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?

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.
