makes our heads spin... But no, I don't see you using it anywhere soon...
