    This cite blows. Why can't the people just respond with respect instead of correcting your improper terms. And on top of that why do people answer with generic answer like "well it's not diffiante you will get the scholarship." That must really hurt people. Just give them thoughtful feed back and be respectful. Please and Thank you.

    (Ps I'm probably gonna get sh*t on for this thread)

    Site, definite, ? Not .
    Thicker skin holds up better in an academy, and in the military in general.

    dilettante and diffident are both so close to "diffiante"

    Perhaps the forums should create "safe spaces".

    The OP making rude remarks is a sure way to gets lots of advice from others who participate here. However, not sure the advice will be what you were looking for.

    I find that on social media sites people want to hear affirmations of what they believe and not the truth. Everyone does not write in a sugar coated style. If you find something to harsh, please scroll by instead of criticizing the manner in which information is delivered.

    I disagree. This "cite" is good.

    I found this site extremely in formative and respectful.
    I guess it's has to do with how one looks at a half full glass of water.
