Why do some of the people on here have to be so damn bitchy or negative? ask a simple question and all you get is crap from crappy people. If your not goign to be helpful then why comment on the question? All the negativity needs to stop, seriously grow the heck up.

  • i agree with u!! sometimes ppl have to take their feelings of distress or whatever out on another person to feel better. this is of course a very poor way to deal with anything but using the anon button allows anyone to hide so they say whatever comes to mind even if its mean , take no responsibility for the remarks and temporailly think that they made another feel as bad as they feel at that moment. it doesnt last long as it is not a effective way to release anger, frustration or just being in a bad mood. but it is a way that does give immediate release and sometimes thats what an immature person is looking for. the only way to deal with that kind of an answer is to ignore it. that person was not in the right frame of mind at that moment to gv a good answer anyway, so consider the source and forget it and move on to the answers that gv some good advice and deliver it in an appropriate manner. thats what i do!

  • i agree with you 100%. but it's not going to stop. we're all just going to have to learn how to skip past the negativity. giving it attention only feeds the beast, fuels the fire, kwim?

  • ps= i didnt mean to say that everyone who uses the anon is not taking responsibilty. i dont see any reason not to use the anon botton as long as the answer is appropriate and not unkind to the op or as u stated in the original question.

  • because, misery loves company, and some people...a lot of people are so miserable that they love to just lash out at random people. Here's the kicker, they're probably more guilty of the crap that they bash others for than they care to admit.

  • It sux when you get a neg/rude answer. There are so many reasons why someone would respond in such a way.....

    -they need to literally grow up (the answerer is YOUNG!! and doesn't know what she is talking about)
    -hormones!!!! (we've all had those days.....)
    -they read the question wrong
    -they were thinking of something else
    -what they wanted to say didn't come out right (this happens to me sometimes!)
    -english is not their native language, and they make some mistakes

    You just have to overlook the negatives and not take it personally.

  • *kicking and screaming* But I dont wanna grow up and you cant make me!!! lol

    No, really some ppl are just that way. I dont get it but it seems that by putting others down or by spreading that sourpuss mood of thiers they make themselves feel better.

    Sux i know.
