Yes, I believe it is not your intent but your delivery makes you come across as a know it all, literally, on virtually every subject discussed here. It’s ok not to set everyone straight on everything. Discretion is what seems to be missing. I’m pretty geeky when it comes to knowledge but unless it really matters, I rarely correct adults on things of relative unimportance. IMO, it is, as I’ve stated, off putting and a bit rude.
It is unfortunate that she has been told she comes off as condescending for years... back to when she was Courier770.
She was told the same thing about her nit-picking and know-it-all attitude by dozens of members in 2012. She still refuses to accept the fact that people find her off-putting 7 years later.https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-80894-30.html#1507913She often goes off on a tangent about something (such as IQ teating 🙄) that doesn’t actually relate to discussion of the topic, but that she CHOOSES to stand on her soapbox and lecture about.
I’m not certain how many times this has to be explained to a person before she can comprehend her tone and attitude make others angry.

It's not a deflection. You're simply wrong.
RockIES is unreasonable.. trying to DICTATE how others post on HER TOPIC!https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-576805-6.html#13202169https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-576805-6.html#13201117
Quote RockIES DEMANDING how others post on her topic:
I've mentioned this earlier, today has been set as a national day of mourning for President George H. W. Bush. Can we please give HIM this day and not focus on Trump??? It is after all, only one day.
She DEMANDS AGAIN!https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-576805-6.html#13202169
Quote RockIES the Dictator:
I'm so disappointed that for one day, so many members here could not cut back the rhetoric and name calling to truly honor President Bush on the day set aside for mourning him.

Mourning doesn't necessarily mean heartbreak, just a sense of loss. Still today belongs to him and no other.
That said, none of us have the right to dictate to others how or what they chose to discuss on this forum.

You are relentless. You should have been a prosecutor. I see you in the role of Javert in Les Misérables, or perhaps Bernardo Gui in the Name of the Rose.https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-581280-5.html#13294788
