@graste: If it’s pure arrogance or snark, and not a misunderstanding, just ignore them. Actually I wish it was as easy to ignore presumptuous and snarky people in real life as it is online. Can you imagine if a holographic X floated above the person’s head and you could touch it with your finger to make them and their noise disappear as you go on your way…
Also, it’s good to remember, you’re not the only one who takes note of the snarky/high-horsey peeps. 😀 Lots of us read some of *those* responses and either cringe, shake our heads, laugh, or roll our eyes.
Where’s that Buffy/popcorn thingy (gif?)?
Disagreeing with you =/= snarky.
It’s a little presumptuous to assume that the rest of us have crazy relationships with our parents and broken homes.
I’m not being snarky or presumptive when I say that this sort of thread often comes across as more of an attention-seeking missile than it does a genuine query.
On the whole I’d say this forum is an extremely supportive place. It is not a nest of vipers. But much like when you start a new job, move to a new area or whatever, it helps to get a “feel” for the place before leaping, vociferously, into the unknown.
I’ve also read some of your previous posts. Unfortunately, at least two elements of one thread cover issues that can best be lumped into the general category of “This May Not End Well”. Only it doesn’t help to rubbish the choice of everyone who opted for a civil ceremony when attempting to justify the additional “wedding” you plan to have despite already being married. To then assume it is someone else’s responsibility to pay for your honeymoon was the icing on the cake. It also helps if you, yourself, don’t respond with presumptive comments about people coming from broken homes.
Now these are all your choices. You are happy with them and ultimately it is none of our business how you plan your marriages. But a brief time to “get” the tone of the forum might have helped avoid what you describe as snarky or presumptive posts but what others might well interpret as honest responses to a question posed.
I’m just having a hard time comprehending the passive aggressiveness of creating this post.
