Why not use the Journals for venting?

The Answers section is more for asking questions you have and getting answers. Why use it to vent without asking questions instead of using the Journals section for venting?

I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, I'm genuinely curious.

  • I understand where your coming from. A question does need to be asked.

  • You are right but it really doesn't bother me where they vent.

  • I take it to the people who just complain about something other than ask a question. A lot of them, I've noticed, haven't been on the site too long. I'm sure they just don't know the proper place to vent.

  • IN MY OPINION :) I don't believe in "venting", it's a sugar coated name for , bitching, complaining, or talking bad about someone. I figure if and when I decided to do that , it won't be called I think another reason they do it, is to be anon...

  • Musicmom, you can write a journal post and be anonymous.
