yeah I don’t get it either, and it really frustrates me. This is why i typically like to stay away from forums.

@kenya.latham.1:  If you are referring to your other thread, no one was rude or mean to you.  You seem to interpret disagreeing with you as being rude and mean.

When you’re looking for meanness, you’ll find it awfully quick…

@kenya.latham.1:  If you are referring to the same thing I’m thinking about (and PP) – no one was being mean to you. Everyone put in their two cents about why someone acted they way they did. They were not attacking your personality or friendship. 

That being said, many women are not mean. I know many women, and they are all nice to me as I am to them.

@kenya.latham.1:  Not sure exactly what thread you’re talking about, but I think everyone’s interpertation of “nasty” or “mean” can vary from person to person.  Some people are brutally honest, while other say things with a softer touch.  The reality is that sometimes when we think something is mean, it’s just an honest answer that we don’t want to face.

I can only think of a few Killer Bees. Almost everyone has a strong opinion, though–that’s the best part about internet anonymity!

@housebee:  I would argue some people are also hypersensitive. As far as the internet goes, this place is about as tame as it gets. There are many threads I refuse to jump in to because there’s no way I could do it gently. In the other forums I participate in, neither I nor anyone else would hesitate. Frankly, it makes things far more interesting and I like the challenge of having to defend my views in an articulate manner.

*sigh* I feel like these types of threads keep popping up. I typically don’t see many bees that are outright mean but many do have strong opinions. When you post on the internet you need to realize that not everyone will agree with you and also that you can’t always decipher the proper tone. Something that could sound nice if said in person can sound mean if you read it the wrong way.
