- You’re a terrible person
- No one likes you
- We can’t get along
- We all suck
- The hive is unsupportive
What it does mean:
- We have opinions and if you ask for one we will give it
- You’re getting a new perspective on things
It’s the internet. Chill out.
From now on, I’m not commenting on threads where the OP asks for opinions and then gets angry when they are not what she wants to hear. I hope you will join me!
ETA: There are some exteremly intelligent women on here who have seriously made me see things differently on certain threads.
This also isn’t directed at a particular thread. Just all threads I see like this.

I agree. And I’m also getting annoyed someone asks for advice on how to handle something, and Bees pour their hearts out giving advice and perspective and trying to help, and then the OP comes back and writes that she’s decided to not take any action after all. “Thanks, Bees – I’ve decided to just not say/do anything about this.” Really?

@ProfessorGirl: I agree. I’m also a fan of when someone asks for opinions with the caveat “I’m not changing x,y,z” or in the comments they make statements contrary to wanting any opinion whatsoever…so why even ask?

I agree! I think there’s a huge difference between being rude and giving (asked for) advice. I’ve seen OP’s blow up over what they take to be a personal insult, when all it is is the advice they asked for! It’s hard to hear what you don’t want to hear, but if you can’t handle it, don’t ask for advice on an internet forum!

Amen! I try to avoid giving advice to the ones who obviously don’t want it. I’ve seen waaaay too many snarky fights result from someone just wanting to be told she’s right and someone else giving her honest advice to the contrary.

I agree! I get myself in way too much trouble on WB involving myself in those types of threads. I am going to try and just walk away when someone asks for an opinion on a heated subject. After being called retarded the other day I just decided it is not even worth it. Why put the effort into formulating a response to someone’s problem when said someone is most likely going to throw a hissy fit? Not doing it anymore.

I think that everyone could do with remembering this comic sometimes.
It’s really just not worth the fight…
@mixtapehearts: I hope you flagged the post where the person called you that. That’s so not okay around here.

@mixtapehearts: Hahah YES!
PS – I agree, OP. I got myself into that argument the other day…it was fruitless and I now feel dirty ;o)

@MrsElopement: i agree. if you don’t really want or can’t really handle opinions, don’t ask for them.
@MrsElopement: i didn’t recognize you at first. i like your new married avatar.
