  • Lots of reasons. Maybe b/c they read it the wrong way. Maybe they dont understand your point b/c its hard to hear tone and inflection in peoples voice when typed. Maybe they just want a good fight lol.

    Why what are you saying...are you saying I am taking your question the wrong way...huh...huh??? FINE!

  • Because often times the OP doesn't give enough information and people jump to conclusions. Also a lot of the time OPs are looking for ego stroking and get butthurt when people don't agree with them. And sometimes people are just being assholes and looking to bash.

  • I totally agree with SleepingBeautee's reasons but would also like to add that sometimes it's due to a severe lack of reading comprehension skills. Lots of that on Cafemom.

  • maybe they are trolls and looking for an excuse to be nasty or don't fully read the question. It's the same reason someone is called racist when they aren't, it's an assumption based on incorrect facts. It's all how someone else takes it

  • There are many factors.
    1. It could be that they are sensitive because they have something similar going on in their lives at the moment
    2. It could be the way the question was written-grammar and such
    3. It could be that the person is in a bad mood
    4. It could be that the individual that asked the question, ticked that person off before so now they are going on attack
    5. It could be that the person is just mean spirited.
    6. Or it could be that the person is an individual who speaks English as a second languare and misunderstood. CM is NOT just an site for English speaking people. Many people from all over the world do come here and then get blasted for being uneducated when in reality they are highly educated, but just trying to communicate in another language.

  • On the computer it's hard to read expressions. And I think a lot of time the post is just skimmed instead of truly read, so they don't get all the info straight. And of course some women are just catty sometimes. lol.

  • Depends on how the person reads it.

  • maybe it was worded weird

    Answer by kylansmommy09 at 10:43 AM on Mar. 26, 2011

  • It depends on HOW the question is WRITTEN. Have you seen some of them? Long long long strings of words with no punctuation, text words, confusing details, do you get the true meaning from the garbled stuff some posters present to us?
    AND,yes, lack of reading comprehension too.
    I wonder how many posters have gone past 6th grade? By the way they function here at CM, not many have a decent education.
