    I'd say, damn near always. But then, it still doesn't stop me.

    I'd say NEVER! Be nice, please, as a baseline. Then if things go pear-shaped at least they are Politely pear-shaped.

    I had a bf whose face was a bit frozen, so it wasn't easy to read his actual feelings sometimes. But at least he had a frozen Smile. It helped him quite a lot in life.

    It's good enough - but sometimes it means problems aren't addressed. Imo, anyway. :p

    There's a very thin line between nice, dishonest and rude. I think it depends on the person you are interacting with.

    I prefer civility to niceness. Sometimes my behavior deserves an other-than-'nice' response, and another person will be doing me a favor by responding to me with what I need instead of what 'politeness' would call for.

    From what I've seen, some people tend to show respect when you treat them like crap.

    Good enough for what? Your query doesn't make a lot of sense.

    I'm nice all the time. I never understand, then I do, why I attract the demented shit. Lot in life I suppose. To be a dementer trainer....Get's out whip and cross.
