If you're upset with someone

why post about it anon for everyone to see instead of talking about it with them directly? Anonymous accusations about things without proof to back it up don't really do anything but make you look like an anonymous troll (especially when you're talking about something that everyone saw and knows didn't mean what you're trying to say it meant).

I realize, this probably seems a bit hypocritical, but since the comment was anon, there's nobody I CAN send a pm to. If there was, I'd be more than happy to. If you really care that much about what was said, and you REALLY believe it meant what you're claiming it meant, why not discuss it directly? Seems if you really care about your "friend" you'd do that much for them.

  • You like to post messages elsewhere for people to read and poke fun.

    Really? I'd love to see a link to that, since it's something I've never done. You really do need help, sweetie.

  • if you contact someone you're upset with, then it's probably considered harassment.

    Only if you're a bitch when you do it. There are a lot of people here who I've had disagreements with about things that have been taken to PMs in a perfectly civil manner. Most of them are on my friends list now.

  • Some people just don't know how to grab the bull by the horns.
    I'm not particularly confrontational either, but I will just let it go, not make post after post about someone who ruffled my feathers. I would be more likely to send a PM if I just couldn't let something go than to post about it. But I guess everyone is not me, so that's why other people handle it differently.
