@MrsFuzzyFace:  Somebody PMed me with the name of the bee that I had you mixed up with. So, I was definitely wrong about that bit. Sorry!

If somebody tries to reply to me in a way that I find personally offensive, I usually just back off and let it go. If I find the topic itself offensive, I either leave it alone or say my piece and then back off. I’m not a huge fan of confrontation, even on the internet, but it’s rare that something would get to the point that it would make me want to run away completely. Sad as it is, this is one of the only places I have to go for good girl gossip/ advice, and I really enjoy it. So I plan to stay.

If anything I might stay to annoy the person more Wink

I think after awhile people sort of get a reputation on the boards. I’m sure I have one, I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. Sometimes self awareness is a good thing. If a bunch of people are noticing “Hey, you come off as a little full of yourself” or whatever it can be hurtful, but it can also make future postings easier for you if you know to tone it down in order to get better responses. I’ve gotten “hate mail” before and at first I was like “Eff that chick what the hell does she know?!” but then I went back and thought about it, found truth in it, and moved on. If you’re going to waste time on a forum you should at least get what you want out of it, and sometimes that requires a change in internet tone.

No. Probably not anyway.

I would leave due to boredom, too much bitchiness, or lack of tolerance.

I get very hurt by things people say but I also have absolutely no interaction with people in real life, so…

I guess I wouldn’t stop coming here but I’d avoid certain threads.

I personally just learn who to avoid on the boards– I get tired of posters that just use the boards as a blog or seem to need too much attention or constant support?  Like we’re grown ups, I don’t need you to tell me how special you are and you shouldn’t need me to reassure you about every choice in your life?  WB can definitely give great support and advice sometimes, but we’re not your counselor (or your doctor!) and I’m just going to get annoyed if you post a million times about yourself and don’t take any advice or make any changes.  If anything, I’d leave because I finally got fed up with reading the same posts everyday or not being allowed to say “girl, grow up!” because it’s too offensive.

It takes quite a lot for someone on the internet to offend me.  I cannot think of one person who has said anything that affected me in many years.

I have been offended and it made me take a break for a while. I realize some people are very opinionated and respond with their emotions I dont take it personal. In my head I am fabulous and what someone says doesnt make me or break me.

Nothing happens when you’re offended. When you say that you are offended, it means nothing besides the fact that you didn’t like something someone said. It does not grant you any sort of additional rights. so deactivating your account just shows … nothing.
