Some posters use the “this is the internet” line as an excuse to be unnecessarily bitchy. When you’ve been here for long enough, you’ll figure out which bees will offer you honest advice without being a total c**t about it, and you’ll seek out those responses when you write a post. You just need to look past the snark – this is a great community, so don’t let a few bad apples ruin it for you.

Some times it’s not so much snarky posting as it is people saying what we don’t want to hear. I always try to keep that possibility in mind.

@graste:  in short, learn not to take the internet so seriously.

I feel like sometimes people really don’t know or don’t have enough information. I try to explain more. I hate feeling like some one isn’t understanding what I mean.  Sometimes it is really difficult to communicate over the internet because you often can’t tell a person’s tone. Sometimes someone sounds like they are being sarcastic when they aren’t trying to be, or honest questions come off as rude.
If you can’t or won’t give all the infromation on a topic it’s a little tough for someone to understand completely. It might come off sounding like a completely different situation. Not that I have always put the full story of everything out there. I wouldn’t curse someone out when maybe they really don’t understand something. i think I would try to explain better. Of course, not everyone is going to agree on everything. Some people are going to think everything you are doing is wrong. There’s not much we can do about that. We are putting ourselves out there for opinions.

I’ve yet to get this feeling from my post but I’ve seen other posts where op asks a question, others misunderstand and just comment negatively. I don’t get why they don’t ask before assuming but whatevs.

Oh puh-lease. I was one of the early posters on another thread of yours, and I beleive you responded back to my post with more snark and presumptions than the rest of the posters. I answered your question on that board (your honeymoon is what you make of it) and since it looks like that thread has closed while I was spending time with my OBVIOUSLY dysfunctional and pitiful family-I’ll respond to your question here. 

 

Toughen up. Seriously. I answered your question, and also happened to very much disagree with your approach to some other things mentioned in your posts. No one else is you, and no one else will think exactly the way you do. It would go against every fiber of my own personal code of ettiquette and respect for the people that I care about to do some of the things you are doing. Sorry you got butthurt about a strong response- I feel passionately about both of the topics I was discussing.

 

Others will always disagree with you- you’re posting to a Very large community with a diverse set of opinions. Not all of us try to sugarcoat our opinions just for the sake of sounding nicer.

Some people on this site (including some replying here!) prefer to post with majorly bitchy responses rather than something more moderate.  Meh, best to just ignore them.  However, most people here are helpful and if they disagree, they’ll do so respectfully.

If someone on the internet reads your post and “doesn’t understand” your situation, it’s because you haven’t explained it well or provided the necessary context. All they have to go on is what you write, after all.

I just don’t see any reason to get nasty with people just because of differences in opinion. People could stand to be a bit nicer I think, on the internet and IRL. This isn’t directed at anyone in particular, just an observation from reading the boards and some of the responses and PMs I have received. Luckily there are a lot of positive, helpful people here to balance things out.

@AB Bride:  Yes- another thread that she started (since closed). When some people disagreed with some of her choices, (ie: expecting others to pay for her wedding expenses, without them offering) she decided to tell us that we all must have terribe and dysfunctional family relationships
