  • I have no idea. I suppose it depends on the question.

  • i guess because people wonder why you asked US then. I don't assume anything anymore on here!

  • I saw your question and raised my eyebrows at that response. No where did you mention it bothered you, you were just asking, I got it =)

  • If often depends on the tone you take with your question. Also, most of the time when we question another person's action it is because we are not happy about it. Perhaps it is because your question sounded like you were offended at someone making an assumption. We are all hidden behind screens here and can only go by what we read... tone and writing style says a lot.

  • I was not directing this question to you DarkFaery. I have seen this a lot on the questions in here so I wanted to ask. UGH, not everything is about you.

  • you're right
    you assumed I thought you were mad
    you made this question
    I assumed you were referring to me since this was directly after.

    you know what they say when you assume... ;o)

    hakuna matata!

  • I didn't assume you were, just said to not get upset by it. And the "you" was a general you, not YOU specifically since I know you're referring to me.

    In public forums, why do people always assume that "you" means them specifically when there are multiple responses?
