She's Always a Woman: The John Lewis Ad

Yes, it's an advertising for UK-based department store John Lewis, but it's a particularly well-done ad about a woman's life. Featuring a song "She's Always a Woman" by Fyfe Dangerfield/originally by Billy Joel). I'm a sucker for things like this.

Ted, seems you totally missed the point. I am not a hypocrite. I was not saying you COULDN'T comment on someone else. I was replying to your erroneous interpretation that what I said - that you had a small coal-of-a-heart - was because you didn't like the video.
And that is NOT what I said.
I tried to explain that my comment was based not on your likes or dislikes but on your comment which clearly said that people who liked the video have problems. THAT was heartless.
I hope this makes it clear now.
Just in case -
You said 1. You didn't like the video and 2. Everyone who cried has issues.
I said you were heartless.
You ASSUMED I meant you were heartless because you weren't moved.
I explained you were heartless because you said people who cried have issues.
I NEVER condemned what you said. I never said you couldn't say it.
I just said your heart must be a tiny speck of coal because you can't begin to empathize with people who DID like it.
No hypocrisy there.
I also never claimed to be taking a higher moral ground.
I really don't know where you get all of this other stuff from - why you feel the need to go on the war path. I assume it must be a kind of knee-jerk reaction because of some deep-set bitterness.
Maybe some of those Korean videos will help calm you down, Ted.

If it makes you feel better to call me a troll, then go right ahead.

Trolls don't have opinions; they say what they need to in order to start arguments and inflame them. I was responding to China Doll's criticisms and pointing out the hypocrisy in China Doll's statements.

But, I guess it's okay for you to insult people whose opinions don't jive with your own. That's kinda sad.

China Doll. Your Dick Cheney comment reveals a few things about your own character. Your opinion is polarized. You are not above stooping to insult and to belittle others who disagree with your opinion.

When you are called out on it, you try to hide behind the flimsy defense that YOU were taking the moral high ground.

Or was "Because his mommy never loved him" a caring and compassionate response?

Come on, China Doll, no need to be a hypocrite with someone you'll never meet in real life.

Like you, I'm a sucker for commercials like this, as cheesy as they may be. They always depress me a little though because they show how short life is. To see it all pass by in a minute and half is somewhat disturbing.
