When you post on a forum, people can only comment based on what you post.  

Maybe forums aren’t for you.

It definitely is frustrating and I see it happen here a lot, but what else can you expect from strangers on the internet?

introester :  I agree that there are some unnecessarily harsh responses on this forum, but as others have pointed out- we have to go off of what we read here.

I would suggest not posting anything too personal here if you can’t handle the assumptions/honesty/judgement/etc

I find it frustrating when people ask for advice and then argue that the people giving it don’t know what they’re talking about. If you’ve already decided that a group of random strangers doesn’t know enough to give you valid advice, then I don’t know why that person would bother to make a post in the first place.

 

And if incorrect assumptions were made- by all means, follow up with a reply that explains the situation better. Or, if you can, edit your original post. A lot of people don’t read follow up comments.

I know this happens a lot on this website, but I don’t see how that happened to you on any of your threads, so I’m not sure why you are complaining.

Whatever Karen. You and I both know what this is really about. 🙄

If you want me to stop watching you through the windows while you sleep then just come out and say it. But to act like I don’t know that your breath smells like onions and armpits in the morning is a lie.

People can only respond to what you post. If you post that you are waiting on a tax return to buy a ring and other people know tax returns are up in the air, they are free to post that. I don’t see how that is “assuming you know everything about that person”. It’s just literally responding to the words you put on the post.

Tatum :  all of this. We’re an unbiased group giving, by definition, an outsider’s opinion on a situation. Posters can take everything with a grain of salt, especially if they haven’t shared every detail for whatever reason, but that’s what happens on an internet forum.

Surely this post will be closed soon… for obvious reasons

introester :  I understand that it might get frustrating when you have one line in a post, that is mainly included for description, that members focus on. Sometimes the majority of your responses are focused on that one thing, even when it isn’t the main point or question of your post. When that happens, you can try and explain/clarify if you want. However, you can also choose to ignore irrelevant responses and instead focus on other responses. You got a good mix in the post I assume you’re referring to. You don’t have to respond to every comment on your post.

If the advise doesn’t apply to you because the commenter is making off-base assumptions, then just don’t listen to it. I don’t understand why it’s worth getting upset over.
