Is there one (or more) user on here that you can count on to be a Debby Downer or be rude when she answers?

It is against the rules to name names and that would be rude of us to do so.... so a simple yes or no will suffice. :)

But am I alone here? I have two that seem to have nothing better going on in their lives than to be rude.

  • Even the Anon are known by those of us that are frequent Answerers - their style of writing, they are easily identified. We may not know their true identities but they are pretty much pegged.

  • There are a few. It's funny when they go anon and you have a pretty good idea of who they are.

  • Oh, absolutely! I can count on the same people voting me down on every answer I give, whether it's about politics or pets, and those same people will be negative on every question I ask, too.... Such is life.

  • I do not like when you receive a thumbs down when all you' re doing is answering a question without profanity, rudeness and then you get mocked and just go Huh?? Are you for real? Get a life already.... But cafe mom has beed like this for awhile. It actually has improved signifincantly and now there are adult conversations with valid question and answer.

  • It is very upsetting to have those on here, but I guess there is only so much that can be done. The majority of people on here are sincere, but then as you called them, the Debby Downers start attacking someone for their opinion. It should be only adults here, and everyone should be allowed to express an opinion without being bashed by someone else.I think it happens partly because no one knows who they are, and they try to take the upper hand, and then it becomes a power game. Maybe they're just having a bad day, but more likely a bad life. They get upset because they've made bad decisions that have resulted in complications in their life, and then they start blaming others, or wanting others to say it's ok,and they start looking for the least little slight or politically incorrect statement, and pounce on it as an example that someone else is doing something wrong, and in their own mind that makes them better. IMHO.

    Answer by arenad at 4:44 PM on Nov. 18, 2010

  • Oh yeah. Being a far-right leaning, "fundie" Christian Conservative, I can count on the fact that there are a few people who will automatically vote my answers down, without even reading them, much less considering what I say. But, that's ok. That's their problem,not mine. I'm very comfortable with who I am, and very confident in my choices, beliefs, and morals. Oh,and by the way, "fundie" is not an insult. Not to a true Christian. In fact, I wear it as a badge of honor,FYI.
