This is NOT directed at anyone, I am just wondering.

If you see a question do you ever think it is directed at you? Example: You might be the reason why that person asked that question because they either saw your question or your answer before they asked the question. It might feel like the question has to do with your answer from another question.

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

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

    hakuna matata!

  • People are leery... this happens all the time. Most of the time it is obvious, though... not thought necessary.

  • I've had people pull my quotes directly and ask a question like "do you agree?" and then I commented on one of the stirs articles and had the blogger quote me and say she was still annoyed about it. Which kind of annoyed me... don't put yourself out there with your personal life if you aren't open to opinions.

  • It probably does happen, but that's the cool thing here that one discussion can spark another. I guess if I thought it was about something I said I would at least know I had made some kind of impact.

  • Generally they name, or quote me when they have an issue... Otherwise I don't assume anything.

  • This place is really cool like that (:

  • Actually, I've had a few questions that without doubt were directed to me, to the point that other posters came to my defense! But generally, I know they aren't and even those that are I don't take personally... Really, what's the point? If anything it's a compliment, at least it means someone is noticing and paying attention to my posts...
