@isabelle_86:  I hate when posters give you flack for nothing, but I must admit some of it is in the internet delivery (that is; with no inflection)

I hope you don’t get these kinds of comments all the time, we all get snarkiness directed at us sometimes!

((hugs)) try not to let it get to you 🙂

@isabelle_86:  I think I read one or two posts on your daschund, is the training helping at all? Animal training will always be a debating issue because what some consider neccessary, others deem harsh and while some say one things work, it may not for you and the list goes on. *rolls eyes* Everyone on the internet is both a drama queen and an expert, and everyone is a keyboard-warrior! 😉

@isabelle_86:  It happens. It’s the internet and people are strangers. I wouldn’t waste a lot of time or engery worrying about it. The real people in your life (family, friends, etc) are who count. There is always a risk when you post something online that you won’t get validated or hear what you want to. If you can’t handle (or don’t want to handle) reading all kinds of various opinions then I wouldn’t post about those sensitive subjects.

@isabelle_86:  I’ve had trouble with some of this too. I’m pretty new to this, so it was very difficult to not take it personally. I’m trying to keep in mind that if people are rude to me, they are likely rude to a lot of people. I’m slowly learning to just skip over those ones and read on to the nice and polite bees. It’s really unfortunate that there are so many flat out rude people out there. Big hugs!

@isabelle_86:  You may want to avoid asking for advice about your dog. I read a few of your posts and it seems people are reacting negatively because you seem to not know how to take care of it. Like you got the dog without knowing what you were doing or what it needed. I could be wrong, but that’s what it looks like from what I read. 

You ask questions that shouldn’t really be directed to regular dog owners, because the information you are asking for is too specific to your dog. Maybe you should find a pet care website to go to for pet advice, or consult a vet. Or just cut down on the number of questions.

I hope things work out so that you don’t have to leave and you can enjoy your time here.

@isabelle_86:  I commented on your post last night, though it was definitely not nasty. I suggested you would get more helpful information from a dedicated pet forum than a wedding forum where people occasionally talk about pets. I also suggested you hire a trainer and if the dog is too much perhaps it should be rehomed. 

Having to close so many topics perhaps lends itself to some introspection. Why do you think you were getting responses you didn’t like? Are you misinterpreting tone?

I still think your pet questions will likely be better served somewhere with very experienced trainers.

@isabelle_86:  I think you need a thicker skin (especially on the internet)! I get all kinds of rude, nasty people replying on my threads. If they find me so objectionable, I am not sure why this insist on posting on every thread I write, lol. I consider where it’s coming from and ignore them. Focus on the nice people, ignore those who have nothing better to do than be mean.

In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter.

I think you’ve gotten good advice on the dog, especially considering this isn’t a pet forum. And I don’t see any rudeness on the couple of wedding-related threads I looked at.

Get thick skin if you’re going to be posting on the internet. Sometimes it’s challenging to read people’s tones, and other times folks really are downright mean when they’re behind a computer. But most of the time I think people get upset on here because they don’t get the praise and positivity they expect. If you’re afraid of negative reactions and critique, then don’t post topics that invite opinions.
